They are a sweet little pair. I especially like their dog Takkie, which is a play on the word Tekkal, whch means dachshund.. and you know how I love those little weiner dogs :) I really do think we should all live in Holland....

There's no harm in trying. While you're there could you pick one up for me? (By the way, there's a really nice, big national park near Arnhem, the Veluwe. In the northern end there is a beautiful museum with a really interesting outdoor sculpture park. There's also 1,000 free white bikes in the park you can use while you're there :)

The Dutch have a similar word/expression - gezellig. It can't be translated into english either. While you're in Amsterdam you might want to check out Droog Design: Very cool stuff there. I love that dish rack! Your posts about your trip plans make me want to start planning a trip somewhere...

Thanks for the inspiration, they are lovely. I really do need to get back into the pottery studio. And I do need a new set of mugs... :)

I completely understand. There have been many moments when I've been "done" but the project isn't done. But your bathroom is looking great, those nooks are awesome.

You're welcome to come over and use our shower/tub anytime.
That sounds tempting :)

Yum! Around next Christmas we'll have to share some Dutch Christmas bread. It has fruit bits but also a big gooey almond paste centre - so so good.
