Good Old Days..

Nestled in a corner of Antwerp is this wonderful old fashioned toy shop called Den Olifant (The Elephant!). Filled with lots of traditional wooden toys, inspiring books and these gorgeous rooms filled with Steiff toys. Enjoy your visit!




I'm busy behind the scenes working on some exciting new projects, let's just say the needles and colourful threads are out getting creative! Hugs, Catherine x

What a wonderful place! There should be more toy stores like that... not these giant places full of things made of plastic--LOL! Very exciting about your new work in the pipeline... will look forward to seeing. Happy Day, Catherine :o) ((HUGS))
