It is absolutely freezing here today. So cold that I have an awful splitting headache which refuses to submit to painkillers so I've been tinkering around today, doing stuff which doesn't require me to have clear vision and rock-steady hands.
That aside, Small Dog and I received a heart-warming package in the post this morning, which contained this......
The miniature likeness of Small Dog was created by the very talented Catherine Black from France, whose blog/website I showcased not long ago. It's beautifully made, with a sweet little red leather collar and even has a swivel head. Just like the real thing in fact.
Small Dog is particularly pleased because her mini-me has what she calls a 'paw-span waist'.
Even smaller Small Dog is now installed in my day nursery, gazing longingly at a plate of minuscule French Fancies on the doll's dolls tea party table.
Surely a case of art imitating life.....
