I don't know Evi- but I LOVE her house. I'd love to take a little reading break in the chair with the footstool.

I've got to go back and look at your pictures again- so many great ideas.

I love those shabby cake pedestals.

And what a great idea, to have photographs laying in a bowl to browse through.

The pig cutting board reminds me of one that my mother used to have. My dad made it for her.

Oh Laura,
No wonder you love going round to Evi's home. It's chocablock full of wonderful things and brilliant ideas. I love it all, the photo's in the bowl, the hatbox, the book's, the doll's , the bird's, that lovely chest with the little drawers, I think that it's a specimen cabinet,the things hanging from the mirror, the cushions but, most of all, I'd love to lay in that chair with my feet up and just drink it all in. You are all so creative. XXXX

Oh Laura,
you have certainly captured our wonderful time spend together!!!!!!!! Thank you for your kind words and for just being you! I treasure all of you, my friends, sharing thoughts and ideas, laughing together, complaining when needed and just being there for each other. I am still on cloud nine( or as my sister-in-law in Germany said today -cloud 7 there!)
We will get together soon again, can't wait!
I better get busy making dolls now.
Thank you again for everything,
XOXOX,Evi

To view your photos is such a delight to the eye and mind! You have such lovely treasures. Will you be opening an online shop when you "retire" from the corporate world? That's what I did...loving every moment, too!
