We spent a lovely couple of hours enjoying the hospitality of the hosting couple in their charming old Dutch farmhouse, eating a super lunch of pumpkin soup (pumpkins home-grown), haring ( herring) on white bread, warm breads topped with delicious cheese, pate, and salads, a yummy apple/apricot crumble, and sharing tales of our life experiences as world citizen Baby Boomers.
I made a few snaps of the "boerderij" (farmhouse) that I thought you might enjoy:
The side entrance.
The front entrance.
The street where they live.
My favorite place inside--the pink kitchen. (And she has my china pattern--well at least the Villeroy en Boch version of my Franciscan Desert Rose)
A better shot of the copper funnel lamp. And Delft blue and white tiles as backsplash.
View from just inside the front door.
Cozy fireplace in the living room.
Beautiful seed wreath. (Lunaria or Monkey Plant)
What about this sunflower seed head wreath?
Artichoke sprayed gray? Maybe. (Update: this beauty is made from a bike innertube!)
A lunch to remember!
Thanks, Dutch friends!
