Benjy & The Dutch Tile


After I took this picture of Benjy, I was stunned to see how uncannily it reminded me of an ancient tile I photographed in a 17th century Canal House during my last visit to Amsterdam...
And just for our pleasure, here's another tile from the same house. Don't you love that bunny?

Notice how Benjy looks mysterious on this picture? That's because he and I are planning a life-changing move... More details in the days to come...

Ooh! How exciting! I hope you will give us hints about the mystery so we can take a guess...

My Boy has a lovely tile from the same era, a tiny couple. It's very simple and precious. But I do love your bunny and doggy.

And your Benjy!

Bonne chance with your adventure!

I like Benjy very much! He looks a little bit like a rabbit with those long ears. Is he really an oracle? Because if he is I would like to ask him two questions:
1) Benjy, what kind of dog should I get? I have been dogless for 5 years now and it makes me very sad.
2)Benjy, will I ever get better at dancing the tango if I have no tango partner?
I hope for some insightful answers!

How adorable is your benjy! Also I love these tiles (are they Delft tiles?). And I too am longing to know about your life-changing plan!

Aw, Adorable photo of Benjy. His pose is uncannily similar to that lovely tile. I love Amsterdam, so beautiful. October is a great month to make a life changing move (as I posted about yesterday). You lucky,I wish you well, enjoy the excitement it brings!

Benjy said...

Dear Anairam, I am an oracle indeed, and I always answer bloggers' questions. My little furry heart skipped a beat when I read that you had lost your pooch 5 years ago... I will pore over your questions and answer soon!

littlebird said...

Christina said...

Benjy is so adorable. Laura suggested I come over and download your girl with a dog badge.
