Monday

 

 

Today I am coming with some older photo’s for my favorite Monday memes. These photo’s were taken in The Zaanse Schans, a little village just above Amsterdam which is well known for its wooden shoes museum and its windmills.

As you all might know people did wear wooden shoes , not as brightly decorated as these . They were mostly plain.

I didn’t know these kids but they looked so cute in those big wooden shoes.

Oh they do look so cute in the shoes. I have a pair of plain Dutch shoes brought back to the U.S. after the war as a souvenir from Holland. They are deep in a trunk somewhere. I should get them out and let them have a new life.

Very pretty village this is with some of the most charming homes.

The two little boys in the big shoes look so cute. Do you think their mother posed them there for a photo? The village looks like a fun place to visit.
