Hog-Money

On our second visit to Amsterdam in 1993 (my first flight), we did things slightly differently and rather than just hang around the city as we’d done on honeymoon, took a coach trip to the Delft factory.
Wanting a little memento, we purchased a money-box, though never put anything in it as to get it out, would have meant smashing it!

We had a bit of a shock when we converted the dutch guilder amount to sterling, and discovered we’d spent nearly twenty pounds!
Still, it is a collectable and authentic, having a limited edition number stamped on the bottom.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    so adorable. I have a weird container made out of Anchorage cook inlet clay which I love. There is something about a handmade ceramic which is precious (to me). For years I kept a ceramic copy of the lord’s prayer that I was given for my confirmation. I think the fragility is part of the charm.

    • We see several ceramic books in gift shops here, but they are all manufactured productions, nothing original. I like originality, even if it means a slight mistake in the paintwork or size proportion.
