More from Germany, and from the Arnhem dollhouse fair

This beautifull little plate I found in one of the souvenir shops in Schwangau, the town near Neuschwanstein castle. There isn't a building there that hasn't been turned into a restaurant, hotel or souvenir shop. It did spoil the romance about the castle a little, all those tacky souvenir shops... But we didn't let it spoil anything for us, we just went with it and laughed at the silly things they sold there.
But this little piece caught my eye and I thought it could make a nice walldecoration in my new dollhouse. It's very detailed and quite pretty I think.

The castle and the whole vacation in the forests has enchanted me as you can see by the number of posts I've allready made about it :P

Here is a picture of some of the things I bought at the Arnhem dollhouse fair, a whitewood bed, a ebony turned wooden cup, a real silver candlestick, a net of oranges and one that's beeing peeled open. The crate with beerbottles is one of the brands my boyfriend actually drinks. And offcourse you see the souvenir plate from Neuschwanstein. All sitting on top of my new favourite book.

In this book I found this picture, I like it very much and I think I'll use it as inspiration for the library in my new dollhouse.

  2. I like your purchases and that photo of the library is fantastic, can't wait to see more of yours.

  3. Oooo I have been after that bed for some time but I can't find a store that speaks English. Could you please give me the seller's name and or contact details? I'd be most appreciative!

  7. thank you all for the wonderfull comments! I'm glad you find my trip and my purchases so wonderfull.

    Shannon, I bought the bed at the fair but their website is: http://www.stellaquepassa.nl/
    It's a dutch site but I think if you ask them in English you can try to work something out with her?
