Vroefke brought a dead mouse in, again, she (the mouse) is lying at my feet. Hooo, I hate this. The cat really thinks she makes me happy. She is looking so proud at me. I will bring the mouse outside and then go to bed. Vroefke does this almost every day, grrrrr! Poor mouse :-(
I discovered a shoe box in our small, but very full studio today and it was full of old stuff that I made about 14 years ago for doll houses. It it so small, I do not think I could do that again. I took a few to photograph.

This one is definitely a male, I will make him some trousers later on. The funny thing about my pussmans, is that they are all so different. I still like making them, and I love the 100% wool that I stuff them with. I like that smell so much.
This flower press I found in my studio, I made some of these years ago, (to sell in shops) Maybe I will use it again. Will have to buy some long screws.
Sometimes I think I want to buy a Vespa, but I love the old ones , and when you have one of those it's always broke I think.
I bought a few fish today to put in the pond. Because our fish are always hiding, Sometimes it helps when you put new fishes, to attract the shy fishes, to come out of there hiding places. In Autumn there will be some tidying up of the pond,(far to much plants now!) but we can't do that now. It would disturb all wildlife. I hope they will live a happy life here, anyway it is better than the shop (I think?) Except for that big bird who comes bye, ones in a while.

Yesterday morning I had to finish this drawing, I really had a hard time doing this, because our studio is becoming a real mess. I thought there even was a smell. So after I had finished the drawing I spend the whole afternoon cleaning the studio. This is very difficult for me because the other person, with who I'm sharing the studio, "My loving and caring partner:)"does not seem to have trouble with messy studio's. He seems to like it. I will post some pictures of the mess to get some advice. Maybe some encouraging words for him, how he has to proceed now. Thank you! I hope I will get a lot of comments on this issue because it really is a problem:(

This old bear, without eyes and all hiss limbs hanging loose, I bought at ebay. I have restored him as good as I could and now he looks stronger and more self secure. I wanted to resell him but i already like him too much I think. He can stay with me for a while.

A mother with 8 children came to visit us. She lives here for over a week now. She is very shy and hides under the plants when I try to get near to her. We like it a lot, that she stays here, because they eat a lot of "duck cress" That's how we call this in Flemish.
First flowers are showing, but the first year it will be a skinny border. Or how would you call this in English. Still I have a lot of satisfaction seeing the plants grow. I planted Nepeta (Kattenkruid)
and my cat tends to ruin this plant, she eats it,lies in it, sucks it...How do i stop her?
