Happy Michaelmas


The sky can show you many things. Sadly I'm not really familiar with reading such signs. But I do recognize natural beauty when I see it with my own eyes. These stunning colors surrounded our cottage and I wondered if it was a sign, telling me that Michaelmas would become pretty special this year...

Homemade Bread & Other Trials




Life can be sweet despite the hectic, frightening and unplanned events that throw you off course. Sweet like a slice of homemade raisin bread :)

Cats in Bath



Pale Rose Cottage is blessed with two cats. Charlotte and Chloƫ bring so much joy to our lives. I read somewhere the saying that: Cats leave Footprints on your heart. That's definitely true for me, but they leave something else too...

Garden Harvest & Homemade Butter



We've had rain and we have had shine, all those combined created, what I suspect to be, the perfect growing conditions for all things green. Weeds proved their desire to grow in Pale Roses garden, but thankfully so did many more plants and some vegetables too...

Demeter & Joy


Whenever a season changes or the weather turns. When flowers bloom or are replaced by falling leaves. We cannot help ourselves and feel the itch to recreate nature on our nature table. The garden of our cottage is lovely, but sitting at the dining table or on the sofa, the windows only display a few trees. They are gorgeous and invite you to look outside, still. Having a miniature landscape with dolls and animals adds to the coziness that is our home...

Making a Floral Mess




Flowers are gorgeous, don't you think?! They come in every color of the Rainbow, in every shape or form & at any time of the year it seems. The ones in our cottage garden got good looks and they usually scent wonderfully. What a shame that they wilt so quickly and disappear long before I'm ready to let them out of my sight. Before I tire of looking at them...

Catching Butterflies & Seeking Dragons


There's been a couple of hot days here in the South of Holland. In fact on the one day we noticed/ experienced more than 30 degrees Celsius!

As we were driving back to Pale Rose from the village farm shop we positively melted. So immediately all of us had a glass of cold water to feel like ourselves again ;) With this much sunshine we could not remain indoors however. I spend some time in our beautiful back garden, catching Butterflies....

Challah & Covering up


My mom has always found it important to make food from scratch. I can remember her making fantastic stuff from as early an age as four, or maybe five years old. Like her birthday cakes, her Three kings bread and her massive piles of pancakes. As a child I found the celebration food she prepared the best & I guess I remember that the most as it was special to me. But she cooked great meals everyday and often baked fantastic breads aswell...

Flowers and Fritter Fun


Tea is not just a drink, tea is a moment. Sitting down and relaxing, looking forward to that enjoyable first sip. Followed by so many other sips of deliciousness. It's a moment, our moment to catch up and share. To just be, mom and me...
