A couple of months ago we visited Noord Babant the beautiful province where I was born and lived  when I was young.

That southern part of our country where most people were Roman Catholic.

  Those beautiful little villages with their old farms that were transformed to beautiful houses.

I loved it.

It was raining a bit as you can see.

Lighting a candle for somebody we loved.

Big statue in front of a restaurant.

Built in 1614 as you can see.

The church in Eindhoven  I went to with my friends.

And next three photo's I made in a lovely little tea-salon and garden.

I am linking this post to:

Ruby Tuesday too:
Our world Tuesday: 

Thank you to the hosts.

Nederland kent zoveel mooie plekjes! En wanneer je met de streek ook nog eens een speciale band hebt vanuit je jeugd, is het extra genieten. Je hebt mooie foto's gemaakt, Riet.

Ik wens je een fijne week! Liefs, Ingrid

Wat een lieflijke omgeving en voor jou een
plek met een extra dimensie. Prachtig die huizen
en dat fantastische beeld, kan daar zo van genieten altijd.

Mooi ook de foto's van de theetuin met al die lieve
snuisterijen hangend in de rozenboog.

Wat zullen jullie genoten hebben op die dag,
bedankt lieverd dat ik even mee kon genieten.

Veel liefssssssssss

Riet, these old homes are really lovely. I like the ones converted from barns. It's a very pretty town. Have a good week ahead.

What fun to re-visit your birth home! The tea salon is sweet, I thought it was a private home at first. And it was a surprise to read that the big statue was in front of a restaurant; I would have thought a Church. It's a beautiful area.

Riet..I do not know where to begin other than to say this is a beautiful series of pictures from the area where you lived. The homes are now so lovely. ..especially the barn turned into homes. The little tea shot is precious...decorated so nicely. And the Catholic church is a lovely one.

Leuk om naar je geboorte grond terug te gaan, wel veel veranderd met al de boerderijen die verdwenen zijn.Maar ze zijn tenminste wel bewaard gebleven en niet afgebroken.

Gayle said...

Inspiring. Thank you for sharing.

You were raised in a charming place. I'm so glad you went back and took these photos.

Have a Happy Blue Monday!

All of the photos are beautiful. But that little fairy garden really catches my eye. I should try to make some tiny dresses like those! How adorable! Sweet hugs, Diane

What a beautiful area you grew up in! Lovely homes and churches. The buildings all look so solid.

Liz Needle said...

A fascinating collection of hoses and buildings. You are so lucky to have grown up in such a beautiful historical area. Riet, your house and garden are stunning.

June said...

This is such a beautiful place! You were blessed to have lived in such a place. I could comb over your photos forever to try and put myself there in those streets and shops. It must be wonderful to visit this beautiful place that means so much to you and appreciate how well things are taken care of and rehabilitated. I wish this was so in the US.
The photo in the tea garden is so pretty. The faerie garden is darling!
sending hugs...
