I don’t know about you but I’m so looking forward to spring. It’s not like we’ve had a horrible winter as was the case in some other parts of the world. I’m just over this darkness and really excited to get started on a long list of diy and home improvements. It involves mainly paint jobs and the purging a lot of stuff. I always paint outside because our storage space aka the shed is full to the brim and not insulated making working there in winter a no no.
This spring there are 3 books coming out that I’m looking forward to reading.
Yvestown in de keuken (Yvestown in the kitchen). Published by Uitgeverij Snor.
A cookbook written by blogger, photographer and all round lovely lady Yvonne Eijkenduijn from Yvestown. It’s going to be 50 everyday recipes and photographs of beautiful kitchens spread over 272 pages of gorgeousness. Go here for more information on Yvestown in de keuken.
