Forgotten Member Introduction (Apologies!!!)

Anita Maria and I must apologize for neglecting to introduce to you one of our members who joined our clan in August! Her name is AllJ and she came to us by way of Miffa.

Here she is in a moody picture with Anita Maria’s lunch, at her favorite German Restaurant.

Sorry about that!

New friends from far away (once again)!

Anita invited (bought online) a couple of new friends to live with us. They are all the way from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam! Their names are PainterJ (who’s a painter just like Rembrandt, whose many worlds feature in the Rijksmuseum) and AdmiralJ (whose appearance is inspired by a famous naval leader in Dutch history, Admiral Michiel de Ruyter)

Seen here is AdmiralJ admiring (heh heh heh!) PainterJ's landscape.

New Members Introduction Continued!

Continuing our new member introduction “series”:

CapeJ came to us from Japan’s Kiddyland.  Anita Maria’s friend from dance was visiting Japan and she brought her back.

CapeJ... the combination is quite nice, don't you think?

CapeJ… the combination is quite nice, right?

GrumpyJ, as you can see, is a Care Bear.

I think the color combination is quite nice, don't you?

New members Introduction ~ PearlJ and Kleine PearJ

These two came to us via eBay!

They are actually from this exhibition:

The Mauritshuis Gallery, one of Anita’s favorite museums, has closed for renovation.  Their masterpieces went on tour, and one of the stops was Tokyo (and Kobe), Japan.  To commemorate this occasion, Miffy is dressed up as the “Girl with a Pearl Earring,” the famous tronie by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer. Hence, PearlJ (and Kleine PearlJ).

I think they should be called Griet (the name of the girl in the book Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier) and /or Pearl Jam, just saying.

Here she is - PearlJ in Hollywood Road Park

Here she is, our new Care Bear member ~ WishJ! She is sent to live with the clan by Anita’s Twitter friend from the U.S. She is of a beautiful aquamarine color and her fur looks and feels like corduroy.  She is vintage and she comes with a wrinkled tag on her left ear, which Anita still doesn’t want to remove. Welcome WishJ!
