I have to share this present with you! My friend came this morning, (she's the other member of our miniatures club) and gave me a lovely, detailed, handmade birthday card and a teeny box. Of course I just love teeny boxes because they're bound to hold one of my favourite things - a miniature! The box was beautifully decorated with fabric and ribbon and lined with embossed paper. (As you can tell I'm one of those people that plays with the box rather than the gift!). Anyway, inside was a fabulous, hat made in subtle mauves, decorated with silk ribbon, fairy lace and roses. I loved it and my friend said 'Well you should, it was in your favourites on Etsy'. How brilliant is that? Here is the hat.
I was so amazed to see the hat and learn that Oly had gone and looked at my Etsy favourites, knowing that I'd just love my present!
Later she took me out to lunch, we did a bit of shopping and then back to mine for a 'play' in my work room. It was a lovely way to spend a birthday with my kind and thoughtful friend. Thank you so much Oly x.
