Next sunday and monday (23 & 24 january) I will participate in the biggest fashion buyers fair in the Netherlands: De Modefabriek. This is the uportunity to meet other fellow designers and shops! I am here as part of the ‘Garagesale Extraordinaire’ held by Trash & Treasures.
When your are there and interested in Made by lennebelle or just want to say hi (always nice!) I will be at the Rai in Amsterdam, Industry Area: Hal 7 Amstelhal.
More information about De Modefabriek here.
My love loves his vintage Leica. To share his passion for analogue photography he decided to start a collective of people to share their interest and know how of analogue photography!
Do you live in or near Rotterdam, do you have a Diana F+, Holga, Polaroid, Leica, Canon or any other kind of camera which uses original film just sign up and get together to search for that perfect shot! More information here.
This weekend since a long long time I really did some shopping! With my friend Jolanda we went to The Hague where she treated me with a delicious high tea at the very cosy Lapsang (merci Jo’). I shopped this amazing blaser by Humanoid and some items by COS. I felt so spoilt since I have been making my own cloths for a year now (which is fun too)
This weekend my love went to Berlin with friends. This way I could join the Bread Exchange Programme from Malin who lives there! I really like the idea ‘Everything is not for sale’. Baking good bread and exchanging it for nice products (to make bread), ideas and help. The bread is still in my boyfriend’s backpack but I just got this photo. We traded a ……bread (don’t know what it is yet) for chestnut flour which I bought on a farmers market in Italy and a bracelet from Made by lennebelle. Can’t wait for the bread to arrive! Hope the bread survived the trip back home. Thanks Malin! (Check out her post here)
ps If you want to join the Bread Exchange Project check out the Facebook page to get updates on how to trade fo a yummy homemade bread
My weekend in Italy was just so relaxing and nice! I loved to see my best friend and her family and just to hang out with them and enjoying the Italian food! It was raining cats and dogs most of the time so unfortunately not so much nice photos. We went to this cute village on a hill named Cortona where the movie ‘Under the Tuscan sun’ was shot but this was more ‘Under the Tuscan rain’! Still we had a nice ‘aperitivo‘ and a traditional Tuscan dinner at ‘La Bucaccia’.
The ‘dolces’ market was delicious! A market full of Italian treats like all kinds of oil and vinegars, truffle, chestnut flour, Italian pastries, honey and chocolat. With the chestnut flour I am trading with Malin from the Bread Exchange Programme (see earlier post) this weekend. My love is in Berlin and he will trade a bread for a Made by lennebelle bracelet and the chestnut flour!
* Just arrived in Italy, Pisa and having a capucino in an Italian bar. These small moments make me happy!
I am off to Italy, Tuscany for a few days! How I have longed for this short trip to one of my best friends and get things of my mind. Will be back soon with a belly full of delicious food (The place I am going to, Arezzo, is having a ‘weekend of desserts’. On their main square all restaurants serve their best sweets, lucky me) and hopefully tons of nice photos!
Waterlilies are all around Asia! They take in a sacred place here! And I can’t blame them, they are so pretty!
And this week I am guestblogging at this amazing blog; ‘The Drifter & the Gypsy‘. Micaela asked me earlier this week. Because of backpacking and lack of proper internet access I had to improvise a little but just check it out! I feel real honored she asked me!
