It's King's Day in the Netherlands today and while for most of the Dutch people that means traveling from everywhere in the country to the capital city to drink beer until they drop down, for us, the mothers (and sometimes the fathers), it means selling old toys or self made stuff from and with our kids. Or not exactly with our kids, but more on our own, because after three minutes the kids take off with their friends and the mothers have to run the business.
My daughters have been busy all weekend making earrings. My husband made a nice board for them to hang the earrings from. Unfortunately the weather forecast says snow (the first time we have snow this year, now that it's spring; unbelievable), so I so hope for my daughters, and also a lot for myself, the weatherman will be wrong.
To eat after selling I made orange tompouces (Napoleons). Everything is orange and red/white/blue at King's Day, because Van Oranje (meaning 'from orange') is the surname of the Dutch king and red/white/blue are the colors of the Dutch flag.
