I am gobsmacked! But don't worry ~ that's a good thing.

Gobsmacked? Yeah, it was a new word for me too ~ guess the good Sisters at Mon Valley Catholic didn't do such a good job on my vocabulary after all.  But thanks to the international flair that enters our lives via online friends, I can say in true British slang that I am completely astounded and amazed by what I found in my inbox yesterday afternoon.

Those of you who follow the activates in Cobblestone Circle will no doubt remember Rolf Silke, the bartender at The Burgundy Turtle Pub.

He quickly found a new home and prompted a commission
for a bar customer, namely one Alastair Smythe.

One of the requirements was for Alastair to be able to place his foot on a bar rail . . . because . . . there is now an actual bar!

The detail is amazing! Look at those tiny beer taps!!!

The gal who has Rolf and Alastair (and quite a few other citizens) has commissioned artist Gerald Lusk to create a shadow box of sorts that will feature changeable setting for various mice from Cobblestone Circle!

I cannot tell you how much this touches my heart to see my little friends in 'homes' of their own.  I hope I continue to get updates of this project and will share them here as I do.

Well done, Gee!!!!


  1. What a wonderful idea. I know you must be sooo excited. Thank you for sharing this with us.


  2. How wonderful for you. That is an amazing bar and suits your creations perfectly. Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Wow, now I'm gobsmacked! That is just wonderful. Your patron obviously adores your cute little citizens. Love Alastair, and his costume!
