I've gotten a little bit behind on telling you all about some things. One of those things is about several precious gifts I've received.
First, Sans of The Dollhouse Diaries: My Maharaja's Palace fame, and the winner of my first giveaway sent me a beautiful Buddha from Singapore. Isn't it lovely?
And inside, another tiny (3/4 inch/2 cm tall) brass Buddha for my Victorian dollhouse, Dad's Dollhouse:
I had mentioned to her that I'd read that the Victorians were really interested in the Far East and its spiritual traditions. I wanted a single Buddha to represent that interest (which I happen to share, by the way). When Sans found the little Buddha she learned that this particular style is similar to ones from the Victorian time, making the gift all that more special. What a sweet and thoughtful gift, don't you think? Thank you Sans! Oh! But there's more to this story, a part that even Sans doesn't know! I'll fill you all in about that in the next couple of weeks. ;-)
I also want to acknowledge two more precious gifts I have received. First, just days ago, Maru of the blog Miniaturas y Munecas de Tica awarded my blog with the Premio Award:
She wrote (this is a translation from Spanish): "...is joy personified, because it gives you always a rush of mind, because it makes you laugh, its so original and charming creations, and for always being so loving to everyone and so much fun." Wow! I am very flattered! :-) Thank you SO much Maru!
Finally, a couple of months ago (I said that I had fallen behind, didn't I?), Eva of Casita de Regaliz blog awarded my blog with the Sunshine Award:
Isn't it pretty? Thank you so much, Eva! That is really sweet of you!
I would like to share both of these blog awards with all of my blog friends. You are the ones who make blogging fun! Thank you for being here. It means the world to me. Next blog post: Giveaway Winner! Until next time.... xoxo Jennifer
