Maria's gifts

Dear readers,

With the help of our snail mail service, my birthday gifts keep coming prolonging my joy.  This time I received lovely gifts from Maria, one of my best blog friends, who lovingly made me some beautiful
knitted garments.  Maria almost gave hope for the parcel ever reaching me.  It did, and just in time.
On July 20 everything is having to be handed over to the museum.  August 1 is the opening date.

This is the lady shopkeeper of my wool stall (Part of the market).  The jacket and hat
fit her perfectly and are going to the exhibition with her.

The skirt is knitted by me.

And, as if these were not enough, Maria generously added a knitted cot carrier and tea cozy, a little pony and DIY stuff.

This morning, Maria and I drank tea together and lovingly thought about each other, Maria in Ireland and I
in Israel.  This cute thought was Maria's who sent me a tea bag in a lovely bag.  Poke the picture and
look closely at the note on the right side.

Thank you Maria for your gifts and most of all for your friendship.

Not only Maria's gifts are going to the exhibition:

I added the beautiful flowers Birgit sent me to my flower stall and they too will be in the exhibition.
Note the floor.  I hope it looks like a deck floor.  It is 1.78 meter long (Almost 6 feet) made of
large bamboo skewers.  I had to saw about 200 pieces.  Believe me a very boring hard labor job
but the end result looks well enough.

The deck comes in two pieces which are joined by the straw rugs to make one long market.

 I wish you a wonderful weekend and blessings

  1. Hi Drora! I am sure that a lot of visitors will come to visit your miniature market stalls. You have filled them with such wonderful gifts of talented blog friends, so this will be a special exhibition for you :D! You must also have been very patient to saw 200 pieces of large bamboo skewers, but the floor looks fantastic ;)! Hugs, Ilona

Your work for the exhibition is gorgeous, and how fortunate that both Maria and Birgit will have pieces in the show too. I'm so glad that you and Maria could share a cup of tea together. What wonderful friendships blogging gives us! xo Jennifer

  9. It's not the worst thing that mail services do their very best to make the celebration times longer for us bloggers... *LOL* And isn't it always the best thing when you've already given up hope the mail would ever arrive and then it comes... filled with loads of treasures... Maria spoiled you - but what else to expect from her. And I LOVE her idea about sharig a cup of tea thinking of each other. - You've been very busy with the preparations for the fair but the floor was worth the effort. Your stalls look so fantastic - they will take the visitors' breath away for sure!
