No dollies today.

I'm still in pain.  The 'take a long rest, keep it warm, take a sauna and a massage and LOTS of pain relief-thing' doesn't help.  So I have to go back to the hospital to let them do more tests.  I can't believe I'm in so much pain because of a muscle inflammation only. 

I have lots of time to surf and as I'm getting a new cooker I thought the time was right to buy a stand mixer.  I'm a Kitchenaid girl so it was quite easy to choose a model and as I love bright colours I'm getting Raspberry Icecream.  Sounds yummy and looks pretty.
I'm also getting the meat grinder/mincer, the slicer/shredder, the fruit & vegetable strainer, the pasta roller set and the icecream bowl attachment.  
And to spice it all up a bit I ordered a fancy Peugeot pepper mill, the Paris black lacquered in 40 cm. :o 

So in the future I might also blog about 'food'. :)


Mouse, the White by Lidia Snul

On tuesday morning my husband brought me to the ER.  I had no sleep in a week because of the pain in my neck, shoulder and right arm.  I've obviously overdone with sewing and crocheting, I took several pain killers but the pain kept increasing and on tuesday morning I just couldn't take it anymore and broke down in tears.  As my doctor was not available my husband insisted we went to the ER.  After an MRI, an echo and an X-ray, they gave me some strong pain relievers and a muscle relaxant. I have to keep it all warm, have a rest and take the medicin.   I'm all wuzy from the pain killers.  I'm not permitted to drive, so I'm basicly glued to my couch and watch TV and surf on the internet.

To make things worse, my cooker gave up... we ordered a new one but we have to wait for about 10 days for it.  I'm used to cook diner every day, I often bake cakes or pan cakes, pies or cupcakes, lovely creme brulees... and so on... so you can imagine how I feel. 

But... on a positive note,  I treated myself with this:

She's Lidia Snul's creation; Mouse, the White (in resin) and it's obviously not my picture
I'm a little bit sad because she's available only through jpopdolls.net, in the US and clearly I will have to dig up an amount of money to pay for custom fees and import taxes.  I wish Lidia would have thought of her European fans. 
But I'm over the moon anyway :)



I did it again...

Guess who's coming to live with us...


Agnes & Marilla, the 21 Twins.

I made these to replace 2 sets of the october 2nd shop update, that were possible LIA.  This is the first time in 10 years of sending parcels to everywhere in the world, that something is missing.  The sets might still show up but to keep my highly appreciated and respected customers happy is rule number 1 in my book.  So I hope these will do. :)

Marilla and Agnes were happy to model the sets. I think. ;)



Dear Deer Helmet for a P-Girl. (For L&L)

Despite I'm in pain due to 'overdoing it' the last few days, I can't help it... I can not just sit there and do 'nothing'.  So... a certain little girl requested her own Dear Deer Helmet and I couldn't let her down, could I.




Recently I've bought a bunch of Puki wigs.  All trial and errors.  I think I bought 5 or 6 wigs to throw in the bin, and I'm not kidding.  I can't believe people keep selling wigs that are useless and there's no one complaining about it in the open.  Most of those bin-wigs I bought on the *Bay.  The pictures 'they' are using are cute, the wigs on de dolls look fine... but if you try them on YOUR doll, -that happens to be the same doll they are using in their auction pictures- it's a totally different thing. Plain crap, pardon my french. You might as well throw your money in the bin and save all the trouble.

On a more positive note... I've managed to buy 5 excellent, beautiful, cute little Puki wigs, secondhand from Flickr members. YAY!  Really good quality and pretty little wigs with an excellent fit, so I'm happy. But. Oh dear... here's a but.  I love my Pukis BALD in their little crochet hats or with a headband. I wrote it before... I'm crazy, I really am. But who could resist this cute little baldie. Right! No question mark.

Bug Hats Galore!

These Bug Hats will go on Etsy on sunday november 6th at 8pm CET.

All hats are the same, the same pattern, the same amount of tiny stitches, the same quality of cotton thread, they each have a tiny heart shaped button.

See second picture mosaïc, it's the same apple green hat in each shot:
you can pull it tighter over the ears, tie it in front, tie it in the back, manipulate the little antennas... and so on.  So... all different looks depending on how you use it.

One hat, so many different looks. 

Eh... okay Frankie, we all got it, thank you. :o

Bug Hat Caterpillar. ;-)


Sleeping Chocolat Beauty.

Look what Santa brought! 
 (I always call our postman Santa, unless he stuffs up my mailbox with bills.  You don't want to know what I call him then)

I absolutely love this little one.  I noticed Piki is the unpopular one, but she's the one I like the most, second choice has to be Lily.

 Here's BonBon!
