Back from Arnhem

Now this was a BUSY day.

I went to Arnhem and talked to a LOT of people and bought home all kinds of goodies. I did not photograph all kits; I bought two microkits from Petite Properties ( hope to be able to show off the small thingies once I have  abit of time to make them up).

I did meet with Linda, of Milton Miniatures:

Brought home several kits to make them up and I promised to translate the instructions.

I akslso bought several battery-operated lamps from The Little Dolls House Company ( Canada) and gleefully lit up my kitchen in the Kendrew, where I could not hang any lamp till now, since there was no accessible wiring, unless you count the hearth.

Went along to Victoria Fasken , where I bought two loverly urns

( those blue things on the mantle):

Bought a little pullmouse for the critter house from Shirley Scheibehenne:

went To Karon  Cunningham and bought a beautiful rack of copper pots ( by Lara Copper from Oz)

                                     Here they are in place in the other kitchen ( in the corner):

                                           And a little porcelain bird (by Victoria Guerbos, no website, sorry) with flowers.
                                              NB: you see centimeters here, not inches!

                                                    Which found  a place in the hall

                                                 And  a couple I could not resist :

                                                             THE KISS!!!

                  Went along to Jens Torp and bought a wonderful honeypot and breadbasket for my teashop

PHEW. So that is it for now!!! ( well, actually, there are more things, but will talk about those later on)

( Well, while I was typing this post, litle Tifany threw the Mouse House over. Fortunately there is no big damage done, only mr Skunk seems to have lost his bottle and little baby has lost a spider, but I think I have got some spare). Otherwise the family is OK, I am happy to say)

Still busy attacking the house, I am afraid!

Here she is again, sitting in front of the palatial mansion. And yes, she wants to climb it and yes, she wants to get inside. Since the front door is still wide enough to let her in,I must make a barricade asap!!

But, not having got that far today, she decided to make do with my big bag ( purse for our US public)

busy beastie

Attacking the  rattan chair ( where Floris stopped the good work...)

attacking the laundry, surprising Jojo with her dedication to the task...

And finally going to sleep in the windowsill, a lovely warm place to be-with a view!

Tiffany playing

She loves teasing the other cats and Fluffy, for one is highly intrigued!

She also listens best to Fluffy- the moment he calls her, she will be coming along, hopping after his tail. He also rescued her recently- she had accidentally been imprisoned underneath the kitchen cabinets by my cleaning lady. For an hour I was searching - then called for Fluffy. He did some searching, called here and there and then stopped in the kitchen, right in front of where she was sitting. Clever Fluffy! So I let her out and I was very happy about my sweet b/w brat.
But they DO tease each other all the time :-) And even Jojo, who has never taken to other cats, seems to like her.. I think my devious plan to brighten the days of my older cats is working out right now.

Happily purring lapkitty

Today she landed in my lap ! Baby is happily dancing around the house. This morning Fluffy was lying in my lap- they are becoming friends as far as I can see. Fluffy was purring loudly , she came along and thought visibly "I can do that"- so she jumped next to me on the sofa, started purring , then Fluffy jumped off and she took his place in my lap.

Usually she is rather busy, and I am doing household chores, but when I finally sat down this evening, she came along again and did the same thing, a lot longer this time.I think the shelter did  a great job since she is so happy after just a week in here.

Now she is asleep on the back of the sofa....

ASLEEP I said!


Tiffany getting around

Although Tiffany was very shy and hissing and cussing yesterday when one of the other cats approached her ( the other critters are curious), she was in a happier mood today, kindly rolling over on her back when Fluffy came over to talk to her and making ouvertures both to him and  even (gasp) me. She even went as far as rubbing her nose against my hand for some seconds :-)

Here are Tiffany and Fluffy

Fluffy is really intrigued by the little lady !

(Oh dear, I spoke too soon- I hear some growling in the kitchen...but that will be Jojo,I am afraid.)

My new furbaby!

May I introduce to you : ( drum roll):

My new furbaby, taken from a nearby shelter last Tuesday. Her name was Spirou, but somehow I could not quite wrap my brain and tongue around it, so I have renamed her :

It is not quite a good picture, I am afraid, but although since yesterday she is dancing around in the living room (she was hiding in one of the bedrooms during the first three days) she has not a second to spare to sit and pose for  a photo. It does not quite show up yet, but at the shelter she was a swooning lovely little lady, so I fully expect her to become  a lapkitty,too.When she has got time, that is!

Here are some better pics that I took tonight ( I am trying to get her in my neighbourhood; her conversation consists of hissing right now, though :-)

She IS a beauty, though !!!
