My name is Yvonne Eijkenduijn. I live with Boris (who I affectionately call Bo) our cat, Boo Boo (sounds in Dutch like oe oe not oo oo, Yogi Bear's buddy) and 3 buff hens, in an old gentleman's house from 1896 in Lommel, Belgium very close to the Dutch border. I'm currently busy to change the house to an old ladies home replacing a lot of brown with pink and white, my two favourite colours. I was born and raised in The Netherlands but since my late teens I've lived in America, England, Suriname and now in Belgium. I've decorated quite a few homes, raised 12 kittens, fell in love only three times and baked a lot of cakes.

I am a blogger, a photographer and an author. I love cake and Christmas, equally.

I try to live each day like freshly shaven legs under clean sheets.

The Blog

You may wonder where all the contents of my blog has gone to. After 7 years of blogging, moving home and several blog makeovers I started to loose interest. On the first of January 2012 I started all over, I need a blank canvas to work on.

The nicest thing ever said about me ...

Yvonne injects color and vivacity into every single thing in her life. Her exuberance and love of home bursts through everything she touches like pure sunshine.
