Finally I managed to find a Boskke Sky Planter. I wanted one for a long time for our living room. There is a tiny shop in the heart of Amsterdam which called Hear Hear which sells them.
I keep you posted how I get on with my Sky Planter (great the name).
We also made some hanging basket for the Garden Which was fun, but they really need some sun and warmth. I'll show you some pictures when they are a bit more established.
Enjoy a nice long weekend,
PS: Sarah Moore's new book looks amazing.

From now on the Beachside Brocante in Deal on the first Bank holiday in May is my favorite vintage hunting ground. There where so many interesting stalls. One of my best buys that day was a green Fiesta jug.
Make sure you put that date in your calender for next year.
PS: I'm crazy about The Passenger.

Not sure why but wooden spoons make my heart beat faster. I just love them. Jill Swan& Louis Ellis had a wonderful show at the Horsebridge. Jill is also giving workshop spoon carving, guess Mister Kay would enjoy that very much.
I was lucky to take one spoon home ,they were selling so fast.
PS: Jill Greenberg's work is amazing

Marti had her wonderful pop-up store at the Show Off Gallery in Whitstable last week. I must say her little shop looked amazing. I fell a bit in love with the blue dress, very much Laura Ashley Style.
She will be back in October with some other friends of mine, so if you are around make sure you pay her a visit to have a look for yourself.
PS: Lounge on the farm, on my summer list.

We had two fantastic weeks. I think this was our best holiday in a long time. We enjoyed lots of simple pleasures:
- daily long family beach walks
- lots of tea
- going plant hunting (driving home with a car full of plants & vintage)
- visiting the vintage fair at the beach in Deal (the location was amazing)
- meeting friends
- enjoying the sun (finally I could wear my floppy summer hats)
Lot's more soon. Now it's time to unpack the suitcases and do some washing.
Kay and family
PS: Our music in the car the last couple of days the new CD from Caro Emerald.
