I found 3 owls at a flea marketThe one in the middle is for Mistral.
She sits in his astronomy room and he called her Noctua
(after a very old constellation)
The other 2 are for the Owlery from the Harry Potter books
(it is on my list of projects I want to make).

When the rain stopped, I quickly walked to the mailbox to see if Kantrina (kant = lace) already arrived. The post was very quick this time, because she was there.
Quickly I took her out of the bag and the tissue and after the long journey, she needed a snack.
The tissue was very handy, because we don't want her lovely lace skirt to get dirty.

Dear Nella, Kantrina is beautiful and so original, I'm very happy with her, thank you much for this wonderful present!

Little Witch

Look what a nice surprise I found in our Mailbox
(Blogger rotated the pictures...)
Petra is in Spain at this moment and there she
bought this little witch for me.
She is only 2 cm and made on my
birthstone. She will look wonderful in Griezelsteyn.

Petra thank you so much for this unexpected,
lovely present!

When Nella announced a June Sale I could not resist buying 3 dolls.
I have a weak spot for her dolls with a tail on their head.

I named them Ivy, Rose and Honey
after the colors on their dresses.
