  1. Beautiful pix, Elie! I am eager to see some updates of the restaurant as well. So excited to hear that the ice cream machine came back to life. Any similar luck with the dustbuster?
    Love to you both!

  2. Those are awesome figures! Does she make cooking scenes? Where does Alfreda live in Liberia?

  3. Those are really fantastic!
