Olive The Best

Happy holidays, all! We’ve certainly been absent of late, but in the meantime have been collecting lots of great material to share. Will do our best to use some of our much-needed time off constructively and post it! Cheers to you and thanks for following. xx


Give the gift of Tattly (in particular, the Real Deal *hint* *wink* *nudge*). Go, swissmiss!

Aires Libres

It’s Tulip Season

Ugly is subjective

Found a similar version at a market here in the ‘dam. Get ugly with your own Christmas sweater shirt. Seasons greetings, Dave!

‘Tis the season

For getting crafty.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
