I recently made a purchase from Flora's Etsy shop, FloraDollhouse. You must know her amazing blog, La casa delle bambole di Flora. I, too, had been following her blog with interest for the last year or so. Every time she would post on her blog, I would be right there, eyeing every little wonderful romantic, mini shabby chic detail.
So recently, I finally made a purchase in her shop. Why it took me so long, I have no idea. I never imagined what a fabulous, nurturing gift to self that it would be. I ordered a lovely pink gingham shabby pitcher, but I received so much more:
For in addition to the gorgeous pitcher, Flora sent three beautiful shabby books. One opens, with beautiful colorful recipes inside. So beautiful!
In addition to all this, she sent this beautiful flower ornament. It looks so lovely hanging on Cupcake Cottage's door! Wow! I never imagined all of the sweet gifts Flora would send. After I initially looked at her gifts, I had to put them aside to keep from getting teary. And she even wrapped everything in gorgeous paper with ribbon!
Thank you so much for your kindness, my friend! You are a treasure to the miniature community! Your works are pieces of beauty. If you haven't seen them, Flora's blog and online shop are feasts for the eyes.
Speaking of lovely gifts, I received two blog awards from special blog friends. The first one was from Eleonora of Nelle scatole oiccine...ci sone le cose preziose! blog:
Eleonora has a fun blog with beautiful handmade food and dolls--it's a must-see! Thank you so much, Eleonora! Then, most recently, MelyMel of MelyMel Piccoli sogni blog honored me with another award:
I've written about Mely's blog before, because I love its sweetness so much. What? You haven't looked at it yet? Please look now--you won't be disappointed! Thank you so much, Mely! Until next time.... xoxo Jennifer
