Windy times!

In The Netherlands there are about 1170 windmills, many of which are still working. The most famous mill location is Kinderdijk, but I am happy to say that we live close to several windmills. On this Friday, we visited the windmill in Loosduinen, ‘De Korenaer’ (‘ear of grain’), built in 1721.

In 2016, the windmill got two new volunteers, who operate the windmill whenever they have time and there is enough wind. There is also a small shop, where you can buy biological flour, and honey from the bees in the garden surrounding the windmill.

I took of my heels when climbing the narrow ladder in the windmill. This windmill is open every Thursday and Saturday! You can visit the website at

I am wearing a vintage Anna van Toor flower dress (I have had this for years, quality is great!), Dune shoes and a vintage Hesther van Eeghen handbag that I bought on Ebay. It was more worn than I expected, so I brought it to the local shoe repair shop, where they stitched the seams again and repaired the corners, where the leather was damaged. I love it, when old things get a new life!
