Tiny Treasures!

Yesterday the mail brought another wonderful surprise! Three little blue boxes and a skeleton from the spectacularly clever Debbie at Tiny Treasures.

Debbie had told me she was making something special for Noah. Liberty quite liked that skeleton until she saw that he had a big scar in the back of his head. Debbie hadn't just sent something for Noah though, there was a box for each of us!

Those are the tiniest ice-creams Liberty is holding. Each box was filled with so many wonderful tiny treats. I had one very excited daughter!

Just look at all that gorgeous mini food and the pretty clock. Liberty couldn't decide which thing she liked the best but before she went to bed she picked up the cake with pink icing and fruit on top and said, "This really is the best one!" Make sure you click the picture to enlarge and you'll see how fantastic it all looks...I can't decide on a favourite but even hubby marvelled at the tray of pastries and the tiny Christmas mince pies.

Liberty got out her dollhouse people and made sure they all had a comfortable seat so they could look at the party food.

Here's the Mister having an extra good look...but that's as close as he got!

Noah gets home after school an hour later than Liberty. It was torture for her to wait that long for him to open his surprise, she carefully supervised him.

I had told Debbie that her Harry Potter minis are the only minis that really interest Noah. And look at what she sent him. He was thrilled! There's even a bag of special bubbles so he can make his own bubbling cauldron...and with the summer school holidays almost here that sounds like a great idea to keep him occupied. Then we'll have to see if we can build a room to house all his minis (quite a challenge for me! I'll be moving to the dark side. LOL!). Those bones are quite spectacular...and as for those adorable toadstools...well I've just 'borrowed' those for a little while Debbie (I promise I'll give them back to Noah), you'll see them again next week!
Thank you Debbie!

  6. So pleased that you all liked your little gifts. So sorry you've had to wait so long for them.
    That box has been waiting to be sent for months. Glad you took pictures, as I couldn't remember what I put in the boxes.
    Mercedes that clock was made by another friend in the mini world Robert Mack, he used to work at Royal Doulton and it is real Bone China..
    Can't wait to see what you and Noah come up with. A walk on the Dark side...Cackle cackle xxx

  7. Mercedes, these gifts, especially the food must be so perfect for you as you don't really make food (or haven't ventured there yet). They are gorgeous and will fill up that wonderful shabby house of yours quickly. Beautiful work, Debbie!
