The boys....

It hardly seemed fair to show pictures of my beautiful granddaughter Sienna and exclude the boys! Pictured here are my three grandsons: 9 month old twins boys Ares and Dante and two year-old Jacques aka "Lovebug". Everyone says that twins skip a generation but that is not so true in our family. I have twin brothers, identical twin sons and now beautiful identical twin grandsons! My aunt had the only twin girls in the family. So four sets of twins! My brothers and my cousin are fraternal tiwns and my sons and grandson are identical. Grandchildren are the closest we will ever get to heaven on earth. They hold my whole heart in their sticky little fingers.

Sienna's first dollhouse

We spent the loveliest Easter in sunny, warm Kelowna visiting our son and daughter-in-law and our beautiful little grandbaby Sienna who is two. Here is a picture of her with her first dollhouse and she loved it! What a wonderful weekend!

Hearth and Home Miniatures

I received my lovely bathroom suite from Hearth and Home Miniatures along with two beautiful Georgian lit fireplaces. Unfortunately the bulbs for the fires were left behind but they are now on their way to my little dollhouse. I was given a choice of picking any color I wanted from the Farrow and Ball paint catalogue for the bath. I chose "London Stone No.6" Richard from Hearth and Home later phoned me and told me that they liked the color so much they painted another bath the same and it sold at Birmingham immediately and they took orders for three more the same. That was a little bit of a thrill for me.
