I don't have to tell that Bruges is one of the nicest city's in Belgium. The whole town seems old and patinated. Well it's almost true. Off course some places are nicer than others. Maison le dragon is one of the nicer. If not the nicest. If you plan to stay in Bruges, go there you will never forget it.

Tomorrow I am back to the office. So this evening I am looking back on some days of hard work. Our bed and breakfast is going very well. The cleaning lady left us for two months because she's building her house in Poland :-s, so that's a less good part. Meaning that my boyfriend and me have to clean the whole house.
It was a heavy week, but I am glad with did everything.
I even had time to do some shopping. I bought a wonderful cristal chandelier for in the guest bedroom. Isn't it charming, the best thing is that it comes from a big house not far from our house.
Here are some pictures of the the two chandeliers I hung in the bedrooms, and some random pictures from the house.
Hope you will enjoy!!!

So for once I am on holiday at home. There is always something to do here. Today I prepared my apartment because somebody is renting it for a couple of days. And like I am a perfectionist, I went to double check everything. So now I can relax, everything is all right. So what better proof of that than pictures in our bed. This morning we used new bedlinen. So this evening we will sleep in wonderful toile de joy.
This week of course I did some shopping. Yes don't look like that! A week without looking for something gorgeous is a lost week.
I added two old Medici urns to our collection. They are on the marble chimney on one of the guest rooms. They remind of the two urns i saw on a chest on Room Seventeen a very nice blog I follow.

Well it was a dream of me to have a B&B one day. And finally I have one. My boyfriend and me are running one at our place. We love to share our lifestyle and our taste for the ancient.
And what better way to feel that than to stay over.
It's called Van Eyck, simply because we live in the Van Eyck street in Brussels and we love the painter :-)
Here are some pictures of the rooms. The green room is at the front of the house and the other at the garden side. That last one has to have a make over. But because we're so busy, we wnat to enjoy a bit of the summer and slow down a bit. So we will have more energy to make miracles again.
