Shabby mini gifts from my country!

I had a wonderful surprise in the mail the other day. Some beautiful shabby minis from a very clever friend here in New Zealand! I meet Carolyn once or twice a year when there are miniature shows on, as she sells miniatures, she hasn't blogged for a very long time but she does have an Etsy shop.

How cute are these?!!!


Strawberry jelly made by Carolyn and a vintage chocolate tin. Aren't I a lucky girl!


And a perfectly shabby picture!

Thank you Carolyn!

That last pic there in the shabby house is just to tease you...the shabby house is almost ready for the big reveal...just waiting for some very special things that are coming in the mail to finish it off!

  27. Lovely items to receive as a suprise. I have also looked at the etsy store where there are more marvellous things. Oh I wish our UK postalsystem did not charge so much for overseas items!

  28. Such lovely items, Mercedes! I promise I am working on some items for our swap--work and my children's end of year school events keep intervening! I just want there to be a grouping of nice items before I send them! I'll let you know. I have one little surprise which is taking longer than usual but hopefully it will be worth the wait!

  29. Hi Mercedes,
    I've only recently started following your blog (and I am an official follower as from now! LOL)and have already discovered somebody I know: Carolyn! I've met her a few times and I agree, she makes the most lovely things. Didn't even know she had a blog, but will be a follower of hers too from now on. I am looking forward to seeing your shabby house and all those beautiful things in it.
    So long
    Marion
