About Me

My photo
IMAGINATION IS THE EYE OF THE SOUL Joseph Joubert. I am a mother of four...I still remember the smile that refused to go away for weeks after our daughters birth. To have a little girl appear after three sons seemed such a miracle. I have always enjoyed My Doll World, sharing it with Lara when she was little. Today I design knitted outfits for miniature dolls and enjoy every minute of it. The fact that the outfits are removable is what makes it so special for me. Using ever finer threads has opened so many MINIATURE DESIGN opportunities.

Days of Our Lives

Our daughter Lara heads up store development for the firm 

Jimmy Choo

She has been working on a store in Antwerp.

  How beautiful is this old world facade.

Then you walk inside to this ultra modern, very chic display.

Oh I remeber when one's feet could wear beautiful shoes. 

One time in Canada I found this wonderful pair of Italian shoes, half the price I would have had to pay back home.

I was walking up and down admiring them when the sales assistant said in a very American/Canadian accent.....

"An they ganna walk right out the door!"


Every time I put those shoes on, I heard his voice.
  Emelda Marcos had nothing on me when it came to shoes.
Love them.

One part of one's body that stayed the same size....until now!


What I found so appealing was the unexpected greenery of the back garden.

Incorporating the garden into the store was clever, I imediately felt more relaxed when I saw it, I can only imagine what it does to customers when in the shop.

My Miniature Baby Boutique will have to be equally elegant...
What say you!


  1. Mmmmmm Jimmy Choo shoes.....how exciting, and I do love the outside looking in, how charming! Sadly, my feet do not fit nice shoes anymore.....and certainly not high heels....but it is fun to look at them isn't it!!!

  2. Sharon esa tienda es una provocación! adoro los zapatos finos... aun puedo usar tacones y como tu, Imelda Marcos me queda pequeña!
    Tu boutique infantil será MUCHO más elegante y fina que esa zapatería.
    Un fuerte abrazo

  3. That shop really is something and I too share your addiction to shoes, not only the ones I am walking in. Mini sized as well.
