Pots & Paper #3 - Amsterdam

This weekend we organized our third edition of Pots and Paper in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 
We occupied the second floor of the tiny little shop Hear Hear. 
Here are some pictures for those who couldn't make it.

Because the shop is in a busy alley, there were also tourists that bought a few items. They will travel with them back to their home country. It's nice to know that your handmade pieces will find a nice place all over the world. A big thanks to Rena for inviting us and participating by making beautiful ceramics. And also to ChrisSiglinde and Judith for making this edition what it was!  The pieces that weren't sold will be put on our online shop this week!

Portraits of our allotment gardeners

This year I want to introduce to you my fellow allotment gardeners. So on the right I added  a new page called 'Portraits Rodervelt'. There are five allotment areas in Berchem and Rodervelt is the name of our area. We have 27 gardens which means 27 interesting people. During spring I will post regularly short portraits of each gardener mentioning their expectations and plans for 2014. This summer I will visit them again  to see if they met their expectations and come back with a more elaborate interview and pictures. Today you can meet Frans and Mohammed. Have a look!

Pots & Paper #3

A new edition of Pots & Paper is born! We were invited by Rena, owner of the lovely shop Hear Hear in Amsterdam. We will take over the first floor of the store with the help of Siglinde, Hyshil, Judith, and Rena. I'm very exited about this edition: first time in the Netherlands and there are a few great products we made especially for this Pots & Paper. Everyone is more than welcome to come and be inspired!

Early this morning on the market, I bought 3 different kind of plant potatoes: Nicola, Spartaan and Rode Eersteling. There are so many different varieties ; it's very difficult to choose! Last year I planted Nicola's already and they were very tasty! But the 2 other kinds are an experiment. Now it has to stop raining and half March 
I can put them in the ground. And if it stops raining, I can plant these onions already this month: white and red onions and some French shallots.
