My friend Kay sent me this picture from our visit to the little shoe factory in The Netherlands. This is a fresh batch of children's shoes piled up for drying. The shoes are made from Willow which has a high moisture content making the shoes easy to carve. It was fun to see that the people really do wear them in the garden. My neon orange ones are surprisingly comfortable!

That's Dutch for Greetings! What a beautiful country and such warm and welcoming people. The stamp convention was a blast! As you can see from the pictures below, we went to a little wooden shoe factory where we got shoes (size 42!) to decorate ourselves. We had a nice picnic near a canal in the countryside. Can you tell it was cold! I think there must be more bicyles in Holland then there are cars. I'll have more to say and more pictures to share later. For now, I'll say Dikke Knuffel!
