Last friday we got home from a wonderful holiday in France.
We went to Paris....
to the Dordogne.....
and the Loire Valley....
I didn't find very many miniatures this year,
but I didn't came home empty handed
The painting and shopping cart are E-beertje's souvenir's...
I'm sure he will tell about them himself!
The 2 little owls on the piece of agate were my birthday gifts from my kids!
I bought another Venus of Willendorf (already have one from Germany).
The dragon came from a castle and the Egyptian statue came with the first episode of a series,
bought in the supermarket for only 1 euro!!!!!
Close-up of owls and Venus.
When I got home there was a big pile of mail waiting!!!
Lots of birthdaycards and presents
My friend Kootje made me the beautiful embroidered pillow with lavender.
And my friend Jolande brought me a souvenir from Riga,
a beautiful book for my sorceress to put all her spells in!!!
Thank you ladies!!!
There was also a package waiting for me...
It came from Nicky...the one that makes those beautiful little dragons!!
Just look how she spoiled me for my birthday!!!
A little box with fairy wings (love the little toadstool on top!!!)
and a wonderful fly agaric (my favorite toadstool).
Just before I went on holiday she showed this little dragon on facebook and I loved him!!
But I didn't buy him.....
I wanted to save some money for souvenirs
So it was a wonderful surprise to find Pickle as a birthdaygift when I got home
Thank you so much Nicky!!!
