    Thanks Maksi! And you're so lucky because Ikea in Holland is cheaper than either France or here! Not as cheap as the States though! :lol: Plus your krentenbollen are nicer than our currant buns! I make Hans bring me them home! :mrgreen:
    Aaaah krentebollen, I love krentebollen!!! Should I send you some Ikea stuff from here? or do you send Hans to the Dutch Ikea when is coming back from work. ( I love IKEA stuff, I'm a real IKEA addict :oops: )

    On site tours by appointment, all welcome, Pimms served in the garden afterwards. ;) Oh, don't know if you have Pimms in the States, it's a classic English summer drink, a kind of punch with fruit in it, and it's deceptively strong so we'll all be giggly in no time! :mrgreen: )
    Of course - so long as you leave your suitcases at the door!

    Of course I'll leave them at the door. Makes for a quicker get away! lol

    You guys can have all the wine, just don't leave me out of the cheese that will be spreading!!!! ;)
    Glad to see you back, Mousie.

    As long as K and Terri are planning a road trip, you might as well squeak in - I've already said the overflow from the bedrooms can use the pop-up camper ~ some of your 'fieldy' friends are probably already using it ~ ~ ~

    I know where some dealers are, so may inquire from them.
    Hubby will need to know what to get me for Christmas after all!
    Your house is so quaint and lovely, K!
    I love everything about it...even Gandolph :XD:
    We didn't see Barney or Dugal dog or chickens? You did move the whole family didn't you?

    I decided I need to mention the bats. The ones that get in the house a couple times a year. Just in case any of you are bat-phobic LIKE ME!

    It's one of the reasons I'll never trade DH in - he's a great bat-catcher! I just dive under the covers and scream BAT!

    Um...bats? Hmm...might have to rethink the trip north. Maybe I'll visit when you get back to Arizona?

    Hey Ninnie! Wanna come with me when I head over to Spain? Gonna TRY to make it Spain, maybe France (pop in to see Katrine since K left her) and then on to England to see some there. I'm thinking June next year,,,so, ya got almost a year to save up.

    And yes...I'm quiet. Just ask Sharon b...

    Well, lucky lucky you. You have now made us feel so envious. I must say you are very tidy and your quilts all look lovely. Feeling very inferior

    What a beautiful space to work in. I would never leave..Would love to see the rest of the home. I've never or will I, ever get to go to another country. That's why I love HGTV "House Hunter's International" Love to see all the places in the world. So fascinating to watch.. Enjoy your room..

    boy are you lucky. Imagine having all that space to work in and also living in an old school house --must have a lot of history behind it also. Love your quilts.
