To get back home is usually comforting, no matter how good the trip might have been. But without MJ I admit it was a little sad...
Sinto que logo teremos novidades sobre ela, avisarei assim que ela chegar ao novo destino!
But I feel we'll soon have news from her in her new location. I will let you all know as soon as she gets there!
Por aqui, algumas novidades. Lembram da mexeriqueira que a MJ viu no seu primeiro dia? Pois não é que, quando voltei, estava carregadinha de flores??? Acho que foi a MJ que trouxe toda esta exuberância!
Meanwhile, I came home to find some news. Do you remember the tangerine tree MJ saw on her first day here? Would you believe that when I came back it was loaded with flowers?!... That was so pretty to see! And the smell is delicious too! I think it was MJ's good energy that brought all that profusion!
|a flor mede menos de 2 cm, muito delicada!|
The flower is less than 3/4" in diameter, very delicate!
|Que fofo essas mini-tangerinas!|
Those baby-tangerines are so cute!
Even a persimmon tree I had planted here more than 10 years ago and it was usually leafless, suddenly has all these green beautiful leaves, wow!

About miniatures now: yesterday (Saturday) I drove my mom to a store where she usually goes to buy cookies and candy. My folks are addicted to that kind of junk food (my mom and dad, both 84...). We usually get those at a store that sells quantity and their customers are either party makers, candy makers or small stores, so their prices are great. While my mom would pick her stuff, I like to browse their party stuff area. I usually find some very interesting things there that can be used on minis. And I made a great find there this time too! I found those little card 'baskets', meant to be used with some party candies that are common here. But they are perfect for miniature settings too. They could be used to hold magazines, towels, sewing stuff, baby stuff, anything one wishes. 24 little baskets for $2 is quite a bargain, don't you think? :)
