    OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!! This is beautiful! Could you possible take some more pics at different angles (a little more close up) so it would be easier to see the scale of it all and the details of everything? This is just fantastic! And did you make the wooden store yourself as well? I would love to be your grandchild! This will certainly be cherished for years and years to come!!!! :-)

    This is one loved DGS. The dedication and love that went into this brings tears to my eyes. It is just a glorious little store. Would love to be there just to see the look on his face and to watch what he touches first. I am at a loss for words. Pam

    That child is blessed to have a Grandma that loves him so much. Your work is astounding, be it quilt or toys. I think I'm your biggest fan.

    the shop itself I bought from an auction house here in switzerland. The great thing: one can remove the square section in the back. On the other side is a curtain and it is also theater for puppets. Thankfully there were half a dozend puppets included!

    As for pics for details: I posted several topics whenever I finished a section. If you go to my topics you find all the detail pics.

    This is amazing. How creative of you to put this together. Start of a new entrepeneaur (sp)? Do post pictures when the shop is open. Would love to be there to see you DGS's eyes when he sees this. Do hope he spends lots of time with you.

    Granny 59 -

    What you have done here is nothing short of amazing. I have loved watching your posts as you finish the individual fruits and vegetables. I agree that a few close-up shots are in order. We'd love to admire the whole family all together!

    Darren

    BTW - what's the story on the cabinet? Is that homemade too?
