These beautiful tulips I got from our son and his girlfriend when they came from Amsterdam to visit us. As you may know Holland is the country of tulips !

My cleaning lady had been in Poland in her family during Easter holidays and when she came back she brought me these cute little cat group !

Mr. Gattino had his birthday and got a real special gift :

a piece of Michael Schumacher's Ferrari he had used during the Formula 1 in 2000 with a certificate of origin. I didn't even know that Ferrari is selling souvenirs !

Hi. I came over here - all the way to Belgium via Kelli's Show & Tell. Beautiful flowers and I love the little cats figures. I visited Brugge in 1999. We were on a tour so didn't get to stay very long. Would love to go back. It's beautiful.

What a cheerful happy blog you seem to have here. I came over for the Show and Tell. I adore tulips and your little kitty curled up by them is precious!

A piece of a Ferrari? WOW!I can't wait to tell my 10 year old son about this tomorrow. He is now at the age where he loves cars and talks about them continuously. He'll love seeing the photo here.

Good Morning (over here at least) from Texas! Thanks You SO much for stopping by. I never thought about the anorexia angle on the book, you're right! Although if my really bad German serves me correct, wasn't it 5 days that Kaspar didn't eat his soup? I could diet for 5 days and have a LOT of chubby still there! Ha ha!

I LOVE the tulips! They are almost done blooming here and they are such a "Welcome Spring" kind of a flower! Thaey are like daisies in that, I can't help but smile when I see them!

The tulips are beautiful. The cats are so cute -- hoe thoughtful of your cleaning lady to get them for you! I didn't know Ferrari sold souvenirs either.
