Last may I joined another workshop from Wim van Soest and learned how to make this stunning suitcase from real leather.

Although it was a warm day, it was fun to do and I had a great time. But it was also fun to pack the suitcase and daydream ... in fact ... George, an 10 year old boy is packing it right now!! He is leaving this afternoon to go to visit his granddad for the weekend. They planned a visit at the observatory tomorrow and George is looking forward to it. But this evening they will have fun being busy with something they both like more than anything else: comics!!

I wish you all a great summer!!

  9. Welcome back! I always leave open mouth, before your little treasures ... The suitcase is adorable and makes me wonder just when the children spent their holidays by their grandparents.
    Now no longer used, is a sin!
    Happy holidays to you too, a mini hug, Flora

  15. Hello Monique. I finally found the time to read all your posts. Are you one of my favorite blogs. You have some beautiful miniatures and are very good as a student. What you are able to do in the various workshops is very attractive. I was struck by the tennis rackets of these photos. Where can I get something?
