About Me

Great, you are looking at my blog.

I am Johanna, live close to Cincinnati, Ohio with my love and the dog. Our two sons live in Toronto, Canada, however we originate from The Netherlands.
I love cozy, beautiful, also kitschy but above all the positive things. I do not like somber and complicated stuff. My heroine is Flora Poste from the fabulous book ‘Cold Comfort Farm’ by Stella Gibbons. She likes it; ” Peaceful, calm and tidy” …I could not have said t better myself;0)



Leuk dat je naar mijn blog kijkt.

Ik ben Johanna, woon vlakbij Cincinnati, Ohio met mijn lief en de hond. Heb twee zonen in Toronto, Canada wonen en kom oorspronkelijk uit Nederland.
Ik hou van gezellige, mooie, ook wel kitscherige maar vooral positieve dingen.
Ik ben niet van de sombere en gecompliceerde zaken. Mijn heldin is Flora Poste uit het geweldige boek ‘Cold Comfort Farm’ van Stella Gibbons. Zij houdt van ;” Peaceful, calm and tidy”…ik had t zelf niet beter kunnen zeggen;0)


Love and Liefs, Johanna.

  1. Hi Johanna

    thanks for visiting my blog. I look forward to read and see more of your fine work in the future – I’m your new follower! 🙂

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Love ♡

    So sorry, that I don’t have more time right now, we’re off in a couple of minutes…

    • Hei & God Dag Dina, Thank you so much for your kind words! I was reading your blog at 4.00 in the morning on a sleepless night: full moon, it does not bother me but I simply am awake. Though not awake enough because I thought I was already following your incredible blog. Pressed the right buttons this time;0)
      Have a lovely weekend and I look forward to see more of your blog as well!!
      Vi ses senere Johanna .

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog! I made a few trips to Cinci back in the 70’s when I lived in Lexington, KY. My friends and I would plan shopping trips! I loved the restaurants and the Shubert Theatre. Can’t imagine how Cinci has changed after all these years! Looking forward to checking out more of your blog.

  3. Thank you Linda! We just moved to the US in December and we love Cinci. We have been told that at the moment they are renovating down town and first results are indeed beautiful and makes the people here very proud and excited. We still have a lot to discover here though;o)
    I just started reading your blog, so interesting. Seems for me a very nice way to learn more about our new home country. Thanks for sharing, Johanna.

  4. Hi, Johanna. I have never been to Ohio, but I have been to the Netherlands a couple of times, working with translators on a church project years ago. I have fond memories of those experiences — Now that I look back on it, I’m glad I only had money to take the bus from Copenhagen to Amsterdam, because of all the beautiful countryside I got to see. I look forward to more of your fun projects!

  5. Thank you Susan! I am happy to hear you love The Netherlands. I have travelled to Copenhagen and Denmark too a couple of times and that indeed is a beautiful journey. Glad to hear you like my blog as well, love the feedback. Love and Liefs, Johanna.

  6. Hello Johanna, Thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking the time out to send me a lovely message. You will never imagine how happy and excited I was!! When somebody sees my artwork and if they were able to empathize, feel warmth, love and happiness, that’s the most wonderful thing. Keep in touch and I’ll be coming back to check yours too x
