Fleuri-anne said...

Ooh MY Suzi, the Dutchie girl is soooo beautiful, I looove her!! Haha and I agree with eveline and dreamergirl, I think all of us dutchies are a little upset after we got our asses kicked in football/soccer last night so we can indeed use some love!

Ehmmm I'm trying to think of more dutch words but I can't really think of more than dreamergirl already did...

Well here are some chliché ones, things Holland is really famous for:

cheese - kaas
tulips - tulpen
windmills - windmolens

andd I'll throw in some other ones:

chocolate - chocola
elegance - elegantie
grace - gratie
a heart of gold - een hart van goud
naughty - ondeugend
sweet - lief
loving - liefdevol
pure - puur
soft - zacht
kind - aardig

Anddd that's about all I can think of for now, I hope it's of use to you dear Suzi, I can't wait for the vid and the painting!!

Iris said...

She looks amazing!!!

I'm trying to think of Dutch stuff to teach you but I can't think of anything! Mostly people just ask me for swear words *giggle*

Iris said...

OOH I just thought of it!! I am pretty sure all Dutchies will agree with me on this one:


It doesn't really have a literal translation into English because it's a very Dutch concept, but the dictionary translates it as 'cozy'. It's meant to describe a certain mood of a situation that is nice, amicable, and just.. gezellig!

This is the first Dutch word I taught my boyfriend and after having been to Holland he now knows what it means!

Some examples of where it's used:
-If you're with a bunch of your girlfriends, sipping wine and having girly talks. That's gezellig.
-If you walk into a small cafe and it's got character and a nice atmosphere, you could describe it as gezellig.

OK I'm done promoting this word now, but seriously, it's the BEST Dutch word ever!!

dreamergirl said...

o i agree with iris. Gezellig is the best Dutch word!!!!

Ishthya said...

She's lovely Suzi!

Hmm some more dutchie words...

Art - Kunst
Hugs - Knuffels
Cats - Katten
Sparkles/Glitter - Glitters
Moon - Maan
Sun - Zon
Dream - Droom
Holland/The Netherlands - Nederland
Butterfly - Vlinder
Stars - Sterren
I love you - Ik hou van jou
Greetings - Groetjes
Laughing - Lachen
Magical Creature - Magisch Wezen
Dancing - Dansen
Talking - Praten
Kisses - Kusjes

Well I could go on forever, but for now I'll leave it with this ;-)

Dikke kus! (Big kis)

Chi said...

She looks so purty. I'm especially amazed by the white shirt and her eyes. My white things never look like that...

Some Dutch:
Ik vind je lief - I find you nice/sweet (I think you are nice/sweet)
Door vriendschap wordt vreugde verdubbeld en verdriet gedeeld - Through friendship joy is doubled and grieve is shared

Hope this helps! Lots of words are already covered so I gave you two phrases =)


Eveline said...

How about the 'Loesje' (an organisation that puts posters with phrases everywhere they can, they're brilliant!) classic:

Niet het vallen is falen, maar het weigeren om op te staan:

To fall down is not to fail, but refusing to get up is.

moonsownsister said...

Suz, is that glitter paint, or are you using the flakes for texture?

She's AWESOME, and I can't wait for the video!

Luv and hugs,


LuLu said...

Bonjour Suzi! Love it all! Love the fact that you opened your closet to let everything out! Takes a lot of courage!!! I bet your art flows much better now... Grrrreat latest paintings!!! Go for it, nothing will stop you now! LuLu xxx

cuteartworld said...

I did a Witchie Creation! She is not Wicked Suzi I posted a picture of Jewels my lil one on my blog this morning. She tells us she is a "Princess" Maybe you might like to paint "Princess Jewels" you are welcome to use her picture should you feel inspired!

Iris said...

Eveline: You know what my favourite Loesje is?

Ik ben toch al perfect - I am already perfect anyway.


Iris said...

Argh I got it wrong! It was this:

"Resolutions -

I am already perfect anyway"

I just love the irony but also that there's a truth in it.

Meredith said...
