Back Home

I´m home again from a great show at Hugglets and a wonderful vacation in the UK.

After the show and a few days in London we went to Canterbury to stay for a week - to disscover the coast of Kent and surrounding.

We had such a great time.

this is me walking the White Cliffs of Dover.
We also got the chance to visit the secret tunnels used
during worldwar 2 built underneath the cliffs.
So very insteresting and highly recommended.

Canterbury Cathedral from the inside

and from the garden

I also got time for a bit shopping.
From the market on Portobello Road in London.

old lace - and a metal crown stamp (see picture above)

more old lace

and a beautiful pink dress with tulle and pearls.
I have NO idea when I´m going to wear it but it was sooooooo pretty.
I think it might look great with jeans - ha
So - now I´m trying to get my studio ready again after the mould attach.
It has been fixed during our vacation fortunately - phew.
and I´m really looking forward to start create - have lots of new ideas -
and a few new bears will be available soon too.
Have a lovely day.
