I miss Amsterdam


I love living in New York, but there are times i miss my old city. Maybe it has something to do with the holiday season that makes the missing even more. I miss Amsterdam with it's lovely canals and those gorgeous canal houses. I wish i could buzz myself over and have an afternoon with friends, drinking coffee, chatting away and walking through the city. Thinking about that gave me the inspiration to make some illustrations of those wonderful canal houses.

Amsterdam is my favorite city when it comes to shopping.

I got a pair of panties today that screams Ismoyo!
They are pink with sun-bathing monkeys on them! :D
(See my blog.)

I just love these! Yes I miss Amsterdam [and my friends] too it's just so relaxed compared to London...

And I never had a good 'koffie verkeerd' here :-O

You bring back memories, I might come back to have another look at your beautiful illustrations!

Question. When is the flea market day in Amsterdam? Is it April 30?
I know it's on every year...
We are planning to go there by car and go mad on shopping.

The Dutch Flea Market Day (Queensday) is indeed on April 30th! You're going? I'm totally jealous!
There are no permits for actual flea market activities in the city center, just for parties and such (it can get hectic there). For the best thrifting i would recommend checking out Amsterdam South. It's amazing!
