I took some photographs of my Canal House as I had promised to show you all more pictures of the house. Unfortunately the sun didn't want to cooperate today, so I only have a few photographs to show you. (Click for bigger images).

It is so lovely Josje....it is hard to think of the right words to write....your detail (as always) is wonderful...I always keep a special eye on your blog as I love what you do...you are an 'inspiration'...!!ReplyDelete
This is so beautiful! I love everything, the marble walls, the hanging lamp and all the wonderful flowers!ReplyDelete
Nice detail with the cap on the floor :-)
Ouch! So much beauty it hurts. Your home shines even if the sun doesn't.ReplyDelete
Josje, me encanta su blog. su casa es impresionante una belñleza, siempre que puedo entro a mirar y recrearme la vista. Tiene unos detalles delicados que me encantan. M;uy bonito todo.ReplyDelete
es ist wirklich toll, dass Du so einen schönen Blog hast und man auch Dein traumhaftes Haus sehen kann. Ich bin froh das ich Dich schon persönlich kennenlernen durfte und wir eine schöne Zeit in Ursem bei unserem Workshop hatten. Liebe Grüße Moni
I'm hoping that sun co-operates soon! I want to see more! It looks beautiful!ReplyDelete
Oh my Linda, you're making me blush. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Pubdoll, thanks. The marble walls were inspired by the 1638 entrance hall of the Amsterdam Theatre Museum. I've had the glass for the lamps blown by a glass blower and then made the fittings around it from metal strips etc.
I love Norwegian and Fair Isle style knitting. I know how to do it, but don't like to...so the hat and mittens were knitted by someone else. Unfortunately I can't remember her name. For the composition of the picture the cap just has to be on the floor ;)
Sans thank you, my face just lit up reading your comment.
Gracias Dora. Gozo el trabajar en las cosas más grandes como las paredes etc., pero el detalle es qué hace que viene ' alive' para hablar tan. (Sorry if this is a weird translation, I've used Babelfish ;) This is what I am trying to say: Thank you Dora. I enjoy working on the bigger things like walls etc., but the detail is what makes it come 'alive' so to speak.ReplyDelete
He hallo Moni! Wie geht es Dir? Nett Dich hier zu 'sehen'. I'll continue in English now, you know how German isn't my strong point.ReplyDelete
Great to see you've got a blog too! It's so nice to see what everyone is up to, I'll be one of your followers. I've just noticed you are my 100th follower, thank you. Maybe I should throw a little party, haha. We did have a lot of fun in Ursem, didn't we? Hope you'll be coming to Holland again this autumn. Liebe Grüße, Josje
Mercedes, the sun did come out just now, but it's very 'thin' as we say in Dutch. It is cloudy and very warm and humid at the moment, unusual for us in Holland. Thunderstorms were forecast, but we didn't get them here, even hardly any rain. Anyway, to conclude this weather report ;) sunny weather is forcast for this week, so more pictures are sure to follow!ReplyDelete
Hi Josje, I read that you liked the Queen Anne chair. If you want I could do the embroidery for you. I'm not very good at upholstering, I'm still learning but if you want the stitching it would be a pleasure for me. I've already done one seat cover in that style. You can see it in my blog after the blog list. Just call on me. RosannaReplyDelete
I forgot: if you go to "etichette" and click on "ricami" you can look at a bigger version of the chair. Good bye RosannaReplyDelete
Just beautiful! I want to become small and visit your house. :) I just love the blue and white pieces of China, who made them?ReplyDelete
Thank you for the pictures.
Josje it is absolutely stunning...so much detail there.ReplyDelete
What lovely pictures. The mable walls are just beutiful and all the details you have. Thank you for showingReplyDelete
Josje, you have an award waiting for you at my blog. Please come and pick it up.ReplyDelete
Dear Rosanna, your embroidery is lovely. I love the little tea cosy with the cottage on it. You are so sweet and generous offering to do the embroidery for me! But I think I should do it myself. My friend Christa (an accomplished needleworker, actually a IGMA artisan!) promised to teach me, and it is something I really want to do. Thank you sooo much for the offer though, I really appreciate it! (and I know how to contact you if I mess up!)ReplyDelete
Maia, I love blue and white china and earthenware too! The pieces in the entrance hall are by two Dutch artists. The plates are by Cocky Wildschut, she only sells at the show in Arnhem I believe. The tulip vase is by Henny Staring-Egberts, an IGMA Fellow who makes beautiful pieces. You can visit her website here: http://www.ceramic-miniatures.nl/index.php?page_id=1&locale=en_USReplyDelete
Thank you Tallulah-Belle and Reiko!ReplyDelete
Thank you for the award Casey! As you can see, I've picked it up...:)
