Greetings to all, from the Netherlands

Postby Margriet » Thu Jan 08, 2009 11:29 am

Hello everybody!



My name is Margriet 36 year young and mother of my handsome sweet 12 year old son. Well almost 12 (don’t we all think our own kids are the sweetest and most beautiful?)

I live in The Netherlands between Rotterdam and The Hague in an area that is known as “The glass City” Because of al the greenhouses where they grow fruits and vegetables.



Since I was a little girl I was fascinated by the Victorian style and since two years I discovered that I’m not the only one. More people like the clothing style of that era. Hurray for the Internet!!!.

I’m in The Netherlands a member of a forum called “de Gracieuse”. Because my English isn’t that good I waited to join this site, but now I decided to give it a try.

I really enjoyed all the beautiful costumes here on this forum. I realize there is still a lot to learn for me.

I’ll place some pictures of my creations, and soon some more of my latest I’m working on now.



Greetings to all,



Margriet

Hello there! Your English is just fine, far better than my Dutch is, that's for sure!

I have been through the area you live in. I've been lucky enough to visit the Netherlands twice in the last four years. Your country is lovely and so are your people. I'm hoping to visit again in the next couple of years.

Thank you all for the warm welcome on this forum.
Right now I'm busy with my sewing machine and loving it.
I'll post soon more pictures.

Greetings,

Margriet
