Hoe trots kun je zijn

Op een van de eerste mooie lentedagen heeft Martijn deze 82 cm lange vis gevangen op de Zaan te Wormerveer. Toppie!
En jammer voor Barend die vorige week al zo trots was met zijn 67 cm snoekbaars.



 Na vijf jaar samenzijn trekken we vandaag de stoute schoenen aan en gaan Barend en ik trouwen.

Yes, today Barend and I are getting married after beeing toghether for the last five years. I.m so excited to be

the bride again at my 60th/


Even snel nieuwe kussens

Vanmorgen even snel nieuwe kussens erbij gemaakt. Het is zo ontzettend leuk om te doen, dat ook dit weer verslavend gaat werken. Oh, waarom gaat de tijd zo snel.

Our new table or our 2 new tables

Barend made me a lovely table for my working space from old wood. Didn.t he do a great job?
Also for the shop of my friend Anja of  (SaenCrea@) he will make 2 of these. So Barend and me are very busy creating all kind of things.

Crochetting, crochet, crochet and again crochet..........................

It was a wonderfull weekend and together with my friend Anja and our partners we had a lovely friday at Voorthuizen. The weather was lovely, so we had the feeling of a holiday. The reactions were great.

Back again

I had busy months, but I.m back again and now into the world of crochetting. It.s like a virus and I don.t mind to crochet with a 1.0 hook or a 12 hook.


Gifts from the sea

Barend loves to go fishing and I like to cook and.... together we also like to eat.......

Party of the year 1969

My son in law had his birthday on saturday and for he is born in 1969 every gast was invited to dress like we did that year. Here are the results of a lovely evening.


Do I like eating what grandma cooked?????

Mammy know.s how grandma.s cooking taste and she is smiling..................................




Yesterday we had our grandparentsday with Beau and Jan. . Beau received her winterclothes that her mother had ordered for her and inspite of the warmth she had to put them on. Jan had that special smile on his face, normally he smiles that way just before he pulls of your glasses or pull your hair.



Janet and Ann Graham Johnstone

My greatest treasure I bought a couple of years ago in an old bookstore. Dean.s giftbook of nursery rhymes with drawings of Janet and Graham Johnstone. Still I.m addicted to old childrenbooks and I like to visit fleamarkets to find new treasures.
