August, 2010. 5 year old Nunu helped make a Cinderella doll and dollhouse set for Katya’s 6th birthday.

We made the fireplace with cardboard box covered with clay. Here Nunu cut out the shapes of the bricks. We will then paint the fireplace and add a battery operated tea light that flickers, inside the fireplace, partly covered by a thin layer of blue wool roving to look like smoke.

Nunu diligently sewed  a pillowcase for Cinderella. Notice the painted fireplace on the right corner.

Happy 6th Birthday Katya!

Cinderella woke up joyfully in the morning. She fluffed the straw in her bed, hung her laundry to dry, sorted some peas for lunch, swept the floor and put on her best straw hat to go to the market.

What a wonderful day, Cinderella can’t wait to greet the world!
