My Country  Blog Hop, this is where I live… Welcome!

There’s a small little town in the countryside, in the middle of The Netherlands… 
That’s the place where hubby and I live, and we  love – love -  love it.
has a special something, it’s somewhat remote even.

But… Surprise!
In 5 minutes driving
we are on the highway, and able to go anywhere
crisscross  the country. Which is easy, because our  country is quite small!
In another 5 minutes we can visit one of Unesco’s World Heritages,
the former island of Schokland -

...look! Its really worth to read the info! So beautiful.

We live near a (former) harbour, close to the Ketelmeer.
And enjoy  the  colours of the water...
That’s a great source of inspiration
for designing my jewellery too.  It’s lovely to see the world around us changing,
every season, again and again! To see the birds, the flowers and sometimes
the fight of wind and water, when there’s a storm.

And yes, when there is something on my mind, It really helps to take a long walk!

Let me show you some pictures of this beloved place (-:

I made some beads inspired by the colours around me, these are covered with Sunshine
and made a necklace with them, photographed in normal day light.
I hope you enjoyed this virtual visit, thanx for passing by and have fun
visiting the other participants. 
Here is Nan's List :-) with the links!

  9. I love the beads you made! I would love to visit the Netherlands some day, I your part Europe. It's great to live somewhere where you feel really happy to be!

  10. Dini, I was lucky enough to have been to your little country - I had to check this in the encyclopedia because I had thought otherwise - when I worked for an international company. Bicycles are totally appropriate for its flatness, they're not much useful in Lisbon or where I live. Your beads and necklace are totally magic.
