Thank goodness this week was not so hectic as my weeks can sometimes be! Ben is back on the mend (thanks from the both of us to you all who wished him well) and we decided to have an easy, laidback week; have long walks, make music, write poetry, go out to photograph, etcetera. Spring has officially arrived, even though on the first day of spring, it was pouring with rain in Zutphen. I was a bit dissapointed, but then, when I looked out of my windows, I realized that Zutphen is still very beautiful in the rain. I didn't had to go out anyway, so I grabbed a book, a big cup of tea and sat reading next to a warm burning fire in a comfortable chair.
Later that week the sun was shining, and we took this opportunity to have long strolls along Victorian mansions whilst dreaming of owning such a house ourselves someday. Though, we really can't complain with the house we have now: a 20th century mansion, hello!
Annnnd strike a pose! Ready to go out for the appointment I had that day! With a good hairday!
Wearing my favorite original 1940s shoes! These are so divine. It was a hell to break them in, but it was so worth it!
The cutest feet on earth, the fuzzy paws of my cat! I had to take a picture! What a dandy!
An inspiring picture of Lee Miller, taken by dadaïstic photographer Man Ray. Lee Miller was a surrealistic photographer and also Man Ray's mistress and model.
Another picture I loved to share! Yes, this is really a picture. It's taken by František Drtikol. At the end of his photographic career, he used to cut out tiny wooden figurines and take photos of it. This is one of them. Lovely, lovely, lovely!
Benjamin finally back on the mend after suffering bouts of fever. Aww, happy us <3 p="">3>
Figaro was as happy as I was with the sun!
I had an exceptional hairday!
My #WCW was Felicity Jones! She's so gorgeous, and I love her unique feature: her teeth.
I shared a throwback thursday photo of me from 2011. A selfportrait I made that was inspired by the stunning work of photographer Dora Kallmus. A year later I found my photo on several websites saying it was the original of Dora Kallmus. Although a really big compliment, it had to be rectified ofcourse. You can find the photo in its entirety here.
I love what tropical plants do to your ceiling. I love such shadows; it gives our house something mysterious in the evening.
I made this sumptuous raspberry brie dessert pizza, with candied almonds. I love fruit pizza's and this one is now one of my favorites. Click here for the recipe.
I love the silence Victorian graveyards have. I often come here to write some poetry, do some drawing and sketching, or write in my diary. It's a huge graveyard with some very, very important people of the Victorian times; barons and baronesses, I love it.
