Museum of Bags and Purses (Tassenmuseum)

What a wonderful afternoon I spent together with my daughter at the Museum of Bags and Purses. Such a delight. Such a treat. Just her and me…The location of the museum is fabulous- in the city center on a canal, located in a beautiful building, built back in 1664.The museum is displaying a private collection which belongs to Hendrikje Ivo who collected bags for more then 35 years, dating from the late middle ages up to the present day. The three floors museum is a tour in the history of those times. I was amazed by the extent of the collection and the uniqueness and high quality of the bags.  What struck me the most was the craftsmanship and the detailed work. The design of some of the bags with their hidden pockets is pure art. Its made me miss times that I was never part off.

Happy weekend!

These pictures were taken on Wednesday, in our regular visit at the Central Library in Amsterdam or as it called “De bieb”– one of my favorite places in the city.We can spent hours in there and every time there are new discoveries, not to mention the interior design which is a constant pleasure…  I love it!!! I took this pictures from the 6th floor -beautiful city, isn’t it?  …Happy weekend!
