Gifts and Giveaway From MelyMel!

There are some people in blogland who are extra special because of their sweetness. Dear Mely of MelyMel Piccoli Sogni blog is one of those special people. She recently sent me a huge package of miniatures all made by hand. Each gift is a tiny masterpiece, as the love with which she made each one is palpable.

Flossy is very excited to show you a few of the minis that Mely sent. First, can you tell that Flossy is sitting in a chair, and do you see that there is another one next to her? Mely made both of these sweet chairs so that Flossy and any guest, such as Sophie, could sometimes sit in the kitchen while baking or visiting. What thoughtful gifts! Flossy and Sophie's aching paws thank you, dear friend!

Of course, everything on the table was made by Mely too, including the darling cupcake box on the lower rack, but this isn't everything she sent. She also sent these prizes that I won in her recent giveaway:

Prizes won in Mely's giveaway, including hand crocheted bedding.
Mely's shabby chic chairs with woven seats and coordinating frames.
Teapots, cake, canisters, candy, popcorn machine and sewing box.
More hand crocheted bedding, a bread box,
pretty soaps, and delicious food.
Look at this amazing homemade Italian food!

The rest of the gifts were for Christmas and birthday gift exchanges that we had arranged. Christmas, you say? Yes, unfortunately Mely's first package for Christmas never arrived, so she insisted on making everything over again and sending a new package, despite my repeated protests. There are no words to describe my gratitude.

Thank you so much, Mely! You've brightened my year with your thoughtful and beautiful gifts. I'm lucky to have such a sweet friend in you. For all my friends in blogland, please do yourself a favor and visit Mely's blog today. You'll be so glad you did. Until next time, keep it fun! xoxo Jennifer
