Let's Go Dutch!

I thought this was a quirky and appropriate title for this blog....then realised that it is a very 'English' expression.  For those of you who mightn't know - it just means a couple each paying their own share when going out for a meal or date. Ummm - maybe I should have thought of another! they are a 1/24th scale couple in traditional costume - or at least my interpretation of it. I admit to being slightly anxious that someone will point out a glaring error.

It was a fun commission from long-time customers and friends and made a nice change. I Googled like mad and found so many fabulous examples of the various regional costumes. Just lovely!!

I'm just back from a week away - yes it rained!! Our lawn looks like a field...with lovely daisies and clover flowers......the borders resemble a colourful jungle with everything twice as tall as it should be and falling on it's neighbour.  At least you can't see the weeds!!

Thank you for looking and a warm welcome to new Followers.

Very good approximation of a Dutch traditional costume from Volendam with a hint of Marken or Hindelopen! They are gorgeous!

Oh thanks Idske - what a relief!
Glad you like them too Susan - it's fun to get back to 1/24th scale for a bit.

Thank you all - I'm just finishing another group of 1/24th scale - quite different again. I'll show them in a day or two.
