It feels good to be back again. A short break really works wonders! I have done some reading, made an apron out of vintage fabric and worked in our garden. It gives so much energy! Last weekend my husband, eldest daughter and I went to the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, to see an exhibition of haute couture, called 'Voici Paris'.
The exhibition takes you through the history of 'Haute Couture' and features top examples of 20th century fashion design. The earliest exhibit dates from 1901. There are beautiful dresses on display by Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Gaultier and also from more contemporary fashion designers like Alexander van Slobbe and Dries van Noten. Not only the clothes were very worthwhile, the setting was beautiful too. The dress with the bright pink coat (photo 14) was worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Ohhhh if only I could wear one of these dresses........
Now the pillow comes in.........yesterday I received the giveaway I won at Sisterly. With a picture I sent Hannie of my parents in their younger days, she made a beautiful pillow! My mum and dad, who were spending the day with us, unwrapped the parcel. They were so happy with it! Dear Hannie thank you so much again!!! I wish you could have seen their faces! What a great giveaway to win :-)! Hannie has a webshop where she sells pillows, brocante and all kind of wonderful things. Please have a look at her blog.
A happy and sunny weekend to you all! We are off to Antwerp tomorrow and next week to Maastricht with my mum. Bye for now!
