A few weeks ago I was at a PTA meeting at my son's school when one of the parents gave me a little box. 'I heard you like dollshouses', she said, 'so I have made you something'. Needless to say I was very surprised, even more so when I heard she also has a dollshouse (and her house is only a few hundred feet away from mine...)

When I opened the box I found a few dozen beautifully made chocolate bonbons. Aren't they lovely? And perfect for a chocolate lover like me.

  20. Yes that was such a fun surprise! She joined the PTA over a year ago when she moved to our village, but we never talked about hobbies etc., just about things concerning the school.

    Jody, de schaal heb ik tijdens een workshop van Jens Torp gemaakt, mooi hè?

    Lize, the table is a chess table made by Chris Malcolmson. I bought it last year. Isn't it beautiful? I love the burr walnut with the marquetry inlay.

    Adrie, ja prachtig hè? Het is een schaaktafeltje gemaakt door Chris Malsomson. Ik zag het vorig jaar op de beurs en wist meteen dat ik die wilde hebben. Met dank aan jou en je klasgenoten, hahaha! Leuke foto trouwens op je profiel ;))))))
