Present from Clari

Last week I found a present from Clari
in our mailbox.
She wrote that it was a gift because I manage
Kladblog so well (blushing)
4 beautifull skulls!
I will use them in Griezelsteyn or in one
of my new projects.
Clari thank you so much for this wonderful surprise.

Buddy and Prinses

Before our holiday, Nella made
new dolls and I had to buy this lovely little boy.
Buddy is his name.
He arrived last week and traveled together
with a frog. (I didn't had a frog in
the collection of Nella creations.
The frog told me her name was Prinses
(Dutch for Princess), because there is a
Frog King, a Frog Prince and she is the
Frog Princess...who am I to argue about that.

Souvenirs from the Baltic Sea Tour

We are back from our trip around the Baltic Sea.
It was not long enough so we added the part with the red line :-)
I saw a lot of miniatures
but I only bought things I can use in projects.

For a vignette I bought something in every capital city.
From left to right: Warsaw - Vilnius - Riga - Tallinn - Helsinki and Stockholm.

I love trolls and I couldn't resist those.

This is not really a miniature, but I liked this blue fingerdoll from Riga
so much that I bought it.
It's hanging on my bulletin board.

In a toy store in Stockholm, I saw these Ogress for a very reduced price.
I thought that Mistral would like a mounted ogre :-), so I bought them.
The one on the left (2.5 cm) is now in the Cabinet.

All those things I bought for Griezelsteyn.

Beads to make orrery's and wings to make angels.

Miniatures for different projects.

And animals.
Panda's for my panda vignette.
Owls for the Owlery (it's on my list of projects I am going to make)
And two black cats for the Dutchess of Cats Hill
