Christmas is over and we are getting ready for the New Year.  But first my last Friday photo’s for this year.

These photo’s  show the weather over here these last few weeks, grey skies and rain, kind of depressing.

Good we have Christmas and candles in the home to make it look more friendly. ))

Just before Christmas I want to post this blue and yellow collage, giving a bit of a summery  feeling. The weather over here is grey with lots of rain ,day after day. Very depressing.

  I am really hoping we will get some sun soon.

I posted this collage long ago but if you remember I am sure you won’t mind.

Alphabe Thursday.

This week we work on the letter E for Ms Matlocks class. It was not a real Easy letter but I found a few words and photo’s to go with them.

The two little girls are our granddaughters 11 years ago. I was looking at their Eyes and how they loved to Eat their ice cream.
I also found Elephant, Estate and I like to think it points East.

I want to wish you all A Happy Christmas.

Monday, Tuesday.


These last weeks before Christmas are always so busy, at least for me. So less posting than usual , but I don’t want to miss the Monday memes.  I found photo’s of Royal Delft in my files so I thought I might show these again. As you can see Royal Delft does not only make blue ceramics.

This is one of their most famous designs. This monumental tulip holder is 48 inches high and so  beautiful. The photo is not that good as the vase was behind glass.

Of course there are many different pots and vases and as you can see also in yellow.

This ceramic tile plateau is made after that  famous painting from Rembrandt “de Nachtwacht”
