A birthday weekend away to Gent!

 It was my birthday on the 14th of march and like every year I like to have a little weekend away trip to celebrate it :) This year we went to Gent in Belgium. We were really lucky to have such wonderful weather, it was bright and sunny and the city was just beautiful!

I definitely love discovering lovely little treasures in cities I have not been in before, and one absolute treasure was Julie's cafe where I had my birthday pie, créme bruleé  with red fruits :) 

This slice was just heavenly and the little pie shop was just filled with lovely yummies like lemon pies, cupcakes and a whole lot more.

look at all the yummy pies!
And all the yummy cupcakes!

Of course Rilakkuma demanded one too!

Of course we also did some shopping! The thing I really loved about Gent is that it has fun little quaint shops where they sells handmade treasures! 
I loved discovering shops like
Huis Zwaluw

packed full with lovely homes ware items

And the Fallen Angels

Stacked with vintage and retro goodies!!

Other shops I also recommend to visit; Zsa Zsa Rouge and petit Zsa Zsa for more retro vintage wears. Unfortunately I didn't take pictures at those stores but really you will marvel at what you see :)
And of course I couldn't resist buying a few treasures there :)

If you haven't visited Gent yet, I recommend that you do, it's definitely worth it!
It was a birthday weekend well spent :)


A sunny day off

Woodland necklaces, originally uploaded by Miss Thundercat.

Today was a really beautiful day and I decided to re-take some product pictures and this is the end result. I have this huge polkadot cup which I thought would make a good prop. Re-took pictures of the woodland necklaces (which are on sale now :) and the blue Alice earrings which I recently listed. 

I also made a lot of pictures of items I have yet to list! Slowly but surely they will be on my etsy! New necklaces, earrings and hand carved stamps are in the line to be listed! I just need to edit the 200+ pictures i took today, yeah it's a lot to shift through! But stay tuned for new goods and a possible giveaway for my birthday this month :)
