Ever notice how time flies when you're having fun? I've just taken two of my grandkids home after having them with me for the past 2 weeks. It seems like only yesterday that they arrived!
I will truly miss them. I just feel bad because the weather has been so rainy while they were here...but it didn't stop them from swimming in the lake & having to be forced out when their lips & fingernails turned blue. I didn't even mind too terribly when all the cookies that we baked seemed to melt into thin air...right before and after meals.
There's been a remarkable change in my 16 year old grandson Chris since I last saw him at Easter. He seems so much more mature & is showing quite the sense of humor. As for Jade, I see a lot of my characteristics in her....for better or worse! LOL. She is nine going on 12.
The house seems much too quiet and I miss them already. So when several packages arrived for me in the mail, it did much to cheer me up.
From the the dollshouse forum that I belong to I received a tiny bear and an award:
From my friend, Chelle in England: isn't that just the cutest packing case.... and English jam tarts & tea. What could be better!
From Dana of MsatMiniDoll a master tutorial CD containing Vol I & II & the full wigging tutorial. Now all I need are the character dolls that I ordered.
From Julia Cissell's Etsy store entitled godsflyingflowers, a 1:12 sized monarch butterfly. It's so incredibly tiny .....and made of clay!
Two candelabras from eBay. Can't you just see white dripping candles with skull bases in them....for Halloween.:
And last but not least, some books that I won from Cate & David of Solet Luna. Thank you Cate. They're darling! I will now be able to translate any Runes I come across: Thank you so much, everyone. What a great pick me up!!
