long weekend.

it was a long weekend in these parts. and a weekend that i didn’t take too many pictures. but there was a lot of picnic-ing and dog walking and general relaxing. ate some interesting meats like ostrich (amazing!) and lamb. and drank some pear genever and pink wine.

here are a few things i did take pictures of.

we rode the giant ferris wheel in dam square. and while i was absolutely terrified (afraid of heights aparently?) it made for some goooood picture takin’.

it’s baby bird season! i spent to much time squeaking at the tiny duck and feeding them spice cake.

we found the most generic beer in existence.

fred and i took some old man and old lady style tips and now we have sunglass chains and clip on flip ups.

the battleship potemkin was happy.

i made this. more on this later. ( it’s an old dutch thing / game )

and i replanted my succulent babies. note the re-purposed generic beer can. stay classy.

little things.

window garden

my parents gave us a apartment warming gift of little baby succulents. cacti being one of the few plants i don’t kill, i’m very excited. this now brings the window garden to 5 succulents, strawberry seedlings, an avocado seed and mint. but the mint is half dead. all gaurded by the garden keeper moonman.

metal heart

i got a letter from melissa with this little metal heart she made inside of it. i sewed it to the psycho killer angel puppets wing for safe keeping.

a western bar

my parents also brought some bar paraphernalia that i either left in america or can’t get here. most notably multiple bourbons.  having a well stocked bar is a very important thing.we made some mint juleps with the aforementioned dying mint. and of course. old fashioneds!!

go games

fred bought the game ‘go’. which we attempted to figure out how to play on our own since it did not come with directions. i’m sure we’ll get it one day.

haberdashery uniforms

in love with this hat. and striped shirts. here is my spring uniform.
