Sunday on the island of Menorca.

An inspiring and colorful morning walk through Ciutadella and after lunch lazing on a turquoise bay.

What a wonderful way to start our vacation.

Soon new updates about our Menorca trip and i hope you don't mind the #menorcaspam on Instagram (it was a promise to my sweethearts at home ;)

soft pineapple sofa

The second pineapple rug is finished!
Today I've used it, to sit on as a soft garden bench cushion. From the first floor I saw this bright summer scene, went down for the camera, to share it with you and just now I found out the pineapple is upside down (haha, however still cool)

The first rug I made some months ago and it was not my intention to sell it.
A sweet blog follower from Autralia send me an e-mail, she would like to buy it because the rug would make the perfect wedding gift for her friends (and she couldn't crochet at all). I missed my huge pineapple the minute it was shipped and decided to make another one. It's quite a cool project and it doesn't take so much time to make it.

Do you feel like freshen up your place (or garden) with a pineapple rug?
You can find the PINEAPPLE PATTERN in my E T S Y shop.

Curiosities on the tiny table:

The pear jar is a gift from my sweetheart.
He bought the pear for me last Saturday at Lammie's Saturday shop in Dordrecht. (he knows what i like)
The vintage apple mirror is from Marseille.
The tile is a souvenir from Sevilla, we bought it in a antique shop years ago.
Old german book about trees from Berlin.

Sunday, June 21

We celebrated the longest day with a tiny midsummer dinner party for friends.

We were hoping for a warm summer evening with a dinner in the garden, but it rained most of the day, so we enjoyed the midsummer party in our kitchen.
The chef cooked a great summer meal and we enjoyed the longest day with a lovely bunch of people.

Cheers to summer!
