Wereldmuseum in Rotterdam. Sinfonia Rotterdam played there with adios-nonino-for-Maxima-with-bandoneon Carel Kraayenhof. A lovely concert, also for kids, although they were the only ones present. Prior to the concert we had a delicious lunch at 'uit je eigen stad'. We can recommend both the Sinfonia orchestra (nice family concert in january) and the restaurant, when you plan a trip to Rotterdam. For us it was a great start of the holidays.

This was a welcome tutorial. I have a box full of straws that was waiting for a destination and on the almost-want-to-throw-away-list. With 25 straws in each star the box gets empty quickly. And the stars look great. Bigger than I thought they would be. If we hadn't had a handmade angel in the top of our Christmas tree, this star burst would make a nice topper.
recipe. I promised our daughters that we will have these for Christmas lunch too. You can vary easily with this recipe. We also tasted a pizza bread, parmesan and herbs, delicious.
upcycle angels. The girls invited some friends to come to our place to have a creative afternoon. Of course we'll try to create a warm cosy atmosphere inside with christmas music, decorations and snacks. Today I made these marshmallow snowmen in advance. Three white marshmallows on a stick, wrapped in plastic, faces with permanent markers and a felt scarf. Simple and cute.
This tutorial results in exactly the right size bag for a child. I just added piping around the flap, for extra detail and professional look. This week W will be taking the bag when she has to practise at the big school. We're wishing her a good time over there!
these felt hearts. Very simple. A new addition to our, already not so small, collection of tree decorations.
Rachel Khoo cookbook and all ingredients happened to be in the house, I had to try. And I must say, carrot-coconut cake is not bad at all. Very tasty actually. The neighbours, who got a piece because we can't eat every cake we bake completely, agreed and asked for the recipe. I thought to share it with you too. You can find it here (scroll down, it's the second recipe).
found many, but not the one I was looking for.
