Monsieur Steve Coallier, a master!

Bonjour mes amis! It's Shirley here, in for Monsieur Olivet, who has been very, very busy enjoying discovering his new home here in California! My brilliant and dear friend Lourie, whom I have known since junior high school, married a lovely gentleman named Steve two years ago (Happy Anniversary, you two lovebirds!), and it turns out that Steve secretly created a most wondrous thing....

...introducing the amazing, stupendous, mind-boggling, super-duper awesome 3-D Monsieur Olivet!!!

I first introduced him to the backyard..he had a nice look at the pool.
Perhaps he shall shed his winter clothes and take a dip? 
Feeling a bit overwhelmed with his new surroundings, Monsieur quickly sped off to find a shady spot. He felt a little more comfortable amongst the leaves and blades of grass.
But, it was time to come in and discover the inhabitants of his new home...
"hmmm....who lives here?"
Don't worry, Monsieur, this is our little fish named Rock's house. Rock's tank is going under some cleaning at this time, so you get to enjoy this very familiar pineapple shaped home. I'm sure Monsieur is quite confused now. Well, off to discover something I know Monsieur will simply love...

"mon Dieu!"

Sierra's violin! That must be the largest violin you've ever seen, isn't it Monsieur? I hope we get to enjoy a little of your violin playing here now. I hear you are quite the master!

Off we go to visit Noëlle's room...and we want you to meet a dear friend, dear Paddington Bear! He's a favorite of ours.

Tellement confortable!    
As we visited the rooms, something had quite an eye on Monsieur..and to my surprise, Monsieur climbed right on up to check her out.
Zsófi was quite a good girl, though she sniifed Monsieur quite a lot. She ultimately gave him the seal of approval. Whew!

Monsieur was a little hungry after so much excitement, I decided to go get him some food. I thought that a hefty piece of Gouda and a little fruit would do him well.

But alas, it's getting late...and I wanted to introduce Monsieur to some of my favorite things. I hope he'll enjoy visiting here awhile, discovering the stories and friends who already embrace him as family.
Thank you so much Steve! Your remarkable talents and generosity have touched my heart and I am so very grateful. Words simply are not enough to thank you for bringing Monsieur Olivet to life! We welcome Monsieur with lots and lots of love, and we'll take very good care of him! Hugs to you and Lourie..you two are blessings in my life.  ~ xo Shirley

I've been away for so long!

The kind lady who runs this blog has been working on her craft and apologizes sincerely.

I have been reading, and studying, and am getting ready to start my December project. I hope you've all been well. The holidays are coming, and I have some shopping to do. As the weather turns crisp, one of the highlights at the end of a busy day is enjoying a cup of tea by the fire.

Au revoir, mes amis!

In my youth, and still today..

...I visit the local library.

It's been far too long since I've said Bonjour, dear friends. My apologies! I hope you've all been well.
~ Monsieur Olivet
