  28. I wish I had such ornamental windows in my house Marie !
    On our last short trip, Johan and I visit Delft (in the Netherlands)
    Do you know Delfts Blue ?
    Delft is a historical city and has so many majestic buildings with the same windows at your image.
    I took dozen photo's then because I like them so much.
    Love the feeling of it !
