Events: Hello Etsy

Starting on Friday asking my followers the question… ‘What brooch and earrings shall I wear?’ Then going by train to Tilburg, where I met with Hanneke. We did a sleep over at her parents house so we were both closer to Eindhoven. So the next morning, rise and shine… up to Hello Etsy. And boy did it was good! All these amazing talks, inspiring people and meeting fellow Etsians. My head was packed with useful info and I didn’t want to miss a minute. So the only picture I took was one of Kruti Patel, with the […]

Broesj for the first time in a ‘real’ shop

It’s a historical day. Broesj is for the first time for sale in a ‘real’ shop. Yeah! Check out this first snap shot, took by the shop owner herself. Do you see the brooches (and my business cards?) hanging on a thread? I really like what they have done. It is inspired on my brooch-display I made for shops to use. I saw some other photographs, the shop looks amazing. I would love to go there someday, but for now I’m unfortunately to busy to drop by in Groningen (it’s quit far from Amsterdam). If you […]

Link loved: My Milk Toof

Yesterday I went to visit the dental hygienist. It was not so much fun (what did I say, it was horrible). But I know it’s for a good cause. Speaking of nice teeth, today I would like to share my favorite blog with you guys. Have you ever visited My Milk Toof? Made by blogger Inhae Renee Lee. She invented the two little tooth uhh guys called Ickle and Lardee. They go on the greatest adventures. A must see for a rainy day. photo shared from the My Milk Toof Blog, all rights belong to Inhae Lee from My […]

The Traveling Vintage Item – Part II

I just posted a tweet about the traveling item post part 1. But then Saskia, the sender of The Item, asked me if I saw the apple underneath the confetti-mountain. Apple? What apple?! So i ran to the confetti enveloppe, poured it onto a plate and there it was: an apple brooch! An unexpected hidden gem that was hidden in my house for a while. Thank you so much Sas!

The Traveling Vintage Item

I loveeee to find packages in my mailbox. And this weekend there was one, yes! Nicely wrapped in with my favorite twine. But wait, there was a small envelop on top! This made me smile. Saskia, one of my Twitter friends, is always telling the most hilarious stories about confetti on Twitter. This may sound a bit weird but you have to imagine a random tweet about a meal/day/feeling/whatever and then Sas will tweet :*throws confetti in the air” So when I opened the small envelop, you may guess it: there was CONFETTI :) In there […]
