Hi Everyone! You remember my recent trip to San Francisco to see Maria of Pretty Things Ireland blog? I showed you some snapshots from our wonderful time together. Now I'll show what I bought and the precious gifts I received from Maria. First, I bought one of these items at The Hobby Company of San Francisco. Can you guess which item I bought there?
If you guessed the miniature chocolate pudding in the parfait glass, you were right! Here's everything I bought that day. The mass on the left is a pile of rubber black bats, just in time for Halloween. The beads on the right are for making miniature cake stands. I didn't buy much, did I?
On the other hand, Maria gave me so many precious gifts that I think my bag was bulkier than when I left my house that morning loaded with food for my trip! First, Maria had Irish chocolate for me:
I have a bunch of food allergies, and I really shouldn't have, but I ended up eating a lot of this chocolate and sharing just a little with friends. So naughty of me, but it was so good! Really yummy chocolate, Maria! Thank you very much! ;-)
Next, Maria gave me a gorgeous special Irish handmade glass guardian angel in a beautiful fabric-lined box. I'll treasure it always, Maria! Thank you again for your sweetness!
Finally, Maria made me so many beautiful dollhouse miniatures. Not only these,
I was and am so overwhelmed with Maria's sweetness, thoughtfulness, and generosity. Now I'll have all of these treasures (minus the yummy chocolate!) to remind me of our special day together in San Francisco. I hope I have the chance to meet many more of you, my dear blog friends, in the future. If you're half as nice as Maria, we'll have a sweet time together. :-) Until then, keep having fun! xoxo Jennifer
