Urban Jungle Bloggers: watering plants

This months theme on Urban Jungle Bloggers is ‘Watering your plants – how do you take care of your greens?’ Here’s my secret: I’m very mean to my plants. I can afford to be, as I don’t have very fussy plants (yet). My trusty vintage...

Summer in the city

Boy, it’s been hot over the past few days. I really planned to do more with my free time but there you go. Today’s Monday and I’m back to work for a bit. These hot days did remind me that I’m really lacking in the summer clothes departement....

This old thing: the vintage dress that got away

So the vintage dress in the photos. Yes, that’s me. Attempting to look fabulously dramatic at the age of 18, a couple of years ago *coughs* (the round sunglasses give it away). It was my mothers dress and it was tiiiiny! I wouldn’t be able to wear it now....

Mouseblossom Markita shop now open!

Surprise! The official Mouseblossom Markita shop is now open! Dutch platform Markita contacted me about opening a shop with them and it did look like the place to sell my porcelain brooches… There are so many fabulous designers there! I’ve listed three...

iDEAL and SOFORT payments now possible! Also: new photos

Look, I took new photos for my Etsy shop! (and another soon to open shop, but more on that later ;)) Much crisper. Here’s another one, of the packaging: Cute, right? very happy with these. Oh and before I forget: Etsy has now activated iDEAL as a payment option,...

Urban Jungle Bloggers: Creative plant pots

So happy that Hanna from HuntersKitchen sold me these planters by Dutch ceramist Hannie Mein. The planters didn’t really fit in with the style of Hanna’s vintage shop and she was very pleased that I liked them so much and let me take them home for a very...

Super fast dress to skirt DIY and decluttering

In another effort to ‘Simplify my life‘ (read about my online efforts here and here): I’m getting rid of stuff. I’ve been reducing clutter in my cupboards by selling, donating to the local thriftshop and restraining myself from buying new...

A visit to Terra Maris botanical garden

Always nice to visit the grounds of Westhove Castle. You can walk around in the woods, dunes and beach are also very close by. The castle itself is a Stayokay hostel (I’ve even worked there for a season, years ago) and the former conservatory is home to Terra...

Customized Etsy ad

Well that’s fun, isn’t it? Want to customize the Etsy ad for your own shop? It’s so easy! Just go:...

New products in the shop

It has been very quiet in my Etsy shop. I’ve been so busy with lots of other things, but now I’m ready to put in some serious effort again. Although meanwhile I did reach the magic number of 100 sales, yay! Have you seen the new porcelain brooches and...

Window cat and other things I saw in Amsterdam

Oh Amsterdam, how I love you. Unfortunately I didn’t really have a lot of time to wander around the city this time because I was on my way to the Craft party, but I did manage to snap some quick photos with my iPhone (as always, avoiding the touristy places):...

The Etsy Craft party was so much fun!

The Etsy Craftparty by Ka-ching was so much fun! This is the flower I made of my own photos, during a workshop by Miranda of PuurAnders (she makes such beautiful things…) A little trickier than you’d think, I love the result. Annelies of Allihoppa gave a...
