Pia Jane Bijkerk's "Amsterdam Made By Hand" give away!

Pia's  Amsterdam Made By Hand


Home Beautiful (September 2010)

Vogue Living Australia

with Pia at the American Book Centre in Amsterdam



YES HELLO I AM BACK!! Spend a great week in Majorca but failed miserably in my promise to do a few postings during my time there. It sounds like a lousy excuse but technique abandonned me completely on this beautiful Spanish island. I felt a bit like Robinson Crusoe in the Blogosphere. So today I am making a fresh start, glued to my beloved Mac, I have prepared a little suprise.

On a warm summer day last June I was invited to the book launch of Pia Jane Bijkerk's "Amsterdam Made by Hand". Lovely Australian Pia Jane Bijkerk is an internationally acclaimed stylist, photographer and author specializing in interiors, still life and food. She is the ultimate romantic globetrotter, working and living between Sydney, Paris and a houseboat in Amsterdam. Pia is not only talented but is also a wonderful warm person. Her blog is an absolute must read!


The suprise that I have for you is a signed copy of Pia's Amsterdam: Made by Hand. In this wonderful little book Pia uncovers hidden treasures of Amsterdam: small ateliers of talented artists and designers around Amsterdam's canals.

If you would like to win this inspring book:

1. Add yourself as a follower here and/or on FACEBOOK
2. Leave a comment
3. Tweet about the giveaway for an extra ticket

The winner will be announced on 31st August!

Good luck and enjoy your Sunday!!!

ps  if you do not win Pia's book can be ordered through Amazon! Also available through Amazon is Paris Made by Hand.

  10. Mariska I love Pia's work - her books and her blog are amazing and by fluke I thought about her the other day!

    Majorca is a brilliant place. It is years since I went and I suspect it has changed a lot. Am so glad technology failed. You probably needed a blog free break my dear! x

    Very happy to have you back now and thank you for all your lovely comments. I hope that when we move back to Sweden next year we can meet. Would be so much fun!

    Big hugs and fingers crossed for the give away. I am really really hoping I win! And if I do, don't worry, you will not have to ship to Australia. I am off to Sweden (as you know) in only two weeks time.

    xx Charlotta
