" We'll be Friend's Forever won't we Pooh? asked Piglet
Even longer, ' Pooh answered - A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
|I love this! I have just the house to put it in when I get the Arthur doll's house finished. |
I shall leave you in suspense for awhile but the kit is Perfect for that future build.
Fats also gave me something special...
|She wrapped it up, and when I opened the box inside was an assortment of memorabilia of Green Dolphin Street! Movie poster, record covers with mini albums inside and movie stills from the movie.|
All Green Dolphin!
|There are books and book jackets of Green Dolphin Street!|
WHO KNEW THAT THERE WAS SO MUCH VARIETY!!!?
I used one of the wonderful little books and placed it in the Parlor on the sideboard.
It is right at home there,
But there was MORE in the box that I almost missed until Janine pointed it out.
|Fats made me a Scrapbook!|
Look at that cover!
And inside there was.....
Green Dolphin Street clippings
and photos and sheet music from the movie score, and book jackets
|Fats even downloaded photos of my doll's house from my blog and made them into mini photos and included them in the pages!!!|
the 2 on the right are of the bedroom; bed (before bedcurtains) and the fireplace mantle
|Dried flower pressed between the pages|
|movie stills and more of the movie score|
|this photo on the right, has my Parlor form the very first set up!|
|And this one has the fireplace and The DOOR|
|A vintage book jacket died flowers and the theme music from the movie|
|What a Wonderful Gift! |
What I find so Amazing is how she finds the time to do all of the research and make this in between all of the 10,000 other things she is constantly involved in. To see the Paris Scrapbook that she made for Janine just go to MINWORKS blog. Janine has had Bruce take some really professional photos of hers and She Loves It!!!
BUT THAT IS NOT ALL
Last week it was my birthday and as Jane Smith of Minifanaticus says
I'm 29 again!
This time We 3 celebrated it at Fatima's house where we enjoyed a lovely lunch made by Fats and a Scrumptious dessert of homemade Lemon Cheesecake
(my favorite dessert)
made by Janine
THANK YOU LADIES!
Janine gave me a gift card which I have used on a non-mini present for myself
(my favorite perfume)
and Fats gave me this...
|No NOT Lana Turner from Green Dolphin Street, but do you see what Lana Turner is wearing?|
|This is the actual REAL LIFE dressing gown that Lana Turner wore in the movie|
|And this is what Fats made!|
a miniature copy of the real life gown from the movie
Happy Birthday to ME!!!!
|And she made some matching slippers too!|
|The collar is hand embroidered and beadwork is added just like the real McCoy|
|And lets not forget the buttons that go down the front!|
|The fabric that she used drapes Beautifully and flows and puddles onto the floor with no effort at all|
and I can even hang it on a hanger because of the way that she has made the yoke.
|The slippers have real wooden heels and the tops are decorated with lace and beadwork|
