Dani ( her blog is http://theweirdworldofdani.web-log.nl/mijn_weblog/ ) drew and painted me the most incredible painting for Christmas. I love it so much- I have decided to hang it in my bedroom right over my bedside table so that I see it every single morning. Isn't it wonderful??
Here's a picture for Dani of it hanging in my bedroom- please pretend we finished painting the drywall :) It is going to look so striking when we finish painting the wall blue!!
Dani also made a special trip to a dollhouse store to shop for Bernard and me! I think this was her first time mini shopping ever :) Here are the goodies she sent to us- I am so excited I can hardly wait for time for mini play! There is a miniatures magazine from The Netherlands that I forgot in the picture-so many fantastic projects- but all in Dutch :) This is a good way for me to keep learning Dutch! I love the magazine Dani! There is a little monopoly board game ( I think that will go in Bernard's craft room eventually- when I build it!), a pair of Dutch shoes (these remind me of a pair my grandma had when I was little- I used to put them on and walk around in them until I grew too big for them! ), a little lantern that Bernard has claimed for his house- not sure exactly where we will put it yet- but it is so cute- and a little ladder that actually folds! I will be using this in Bernard's craft room also because he will have floor to ceiling bookcases of craft supplies and he will need the ladder to get to the top shelves! The best item of all was a new friend for Bernard!!!! We have named him Lester:) Bernard and Lester are taking the time to get to know each other.
Of course, now I am thinking Lester needs a home. I have been eyeing the bus kit on miniatures.com This is their picture- I believe the kit is made by Greenleaf. Wouldn't this make the greatest home for Lester???
