After a few quiet days I am showing some  photo’s for different  Monday memes.
First for Mosaic Monday I want to show some vintage in my home.  Vintage is fashion they tell me.
And at my age I have plenty of that .

5-van alles wat in huis en sneeuw1

For the different memes I have:

First my queen Anne chair. Of course it has  had different upholstery over the years.

My Japanese teacups


The beautiful crystal glasses I gave my husband as an engagement present  53 years ago.
I have 4 wineglasses and 5 sherry glasses left.


And the beautiful hand painted Herend tea cups of the teaservice I have.


And another mosaic  with outside photo’s I made this week.

The picture of your Queen Anne chair is so soft and dreamy, it makes me wanna grab a book and sit down to read! I like the coffee cops as well - my mom has a similar set, I cherish the moments with her ;)
Lovely pictures, Of a lovely home, Riet!

Beautiful . . . I love your Queen Anne . . . and the thought of your crystal gift to your husband many years ago. I am reminded of carrying our chosen china pattern cup and saucer, in a small box, on my lap, as I flew to meet him before our wedding . . . sweet memories.

Erg leuk om foto's te zien die een tipje oplichten van de sluier in je huis!

Een fijne avond! Lieve groet, Ingrid

P.S. Je smiley is overigens de eerste afbeelding die in beeld komt in mijn dashboard, groot en vaag. Ik weet niet of dat de bedoeling is, vandaar dat ik dat even meld :).

You have a wonderful collection of vintage things! Thanks for sharing them with us.

Josephine said...

Ohhhh maar dit is Prachtig
lieve Rietje, de verzameling
Japanse theekopjes, de mooie
handbeschilderde porseleinen
kopjes, wauwwww.

En je Queen Anne chair, ook al
zo'n schoonheid, die heerlijk
zit lijkt me.

Het valt me op dat bij jullie
de natuur nog zo groen is.
Hier zie je al erg veel geel
en allerlei rood tinten.....

Geniet van een fijne nieuwe week,

I love your Queen Anne chair! Beautiful mosaics Riet. Have a great week.

Faye said...

Riet, I salute you for your marriage longevity! I am also in the same boat (married 55 years). Your photo shows that your husband robbed the cradle when you married! LOL! What a lovely post you have made today. I love the hand-painted tea cups.

Ruth Hiebert said...

I love all that old glass ware. It is so much prettier than most of the new stuff.

eileeninmd said...

Riet, your vintage items are lovely. My favorite are the teacups. They are so pretty and a lovey collection.
Beautiful photos and mosaic, have a great week!

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

Hello Riet,
I'm realizing more and more the most of the things in my home qualify as vintage! I understand! LOL!

I love seeing some of your lovely things. It is not often that you share your home and I love seeing a small part of it.


podso said...

Just lovely, Riet. Those little glasses ... such a nice mosaic. And I love a look outside too. I just love Holland.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

You surround yourself with beautiful things! I love the Japanese tea cups! And your mosaic is lovely! Hugs!

Vee said...

The chair has such pretty lines...I also like the tea many patterns to appreciate. Everything is beautiful and how nice that you have so much of your crystal glass set left. I have none of mine! Yikes.

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Your entire collection is beautiful Riet, and I'm sure each piece holds a treasure of memories. I love your china pattern!

Shane Pollard said...

I love all your vintage things Riet.
I'm like you most of what I've got is vintage - I'm a little vintage too and have been married 42 years!

I've linked my new post today to Little Red house too, photos taken when I was in France!

Nice post for MYM!

biebkriebels said...

Je hebt mooie voorwerpen verzameld. Als je ze zo op een foto ziet, zie je pas hoe mooi dingen zijn. Je bent er zo aan gewend dat het het soms niet meer ziet.

lorik said...

Great shot of those beautiful teacups. I would love to drink tea from one of them:) I like your Japanese cup collection too:) Indeed, art is everywhere, as Chris and Angela said.

Riet said...

I love that Queen Anne chair, Riet.

Please come back to Blue Monday and link in again WITH A PICTURE.

I emailed you earlier, but got no response.

That chair is beautiful! I find that I am starting to have more and more vintage items too, but most of mine are junk. :-)

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Travel Quest said...

I love all your collections Riet, visiting from Blue Monday.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

So pretty Riet! (Funny about it being easier to have vintage stuff at your age; I know what you mean ;>)

Pondside said...

Beautiful, Riet! My eyes were immediately drawn to the Herend cups and saucers, and I'm glad you identified them.
