Is the back-and-forth with the artisan, getting the details just right, before the order is completed and shipped out. I just sent the artisan who created the alchemist's bookcase and the harp a link to last night's blog post, showing Celeste happy with her harp and Blessing happy to be reading.
The talent of some of these folks is just astounding. There is exquisite furniture coming out of Russia for the big dolls, and lovely 1/6 scale items are available from an artisan in Spain. The breakfast-in-bed tray and fixin's are coming from Austin. So happy to support a fellow artist closer to home.
Making a deliberately early night of it, as I have a 7:00a.m. appointment, and they want me there twenty minutes early.
