Verhaaltje voor het slapen gaan.

Bedtime story for  little Tom who is still wide awake after a day of playing. Tommie was made by Angelique Hoekstra and dressed by me .He is clean and snug in his bed made by Jan, based on a design in the magazine Poppenhuizen en Miniaturen. The quilt was  made by friend Danielle. I made the pillow and the sheet from and old hankie wich I found at Joana`s table in Madrid.

Ootjepetootjes life

Ootjes life consists mainly of eating, sunbathing, purring, sleeping, running, fighting with Gloomy, looking innocent , making a mess of the plants, and growing! He has long legs and big feet! Can you see the letter O on his side (both sides), thats why we called him Ootje=little O.
