Sweet Birthday Gifts From Italy!

I am blown away by the generosity of miniaturists, and that's no more true than on birthdays. My birthday is around Easter each year, but this year the gifts have started flooding in already. I'll be completely overwhelmed if I don't start showing some of these beautiful miniatures now. Flossy and Sophie want to show you the gorgeous handmade birthday gifts they received from Fabiola of Miominimondo blog. First, Flossy is modeling the pinwheel Faby made:


And now you can see the whole table-ful of gifts Faby sent:


Aren't they all so sweet?


Did you notice the red ball of string at the bottom of the kite? Too cute! Thank you so much for all of your thoughtful and beautiful birthday gifts, Faby! I appreciate your friendship so much!

Next, another beautiful package of gifts came from Italy. Can you guess who made them?


Yes, they were all made by MelyMel of MelyMel Piccoli Sogni blog. Everything is so beautiful and romantic. See the exquisite cinnamon bread on a shabby chic tray that Mely made:


And her magnificent handmade clay roses with rose-adorned tart and shabby box of bread in the background:


And this gorgeous teapot with cake stand in the background--wow!


Plus, Mely also sent all of these beautiful craft supplies:


Thank you so much, Mely! Your gifts are so beautiful and so thoughtful, and your friendship means so much!

Alright, since this post is already long and photo-heavy, I will stop here. Thank you to two dear friends in Italy! You've made my birthday month so special! Until next time, keep having fun! xoxo Jennifer

  16. Hi Jennifer! With Faby and Mely sending you gifts you're going to have one heck of a birthday!! I love the kite, and I would never have thought of a miniature pinwheel, what a fun idea!
    Mely's food is always so beautifully made, the bread and cake are just perfect. The roses are so delicate and gorgeous and the teapot is definitely one for the girls!
    Kind regards, Brian.
