One of My Favourite World War II true stories...
The dramatic story of a Jewish childhood ravaged by the Nazis. A young girl is the shocked witness to the destruction of her family and makes a thrilling and miraculous escape from the same fate. By the time she was barely a teenager, Johanna-Ruth Dobschiner was already an adept fugitive, one step ahead of her Nazi pursuers as she went underground, moving from one sympathetic Dutch family to another until the end of the war. On her travels she encounters a Christian community, and through them she discovers Jesus and realises that she has been selected to live in more ways than one...

Over the last few months Sarah, Gracie and I have experimented with Japanese clay for Gracie's Playmobil toy collection, and Mama, Papa and Mary have been the admires of our somewhat clumsy efforts. Practice makes perfect that's for sure. Anyhow, I thought to put some photos of our craft! :)
P.S. some of the items are set in Playmobil items (e.g. pots, pans and large plastic plates) which we haven't done, but all the food and cutlery and stuff are Japanese Clay! Below also are some photos of Gracie's Playmobil dollhouse.
Here is the newest edition to our clay items!
This is our master-piece.... Sarah's apple pie!
Sarah did the sandwiches, the fish and the biscuits...
That funny little round bowl is a lentil soup by Joy
The cream muffins are also by Joy.

The Robinson's family has grown!!!!
That was all the food and stuff set up.
Contributors: Sarah, Joy and Grace.
Carob cake and jam tart by Sarah, meat pie and sweat muffins by Joy
a fuzzy picture of Joy and Gracie's
yellow cheese with actual holes (the mice didn't eat the cheese),
Joy's salad/fruit/meat and Sarah's eggs and bread muffin
A closer look at some of the foods and items
(the fried eggs done mostly by Joy, whole eggs by Sarah and Grace,
and the silver cutlery and cups by Sarah)
The loaves were quite easy to make but we took sometime
finding the perfect colour tint for the bread
I just love those cakes.... 'hmmmm'
Gracie did most of those dirt potatoes for the farm house.
We used pastel colours to paint them brownish and muddy! P.S. the pan and lid are Playmobil :)
One of Sarah's great chocolate cakes, LOL!
Sarah used a kind of glue to give it a jelly look
I meant this to be a meat pie but Mum said it was more like an ice-cream Bombey!!!!
Gracie's really special fruit basket.
The delicate red grapes and black-spotted bananas were one of my better inventions...
Fragrant morning toast by Sarah
and the white plate and silver knife are done by her too.
The vase and pink rose by Joy
Real Swiss cheese done by Joy and Grace. The salad bowl is somewhat funny by Joy.
Sarah's cutlery and cups
meat slices done by Joy
They are rather fatty!!!!
