Go! little Papillon! Go spread your wings and go find the key that will unlock the door behind which is hiding a little story...
Keep on dreaming...
Keep on dreaming...
My mind has been floating very high lately. Just like Peter Pan, I wanted to cling to
happy thoughts to be able to fly.I wished I could grab this balloon and go very far.
I wished it really hard.Then some words came to my mind like Pommes d'Amour and Fairy Floss...
And guess what? You will also have a little surprise with it!
If you haven't got a clue because you are new here, just have a look at what I've been creating lately...I have found a way to put dreams in a box...
Can't show you...it is a surprise... unless you insist I might show you but...another day!he!he!Today I will keep it as a mystery.
Ready? Live a message with a link to your blog so I can contact you.OK?
THE PRIZE IS THE HOT AIR BALLOoN AND THE SURPRISE
The winner will be revealed on the 15th February 2010.

Elle est pas belle la vie?
It seems that some of you cannot watch the video so have no idea of what the first prize is:
(photo from the Puppet Barge )I've been busy like a little bee this week and that's how every week should be.
This is just a slideshow I've made recently with the little theatres .You've already seen them but this is our interlude between our French week post and my OWOH giveaway.
One is in the dolls' bedroom, one has been offered to the lovely lady who's adopted our little Princess & the Pea on Etsy , one is on its way to someone who likes mushrooms and the last one is in the boutique . I just cannot wait to make more. It just fills me with joy to create and I feel like spreading sparkles of happiness all around the world.
(I recommend to pause the music in the sidebar before playing this...unless you want to keep the music from the sidebar...then pause the music from the video. The effect is cute. Or, try this experiment:try both and see which music you prefer. OR...try to play both musics at the SAME TIME and see how long you can stand it!)
There is a clue about what my giveawy will be in this slideshow.
No...not theatre...something else...
(Reminder: our French post is still growing if you have noticed! and some of you are still preparing something. Now we also have Norway and New Zealand.)
I love Blogland!
Oh my God! 100 followers already!
The 100th person to have landed on my little daydreamer planet is ARTYCHO. She is French and just like me lives in England.She makes wonderful things and once again, her blog is worth stopping by!It is written both in French and in English.
Speaking of France...I was wondering... it would be nice if each of you ,if you are happy to do so, could prepare a little something to show us what France is to you.If you want to make a picture or just leave a comment that I could post here, or something French in your mini house or...I don't know...anything!
What is France to you?
Just let me know here on this post that you've done something on your blog and I will post it here with a link to your blog.
It would be a nice tribute to Artycho and I who are no longer living in our country.
Meanwhile let's meditate , think, concentrate and meet here once we are ready...
Let tHe paRty bEgiN!

"being made to stand at the airport in Paris on our way to England when I was one because my mum had too many bags to carry (only trip to France as a child and this one I don't remember), two wonderful visits to Paris as a adult (including looking in a doll shop), French motorways whilst travelling to Germany (and St Malo) and enjoying the delicious food on the way and the smoothness of the road surface compared to British motorways, a lovely afternoon on the beach near Calais with my family, a glorious 10 days caravanning at St Malo, 1 night at Dijon... one day soon we will return to enjoy France again." Dollmum
"For me France is sophisticated, glamorous, full of colors and tastes wonderful.I was lucky enough to spend my honeymoon in Paris, and I have returned a couple of times with my children to visit Eurodisney and enjoy its magic."Tink- Sonia
(I chose to illustrate Jojo Cramel's vision of France)

"I love France and this is why: Perfection, romance, style, and history. I love the fashion in clothes and the interior style, the small cafes, the food, the country side, the buildings, and Paris. I would like to know more about the hidden treasures that only a "frenchie" would know about." Christel Jensen ( who's just come back from Paris and has lots and lots of beautiful pics from her last trip on her blog)
Mercedès has prepared a beautiful post about France on her blog.I just couldn't decide which picture to choose!On the photo below what you see are delightful miniatures!
I won't show you what I've sent her.It is a surprise.It is something that was precious to my heart but I sent it to someone special so no regret...
I have also finished a little doll for a very special little girl called Liberty. Who doesn't know Liberty? A lovely happy little blond girl who's mother Mercedes makes the most delicate
miniatures. OF COURSE you know who I am talking about!

The doll is still home at the moment because the ladies in red of the house wanted to prepare a little farewell party.Strawberry Shortcake was in charge of the cakes so no suprise: strawberry cakes for everybody!
Her name is Ruby.Red is her favourite colour.
The picture below was taken after one of the ladies in red offered her a lovely red ribbon to put around her little neck.She was extremely proud to have this picture taken.
