Last Week on Instagram

last week I had a lovely friend visiting from The Netherlands to keep me company for a week

we had so much fun together

it was a week to remember

we went to see the lake Ontario shore

and spent some lovely time crocheting together ~ more about that in another post

we drove to a forest for a hike along a little lake with the most pretty views

~ picture by my friend, no iPhone ~

after that we went for some thrift shopping

we also spent one day in the city of Toronto

it was quite warm that day, so we enjoyed cool water, delicious coffee and a smoothie

in one of my favorite coffee shops

that night we went to the baseball game Toronto Blue Jay's versus the LA Angels

for all tree of us it was the first baseball game we ever saw live ~ and we had so much fun !

great how they entertain the crowd for at least 3 hours

again, pictures by my friend ~ best view on the CN tower ever by the way

right after my friend left, the husband and I went camping

just a few more pictures of that lovely weekend

Canada Day, and delicious celebration cake

cooking outside on our camping table, practicing to roast the perfect marshmallows after dinner 

by far THE best thing about camping in Canada : a fire place/ BBQ on every campsite

lovely pillows in a local cottage country shop

and my attempt to take a picture of a chipmunk that approached us to get some food - 

the fearless animal jumped right on my knee and it surprised me so much I freaked out, haha!


again, we had a great time


  1. Hi Maaike, lovely to see your travels and lots of outdoor pictures! looks like you had a nice time. can't wait to see your new item in the shop! Heather

  2. Looks like a wonderful time!! Love your crocheted squares! Such inspirational photos! Have a beautiful day! xo Heather

  3. Ooh, I love roasted marshmallows too, even the burned ones. Looks like you had a great time. I don't mind camping, but only for a day or two. When I am separated from my bathroom I get a little sad!

  4. Wow, what a lovely week ...simple pleasures with precious friends ..that's what life's all about!

    Loving the instagram photos.
    Have a happy week.
