Gifts from Spain!

I received these beautiful gifts in the mail from Eva. Eva had suggested we do a birthday swap because our birthdays are on the same day.
Eva told me she re-did the chair and mirror because they were shiny gold, now they look perfect! The pram is for me to change and that teddy bear was made from Fimo by Eva.

Look at that tiny package (I love miniature mail!) and that fabulous teeny weeny heart!

But I think this teensy giraffe might just be might favourite thing. Eva has painted it so spectacularly. Look at it's happy little face! It's going in another of my projects which I'll have to show you soon...
Also in the parcel there were some very sweet Spanish treats called 'Polvores' which Liberty devoured before I had a chance to photograph them, that girl truly loves sweet things!
Thank you Eva!



  1. What lovely gifts!!

  2. Wow!! More wonderful gifts in the mail, they are all great but if I am allowed a favorite....I love the 'miniature mail parcle'.
    Enjoy, Linda x

  3. Such fabulous gifts, Merce! That teensy mail is wonderful! Eva is a real talent with painting small stuff. I agree that the pull toy is amazing. I also liked how she had "shabbied" the other items. Very very nice, Eva :).

  4. Felicidades a ambas por tan hermosos regalos. Eva es encantadora y me alegra saber que a Liberty le gusten los polvores, son muy tipicos en Navidad en España. Besos.

  5. I am so glado that you like it and that Liberty have enjoyed the polvorones.
    It has been a pleasure to do this stuff thinking about you. The tiny girafee is not difficult to do, just balsa wood, paint and patience ;)
    Un beso
