Tulips Everywhere! - Wednesday Wanderings and the Shops Found Along the Way
If I could take an all-expense paid trip anywhere, where would I go?
That was the question of the week posed by my Etsy team, CreateCrochet. And since my Wednesday Wanderings post was due, I decided to combine the two!
My brother lived in Vlaardingen, The Netherlands for about four years and invited me to come for a summer just before my senior year in high school. We did a lot of traveling and sightseeing and I have lots of wonderful memories and would love to revisit many of the places we saw (went to 8 or 9 countries). Holland would be at the top of the list. Since I went in the summer, I just missed the tulip season when the whole country is a sea of reds and yellows, oranges and purples. I would absolutely love to see the tulips in bloom. In The Netherlands. (Visiting the "red light" district in Amsterdam would be fun again, too, but that's a story for another time...)
So, in my wanderings around Etsy today, I'm looking for tulips!
This shop is full of beautifully painted ceramics, not to mention her whimsical face pins! From sassy Diana to sophisticated Mavis, these pins are wonderful, each with a little added bling!! But I'm especially lovin' these tulip goblets! Floral Wine Goblet - Yellow Tulips by The Artists' Loft
The tulips on this lunch tote just jump out at you! It's made of vintage fabrics with two designs front and back, and then it reverses to two more prints! All of them are tulips. How clever is that!! Reversible Lunch Tote - Orange Tulips by Red Hen Studios
This tee is so reminisent of old world Holland designs with its kissing kids and windmill, and, of course, tulips! And did you see the wooden shoe hidden in the design? It's an original hand screen print and there's also a wonderful tulip skirt in the shop! Dutch Treat T-Shirt by Made With Love by Hannah
Well, thanks for coming along today, walking around the Etsy shops and a little down memory lane -- hope you'll come back next week to see where my wanderings will take me!! And what that sneaky little question will be from my Team!!
