A cardboard box arrived from Denmark today and in it was……
…. my crofthouse, Thordale, beautifully made by Jogalong & Pogwash (multimedia art)
Complete with my beloved sheeps and Land Rover.
I love it. I have cleared (and even cleaned, because that is how much I adore it) the shelf below the window where I sit and write on my laptop. This house has pride of place.
What a lovely present from my friend, Barbara of Lille Rosendal and Riccarton DK Shetlandspony Stutteri. She is the artist who made it – a very talented lady.
Look at the fencing? I wish we had fencing as nice as this. The bird table and the seat are perfect. The only artistic licence is the two stable doors (front door and back door). I have always wanted stable doors but my OH has always said no! My Theory: maybe if OH sees how nice they look on this house, then perhaps I could have them in real life on my house (if you catch my drift).
This house is so nice I could almost live there. Oh yes, but I do!
Thank you, Barbara, for making me go round for the whole of today with a huge smile on my face. Every time I look up from my desk and see my house, I grin all over again!
It is perfect.
What a wonderful present. My perfect little crofthouse.
