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.
