Thursday, Friday.


For Alphabe Thursday we had to study the letter H. I found Houses , Homes and Hotel amongst other words starting with H. Here some photo’s I made this weekend when we visited Volendam and Marken.

Monday, laundry day. Many housewifes in Holland still do their laundry on  Monday.
So here you see it hanging in the garden on a sunny day.

Alleen met de H uizen zou je al een post kunnen vullen, wat zijn ze mooi! Een prachtig plaatsje!

Een fijne avond, Riet! Lieve groet, Ingrid

Wat grappig dat je in Volendam gelogeerd hebt. Ik denk dat Marken mooiere oude huizen heeft. Zag vorige week een tv programma dat Volendam bijna alle authentieke huizen gesloopt heeft. Dat vinden ze armoedig, een huis moet nieuw zijn.

Ohhhh wat snoezig dat kleine
huisje met die zwarte kat, hihi.

Al die huizen zijn zo enig om
te bekijken en al helemaal voor
buitenlanders. Voor hun lijken
het vast speelgoed huisjes.

Heerlijk lieverd, even een paar
dagen met je kleindochters Londen
bezoeken, en shoppen hoort daar ZEKER bij, haha.
Dat gaan volle tassen worden
vrees ik, hihi.

Veel liefs,
Josephine

I like how neat and orderly it looks. :)

Everything is sooo green and pretty there, Reit. I will Google 'Volendam' as it might be a place I would like to stay while in Holland (we were there a long time ago but didn't spend the night).

Thank you for peeking in on me and for your nice comment. I get hungry looking at the food too.

The cat house is just adorable! I love seeing the photos of homes that are so different from the ones I see in my community.

Every photo is wonderful but the one of the laundry hanging out is my favorite. In Florida, we actually live in an RV resort park where it is OK to hang laundry. Most of the ones where we've stayed do not allow it. I love that it is OK.

Oh goodness your photos are lovely! I like that sweet cat house! We need one like that for Tiger! He is a hand full and I need to keep him in his own space! HaHa!
Always joyful to come visit here!

beautiful captures...lovely!

This a wonderful post. Your photos are lovely. the colors of these little houses are charming. My husbands grandparents, both sets, immigrated from the Netherlands. His father spoke Dutch at home. He reads and writes Dutch, but did not teach his 7 boys. Three generations later most of the culture is gone.

Jesh St Germain said...

Believe it or not, haven't been there yet -but I have in Enkhuizen.
One of my friends has a little "broodjeszaak" I think it's called "De Moide" and has a big ice cream cone in front of the patio.

June said...

I loved seeing the clothes out on the lines in the yards dear Riet. The colors of the house are what I love about them too. and the wonderful flowers! Beautiful photos of beautiful houses my friend.

Hi Riet! Wat een leuk plaatsje! En dat in eigen land! Je kan deze post ook gebruiken voor ABC Wednesday wanneer V aan de beurt is. Het zal zeker gewaardeerd worden.

What a beautiful area. I loved the houses and the laundry blowing in the wind.

Jesh St Germain said...

These little houses look so much like a part of the Openlucht museum close to Arnhem that I wonder if they are patterned after these!Thanks for coming by my blog earlier!

Splendid Little Stars said...

This is so interesting! I love seeing what places I've never been to look like. The hotel looks so cozy.
Monday laundry! I rarely see laundry hanging outside.

Jenny said...

Such happy homes and houses!

They are all quite charming. And I'm excited to see how green and fresh everything looks!

Hooray!
