They are the subjects of 2 of my FAVORITE books.
It doesn't matter if you are planning a visit or not,
these books will transport you to 2 of the
most beautiful places on earth. I think.
I picked up PARIS: MADE BY HAND last year
and fell in love.
The author, Pia Jane Bijkerk is a stylist and photographer.
She lives on a houseboat in Amsterdam.
How COOL is that?
I'd love to spend a day with her. Big sigh!
Oh, the places you could visit (sounding like Dr. Seuss).
Hubby even looked through the book.
Now, that is a first!
When I saw she had a new book out, I knew it was calling my name.
I love Amsterdam, love the Dutch (was "almost" Dutch years ago)
and adore the book.
AMSTERDAM: MADE BY HAND is a treasure trove
full of unique little shops.
Her descriptions, and photo's make you want to take the first flight out.
Hubby gave this one a "thumbs up" also.
We are not planning a European adventure in the near future
but when we do, I will be taking these along.
On a different note- Tommy is holding his own. Yay!
My precious DIL Dorothy, went into premature labor last week
but all is well for the time being.
I think newbaby2010. ver 4.0 will
be born in August and not September.
Saying prayers that all goes well.
Have a wonderful week.
