I have been refurbishing one of my dolls houses and I got a visit from this cute little inspector. She said that everything looked OK.

I have been crocheting a lot lately (so much that my neck and shoulders hurt!). Here is an example of what I have made: a spiral rug with tassels. Making the tassels was the most fun part!

Irmeli and I were shopping in Helsinki yesterday. We made a round in the craft stores and we first went to Hobby Point, where I bought a new paper punch for making miniature flowers. Then we visited Askarelli, where we were delighted to find out that they now sell some Gepetto products. I bought myself a rocking horse kit. And then we went to Sinelli, where I found some nice sheets of double-sided cardboard.
We were also happy to visit the new Marks and Spencer store, which opened in Helsinki last month, for the first time. I often buy from M&S online, but it will be nice to be able to shop in the store whenever I am visiting Helsinki.

As I have recently bought lots of new metal beads and findings, I now began to use them for making some new silverware for my dollshouse. It is quite fun to spread all kinds of bits and pieces on the table and to start to think and try which of them fit nicely together. Here is some of my new silverware on display in the Erlenhof dining room.
