Happy King’s Day!

2018 Kings Day Mangomini

Happy King’s day! Today we Dutchies celebrate our King’s birthday. That means: celebrating all day, preferably outside, and everything (including yourself) in orange!

For my non-Dutch followers, some of the typical Dutch foods in here are (from top to bottom):  tompoes (a very sweet pastry, with an orange layer especially for King’s Day), drop (salty liquorice), stroopwafel (waffle filled with caramel syrup) and hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles to eat on your bread, usually for breakfast).

The book is: The Cather in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Happy Plant Appreciation Day everyone! My home is slowly turning into that of a crazy plant lady and I like it.

My wish-list for spring.

My spring wishlist Cindy Mangomini

“You must always know what it is that you want.” Some wise words from The Alchemist. So here is my wish-list for spring 😉

(PS. the pizza tote bag is from Illustrated Identity on Etsy.)

Meet the Artist

Meet the artist - Cindy Mangomini low

This is my version of “Meet the Artist”. I don’t share a lot of personal stuff on social media, but this is a way to get to know a little bit more about me. As you can see I love tea (drink it all day, everyday), books, plants, thrift store shopping, making lists and plans, using my favourite art supplies, patchouli perfume and I drink rosé wine even in winter. I don’t like phone calls (I never answer because I panic!) and I hate it when I accidentally mistake my paint-water for my tea…..yuck!

Book: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
