Back on Tuesday (So I leave you with Yvestown)

April 8, 2007

Today is a good time for reflection. And baking yummy things. :) Stores are closed, the pace has slowed, and despite that it’s still 40F degrees and snowy here, there’s a bit of hope in the air and it tells me that daffodils will blossom soon, so no worries.

Back on Tuesday (So I leave you with Yvestown)
Have you visited the Flickr set of Yvestown? Yvonne Eijkenduijn lives in southern Netherlands, and her photos remind us all of what’s important – gathering with friends, good food, fresh flowers, and a home that reflects the personality and lifestyle of those living in it. Welcome to her world… (Yvonne has an amazing blog too – a total must-see!)

    I don’t think homes get any prettier than that! I would love to have my house like that but I think my boyfriend would have some objections, darn him!

    I love the splashes of pink and blue and pastels…and that crocheted rug is beautiful…

    What a horrible way to put the IKEA lamp!!!

  • Reply zita April 10, 2007 at 4:21 pm

    I’m not a fan of that lamp shade anyway- there are so many nicer lamp shades along the same lines, that one just doesn’t appeal to me. I don’t think the way Yvonne has used it is worth criticising though.

    I agree Zita, a little kindness goes a long way in the universe!

    Ok, I love this blog. Her home feels so soothing and peaceful and beautiful….oh I miss Europe!

    I have always thought that lamp was so odd, and looks like it’s trying hard to be interesting or arty. I really think that it’s used well in this room though — it adds a humorous touch.
