I have a fascination with windmills, wooden shoes, blue and white tiles, and anything else Dutch-related.
I can't explain my attraction to the Dutch. As far as I know, I don't have Dutch ancestors.
Dutch accessories are just charming. I bought this flatware at Kohl's years ago, and I don't remember the pattern name, but I haven't ever seen it there again.
I've had the cobalt blue glass chargers for a lot of years. I bought them at one of those kitchen outlet stores. I used Myott Finlandia dinner plates I've collected these dishes everywhere (estate sales, junk stores, and a yard sale).
I used vintage cobalt blue water goblets and wine stems that belonged to my mother.
Dutch tiles became coasters at each place setting.
The "zout and peper" shaker set are marked "Holland". I bought them at an antique store.
I served salad dressings from Myott Finlandia mugs.
The vintage tin is a little rusted inside, so I lined it with aluminum foil before using it to serve crackers.
The pitcher belonged to my mother. I've been told that the pitcher and mug set depict fairytale scenes.
These shy (I guess they're shy, because they won't look up at the camera) Dutch figurines also belonged to my Mother. (Maybe she's why I'm drawn to Dutch things.)
