Beautiful Flowers!

Look at my display of beautiful flowers!

As a result of a swap I now own all these!
They were made by the very talented Cristina Diego (minisdecris) who asked me if I would like to exchange some minis with her. She has been so generous, sending far more than I could have hoped for and they are all so lovely!
Thank you Cristina - what a fabulous way to start the week!

Sofa Bed

Having been tortured at the dentist on Tuesday and having to return tonight I wasn't feeling very happy until the post lady came with a big box!
It was no surprise as I had been waiting impatiently like an excited child because Kaisa was sending a sofa bed she made with her scroll saw as a swap to me.
You must have heard my screams of delight when I saw it, even better than the photos on her blog. She not only sent my sofa bed but a tiny pack of  four pots of yoghurt she has made AND a cupcake preparation board! This was really a surprise! It went straight into the bakery after I took the photos.

My part of the swap is to make bedding for Kaisa to put on her sofa bed. I shall start today!

Thank you so much, Kaisa, you really cheered me up with your lovely miniatures.

Family Time

So much has happened the past few weeks that I'm almost unable to remember it all!
I went to England for three weeks and stayed with an old friend in Surrey for the first week where we shopped, ate and talked too much! Then two weeks visiting my mother, my children, other friends and of course my darling grandsons who celebrated their first birthday at the end of February. You will notice they don't look alike!
I stayed with the newly-weds, my daughter and husband who made me very welcome, cooked me wonderful meals and my daughter brought me a cup of tea in bed in the mornings! My daughter will miss me - she always does, her husband will miss that I'm not eating all his muesli now!
As much as I enjoy spending precious time with my family and I miss them all when we're apart, I am always so pleased to be home again and looking forward to my next visit!

Give Away Winner!!

No doubt you thought I'd forgotten to do the draw today! I got back from my trip last night and was so very busy today that I wondered whether I would have time but I'm pleased to say that I have and there's about 20 minutes to go before midnight so still got it done on March 7th!
Thanks to all my loyal followers who left a message and a big hello and welcome to the fifty new followers!
Here is the bag of names
After a good shake I pulled out the winner..........
 CONGRATULATIONS!! Please send me your address to receive your gift.

It seemed very mean to give just one prize when there were over 60 contestants so I picked three more!
Please send me your addresses.I'm sorry to those who were not picked but thank everyone for their kind comments and for reading my blog. It's wonderful to know I have so many mini friends!
I'm pretty tired now so will say 'good night' for now,
See you in your blogs!

Wonderful News!

I have to take back everything I said about dishonesty!
I've had the good news that after a journey of several weeks my first shipment to the US arrived! A few days later I was delighted to hear that my second shipment also arrived!!
Fearing the worst I had made refunds to both customers but am delighted to know that a delivery service does exist from Spain to America - it just takes 5 to 6 weeks!

A big thank you to everyone who has left a message for my Give Away. So many!!
Bye for now X
