WHY GEZELLIG?

The Dutch have a special word to describe “cosiness”, “comfort”, but it’s also something that goes a little beyond that. “Gezellig”. Pronounced correctly, it kinda sounds like you’re clearing your throat, but this blog explores its meaning by documenting experiences that make life richer and deeper; through food, family, and the making of a home.

Rifle Paper Co

by amanda on October 29, 2014

A client once told me that his department had done research into internet searches and it turns out that most people are incorrect about how they found a particular website. Apparently our memories fail us when we want to know exactly what brings us to a site in cyberspace. So if you are contacted by someone and you ask how they found you and they say “Oh, I just googled and found your website”, don’t hold too much faith in what they have to say…!

So I can’t tell you exactly how I stumbled upon Rifle Paper Co., except that I am so very glad I did. Not only is it a gem of a website to browse, the products they sell are to die for. I mean, just look at this wallpaper!
