I hope you are all doing well. We have been back from holiday for 2 weeks now, but I am afraid work and computer problems (I keep getting was is referred to as the blue screen of death) have kept me from commenting on your blogs. I have been following your new posts and will start commenting this week. It is amazing to see what you have been up to! I just thought I would write a post about our holiday in the Canary Islands. First of all, since this is a blog about miniatures, I had time to draw and plan a few things for the Manor.

Another thing I worked on was the music room. the floors are well under way and I mentioned that I wanted to add panelling on the bottom half of the walls. the panelling will be white with gold frames, and in the centre I will paint gold peacocks. I tested with the paint and thing it will be great, but on the trip I worked on how to make the peacocks.

Sorry, my computer decided the picture should be on its side. I also worked on the Loggia, but more ont hat later.
Our holiday started in Barcelona. All I can say is Barcelona is my first pic if I can ever afford an apartment in Europe. Before I left Eva contacted me. She, along with Isabel, met up with me at Drap, a miniature store that was close to out hotel.

And now for the trip itself. We took about 1500 pictures, so I decided on one or 2 for each stop

|Loggia (just a very fast sketch to get an idea)|
So that was my holiday! Even far from home I am always thinking and concentrating on Dewell Manor

Big hug to all,
