Swanmarket x-mas edition & DISCOUNT CODE for the online shop!

By | Lennebelle jewelry, treats & treasures | No Comments

Depending on the weather and how I feel (been sick for a few days) I will be at Swanmarket next sunday! Last year was the first edition of Swanmarket and it was all so cosy, with bonfires on the street, hot chocolate and ‘poffertjes’ stands and this time it will be even bigger. So don’t go to the too crowded city but go to Swanmarket  X-Mas edition to get your original, unique and/or handmade gift. I will have loads of the ‘wish upon a star’ bracelets (not only nice as a gift for x-mas but also for new-year) and much more! I will be next to Irma with her beautifull leather shoppers and clutches!

And to treat all my loyal followers on A little hamster I will give you 20% discount with each order!

Kinfolk, to enjoy small gatherings

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Recently I discovered Kinfolk! I just love their idea and concept. Two words; Friends & Food. What else can you wish for. Small gatherings is what it’s all about. Get your friends together and enjoy eachothers company and simple good food. Check out the video about what they do here. Kinfolk also publishes the Kinfolk Magazine filled with great photos, recipies and stories about small gatherings. Plus they make very enticing videos! You want to invite everybody for an early breakfast on the beach or a bbq in the woods,… at least I do!

And also found out about Outstanding in the field. Long tables everywhere in the US to serve dinners that re-connect with the origins of the food and their local farmers. I love these kind of initiatives!

Winter cold

This would be the perfect winter cardigan! I have already lots of them to snuggle up in when I am cold but this one is also amazingly pretty and well made, you can tell.

It’s from a German brand Pugnat. Unfortunately no shops nearby and I will need more ‘sunny clothes’ since we are flying to Argentina on the 30st! Counting the days now.

Something to celebrate!

Tomorrow we will go to Amsterdam for a daytrip. Geared with warm mittons and scarf we will hop from coffee place to Restored to say Hi to lunchspot to appointment at LouLou to winebar to Le Petit Latin what is said like having dinner in a small French village. Can’t wait! We are celebrating our 3,5 years anniversary!

It’s fun having a belated birthday present! Yesterday I received this gift from my love in the mailbox. This beautifull brass arrow bracelet by Odette NY.  Together with my fox claw earrings they make a perfect pair!

Odette NY is a Brooklyn based jewelry label by Jennifer Sarkilathi. I adore her collection.The pieces are inspired by organic and industrial shapes, natural specimens, uncommon artifacts, and primitive forms. All handmade. You can see more of her pretty collection here.

The watch was a present from my sister for my 30st birthday and the bracelet is a ‘golden’ sample for the new collection from Lennebelle.

Again one that’s been on my wishlist for ages! The bags by Rubber Soul from Dutch bag & accesory designer Myrte Memelink!

I clearly remember the first time I saw her bags at Fleur, a shop in Rotterdam some years ago and now finaly, because of the exchange project, I am the proud owner of this cute suede Rubber Soul original! This one is called Lena. I love it and can’t take my eyes off it!

They come in all different sizes and colours. Check them all out here!

It’s december and I am ready for some snow and wintercold! I am looking forward to the Holiday Seasons and already had some nice and cosy Sinterklaaas celebrations with friends and family! I feel really spoild lately with all those gifts.

Stock up on ‘wish upon a star’ bracelets for your loved ones to wish them a happy new 2012 where all their wishes may come true. The lock and star are sterling silver and you can choose the color yourself or mix three color for one braid! Check them out here. The first 10 people who order a necklace will get a wish upon a star bracelet as a gift!

This month I will be at two fairs;
