Where's Michele?


In the scan below, you may notice something familiar... Can you spy it?... Where ever could it be?... Hmm...


Did you find it?... Okay. Well just in case you didn't, here's a tiny hint...



For the first time ev-ER, I'm IN PRINT!!! That's little ol' me in De Telegraaf which, according to Wikipedia (and it should know because it knows everything), is the largest newspaper in the Netherlands. The Dutch are a very discerning people.

Let me tell you. I'm a little pleased. You figured that out, eh? Was it obvious?...

I don't read Dutch but from what I'm told, one of the articles featured on the above page is about "selling your house with superstition". It seems that wind chimes can help sell a house when placed in the correct location; it's a Feng Shui thing I guess. Interesting. The article's writer, Berber Govaars, asked me if he could kindly use my Summer Time Chime in his article. I said yes and now I'm famous. It was very sudden I admit.

Anyway, this famous person has to do the dishes and mop the floor now. But I'll be back. You have a fine day!

  3. Holy cow, how fun and exciting! I don’t read ‘De Telegraaf’ but will ask one of my neighbours to safe a copy. The page is about the Open House day we have next Saturday for people who want to sell their houses. Their are all sorts of tips on how to show of your house best, like putting fresh flowers on the table, making fresh coffee (for the smell) so people feel at home. And even for non furnitured houses from people who already have moved to a new home, there is cardboard furniture developed that you can rent so the house doesn’t look empty.

    Next to your photo it says: ‘Don’t ask me why but the Chinese feng shui says that you should hang a wind chimes in the North-Western direction of your house when you want to sell it. That is the ‘network’ corner. Put your brochures (I guess from the real stage agent) there and you will definitely sell the house. I found this sample from the Canadian Michelemademe (!!!!). It’s on a very fun website called: michelemademe.com with a tutorial....
