We're back home again from a
wonderful vacation in the Dordogne, France.
We had beautiful weather..
more then 3 weeks of sunshine
and temperatures between 30 and 40 ºC
(86 and 104 ºF)
We spend a lot of time at and in the river the Dordogne,
that was flowing directly next to the campsite.
When I wasn't in the water,
I sat in the shade and embroidered...
The carpet isn't finished yet,
I still have to fill in the middle part around the dragons.
I found some lovely souvenirs...
The 2 stones on the right are from the river.
The brown one sparkles and the black one is soooo smooth!!
I celebrated my birthday in France.
My kids Jasper and Jasmijn "made" the birthday "cake"
The candle played a very irritating version of Happy Birthday
Jasmijn gave me the little owl on the book
and Jasper gave me the little owl in the egg.
When I got home yesterday,
I found some more presents
Jollie send me a miniature dutch magazine
that has the same name as I do
and a sweet little owl charm.
And Ineke made me a half scale shawl!
Dalia loves her new shawl!
The paper napkin she is standing on
was send to me by Jollie too!
Thank you so much ladies
And not a dollshouse miniature,
but small enough.....
My mom gave me this cute little Chestnut-fairy.
And now real life starts again
I hope that means I will start making miniatures again too...
it does feel like I'm in the mood again
