Hello my Beautiful friends and family.
I want to thank you so much for all the lovely birthday wishes!!!
It has been another wonderful year of my life ... so very worth living.
Each year is getting more precious indeed.
This year ... I received a very AMAZING and generous gift from my husband and family!!!!
They came to realize that this gift would be a fantastic "dream come true" for me.
Dreams really can come true ...and...when they do...sometimes...they are even better than the imagined dream itself .
I have finally had a "GREAT HONOR" to visit my beloved and respected friend, Nad'a, and the "Panenek Museum of Czech Republic"!!!!
The Museum of Dolls and Teddy-bears... is directed by the Lovely Lady 'Nad'a Simkova.
It was a thirteen hour trip for me by plane... over the vast ocean to visit this wonderful person and amazing museum.
The experience I had was worth every moment of my time.
I was treated with royalty... by the lovely Nad'a Simkova and her Debonair Husband... "George".
I just knew for the first time in life... I had become a real "Princess" ...as I was treated with such loving kindness and with great respect during my visit.
We shared ten glorious days together touring the beautiful cities of Prague... and Carlsbad. We visited Castles and villages.
We also viewed the amazing rock formations and natural sights of the incredible creations of caves and canyons.
The "Czech Republic " is a most gorgeous country!!!!
A bit about the museum... from my "very own eyes".
This museum is breathtaking... seriously ... I have never in my life seen so many extremely high quality dolls from all over the world in one single place. Each step I took in the museum made me feel like I was in some sort of amazing dream.
Dolls were made in composition.. paper mache', porcelain,celluloid, clay, vinyl, silicone... and other materials are displayed with careful and deliberate consideration, to please the eyes of the observer. They are like "tasty sweet confections" to my eyes and soul.
There are the most beautiful prams... cribs... cradles, day beds and hospital isolet's and I've never seen pram covers... pillows and assorted bed coverings created with this much beauty. They are made in silks, satin, brocades ......adorned with embroideries and hand-made roses, with imported new and old antique laces and trims.
Exquisite baby clothing, displayed in beautiful array... in the loveliest of fabrics, laces and trims, so tickling to my fancy ...that I must pinch myself to make sure it is not ALL a dream...I say this .. with not one tiny bit of exaggeration!!!
I was simply"stunned" at this experience.
Never have I experienced such loving hospitality.
I am simply in "AWE"... at this wonderland ...that is beyond my dreams.
Nad'a is truly gifted in arranging, organizing and bringing all things together in a very beautiful manner that complements each and every article in her displays.
If anyone ever has the chance to view this magnificent museum ... you will have the experience of a lifetime.
I thank you George and Nad'a Simkova for all your hard work and Dedication to this museum.
I am greatly Honored to have my work displayed along with many many beautiful art pieces from artists around the world!!!!
And Nad'a....I am even more greatly HONORED to have met your children and Grandchildren.
They are truly your very best assets.
Thank you , Thank you, and Thank you ... again!!!!
