Being sick two weeks before chtistmas

Every year I look forward so for the opportunity on our decoration spree- Christmas!
 Its the highlight of the whole year. And just now- I fell sick with severe bronchitis.
No more decorations with the kids, no cookies backing or party planning....
I tried to do my best by remote control. And the kids- they were so grateful! It is just a joy that not only the present class ( 6th grade ) cared but the 7th ( even the boys) and 9th as well. They wrote greetings, sent decorations and cookies they made at school.
Happiness is in the small details- And so I send you all the best for the new year.

Chanuka- last days of....

Chanuka is the Jewish holiday more or less at the same time as Chistmass. Its a holiday I love. Its happy and one can truely say "happy Chanuka"So I choose happy colors, made some doughnuts, invited my miniature Liat to join and we watched the "Comedia del Arte" I found in
Covent Garden.
I had my singing birds join in and both "Hamsa" on the wall should bring us internal luck

saved from the garbage

I adore this one above all!
The rest are a bit to small .....and not my type really. But had to be saved . 
By the way - if it wasn't for Liat my friend and teacher who gave it to me as a gift for Chanuka- i woulodn't be able to show this.
the little Raggedy Andy was bought in Covent Garden 
You might wander what takes me so long to show new stuff here- this time its a prolonged cold- with a temperature running up and down....

London Re-visited

I spent a wonderful 5 days in London. After not being here 10 years the place certainly improved. I had so many plans but time was too short…. I also expected to see more minis ‘ this didn’t work out because it was very difficult to find. I bought a few things I found at Paperchase, in Covent Garden market and this was more or less it.
Hamleys was so disappointing…..they only had Lundby Smaland and all the furniture and accessories seemed so shabby and are so costly… what do you find in it , people?
I visited some beautiful exhibitions: The Gauguin retrospective at the Tate Modern, the Art treasures from Budapest at the Royal Academy  and a wonderful show- Affordable art  in the middle of Battersea park here are some impressions:
 At my hotel-some hotel I can tell you.....
At Tha affordable art show- you can see  that shoes are one of my weaknesses.....

I loved this piece of art, it reminded me of my mini world.

Papiermachee house

This green house was made late last year.Its a semi cupboard ( 90x43x24 cm) its far from being modern on the outside, but hey- look on the inside! 
I gathered all my ethnic characters and my miniature china which I love but  is too big for a dollhouse. 
some details:
The background is "Made by Joel" cute paper city.look up his great site :
Further wall hanging :
the mirror is a small version of bigger Papier Machee  done with seashells and various beads.
Seats are German vintage restored by me and the turquoise occasional chair is Petite Princess.

can someone explain to me how to put more than one photo in one line?
