Yesterday was Koningsdag or Kingâ€™s Day in the Netherlands. After celebrating Queen Julianaâ€™s Birthday on April 30 for 36 years, we are now honoring King Willem Alexander on his birthday.
Two of my globe-trotting friends have been posting photos of Delft and its porcelain and the Keukenhof’s gorgeous tulip splendor this week so I am definitely feeling a Dutch vibe. My fellow Dutchies posted their Oranje festivities which made me feel connected.
My nostalgia found a channel with a Delft Blue napkin I had been holding on to for a while. It reflects quintessential Dutch imagery often found on pottery.
My blue coat is finally back in rotation after wearing goose down for much too long.
Iâ€™ve also added some highlights to my hair for fun, which actually go well with my safety mask.
Iâ€™m still working on a Winkeljuffrouw pendant that is not aligning properly in my printer. The original print turns out to be a bit too large for a necklace, and shrinking onto a double-sided print is proving to be harder than it should be.
Persistence will win out over this though.
Iâ€™m enjoying the different color combinations and had to remake a lime green version that got snapped up at RAW Chicago.
Let me know what other combinations and shapes you would like to see.
