On Sunday next week, May 19
I will be at the art fair in Buren
Buren is a small historic town
just between the two big rivers that run across Holland
east to west (in the "Betuwe")
Buren is called "Oranje-stad" because
William of Orange (ancestor of our Royal family)
married Anna van Buren in 1551
The art fair is held in the garden of the former orphanage
(now the "Marechausseemuseum")
I finally found a good way to show
my tiny felted birds on small wooden discs
The wren and the long-tailed tit were the first.
And there are more textile necklaces in the making
a blue one and a green / turquoise one.
I still have a hole week !
Near the front door we had some serious trouble
with the sewerage, so that had to be taken care of ...
I really feared for this beautiful shrub
(don't remember the name but it is in full bloom just now !)
so I pruned it considerably smaller !
Digging a BIG hole was needed
the man came up with a brilliant solution !
(pfffffffft ... shrub saved !)
