I am sure there are more paintings to go in the gallery - art that my sister has done and I do not have a picture of yet and also art that she will do in the future. Luckily there is still some room on the walls of the ground floor.
I was very excited to receive a parcel in the mail yesterday from Spain from Carmen of Mi Pequena Evasion. I recently won some miniature items by answering a puzzle on her blog. http://pekevasion.blogspot.co.nz/2013/12/jugamos.html
This is what I found inside the parcel:
The lovely little box and the wonderful mini items I received within it.
This gorgeous little house will look wonderful in Timeless Toys.
As will this picture of a mechanical teddy and the alphabet blocks.
And this beautiful bird plate is so lovely and I love anything to do with birds.
Thank you so much Carmen. I am thrilled with the miniatures received from you. They are so lovely to have within my collection.
Talking about my Timeless Toys project, unfortunately I have had to withdraw from the Undersized Urbanite Contest this year. Unexpectedly earlier this week my husband (the main income earner) lost his job. This means for the time being I cannot justify spending money on miniatures so it will be difficult to meet the May deadline. However, I will still be doing the Timeless Toys project by making use of items I already have so keep an eye out for future posts. I'm sure I can make many toys from bits and pieces I have lying around in my craft room.
These cute little resin bears are waiting to be housed in the Toy Shop. I managed to pick them up second hand recently. Aren't they cute. They are only 2cm high.
Just a reminder about my giveaway. It closes on Saturday 1 February.
I said that if I reached 100 followers before closing date I will come up with a second prize. I now have 95 followers so that is looking very likely. I will have to put my thinking cap on.
Have a great weekend.
