Just a few pictures

We are having a great time. The only thing I would like different is the weather :-(

1 week on the road

We have been driving through the US for the last week now. What a big country is this!!! I'll never get used to the space and emptiness here. We have seen Walnut Grove and DeSmet. The homes of the Ingallsfamily. It's been great to walk around in the same towns where laura used to live. Lot has changed but with a bit of imagination you can see how it must have looked like in those days.
The weather is not so good but that is not stopping us from having a great time here!!!

This are some of Laurs's things

The fireplace that was used in the series 'little house on the prairie'

The prairie how it looks like today

The graves of the family Ingalls in DeSmet

That's it for now. The internet is terribly slow!!!

USA here we come!!!

Tomorrow we'll be on our way to America for a vacation!!! We'll be visiting the north and will see a lot of beautiful places :-)
We'll absolutely visit Walnut Grove and De Smet because of the family Ingalls and Laura especially!!! I've always enjoyed her stories in books and on the tv and now I have the chance to see it for myself. Can't wait ;-).
We will also see the badlands and Yellow Stone. So I'l be in the big world for a while instead of the mini-world LOL.
When there's a chance I'll put some photo's on my blog.
For now here's a little roombox I made as a souvenir of our last vacation in the midwest. The mini's are bought somewhere along the route and the photo's are made in Arches NP. The rest is made by me. This roombox always takes me back to that vacation.

Sweets from Japan

A while ago a friend of my oldest daughter went to Japan. When she came back home she brought me a mini-gift. Isn't that sweet!?!
The little cookies and pie-pieces fit perfect on the bowls that Jollie has sent me.
This will be a nice treat for the customers of the vintageshop.

A present from Jollie

Today I received these beautiful mini's from Jollie. I'm really spoiled!! Thank you Jollie :-)

Last week I've been busy with a flowerkit of Pascal Garnier. These make the most beautiful daffodils!!! Just look at them.....I love them. A lot of work but so worth it.
