More Goodies from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam

I'm very glad that so many of you have been enjoying photos from our trip.  Here are a few more from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

I had hoped to see some samplers, but that was not to be.  At least these all involve needlework.

Oh Ellen, I do love seeing these goodies. I especially love the ivory box and the thimble in the painting. Swoon!

Wow, so beautiful! The pair of scissors in the etui looks like the reproduction from Sajou. Gorgeous!

Spectacular! WOW!!! I love every photo:)))) Gorgeous needlework boxes. And the goldwork is remarkable on the chair and banners or runners. Beautiful purse too.
thank you for the close up on the painting because I couldn't see the thimble the lady is holding - so cool.
love Annette
