Delft Blue Miniatures



I have a a small collection of Delft Blue
miniature dutch houses
sitting on the window sill on the staircase landing.


KLM Dutch Airline gave these as gifts on international flights.
I love the architecture of these beautiful old houses,
the detail is wonderful.


Underneath the markings are
Blue Delft's
exclusively made 
for KLM by
BOLS
Amsterdam 1575.
Bols is an alcoholic distillery and claims to be
the oldest distillery brand in the world!
(I should have photographed the underneath - I know)
Maybe my friend Madelief can tell us more about it!



I'm joining Judith for Mosaic Monday
we would love you to join in with your mosaic photos.
I used the online photo editor Be Funky

Thank you all for your visits and comments
Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt

Good fences and the A380




 I took this photo with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 with a Leica lens


The Emirates A380 aeroplane waiting for the runway to clear
at Auckland International Airport
before take off to some exotic destination!

From previous posts, you may have already guessed
I've had a long fascination with aircraft and airports.
For me they offer the opportunity
to connect with family living
on the other side of the world.
Since the A380 commenced flights out of New Zealand
I've dreamed of flying in this aircraft
and I'm hoping to bring this dream to fruition next year!

I took this photo last Sunday just before dusk.




I'm joining Good Fences
Thank you Tex for hosting!




Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt
