Posted in amsterdam, etsy favourites, music August 26th, 2009 by pia

1. I’m loving this version of ‘going up the country‘ (originally by the ’70’s blues band Canned Heat) by Kitty, Daisy and Lewis – 3 young siblings from England. It totally gets me jivin’, check it out…


2. This sweet little vintage tin from etsy shop monkeys always look



3. And you. You inspire me, but not just this week, all the time.


It is a beautiful day here in Amsterdam. The air is lovely, I went for a nice ride this morning and I feel so much more rejevunated than I did yesterday. So much so, that in between my work I have decided to blog my little heart out today, as there is much I want to share with you. So! today there will be a few posts coming your way, thanks in advance for stoppin’ by to say hi.


PS Last weekend I went on a fabulous boat ride around Amsterdam with some friends! My dear (blog)house guest was one of those friends. Zoë took loads of great pics and wrote a wonderful post about it this week, it’s in the guest quarters right now, please click here to read Zoë’s post. (yes that is me in the cowboy hat. I love that hat!)

    What can I add, but that those kids’ 50’s rock spin on Going Up the Country is a feel-good experience if ever! Love the raw sound and the clip is SOOOO refreshing! Thank you, Pia, for all you bring to our attention…and to our five senses!
