It was a great weekend, though, and besides, I got lots of presents! Elga and Mary Lynne came on Saturday night and on Sunday morning, we three plus poor Josje , who had to get up an hour earlier to be here in time, got into my not-cleaned car and drove to Rheda.
The fair was great. It was also big, with 200 stands. I had not been at this venue, but I did like it, it was roomy, clean, there was enough room to park ( but that was, maybe, because on Sunday it appeared to be much more quiet than it had been on Saturday).
I gathered a lot of things, among which supplies, etc, won't bore you with those, but here goes:
I feel for this little baby in the bath by Ankinaki dolls .She is adorable !
I wanted to have some sanitary necessities, too , so bought ( from Hearth and Home) :
and a brass-leaf bath ( that PLUG !!! )
A kitchen sink
And from Stokesay ware I bought several ( more than I show here, am going to wait unpacking them until I have a nice dresser) canisters.they are as lovely as any of their things .
I also bought this doll kit from Helena Reijnen, since I need some guys for that ball in my Kendrew House ( not that anyboy can move there, any more, with those big dresses, but that is their problem)
Of course, this is the Emperor himself, but changing some colors will make the rank humbler, so quite useable.
In between we had a get together :
This morning Elga and I went to visit Josje and view her miniatures. Her collection is lovely and she makes such beautiful things !!!
And here the ladies are bent over Elga's beautifully made clock, Josje admiring Elga's handiwork. Elga is a quite gifted craftswoman and she gave me thiswonderful chair to be upholstered ( I am dreaming of the chair shown in Annelles book)
MaryLynne gave me some micro-presents :
a fun little French magnet
and from Rheda a little toadstool....
And Gabriëlle, another friend, made me this lovely babygoose. It is hard tp photograph , as he is hiding inside the basket....
OK it is a bit chaotic now, but so am I , so I am signing off !
