My Prizes From Klara's Giveaway!

Klara Meijer had an amazing miniatures giveaway a few weeks ago on her blog. I couldn't believe I was so fortunate to win her prize #1. When I heard about it, I was giddy with excitement! It took a couple of weeks to receive Klara's package--the postal service was taking forever (at least in my mind). Finally, one day I opened my mailbox, and what a surprise! The package was there.


I brought the package up to my craft room and started opening it. The first thing I found was an inner package with these words written on it:


I opened the inner packet and found several gift-wrapped presents. Of course, my heart was pounding and my fingers were shaking, I was so excited!


Finally, I opened each present and found treasure after treasure:


Klara made each miniature item with so much thought, care, and skill. I am so touched by her thoughtfulness. Now you can see them laid out in my partially-refurbished vintage heirloom dollhouse:


Klara's mini hat is at the foot of the bed, which is difficult to see in this photograph. Her miniature ladies suitcase is sitting on the settee, her shoes and purse on the pink rug in front of the dressing table, which holds several more of her gifts.

As you can see, this miniature bedroom is very much in the process of being refurbished. However, you can also see how her items set the mood of the room, they are so lovely. Bella the bride bunny fits in so well here with all of this pretty lady-stuff. I will take a better photo once I've completed the house remodel--then you will be able to see Klara's items in all their glory!

Thank you, Klara, for a lovely blog giveaway! I feel so fortunate to have won your lovely prizes! Oh, and speaking of giveaways, don't forget mine here. It closes June 18, so there is still time to enter it for a chance to win several prizes. Until next time.... xoxo Jennifer
