Sunday Goodies

thank you for all your sweet messages

for my birthday!

you are the best

this cake is for you

along with a creamy latte

from this beautiful new cup and matching spoon

next to the beautiful GreenGate bowl

I got from my brother and his girlfriend

so sweet, so pretty!

I can not stop looking at them

I would love to to have a cup of latte with you

and share some inspiration from these books on the right...

I tell you later about my library adventure!


enjoy your Sunday


  1. Hi Maaike,

    ik zie dat ik achter loop met het lezen van je blog!! Thanks for the lovely pictures you made from the reportage from our house. Ik wil je natuurlijk ook nog van harte feliciteren met je 30e verjaardag en ik weet zeker dat jij bent blij gemaakt met veel kantjes band etc. Je moeder had graag nog iets voor je meegenomen maar dit is nog niet binnen (helaas) maar wat in een goed vat zit..
    Ik wens jullie heeeel veeeel genieten met elkaar en vanuit Bovenkarspel en groet van Jayne

  2. A belated happy birthday to you!

    Love all your beautiful table wear. What lovely colours.

    And as for the pile of books...!

    I recently made sugar paste roses like the one on your cake, they were such fun to do.

    have a great Sunday, Helenxx
