hurrah! opening night! Leon loved! custom order!

These guys waiting patiently in the art gallery for the opening night of this exhibition.

and here they are! So many creative peeps and artists!
and breakdancers! How impossibly trendy is that?
and HURRAH! Leon found a home before the exhibition started! He was snatched up here in the arms of the lovely Tobiah who was one of the exhibition organizers, and is Liquorice Tree. She makes amazing felted creatures, see them here!
Tobiah is creating her nursery and has placed a custom order for a girl 'Leon', to sit on each side and guard her baby's crib! The nursery will be featured in a design magazine too! Wow!
Can you tell I'm excited? I think the exclamation marks are giving me away! And then there's the book! I think I'm going to go and lie down!

How cool is Leon! And even cooler that he has found a loving home, has a friend on order and has been given an important job to do! No wonder you're using lots of exclamation marks!!!!!
