and so this was xmas...

my stomach isn't angry about the fact that xmas is over now. we ate and drank too much. but it wouldn't have been xmas if we had not done that!
although jules doesn't really 'get' the santa idea, he does love opening gifts now. last year i had to open all his gifts as he wasn't really interested in them. but jules is my kid after all and this year he was even willing to help open the gifts for the others. he did ran away a few times with his nieces gifts, but he is the youngest so he got away with that. sneaky little munchkin.
the only thing we do not agree on is getting clothes as a gift. when he felt the gift was soft he couldn't bother to open it. who wants clothes from santa? not jules, that's for sure... luckily there were enough toygifts for the little man.

vitra sale excitement.

vitra sale (everything -50% off)

this is how it went...
6.30 AM: alarmclock. i must be crazy to go stand in line for 2hours in the cold. but i got up, got dressed and off i went( i did have a short but brief discussion with myself about the going or not going).
i arrived at 7.10 am. i knew that i wasn't going to be the only crazy person. this picture shows that i was right. 

8am: i started talking with the people before and after me in the waiting line. standing there alone at that time of day: ok, but for me to not speak to anyone for two hours : not a chance. we were talking about which item we came for and the shared passion for design. kindred spirits to say the least (i was especially relieved that none of them were after the same as me- enlarged my chances of really getting it).
time flew by... and... then... it was 8.55am.
i could hear everyone breath a little louder and faster. getting ready to run through the door in about 5 minutes and get what they came for. 
i was (honestly) thinking to myself: i will NOT run. come on, lets keep this real, uh? but when i came to the door, i saw the Eames storage unit and a man standing next to it and well, yeah.. i am a bit ashamed about it but.. i ran! oh my... did i ran. i saw it, i ran to it and i threw myself on it! this was going to be MINE! woot woot! 
i am honered to share with all of you that i got it! i am looking at it as we speak. it is standing in MY livingroom. in MY livingroom. 
this might sound a bit shallow, but i really can't seem to care. we are happy with it. it made my weekend. no, it made my year (as it is almost over anyway). 
we rearranged some stuff around in the house and found her (the unit) a great spot. i think she is happy to be here with us. 
et voilĂ , here she is:

the only thing that wasn't so fun about our weekend: jules who got sick. that poor little boy.
but he is getting better every hour.

hope your weekend was a good one!

happy weekend!

enjoy your weekend! we are looking forward to ours!
this evening i'm staying in, sorting some stuff out around the house.
tomorrow i will be up at 6 to go stand in line at the VITRA stocksale. our dreamcabinet is on sale (-50%).. let's hope we are lucky to bring that beauty home with us!

Snowflakes mobile ~ DIY

i got inspired by reading all these christmas diy posts in blogland. i gave these snowflakes -made out of paper- a personal touch and made a mobile of them! it was easy.. i attached them on my lights above the dining table in the livingroom..
i found a tutorialpicture on pinterest and used this to make the snowflakes.

homemade ladieslunch

today was a good day. we had lunch at miss J's place and we all had to bring something homemade. i made a quiche with fennel, oregano, bacon, goat cheese and cherrytomatoes. the other ones brought scones, soup, ... i ate too much and haven't had dinner because of it :)
not only did we eat, we exchanged birthdaypresents (although our birthdays were a few months ago). i got this great cookbook which i am really excited about. new ideas.. always a winner. 
miss L was happy with the babyblanket i made her, and miss B with her bedsidetablelamp. 
this was a good start of the week, if only this cold would go away. i've been stuck with it for 3 weeks now, i had it about now to be quite frank. 
enjoy your week, you all.
