Surprise gifts from Carmen

This can only happen in blogland.  Today, as I sat down to read my email, the bell, at the entrance to our apartments building rang.  It was the post lady, telling me that she left a note for me in my post box downstairs, to pick up a registered parcel at the post office.  She did not know which country it came from.  At that same time I was reading an email from Carmen - http://pekevasion.blogspot.co.il, informing me that she received a surprise parcel from me and that she also sent a surprise parcel to me weeks ago and was warried why it did not reach me yet.  I immediately went to pick up my parcel and sure enough it was from Carmen.

We surprised each other and received our surprise on the same day!

 I am so excited and thrilled.  I hope I was able to get good photos.


These old tins and cans are so perfectly made that you hardly can tell they are minis.
A cool jelly dessert, exactly right for a hot day like the one we are having. Tiny shells from the atlantic ocean in a beautifully sealed jar,  another jar with a tiny flower inside and these beautiful carnations.
Beautiful set of plates.
Gorgeous plates for wall decoration.

I, some weeks ago,  approached Carmen and asked her if there is a possibility that we make a swap.
Carmen agreed but we left it for later on.   Carmen knew what I was interested in but I had to guess what she'd like. I got Carmen's address from a mutual friend.  I hope Carmen is, at least,  half as pleased with my gifts as I am delighted with hers.

THANK YOU CARMEN!!!

We leave on vacation for several days.  No minis for at least a week, but I shall be following your blogs and receive email and there will be someone to collect mail.  It's just too hot in town and we need a breath of fresh air.

The shed itself is almost finished.  I'll be able to show you what was done when I'm back.  It was a lot of hard work.  Cutting a large quantity of wood isn't exactly my cup of tea, especially not on hot days.

A warm welcome to one new follower and thank your for following

Blessings to all

  5. Carmen is a real artist, just as you are, Drora! It sounds like a special miniaturists link you both had, that your gifts arrived as surprises to both of you. Congratulations on such beautiful minis. I love Carmen's tins and cans so much too, and her flowers and plates. You are one lucky woman! I can't wait to see the treasures you sent Carmen. Enjoy your break from the heat. We'll see you soon. xo Jennifer
