Look who came to play....

......yes!!! Finally my visit with Mercedes actually happened!!! I know we have been talking about it for some time, but this wonderful lady actually came to visit. Firstly, I must say that I was thrilled to think that anyone would want to take the time, trouble and expense to visit me and my 'petite maison', so I thank her so much for that. We had a lovely day, lots of talking and laughing, we went out to lunch and then back to my house to make some miniature roses......with lots more talking....of course! Mercedes is a 'machine'....I use this word in the nicest possible way......she made 7 roses to my 3.....I wasn't really keeping score, but she can work fast (or perhaps I am just slow!!!)...... we also found out that we can talk and work at the same time...lol!
As you would all know by 'comments, emails and some have even had phone calls', that Mercedes is such a lovely, warm and friendly person and we had a fabulous day! Her husband Jonathon has promised to bring her back again......(possibly for a longer stay), which I must say I am holding him to this promise and I'm already looking forward to her next visit.
Thank you Mercedes, I had a fabulous day and I look forward to seeing your photos.....yes, she took lots!!

To quote the great Spongebob Squarepants 'I had the Best Day Ever'!!
Thank you so much Linda for a day I'll never forget...and for the extra 'sparkle' you've added to my world!
As for being a 'machine' - I just had to make the most of my childfree time...and your roses are perfection compared to mine.
I'll show the pictures as soon as I can - once Liberty leaves my side for long enough!

Jean Day said...

Hi Linda

I have a moment spare to say hello to everyone.. so hello! :)

That must have been a really cool day. With all that the French items you have there I always forget where you live.
As I always assume you live in Paris lol! Well that is until I remember.

It would be a dream to visit you and that wonderful dolls house wherever you were though.

Beautiful doll's house!!!
Have a lovely weekend
