Photo of the Day March 7th

This pretty little dish is one of the souvenirs that I brought back from our recent vacation... when we were in Curacao we saw an amazing selection of Delft Blue China in the shops that line the little streets. Curacao is an island strong in Dutch culture and as it's part of the Netherland Antilles the import and export laws allow Dutch produced goods to be sold at incredibly reasonable prices. We brought home both this little candy dish and a wheel of Dutch cheese, which we've got tucked away for a special treat some time soon... perhaps we'll cube it up and serve it in the candy dish for a real taste of Holland.

  1. Very pretty. It's always nice to have something to remember you trip or start a conversation about it. I wonder what I will come back from Mexico with... not much since I am on such a strict budget, but I'm sure I'll find something. Certainly the photos I'm taking will be nice to have... and the remembrance of great, cheap food.
