As many of you know it has been a bit of a tough start to the year for us with my husband losing his job and being unemployed for six months (thankfully now employed again). It has meant a change to our lifestyle and pretty much a nil budget for miniatures.
Therefore I was extremely happy when a parcel of miniatures arrived in the post the other day from Barcelona. I was even happier when I opened the parcel and saw the items inside.
The parcel was from Sandra of La Casita Pequena and contained items I had won in her recent giveaway. While I knew what I was receiving the items were even better than the pictures on her blog showed in her giveaway post:
Sandra thank you so so much. I love everything and your workmanship is exquisite.
This is what that parcel contained:
The items were packaged in a lovely orange box (photo of lid only) which happens to be my 'happy' colour.
This was what was inside.
A beautiful hydrangea in a pot - and I love hydrangeas.
A family book and an old newspaper.
The family book is wonderful and has pages of family certificates.
A little drawer containing a stack of postcards.
A beautiful orchid.
A lovely pitcher.
A cute cluster of tiny candles.
A bag of rubbish.
A fruit crate and a coloured base.
Having a play I turned the fruit crate over with the base on top as a table.
And a little surprise (as it wasn't included in the giveaway description) a delightful little daisy in an apple tin.
Do check out Sandra's blog. Her miniatures are exquisite. I love her Urban Trash project, perhaps because I have two naughty little kittens:
So, you can understand why I am happy.
Wishing you happiness too.
