Today I went Sinterklaas shopping for the kids. Absolutely hate the frenzy going on on a Saturday in the citycentre, with Sinterklaas on its way....But I went with my dear friend Gwynne. Which made it all much much more fun. We kicked off with coffee. Had many shops to visit and lots of presents to buy. But...the coffee tasted good, the conversation was inspiring and fun AND Gwynne had to leave at 3.30 pm (we were still having coffee at 2.45 pm...).

So we prioritized and went on our way. Because we were in the Bijenkorf (THE department store in Holland) we went looking for presents there. But since Gwynne and I just love, absolutely LOVE, interior design and brands like HAY, Bloomingville and Ferm living, we just had to go and see the new interior design floor of this department store. They have just renovated and renewed the place and now sell these fantastic Scandinavian brands. We just had to go. It was by now 3.15 pm...still no presents. And there it happened. We both fell in love with this beautiful candleholder by Bloomingville. Don't you just love it?? Love the simplicity, love the geometrics, love the brass version and love the way it just plays with its own space it has been given in a room.
Christmas is on its way and I might just ask Santa for this wonderful piece of design!
(Somehow did manage to get all the presents!)
