Old fashion papercuttings

For many years those papercuttings are mine, my grandmother(1888-1956) gave them to me.
In my childhood I played with them. My gran never said she made them so I think they are from here mother.
They are treasures for me.The smallest is 2,5 inch the largest 4 inches.

My Christmas Wallhanging

I made a wallhanging from the hearts who where made for a swap with COH.
After a few months in my album I took them for myself, sorry girls!!!
I'm rather pleased with the result althought I'm not a person who like X-mas things all over the house.

The live of a tulip

This is the last part of the bulbs.
The bulbs are planted just for the flowers we can buy to put in vazes. So you see Nico here planting them all hand by hand.

Here the bulbs are ready to go for 16 weeks in a cold-storage.
In the cold-storage.So they create a early winter for the tulips.

The live of a tulip

It is November the bulbs are ready to plant. They make the fields ready with a plough and after that the tulips goes into the ground with a big planter. You can see the whole process here.

In this field the tulips are planted, so next April it is a coloured field again.
