From Holland With Love
I finally found the time to continue the tranlastion of Tizzalicious.com into Dutch. I started it months ago, but so many things came up (changes to be made to the English version of the site, new products, etc), that I never got around to finishing it. I am making great progress now though, which needs to be celebrated by showing you a nice typically Dutch item: My "From Holland With Love Necklace"!
The necklace is made with a ceramic delft blue wooden shoe, a windmill charm, czech glass flower beads and a lucite striped disc bead. All in red, white and blue of course, the colors of the Dutch flag.
If anyone is wondering why the Dutch soccer team (or any other Dutch sports team for that matter) and their supporters always dress in orange, when our flag is red, white and blue, the explanation is simple: Our royal family's last name is "Van Oranje", which means "of Orange".
