Keet in Huis
We spent the last two weeks in Holland and Switzerland and I am happy to report that I have some really fun things to share. One day last week, Jaime, my sweet husband, and I met up with my cousin Justina and her partner Jack (who live in Amsterdam) while we left the girls behind in Alkmaar with Oma and Opa (my parents, that is). We jumped on our bikes and made our way to some "out of the way" places, meaning we left our favorite area in the Jordaan and headed to the outskirts and the harbor. The next couple of blog entries will be about some of the places we ventured. One of our first stops was KNSM island to check out in particular a store I have never been to called Pol’s Potten. On our way we popped into a fantastic kid’s store that really inspired me and I was delighted to be able to see some new and creative home products for children. The store is called Keet in Huis, which means "goofing around in the house." The designs were all quintessentially Dutch, which seemed to have an old fashioned or vintage feel to them. I liked so many!

How great do all these colors look on a black wall? Note to self, the next baby room I do, consider black walls; vintage stool painted and reupholstered
What is it about these garden animals that gives me butterflies in my stomach; super cute wallstickers
