Doll's Houses at the Rijks Museum, Amsterdam

These are a few images I took of doll’s houses when I visited the
 Rijks Museum in Amsterdam this year.  

 Various pieces in this dolls house are marked 1676 which is when it was probably completed.  It was made for a wealthy orphan who lived with her sister in Amsterdam.  It consisted of a peat loft, a linen room, a nursery, a lying-in room, a reception, a cellar, a kitchen and a dining room.

Many thanks for visiting and also for all yyour comments.

THROUGH MY LENS - Isle of Wight

Of my 2 weeks on the Isle of Wight, my family were away at a Faith camp for 1 of them and I was looking after Buddy their dog.  These photographs of Anna, my granddaughter, Matthew, my grandson and Gillian my daughter where taken before they left.  The remainder were taken when Buddy and I were out walking.  We often saw Little Egret and Black headed Gulls and they are already losing the colour from their head.

When life is heavy and hard to take,
    go off by yourself. Enter the silence.
Bow in prayer. Don’t ask questions:
    Wait for hope to appear.
Don’t run from trouble. Take it full-face.
    The “worst” is never the worst.

SATURDAY CRITTERS - Mount Stewart Lake

While walking round Mount Stewart Lake near Newtwonards last week, I saw this beautiful Little Grebe who was very difficult to photograph as every time I got the lens focused on him, he usually dived!
