Dutch Treat ...

As many of you might know, both of my parents are Dutch, they met here in Canada approximately 50 years ago. Thought I'd share one of my favorite Dutch treats with you...wonderful, colorful sugary sprinkles ("Vruchten Hagel") that you douse onto "crispbakes" - round crisp toasts. Aren't they the prettiest color?

They're such a nice treat with tea and the kids love them too. I get them from a local Dutch store.

After 10 weeks of waiting, we finally got our carpet...they cut it a little short but it still warms up the room. Mr. Wilbur of course had to get into the shot. Now that that I am looking at this shot I am thinking - light carpet, big dog.

What was I thinking??!!

Anyway, in other news...

Natalea from Kandeland gave me this wonderful Arte Y Pico Award

This Award is "dedicated to many who nourish and enrich the spirit and creativity" as described by it's originator - http://arteypico.blogspot.com. I am so thrilled, thanks Natalea, you're a sweetie!

I would like to pass this on to a couple of girls who inspire me -
my bff Janet, Ruth (my cyber bff!)

and a new friend I recently found in blogland - KayEllen! ...

I would give it to my sister Melody but she doesn't have a blog....but check her out on Flickr. She is uber talented! :)

Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!
