My Dad


Dear readers .... I received some very bad news a few days ago. My dad died in a car accident on his way to his house in Spain. I am devastated by the news and will leave for the Netherlands with my two boys and my husband this evening. In my absence a group of truly wonderful blog friends have volunteered to write guest posts on Bloesem Living and BKids. I am very touched by their support for me and my blogs. Sufiya, who most of you know by now, will be responding to emails until my return.  While I am unable to focus on my blogs right now, my dad would have been proud that I am not completely abandoning my readers and sponsors. He was my example when it comes to work, my friend and mentor ... and very proud of the Bloesem blogs. So in honor of him, although you won’t be hearing from me in the next two weeks, Bloesem blogs would like to continue spreading beauty to the world .... I leave you in the very capable hands of my blog friends and Sufiya who I am sure will treat you to some amazing new finds! A happy picture of our last family vacation in Spain last July. 

My best, Irene ... and PLEASE promise me don't forget to enjoy LIFE!

On Pinterest: 'Christmas-Classic' by Pejper


{1. Christmas Calendar DIY  2. Christmas dresser  3. Poster  4. Peppermint Candy  5. Wreath Holiday Cards }

Pinterest is just overflowing with amazing Christmas pictures and ideas, I don't even know where to start. This particular board created by Pejpar stood out to me because each picture compliments the next. These would all look great in a house. Great board for a simple yet very classy Christmas.

Sponsor spotlight: Lili's

{1. Lampion Poetic Bakker 2. set of 3 baskets 3. Coasters Eames  4. bamboo bowl 5. Guirlande lumineuse}

Have you shopped at Lili's before? Lili's online shop would be a great stop especially since the Holiday Season is coming up. Either you are shopping for youself or for a gift, Lili's sure has lots to choose from.These are some of the products I think would be the perfect addition to your home.

We've talked about some of Lili's light collection here on Bloesem but this time I would like to show you how lovely their lantern collection is. My favorite is the Lampion Poetic Bakker out of the page full of colors and prints.

Irene had mentioned before that Lili's adds a touch of retro to a room. I totally agree with her. What do you think? From the kitchen to the children room Lili's provide great design inspiration. And dont worry I'm sure these products would match with what you already have at home. ~ Sufiya

Visje Bij De Thee


Everything you see in these pictures is for sale at a lovely new online shop called Visje bij de Thee = 'little fish with tea' ... a perculiar name I know but in dutch it sounds quite nice :)

Stylist Iris Rietbergen who founded Visje bij de Thee created a sweet and romantic world. I have fallen in love with the beautiful bird wallpaper. And I like how Iris dared to combine thsi already very busy patteren with more patterns from skinnylaminx ... great idea and makes me want to try doing this at home too.... no need to always keep it plain and simple .. do you like combining colors and patterns like this?     [READ AND SEE MORE]
