tipatkins I always look up. I'm obsessed with the sky - it reminds me of when I was little and would spend hours floating in the pool watching the clouds float by. Good times. Happy weekend lovelies! #aminimalminute #sunset 8h

tipatkins Added little fringes to my shoes so they appear a little less shiny but not sure about the colour - maybe I should've gone with black. 🤔 Fashionistas - any advice? 1d

tipatkins This space would definitely be more stylish with an Oree Artisans wooden keyboard! #styleatmine 2d

tipatkins Brunching in the sun on my own. When I have time on my hands, apparently I like to cook - go figure. A little spinach & artichoke dip I prepared earlier with some rosemary & sea salt crackers (& some random crumbs on the side). #tipcooks 5d

tipatkins UPDATE: These are leaving in the AM!

As much as I love to sit on these they're in need of some TLC so I've decided to give them away to someone that wants to give them a new life/upholstery. Pick up from Utrecht. #clearingmytodolist #artifort #theoruth #dutchdesign #herenmodel #damesmodel #midcenturymodern

  •   cyndiespiegel I did a clean up yesterday too. These chairs would be stunning with a big of violet and hot pink upholstery. Hand carry to NYC? 5d
  •   tipatkins Hahahah ... If only ... @cyndiespiegel 5d
  •   genwindley Pity I'm on the other side of the world!!! 5d
  •   tipatkins Yes, a few people have said that! @genwindley 4d

tipatkins Amen to that. Is it nap time yet? I've been into my naps/rest ever since I discovered SARK a couple of decades ago!

tipatkins Sunny #selfie because I'm having such a good day to myself, doing whatever I want guilt-free ... Even the sun is getting in on the act and shining straight at me. It's been a very long time since I've managed to have fun without feeling like I should be doing something else & while I still feel weird about it, I'm making good progress! #loveistheword #selflove #selfcare 1w

tipatkins Heading out for #gluren bij de buren in the neighbourhood soon - it's a free music festival taking place in 185 living rooms in Utrecht this afternoon.

Anyone else doing the same (in Wittevrouwen)?

  •   tipatkins Yes it was! @elvanht Took the 3 girls & Ally - they seemed to enjoy the adventure, as did we. Next year! 2w

Clarendon Tip Atkins (Tip Moore)
tipatkins Randomly made #fishcakes for #lunch as we had mountains of leftover mashed potato in the fridge & it's raining elephant-sized cats 'n dogs so I'm not doing the groceries just yet.

Recipe (Tip's chuck it all in style): Mashed potato + sardines + egg + seasoning & spices to taste (I used tumeric & coriander because they are power herbs ). Mix it up until it sticks together but isn't too mushy (technical term), fashion into flat patties then fry with a wee bit of oil (I used coconut oil but any is fine - just avoid those nasty ones!). Serve however you want - I had these wilting greens & sriracha in the fridge...sweet chili sauce is good too. (Sriracha is in a squeeze bottle though so I could make it IG prrrtttyyyy ) Enjoy!

  •   tipatkins This is why I've started putting some of my random cooking on IG - I actually remade my lentil dish the other day by looking it up here. @elvanht 2w
  •   elvanht Smart! That's why i want to (still) start this foodblog, to keep my recipes. Will have you as a guestblogger once it's ready 2w
  •   tipatkins Just start. Do it for yourself. Or even a recipe space your kids can look at. You can always tweak it later. Happy to be a guest eater! @elvanht 2w
  •   elvanht That is the whole idea behind it, keeping the recipes for the kids. I don't have to make a business out of it, but I want it to look pretty . I have a foodstyling and photography workshop planned in april with @foodbandits and @fraeuleinsonntag . Looking really forward to it. 2w
  •   tipatkins But you can still start now and replace the photos later. Just start! @elvanht 2w
  •   elvanht Gotta have to figure out how to do that. I ama a digibeet (what's the English word for that) 2w
  •   tipatkins Hahahaha - happy to help with that! @elvanht 2w
  •   elvanht I will hold you to that! Awesome 2w

tipatkins Loving these rock plants (I think - I thought they were tilsandia but apparently not) hanging in our @creativemornings_utr space @inderuimte yesterday! They're in what looks like copper chicken wire containers! #urbanjunglebloggers #plants

tipatkins Me trying to take a picture of this was pretty hilarious. I'm even laughing! But anyway, if you're interest in a Beni Ouarain rug, I'm selling. It was used for a week before I stored it again. Look around at prices and if one of these is for you then DM me to discuss. Size is 140cm x 230cm.
Sad it's going but in other news, I'm downsizing to another home soon (hopefully) so it'll never fit! #instagramkoopjeshoek #rugforsale #beniouarain #excusethemessimstillgrading #koopjeshoek

  •   annelies_baes My accountant told me a very interesting fact last week : ' you need to make more regular expenses'. ( no need to say I am listening to him 😇) 2w
  •   tipatkins I'm sure he was more specific about the type of expenses though! @annelies_baes 2w
  •   soyznl So you deserved it! It's a beauty! 2w
