Color keeping me company. The last leg of winter, I can’t tell you how much I look forward to spring. Flowers for comfort and warmth always. Arrangement of fresh flowers with sugar flowers. A sustainable combination of choice with reduced winter blooms. I took some time in January because of lots of work behind the scenes (previous post and can’t wait to share more in the coming weeks) but when ready to post, next thing I know IG has changed uploading from message(photo) to reel first. I was wondering: Is photography still compelling or are videos the better choice? Please let me know, I would love to hear your views.
January behind us, only 45 days till spring.
Have a lovely Sunday and lovely new week everyone.

I can hear the black birds sing again when I wake up in the morning. This long awaited sound always a prelude to much awaited spring. I don’t know about you but I’m okay with January now behind us. The darkness of winter sometimes feels heavy to me but with more minutes of light each day, it feels lighter with the weight lifted.
Sugar orange. These sweet produce part of a larger, big project. Did you know that oranges found their way through the Middle East to Europe from the 15th century but that they were cultivated in China for hundreds of years before? A fruit we take for granted but one time a ship with crates of oranges embarked the harbor of Antwerp. The color of this, at the time unknown, fruit considered too bright, they didn’t want to unload the cargo as they were thought to be poisonous. Oranges became commonly known in the 17th century with the affluent, including Dutch Royalty, cultivating oranges to showcase their wealth. Oranges are called ‘sinaasappel’ in Dutch. ‘Sina’ derived from the old name for China.
It always takes time to enjoy the fruits after we planted the seeds but that doesn’t mean life can’t be sweet in the meantime. More sugar in my instastories. Have a lovely Sunday and fruitful new week everyone.

A new day, a new week, a new month, a new year. Happy New Year my dear friends. This year has been like no other for me but if there was a time where you have showed up for me and said, I got your back, it was this past year. I can still remember the exact same time, New Year’s Eve, a year ago. How nervous and excited I was about what was scheduled ahead and in particular the book. We never know what the future holds and how things will play out. There were times I could barely control myself because of the impatience but I know now there is joy in not knowing.
Please know your words matter. You may not know this but when I’m anxious and doubt creeps in, I (re-)read the generous thoughts you share here and have shared with the reviews, and throughout the year they have been so helpful. This platform may have changed and sometimes the changes here may not be what we had in mind but what remained is all your kindness. I owe a lot to IG but IG means you.
From the depths of my heart, thank you for your support and your generosity always. If only you knew how much your connection is appreciated. Sending love, health and peace. Wishing you a happy 2024.

Deeply honored for my sugar tulips to be on the cover of the January issue of The World of Interiors Magazine. Exquisitely photographed by the brilliant @minh_ngoc
Thank you @hamishbowles and @taniacompton @amy_sherlock @emily.k.tobin @ivanshaw
Everything about this cover is love and dedication. There are simply not enough words to express the deep gratitude I have for all the love I have received. The @theworldofinteriors the absolute best team. On newsstands now. This moment, including the ones leading up to this moment will forever hold a special place in my heart. Everything about this feels surreal, someone please pinch and tell me I’m not dreaming.

Happy Sunday with fresh and sugar flowers. Thank you for your kind words at my previous post and reel. Soon these fresh lilacs will fade but sugar lilacs are now added to the sweet garden forever. Like meditation, the repetition of creating sweet blooms calms my mind one petal, one floret at a time. For many, myself included, December is always one of the busiest months. But I always remind myself, even if I don’t complete “the list”, you know the one we tell and recount to ourselves so everything will run smooth and most of all perfect, I, we will be okay.
Have a lovely Sunday and great new week everyone.

Creating sugar lilacs to last forever before the fresh ones wilt. Equipment, sugar paste en resources in my book, A Sweet Floral Life, link in my bio. Only a few tools needed to create these everlasting sugar flowers.
With so much happening in the world, these dozens of blooms, to calm my worrying mind one floret at a time.

The final day of our autumn break and the end of daylight savings time. The extra hour a consolation prize while we are gearing up for darker days. The brightest roses in our home with the most heavenly scent. How I wish I could offer more. I must have said it a millions times but now feels more vital than any other, take good care of you. Have a lovely Sunday and good new week everyone. Sending roses for love.

Reading from my book ‘A Sweet Floral Life’. It has been 6 months this week since its release into the world. No better way to celebrate than to visit the @mauritshuis_museum and admire one of the largest collections of floral still life paintings by Ruysch, Davidsz de Heem, Coorte and van der Ast among others. I devoted a chapter to Rachel Ruysch who influenced my work and addressed the importance of her father. What I hoped more than anything for this book is for the flowers and stories to come to life. So many of us are inspired by the brilliance of the artists from the so called Golden Age. It was important to me to share the Dutch history. The beauty and the bad. I hope you enjoyed reading the stories as much as loved I loved sharing them. More in my instastories.
