This stunning roombox is the gift I received from Sylvia and Sabiha. I keep thinking I'm dreaming every time I look at it!
Every tiny detail is just perfect! But what makes it so very special is that is was made by two of the best friends I could ever have.
I also received a surprise birthday present from Caterina, my Christmas Swap partner!
Caterina made this absolutely gorgeous paper towel holder (complete with tear off strip!) and hand stitched the most exquisite pot mitt and pot holder.
Caterina also made a matching tea towel and that beautiful apron and those perfect tiny gingham coathangers (I love gingham!).
Just a little while ago Liberty came running in from the mailbox waving an envelope and excitedly saying, "I think you got some dollhouse mail mum!" When I said it was from Singapore she said, "Oh! Susan". (Liberty remembers where everyone lives!) Sans sent me 100 roses!! How wonderful!
And especially for MiniKat here are a few pics from the birthday barbecue in the sun! Every birthday I have hubby says he'll invite everyone around for a barbecue and then I end up spending the day in the kitchen preparing for it...so this year I suggested a lunchtime barbecue, that way I only had to work hard for a morning.
Here's an unusual sight, hubby in the kitchen, lol! Nah, just kidding, he's VERY good at cleaning up!
