sunny day in antwerp

This collage pretty much sums up my yesterday. The kids and I spent the day in Antwerp's city centre in wonderful weather. They got ice cream and I got my latte at café Mockamore (the photo of the cups is taken in there). It's located on Groenplaats square, where they're always selling flowers and you have a view of the Cathedral of Our Lady. We walked through many of the narrow streets, which I love, and on one called Groendalstraat is one of my favourite shops, Oil &Vinegar. I had to take a photo of the bowls through the window; they've been on my wish list for a long time. Close by is the iittala shop on Korte Gasthuisstraat street. Their window display was beautiful (centre-right with the Alvar Aalto vases
and tomato and blue shaded boxes). I visited Dille & Kamille on Vleminckstraat street, another of my favourites, where I bought a beautiful latte bowl before we called it a day.
