    If ever you decide to go to West Michigan and don't wanna visit my town, then come to Holland during their tulip festival.

    Tulip Time occurs from May 7th to 14th this year where they will show off their 4.5 million tulips they have been planting since 1929.

    They also have a Dutch Village and small permanent amusement park for people of all ages, dancing, much Dutch culture, a museum, historic downtown, and lots of food. Oh, they have a major obsession with windmills.

    This plate was marked at 49 cents in a local Thrift Store. They were having a 50% off sale store-wide, so.... It came home with me. It appears to have some hand-staining done albeit is mostly transferware, but I don't think it's before the 1950s.

      I used to live in Negaunee, and worked in Ishpeming. I moved to the Kingdom Of The Netherlands in 1990. This plate is probably mid-century, as you say. The gold leaf accents were done by hand.
      My mother lives close to Lancaster, PA, and there are also Dutch shops and restaurants there.

      LOL I did, indeed! Icicles used to go from the roof right down to the ground. I had a very small dog, a mix of Chihuahua and a spitz breed. She LOVED it there! Had a ball in the snow. Dopey dog, lol!

      At the animal sanctuary I volunteer at, 10 years ago I'd see just a wall of ice from roof to ground.
      Now you see just snow-- no ice. :/

      Indeed a tiny dog. I like to make snowballs and toss them for my dog to jump up at and try to catch.
