Marjolein Thijse Photostudio

A few weeks ago I wrote that my photographer friend Marjolein helped me create a good set up for taking my product pictures. What I didn't mention, is that she has her own photostudio in Houten (Netherlands).

Marjolein Thijse Photostudio

Last week I visited her studio. I had never been in an actual photostudio before, so I was really impressed with everything. Look at all the huge lamps, and that enormous roll of background paper!

We also took some shots of some of my products. I love how they turned out. Very professional looking with the white backgrounds.

So, if you are in need of a photographer for some nice pictures of yourself, or your products, I definitely recommend Marjolein! You can visit her website marjoleinthijse.com for more information.

P.S. All the necklaces in this post are now available at Tizzalicious.com and the Tizzalicious etsy shop.

Spring!

Little Duckies

Aww, look! Baby duckies! Aren't they adorable? I spotted them in the water behind our house on Queensday. Mommy duck was busy keeping her 6 babies together!

What I was doing in the meantime? Relaxing after our long day at the flea market!

Queensday Flea Market Finds

April 30th is one of the best days to be a flea market loving Dutchie! On that day we celebrate Queensday. I don't know why, or how the tradition started, but on Queensday there are flea markets all over the country.

I visited one of the flea markets in my home town yesterday, with my mom. I found some really nice things this year!

Vintage Verkade Kwartet Spel

The first thing I bought was this vintage children's card game. It's called Kwartet in Dutch, it's like Go Fish. (Though I don't know if Go Fish is with playing cards only?) The box is a bit battered, but the cards are all in perfect condition. I only paid €0.50 for it!

Fujifilm Instax Mini 7 Camera

Then my find of the day, this Fujifilm Instax camera! Only €10! It came with some film too. I can't wait to use it! Last year I found an old polaroid camera, but I still haven't bought film for it, because I am not sure if it will work, and I didn't want to waste money on a camera that doesn't work. I should try that soon too though.

A Whole Lot Of Tins

And last but not least, lots of tins! I have a weakness for old tins, I just can't resist them! I think one of these is not actually vintage, but the other ones are. I love how they look all together.

To those of you from Holland: How was your Queensday? Did youi visit the flea markets? If yes, did you find anything nice?
