This weeks Dutch Dare...


was so much fun to create... We had a very talented guest designer this time Vivian Bonder. The assignment she gave us was to create a lo about something you would miss should you ever leave your home country a little extra was to use paint. Of course I would miss my friends and family most, but trust them to come and visit us often LOL, therefor I choose some food (where did I get that idea LOL) that I would really miss... I love cheese, but now a days you can get that in most countries, I even ate Gouda cheese in Nanjing... one thing I have never ever seen anywhere else though is "boerenkool" (farmer cabbage??) and that is one of my most favorite winter dishes... along with some "rookworst" van de Hema (a Dutch shop which I would miss too).

I started some projects last week but didn't get the change to finish anything, I started a new job two weeks ago and it is absorbing all of my energy at this moment... will make it up in a few weeks I am sure...

Wishing you all a great and sunny weekend!

Geweldige lay out! En ja, ik zou boerenkool ook missen. En mijn zusje. En het onbestendige weer.

Succes met je nieuwe baan. is het wel een beetje leuk?

Of course I miss boerenkool too and I love it that you make a LO of it... Never thought to make a LO about boerenkool and I bet you were thinking I choose this also for this challenge...
