sweet breaks

This day we went babyshopping for little Hanna! I've found tiny Mexican slippers with pompons and a handstitched blue dog. Down at Koekela we're taking a break and we satisfy our hunger with carrotcake and apple pie and tea!

popcorn in the cold

Old and cold. This evening we're on our way to the Korenbeurs in Schiedam. It's a free filmfestival and we're going to see the French film 'Poupoupidou'. Winter time!

out come the wolves

City wolves in the shop window of the Bijenkorf. I like these windows a lot because they change quite often and are always as beautiful as this one. Almost like a page from a storybook.

a message from Amsterdam

A message from Janneke on the beach of my doormat. She always sends me these nice postcards of art works. Thank you! I'll keep it together with all the other postcards.

Handwritings can be beautiful. This one is from work; someone sent us a note, yes! I whish I could write like this.

autumn in the streets

In our neighbourhood all kinds of leaves are coming down. The machines haven't been here for a while and the leaves tend to look like snow. My shoes sometimes disappear in this autumn snow. The bottom photo reminds me of a river that's about to dry up. I like the colours.

the netherlands of Wim Gijzen

This interesting project of Dutch artist Wim Gijzen from 1972 represents a study of all villages of the Netherlands. He visited every village, made a portrait of himself and the villages' name, bought a postcard, made a photo from the shop where he bought it, posted it and made a photo of the mailbox. I really love this kind of mapping and documentation. Very interesting.

art, nature, art

Today we went to Hulst for a visit at the Verbeke Foundation. The scenery and art works are processes in time. It's more a studycentre for art works than a museum but that makes it so interesting. The last photo is a work from a Dutch artist; Jacobus Kloppenburg. He made an archive for the future that contains pieces of the things he made, saw and liked. Really nice! A fantastic day!!
