ilove Queens day

If you ever have the chance to be in Holland on the 30th of april, please come and visit. It's the day our Queen celebrates her birthday and everyone has the day off.

This is her with a slightly trendier hairdo than usual.

Orange is the color of the dutch royals so everybody ( and i mean everybody) dresses in orange.

Even the tulips join

People sell their old junk on the street, but  if you like vintage (as i do) this is the day for you.

The canals in Amsterdam get a little bit crowded with little boats.
Happy Queens day :D


  1. How fun! I would love to come visit you! Hope you have a wonderful day! xoxo

  2. Wow, how great is that. The orange tulips were gorgeous, i don't think I've ever see that colour before, K x

  3. What a great day to celebrate...xv

  4. how I would LOVE that!!! Your Queen sure made me smile :) That is too funny with her orange hair. Actually I JUSt learned that about Holland when the Olymipics were on! Orange! I look terrible in orange but if I ever get to visit...I am totally weraing orange no matter what day it is!!!

  5. You just have to love it when your Queen's Birthday gets you the day off! Long live the Queen! Hope you have an extra terrific day!

  12. Just stumbled my way over via French Essence and you've got a lovely spot here. So, what is mystical about the color orange for this special day? :-)
