Holiday to Holland - Part 4 - With Sylvia

Sunday, right after the show, Dimphy and I went to Sylvia.
There was a lot of traffic on the road, which surprised me for a Sunday night!
So I was completely burnt down when we arrived.
Luckily we were warmly welcomed by Sylvia in her cozy home.

(click on the pictures to enlarge) 

We had a great dinner together and after that we exchanged some gifts.

Sylvia gave me this wonderful cabinet. 
And the unique vintage cooking pan, 
the beautiful crocheted tiny cushion (in my favorite color 
and the amazing bird cage was handmade by Sylvia for me.

Look closer, there's even a real swing in it... 

And of course we had a look at her wonderful work, 
after unpacking all these beautyful gifts. 

The first thing I saw, right away when I arrived, was this impressive room ...
Dead tired as I was, I put my bag under a small table 
and when I stood up there was this room on top of it.
I looked straight into the softly luminous scene... 
and I felt instantly happy! 

Here you see it in daylight ...

And this is Sylvia's French House ...

I especially love the hobby room with all the miniature dollhouses!

Dimphy had a good time at the beach house, 
where Sylvia won the third prize with in a competition 
at the Dollhouse Emporium in 2009...

I was so impressed with all of her work that I forgot 
to take pictures of all of it lol,
But you can see all her work on Sylvia her blog
She also has much better pictures of her work than I made! 

I really wanted to make something together with Sylvia 
and we chose to build a loft bed for Dimphy. 
Sylvia has really done all the work. 
And I learned sooooo much by looking at how she worked 
and what materials she used...
(and by annoying her to ask too many questions 
while she was brainstorming  lol). 

The result is really amazing!!

Dimphy is also very happy with it as you can see ...

I will finish it once the bedroom of Dimphy is so far done 
(so that will take some time lol)

Sylvia, you're a darling!!! 
And again I want to thank you so very much for your hospitality, 
your wisdom and all your help 
that I desperately needed at that time 
And of course for all the beautiful gifts 
You're a very dear friend!! 
Next time I will tell you about our visit at Margriet!
But as you all know I am still very busy
decluttering and reorganizing my own house...
(I will share some picitures with you later) 
I do miss you all, and the miniatures....
but I will be back for sure!!

To be continued...

Hugs Jollie and Dimphy
