The beauty of it all!
While I am sitting behind my computer, taking little sips of my Cranberry tea, big snowflakes are falling down. On a day like this I almost bubble with excitement. When I walked through the old town of Schiedam during my lunch break, I realised what a lucky person I am, to have all this history on my doorstep. The snow only adds to it's beauty. The old houses that look like a scene from a painting of one of the old Dutch masters. The ice on the canals. The people wrapped up in their thick wintercoats, wearing all kinds of funny hats. Sinterklaas decorations adjourning the streets. I could go on and on.......I realise not all of you will be happy with this weather, but I hope that despite the disadvantages that come with it, you will be able to see the beauty of it all!
Last week I met Ingrid from the blog Home and Lifestyle. From the moment we met we started talking and didn't stop until two hours later. There was so much to share. It was like meeting an old friend. She even brought me two beautiful light blue placemats, covered with roses, for in my garden house. Ingrid, thank you once again for the lovely present and afternoon. It was so good meeting you! I hope one day you will be able to see for yourself how your placemats look on my garden table.
Wishing you all a happy weekend. Enjoy your Sinterklaas!
Lieve groet, Madelief
