The Dutch dress up in the most wonderful, extreme, awful, cute and ridiculous orange outfits and sell the junk from their attick on the free market. Or they buy other people's junk from the attick. Recycling, music and great atmosphere galore.
We celebrate Queen Beatrix's birthday, although she was born on januari 31st. Actually it is Juliana, the queen mum's, birthday. She was born on april 30. But it is a bit cold to sit in the park with your orange cupcakes in winter, isn't it.
A couple of years ago I bought the felt brooche with Juliana-stamp on the free market. Very nice idea. In a magazine I found the pictures of cushions with Queen Juliana stamp on it. They are made from linnen and the designer sisters who made them, got their inspiration from a stamp album.
