tuesday musings



introducing
my new softie
from one
of my
most favorite
artists,
lizette...
she is just amazing
and i can't
get enough of
her creations...
and look

her children
even
decorated
the box for me!
i have to save it...
maybe
i will frame
my favorite bits.

many thanks
lizette, enzo, and sophia!

lizette
custom made
a christmas
present
for a
special someone.
i will show you
post christmas.

in the past
2 weeks,
i have given away
tons of
vintage pottery,
pyrex, etc.
so i allowed
myself
to purchase
this beautiful piece

by
karin eriksson.
it was so beautiful
i splurged.
i love the
inside detail


tomorrow
morning
grub and i
are
off to seattle.
most of our family
doesn't have
power yet...
so it should
be an interesting
holiday!
keep your
fingers crossed
that we have
power
by christmas!

more from seattle-
land of
a fast, free
internet cafe
connection
to enjoy
with a great
cup of espresso.
woohoo!

i think the link to karin ericsson is not working right, it links to your give-away-how-to-page.

2-Grin Robot is in good hands. The kids drew pictures of bugs buildings and houses on your package. I stood at the post office tracing them with a black marker and almost missed getting inside it because I was having so much fun following the kids' drawings and how free and detailed they were :)

I'm not really into dolls---but that softie ROCKS! Especially the wee crabby hands. Hi to the various Shlichti. Your first meeting with nephew, yes?
