There's a little touch of Holland happening at my house this spring. This wooden shoe found at the great big thrift store is the perfect place for a tulip bouquet. What flower says Amsterdam more than a tulip?
Playtime for me the day I cut the little Dutch boy and girl out and Mod Podged them on the red button jar, remember, CUTE COUNTS! The little three color planter holds a few more silk flowers to cheer up my happy place while I work on crafts.
This little pair has been with me for 50 years, another gift from Great Grandma Gina. The chalkware is in perfect shape and the box they were in states that the set was also part of that trip to President Grant's home in Galena, Illinois. It must have been a very important vacation to that Great Grandma, she saved her souvenirs and gave them to me in 1961.
Now, my latest Pyrex purchase, not Dutch but this Friendship pattern looks like tulips to me. Found at the thrift store, I scooped them up for $ 7.00, less than the cost of a bouquet. So on this May 1st, I am enjoying these colorful tulips on my table. Now, do you spose anyone will ring my doorbell and leave me a May Day basket??
