I’m having a market-fever lately. It started with the Noordermarkt (the top 5 pictures) in the beautiful Jordaan. Continued with visiting for the first time in the hand made and craft market. Sunday Market Westergasfabriek, which is a true treat for any craft hand made lovers. This is where I got the tin bus station, the vintage noisemaker and the beautiful felt chair. Another visit was to the Puremarkt in Ouderkerk a/d Amstel (the red bus picture). So you see I keep myself busy….;-)

Have a happy sweet weekend!

“Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need – a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing”.  Jerome K. Jerom “Three Men in a Boat (to Say Nothing of the Dog)”

Would it be just perfect to celebrate the first week of summer sailing in our best summer sailing outfits while reading this fabulous book…? Yes of course it would be a nice, only bit more summer weather around here please!
