Oh Hello

My name is Yvonne Eijkenduijn. I live with my husband Boris (who I affectionately call Bo and is a portrait painter) our tabby cats, Moose (short for Pompelmoose) and Bon Bon in an old clock shaped farmhouse house from 1937 in Lommel, Belgium. 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 13 kittens, fell in love only three times and baked a lot of cakes.

I am a blogger, a photographer, a food columnist for SJIEK, and an author. I love cake and Christmas, both equally.

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

“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.” — Lori Pickert
