As found

Two beautiful children's books. 
The top one is a Norwegian picture book. 'Dyra Vare' means 'Our Animals' and opens out to a beautiful farmyard scene.
Below is a Dutch book from the 1940's found on the market in Ghent. 'Hansel and the Secret of the Animals'. 
I just like them.......

Everything is coming up roses

 Two new pieces of furniture from Brown and De Rose. A pretty little bureau, hand painted with decoupage 'toile de jouy'.

 And a sweet little cupboard with decorative handle and glass shelf inside.

 Linda completed her rose boyfriend cardi just in time for the trip to Belgium. It's a Kim Hargreaves pattern from Breeze - with additional intarsia rose tattoo.

Going Dutch

We had a wonderful weekend in Belgium. This IS actually us - hope you can tell. From left to right Susan, Donna, Hellie, Linda, Dany and Karen. We had a lovely day in Ghent on Sunday and managed to fit in the brocante market, lunch at The Belga Queen, boutique shopping, numerous coffees and the infamous gin bar.
