More wonderful mail!

To quote Sabiha 'this week it is raining gifts'! Today I received a package of goodies from Kim Saulter of 'It's a Miniature Life'.
Kim said she would send a hutch dresser for me to 'work my magic on' for the shabby house. But she also sent all those other goodies - lots of wonderful things for me to play with! So much fun to be had!
I had been having some trouble finding a dresser that was the right size (and was too lazy to invent one) and look at this one, it is the PERFECT size for this little house. Check back in a day or two to see how it turns out once I've waved my wand, lol!

I think the most marvellous thing that Kim sent was that perfect strawberry cake, it's just amazing to have one of her cakes here in my house after seeing them on her wonderful blog for so long. (The table isn't really that crooked, it's just my photographic skills aren't up to much!)

If you haven't already popped over to Kim's blog you are in for the most wonderful treat (Kim is the BEST when it comes to shabby chic)!

Thank you Kim!



  1. Oh Mercedes, I'm thrilled it made it there. I'm glad the hutch works so well. I love it there. Can't wait to see what you do to it. Really I know it will be so wonderful. Glad you like your other goodies too. I have painted that fireplace screen shabby several times. Have fun with it. Its one of my favorites once its painted. Your little books are so wonderful.
