Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

The Customer Is Right !!

This entry is not for the faint of heart . . . and we apologize for the disturbing image! A customer mail ordered a magnetic dancing ballerina. She was thrilled that we had them and we sent one off to her in California. A few days later, an email arrived. The customer was "very disappointed in the quality. The ballerina has totally misshapen eyes, her "lipstick" is all over her face, and to top it off there are missing spots of blue on her dress." I wondered if she was being a little fussy. Then, I looked at the photo. NOT being too fussy. That is one scarey looking ballerina. So, we went through our stock to find a better one . . . and . . . no luck. The ones that didn't have a gash for a mouth looked like they had black eyes. You don't notice if you're not holding one close . . . still, they didn't used to be like this. Who is painting these ballerinas? Yikes!
