Summer Travel Swap

I'm really late posting about this swap. I had another swap to finish & send off for the AllThingsMini that for the life of me wouldn't work out as I had planned. Not only was I on time restrictions ...once again!! but I kept changing my mind on what to make.

For the summer travel swap, my partner was Maria who showed me her beautiful city of Rotterdam. She had me arriving by train and then immediately put me on a bike
which must be one of the best ways to see a city. I've only been to a few European cities (in real life). Their old world charm never fails to fascinate me.
Maria instinctively knew all the things that interest me. We went to an open air market... for a bit of shopping before continuing on to a dollhouse museum...an al fresco meal and then a last look of Rotterdam at night.

Here's what Maria sent me home with as a reminder of my visit with her:
Maria, thank you so much! Hope to see you at Caterina's winter swap.

  5. Your lovely gifts may have come from Rotterdam, but the photos definitely show Amsterdam! The beautiful dollshouse is one of two from the collection of the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam).
