Two lovely postcards from The Netherlands , thanks to Instagram and Davina .

I have not been on
for long, and
what you can find are lovely photos!
Whilst doing a search one day ,
I came across a lady named
Davina  who
She also likes to swap postcards ,,
When I got home  there on the table
was a postcard from The Netherlands, not your usual
scene , but this delightful shop ♥


It seems that Les Sabots are the all wooden clog, whilst the
Galoches are a wooden sole and heel and Leather uppers..
If  you would like to know more about the Clog click on the link!
Then today I found another card, which was the first one
she sent ...
from a place in The Netherlands that I have never heard of .. Fryslan.
Leeuwarden, is the capital of Fryslan ",  tens of thousands of visitors a year head  to the north western Dutch province of Fryslan, a culturally distinct corner of the Netherlands. Visitors have placed the city on a touristic pedestal: Leeuwarden has been crowned the best Dutch city with a population under 100,000, and one of the 15 best cities in Europe.
A big thank you to Davina for these wonderful cards .
Yes Davina  did get one from Paris and she loved it!
