Changes are a big part of life. So after a long time thinking about it, I have finally changed the blog theme. This is the first time a big change like this happens here since I created the blog in 2011. I’ve decided that the blog needed a lighter and less busy background to show off the pictures and to get more practical to navigate. I added a picture with the D’arc Creations logo as a header and I’m sure I will be making some small changes to adjust things for a while, so apologies!
I’m loving the new look and I hope you are too!

On my task to visit more places in The Netherlands and renew our energies after the long and dark winter that we had here in the land of the wind mills. My boyfriend and I went on a two days trip to the provinces of South-Holland and Zeeland. We left the house very early on Sunday heading to Kinderdijk.
19 windmills of Kinderdijk were built around 1740 to pump the excess water.
The sun was still very shy on that morning.
After visiting Kinderdijk we headed to the coast. Oostvoorne was our destination. We checked-in in the hotel and then we went for a walk at the beach.
The sun finally showed up, providing us a great bright and warm afternoon.
And it is very important that you don’t forget to drink during the day…
… And eat.
And after that we still had time to see the sunset at the beach.
Back at the hotel we had a very nice dinner. Steak for me and Saté chicken for him served in an interesting dish. With a lot of frites of course.
To close the day we had a relaxing time in the hotel lounge accompanied by some drinks.
On the second day, after breakfast and checking out, we slowly began to make the way back home, trough Zeeland. And there we took a look at the Delta Works that we passed along the way.
And for the last but not least we mad a stop at a small village called Veere. On the picture you can see the village’s lift bridge.
Can’t get tired of the windmills in The Netherlands.
By the end of the afternoon we were back at home. I had a great time in those two days. Now gotta think on where we are going next.
My love for bracelets it’s no news. I wear one ( or more than one) everyday. And they also are the most jewelry pieces I make.
Today I’m posting here all the items I’ve listed this week on Etsy, and surprisingly they are all bracelets.
This one I am reposting as I updated the pictures in the shop.
Stop by my Etsy Shop to take a look on these items.
Today is officially the first day of Spring. And when I hear Spring, I think of sunny days, warmth and birds singing… At least that’s how it is by this time in Portugal (where I lived for almost 12 years). I don’t think I will ever get used to this unstable Dutch weather… Anyways… It has arrived…
The news are announcing it, the radios keep saying every once and a while het is lente (it is spring) and playing warm collorful songs and people keep welcoming the most colorful season of the year on the social networks. But… While I look outside of my window I really can’t see it. This week started rather sunny and a little bit warm (giving all of us some Spring feeling), but today in area that I live in the Netherlands, the day started quite white and cold. On the pictures you can see how it looks right now outside. Where is Spring?
So… Welcome Spring, I hope you will not forget to present us here in The Netherlands with the warmth and colors that characterizes you.
