Hello, I want to thank two very generous people who have recently sent me gifts from Australia and South Africa. I am so touched by their kindness, I asked if they would mind me sharing what they sent to me with you all. I would also like to show Fi and Elga their gifts placed in their new home!
Firstly, Fi sent me some beautiful little shells from Australia, all carefully wrapped in tissue paper and stored in tiny cardboard boxes that she made herself, complete with hand drawn illustrations of the shells contained inside.
The boxes in themselves are beautiful, but the shells inside are amazing, full of patterns and so tiny! I had to find something special to display them in!
I got this little display table from McQueenie Miniatures (not a kit, but available in a kit format). It only had room to store a small selection of shells, so I picked some of my favourites. The display table is now in the Library of my Georgian house.
Thank you Fi!!! xxx
Elga also sent my a very generous gift, two in fact, as I was also lucky enough to win her give away competition for the chair, with it's beautifully stitched seat cover. She also kindly gave me a miniature tall boy she had made from a white wood kit.
I was so excited when the parcel arrived! Both items had been very carefully wrapped up to keep them safe. It was like Christmas all over again! The tall boy is perfect for displaying more of my miniature blue and white china!
Here is the tall boy in place on the landing, displaying some of my china, the vase in the centre is a recent purchase, made by Murial Hopwood, and two little ginger jars.
I wanted the chair to go into a room where it would be easily seen, especially the fine needlework, so I created a special place for it in the parlour, where it sits very well indeed.
Thank you Elga!!! xxx
It's strange to think these thoughtful little gifts have travelled over so many miles. I am so pleased with them, Thank you both once again!
