Dalai Lama and some more random finds

Some new and some older pics.
"Elke dag, zon of regen, kom je leuke dingen tegen!"

This guy looks a bit like the Dalai Lama doesn't he?

Here I found a stick that was put in this concrete pole, in the middle of nowhere. I love such finds. :)

Hihi! A piggy-bank-piggy. For Sullivan. It looks so funny.

This is a lovely piece of street-art. I really like it. Why? Well... It is not in screaming colours, it is gone in a few months time (I think), it is simple, but it has quite a strong expression.

Here is this man again... Is it the Dalai Lama?...

And here is another buddhist monk. Wonder why they are stuck on these rainpipes...

Amazing Asian Items! And I found Hammie's art.

Today Sullivan, our owners and I went to a fun place called 'Amazing Oriental Warehouse'. All the stuff you need to make an oriental dish.
Here are some funny things I encountered.

They had these bottles with a bulldog on it. Funny picture. It was some kind of soy-bean sauce. Without dogs, I hope!

This one is really puzzling! It is a plastic mayonaise bottle (as you can see on the board under it) but it has a picture of a baby on it!? What is going on here? Do they make mayonaise out of babies, or do they use the sauce to rub on lil children? Weird...

Spam, spam, SPAM! Wunderful spam!. :D

I really like the sketchy bird on this mortar...

Look Hammie!!! I found the pic of this funny guy! Yaaaaay! But I still cannot find the ZOZ-buidling... Exiting picture hunt! ;D

On the same wall there were these pictures of musical women.

I got mail! Again!!!

I got mail! Just like Sullivan.
Hammie and G. send me a postcard. A very nice one aswell!
With lots of pics from their hometown 'Stadskanaal' (Directly translated=> 'Citycanal', it is the canal made by or leading to 'Stad' (the city) and thats the name for Groningen in the 'Ommelanden' (the surrounding province).

Hmmm... Pictures!


See!? It is mailed to ME! Coco... Hmmm... Thanx Hammie!

More stickers, an arrow, funny cat and a scary peep-hole...

Hi all!
Again some more stuff I want to show.

First there is this sticker of a winged-rocket-robot-guy! Very nice. He even has antennae! Looks happy.

And this one I found for you Eve, look! It's Emily! :D

One of the bicycle-pump stickers. It says: 'I ride, you pump'. Funny!

Another arrow. Indicating that one has to go that way... But the thing is, there was no other way! Typical oversigning. We love that in the Netherlands.

Ooh! Ooh! One of my favourites!!! Don't you just love this home-made sticker!? Sprayed and all. So cute... In a weird way... (is that a... oh well!) :D

To finish I show you this slightly creepy peep-hole. It sat in a very old door. With some little door behind the hole. Mysterious...

New stickers, stock-skulls, eyes (yes, again!), a leaf and tarmac

Today I got some blog-time! Here are some pictures I made earlier, but didn't have the time to post.

On this rainpipe I found a lovely skull sticker. Cool huh!? Somebody even cracked his dome! :D

More hidden treasure. Like the title from a Calvin and Hobbes comicbook "There is treasure everywhere". A funny looking animal-thingie-sticker!

Together with Sullivan I found this stock of skulls. This one has very large teeth!

Rodents galore! :D

In a small side-alley I found more eyes! So nice... Love them!!!

This leaf I saw when we were walking. It is almost gone, soon it will vanish. Beautiful.

And here is a pic of me testing some crispy fresh tarmac. Not that I like all the new roads people are creating everywhere, but I wanted to show the nice texture. And this was new tarmac on an old road. :)

WOOOOHOOOOO! I found art in my mailbox!

It has been quite a while since my owner found time to help me post on my blog. But today he just had to! No way out! (haha!) 'Cause today I got a magnificent piece of 'found-art'! It is so wonderful, we had to post directly. It is sent to me by Beanie Mouse who also has his own blog, called found-art. Beanie and Andrea make art out of objects they find and then they lose it again, so other people can find it! And if you find lost-art, it gets found-art and you can tell Beanie where you found it. Great fun!!!

Look! I got a flip-flop by mail!!! It is great! Here I am enjoying the perfect fit. But of course it's not meant to be worn anymore.

I really love it! It must be fun as well to take it to the sea and surf on it! :D

The flip-flop (in Dutch it's called 'slipper', don't ask me why...) has a beautiful picture of a bird on it. I think it looks like me! Everybody can see that it is mine. :)

It also has a flower on the straps. Most remarkable, cause it was send the way it is. No envelope or wrap! And the flower is still on. The mailmen must have been very surprised.

See? 'MY' flip-flop! Not my owners, it's mine! All mine! (hihi)

And Beanie mouse made it! THANX! Thanx very much Beanie! I have been finding art myself, so soon you can find art in your mailbox too.
