    My sweet hubs added crown molding and beadboard to my outdated 1980's oak cabinets. He then painted them a creamy cottage white. I love the brushed silver pulls he put on the doors and drawers.

Aloha Patti! Love this post and all the photos of wonderful Dutchness! I have the little Dutch children tea set - it will be Holland Week at our Preschool here in Hawaii next week. So happy to have found your cute blog and to see we are kindred spirits with a love of bright color, too! One of my great great aunts was from Holland and named Fanny DeBeer. As a child I always imagined her scrubbing her front steps. She inspired me to grow up rather fastidious, teehee. Your family sound wonderful. Best wishes for a lovely 2013!

Love your collection! We once lived in a "dutch" town in SD. It took me a while to realize that we were some of the only brunettes who lived there! :)

What a lovely story....Your collections are sweet....and your hearts are super....!


Hi Patti, I'm new to your blog, LOVE all YOUR photos n stories.
I'd very much love to see all of your Mary Engelbreit goodies n if you can be kind enough to tell the story behind each one especially the dolls ie where n how you got them.
Thank you


Patti, What a delightful post! Your Delft treasures are such a wonderful link to your husband's heritage. LOL! I must have some Dutch in me somewhere as I have the palest eyebrows ever!
Your paper Valentines simply make me swoon. I have a couple of special Valentines I hope to give a go at with the Patti look. If I can't get it right, I'm sending them to you! Have a lovely week! Elizabeth


How very pretty each blue and white treasure is, Patti. What a sweet beginning you and your husband's a perfect Valentine's story.
Thanks for sharing about your husband's family. My Newman family relatives came from Holland. They eventually immigrated to England thankfully before Hitler and WWII. They were Jewish. They became Christians along the way. My Grandma shared wonderful stories about them when I was a child.
What a wonderful post!
