Antiek Treasures

When I was in the Netherlands we went to a wonderful village called Zaan Shaanze…

It had a great antique store…with many wonderful treasures….sadly my bag just wasn’t big enough to bring it all home with me!

I particularly liked the well worn antique clogs…

…and this lovely blue pair has made their way home with me…

“How beautiful are the feet that come bringing good news…”


Up in the air I fly….

In a week and a half Dan, Noah and I are flying off to Europe!
This week has been tying up all the last details of our trip…
We just heard back from some relatives in the Netherlands who we are going to stay with…
I can’t wait to meet them. They live on a farm near the German border and will take us to my grandmothers family farm. The produce from the farm sustained my father and his family during the second world war…I am really looking forward to physically being in that place that has so much history from the generations that came before.
The painting above hangs on my parents wall….

…so does this one…..

….these were some of my grandma’s kitchen containers from the Netherlands….kind of random but really its these familiar kitchen utensils that hold so much history. The countdown to take off begins!!
