tulip and the cabinet dollhouse - made me dream of going back to the beautiful city of Amsterdam. And so a few weeks ago, as torrential rain pounded down outside here, repeatedly flooding parts of the city, I decided to take the plunge and organize a quick visit of the ‘Venice of the North’. Tulip Museum in the heart of the city and did in fact see a few stray flowers in bloom by the lofty canal houses. Wandering alongside the waterways that crisscross the city, I spent hours looking up and into these stunning Golden Age buildings, with their multiple floors and extensive, tall windows, admiring their intricacies and peculiarities, just as I had been hoping to observe, up close, the magnificent dollhouses at the Rijksmuseum.
