Magnolia a la Riviera Maison photo frame

Today we have a Magnolia a la Riviera Maison photo frame.... I saw this idea in the new Magnolia Ink magazine and thought wait a minute Riviera Maison has a photo frame like that ! = )
I'm thinking of making the suitecase (see Magnolia Ink magazine) to hold the photoframe... but what do you think should I leave the Magnolia pictures like this or "color" them black & white !?!? 

The photo frame says "A Picture Paints A Thousand Words"

Talking about Riviera Maison.... I love these Caffé Doppio cup & saucers, perfect for a cuppucino with a homemade cupcake... hmmm another way to have a relaxing moment ! ; )

And like I promised.... the crochet Mary Jane shoes by Tab.... aren't they adorable ?? = )

It's raining outside.... & inside ; )

It's raining outside.... and inside, haha I'm having a lazy day and while I was giving my plants water I thought why not take a picture of my Orchid who just got a "shower".
So it's also "raining" inside over here, hihi ; )

By the way does anyone of you have tips for keeping Orchids....
I would love to hear them !! = )

Oh before I forget.... the crochet Mary Jane shoes made by Tab arrived yesterday and oh my God they are even cuter in real life then on the pictures Tab made !!
She send them in a little white box and even place washing instructions in it.... too adorable ; )
I will take a picture soon, but like I said I'm having a lazy day, haha =P

Maybe it's the rain ?? What do you do when you're having a lazy day and need to get moving ??
Tips anyone, hahaha.... ; )

Have a nive Pentecost (Pinksteren)

Today I want to wish everyone a happy Pentecost (Pinksteren)

I'm relaxing with a nice cup of homemade cappuccino ; )
I used the new "Friesche Vlag melkschuim" and it does work ! Although it works even better with a regular  coffee and less with the coffee pads because of the cream that's already in those types of coffee... but it still has a fluffy layer and more important.... it tastes good, haha ; )
Anyways.... a nice way to relax, I think is to....
 just make your favourite cup of coffee (or tea) put it in your favourite cup
(mine is by Riviera Maison... what else, haha)
sit down, put your feet up and ENJOY !! = )
Oh I had a piece of English fudge next to it, but that's already..... gone (blush) hahaha =P

You know it sounds so good... that I will have another one, hihi ; )
