for Jennie


Monday evening the husband returned home with a bag stuffed with tiny furniture and bits and bobs, all for the Project! My friend Jennie who volunteers in the Geefwinkel had been saving them for me, or should I say, for the Project's inhabitants......I was thrilled,  you can imagine how they felt; as it all arrived here on the Monday evening and the hour was late, and then having to work in the office Tuesday and Wednesday, they all had to wait till today for me to move the stuff over to their place; they could of course have done it themselves....so I tolerated no complaints about the delay. It did mean they could decide amongst themselves what was to go where, who could have what and so forth, maybe even get some cleaning done. All that was required of me was my muscle power!







shelves in the library: where else? the leather bound books ended up there as well, as did the typewriter  plus phone; I have no idea if they do indeed have a phone number, but that doesn't seem to bother them and so I will ring them from time to time as requested - although no one till now has given me a number to ring  - 'text us' they cry, we're modern too you know, whatever. I am also happy to see the arrival of a saw, this means they can take care of their wood supply themselves from now on, careful though little 'un. Oh, I almost forgot to mention the silver chandelier, adds a touch of class to the entourage.






we moved the bird's nest from the newly decorated top bedroom to BirdBoy's shelf, he's very happy, as are Beetle and jumpy toad

The OldBirdKing quite fancies this object, no body knows what it is, art maybe? Anyway, he likes it and that makes us all happy for him

these three are always hungry, although I do see some might manage to eat more than others

a tiny woven basket!

the top shelf under the garden roof has been transformed into a proper bedroom

the new dog has taken the largest bed - very much like Django who sneaks onto the couch in the living-room when we're off to bed; he jumps off hastily in the mornings, looking at you with big innocent eyes (if I'm very quiet I can catch him......)


linen cupboard


they look like they're no stranger to mischief 

a very useful whisk & coffee grinder


attention!
wonder when they'll actually get round to cleaning........

there's even a ping-pong table, no bats but I'm sure they'll come up with something; on the table by the way is a new arrival, a brave and curious hedgehog, obviously not afraid of heights nor shears....

thanks Jen!

How delightful, I have a miniature linen cupboard with a very similar design to the blue furniture, full of small bolts of fabric.
