My beautiful children
My blog wouldn't be complete without a photo of my beautiful children. They have achieved so much, both have PhD's, and professionally they are achieving wonderful things. My darling daughter, loves her boyfriend Andrew, her two ragdoll cats - kiki and suki, clothes designed by Dogstar and jewellery especially from Tiffanys. My darling son lives in New York and works on Wall Street. I am waiting for him to get his Armani suit. He loves all things NY, skateboarding and going out for a good time with his many friends. They are the most wonderful people - intelligent, fun to be with, ambitious but with a sense of compassion. I am very proud of them. Love you heaps....Mum

German Half Doll
This little half doll was my first ebay buy. I got her with 5 seconds to spare. I knew I had to have her when I saw her. She is 7cms tall, circa 1930, made in Germany and has the number 5936 around the base. She is so lovely and delicate. The description of her said that she had come from an estate sale and I imagine what a life she must have had - very genteel and refined or living a secret life as a flapper, sneaking out at night to go to nightclubs, drinking martinis and meeting dangerous men. She actually came from a Brisbane antique dealer so she didn't have far to travel. I hope she will be happy in her new home.
