This month I want to introduce you to Bregtje, a blogger and artist living a handmade life in the Netherlands.
Her little house has an unusually large garden by Dutch standards. It is around 1200 sq. feet - bigger than her house! She grows a lovely assortment of flowers & vegetables. Bregtje built her own chicken coop and in the spring she is planning to build a rocking bench for the garden AND... get some chickens!
Did I mention that she built her own kitchen cabinets too? She did!
In addition to being handy with a hammer and nails, she also paints, makes mailart, collages, and crafts these lovely paper flowers.
I'm in awe of her crafty superpowers!
Bregtje has one of those extraordinary minds that excel at creative problem solving. She'd be the kind of person you'd want on your lifeboat if you ran into trouble on the high seas.
Bregtje has a blog HERE called Dutch Homestead. I had a lot of fun poking around over there and know you will enjoy it too.
I have some very interesting women that will be appearing here in this little Glimpses series in the coming months. One lives on an island and another a vineyard in France (!)
Whether you're making messes of your own from a giant studio, or a tiny desk I'd love to feature you here. Regular people making cool stuff from a foreign destination. Don't be shy. Inquiring minds want to see inside your world. Email me for more info.
