a few more sights from amsterdam

August 21, 2010

a few more sights from amsterdam….the last and first photos are from the flower market…its fun to walk through but i would recommend any of the other food markets … where the cut flowers are more plentiful and incredibly inexpensive.
and who could resist those giant puffy clouds of meringue??? i couldnt! definitely check out Patisserie Kuyt while you are there and on the same street find the cute little cafe (fantastic coffee with a scrubbed scandinavian atmosphere) pictured 2 photos below. the whole street is lined with wonderful clothing shops, design collectives, the best butcher and cheese monger youll ever find! right off Rembrandtplien

loved this pretty delicate door knocker …its a bit cheeky too dont you think?

a glimpse of amsterdam

August 11, 2010

just back from our lovely outing – we saw two couples married spent time with family and made general merriment on our vacation. thought i would start off the vacation posts with a glimpse of Amsterdam from vondelpark – and look a little bit of handmade to greet us!
