And this morning there was a beautiful suprise from Liberty, daughter of Mercedes:
A teatowel with the most lovely dogs and a card with drawing.
Mercedes send me some thin leather for suitecases and three wooden jars, I can use them in the Zaanse huisje.
And another drawing from Liberty, it is a little dog that is going for a walk with his lunchbox on his tail.

Thank you Mercedes and Liberty!!!
