Sleeping in!

By | Family | No Comments

auping1We take turns on who is sleeping in in the weekends! Mette is an early bird and the weekend is no exception! Between 5.30 and 7 am it is time to ‘rise & shine’ is her opinion, preferably with a peanut butter sandwich. Last sunday it was my turn!auping 3 Because of busy times with Lennebelle Petites and being almost 20 weeks pregnant our bed is my favorite spot by far! With a fresh made bed with our new crispy white bed linen (a gift from Auping! so soft!), the sun shining in and a good breakfast  I enjoy it even more!

In a few months we will be sharing our bedroom with a little baby again. Hopefully I will spend much more time here by that time then I do now! Cuddling, feeding, singing, reading and lots of sleeping, I can’t wait! auping2(Auping Straight Stitch in white)

The Mother stories

By | Lennebelle Petites, photography, Uncategorized | One Comment


We did our first photoshoot for Lennebelle Petites. The photoshoots will be with cool mamma’s and their child(ren); the Mother stories. Inspiring mothers telling their stories and showing the love and special connection between them end their little ones.

I am always curious how other moms go about, how they balance life, their tips and tricks about motherhood, their favorite places and things to do, their moments of joy and fondest memories. This is what the Mother Stories will be all about!

And of course showing the first collection of all items by Lennebelle Petites! Soon more!

Perfect Little Love Nest

By | interior & design, travel | No Comments


This looks like the perfect ‘Little Love Nest’. We are dreaming about a small hideaway near the beach. Something simple and within nature. No hustle & bustle, computers, I-phones just good company, food, games, conversation, cuddling and sleep.

This treehouse consisting out of three different spaces is built by Peter Bahouth in Atlanta. Check out more here.


Making illustration designs for Coisa scarfs!

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetI am so excited about this new project! Kim, owner from Coisa, asked me if I wanted to design a scarf for the new spring/summer collection 2015. Together we talked about inspirations for the scarfs and we both made a moodboard. From this point I started drawing several different illustrations/prints for the scarfs. I was so glad Kim even picked out three designs. They will be printed on a soft, airy but full cotton/linen fabric for the perfect cosy wrap.
