Birthday gifts from Maria

Hello dear readers,

A little late but worth the wait! My dear, wonderful and generous friend Maria sent me
these lovely gifts for my birthday.  The parcel got here later than usual due to some local post
errors.



This tiny watch almost blew my mind.








The Nativity kit is to be painted and assembled.  Hopefully before Christmas.



In addition, Maria sent me a whole load of craft stuff, ribbons, flower stems, stickers, etc. etc.
THANK YOU DEAR MARIA, I AM BLESSED TO BE YOUR FRIEND.

I wasn't idle this week.  Finished several nutshell homes, made some extra gnomes
for Baalatovah's garden, at her demand.  All three nutshells are for 3 wonderful caretakers at my husband's nursing home.





I have to ask Birgit what kind of plant this is.  I never saw such tiny leaves and these, I believe, are not artificial, but dried and painted living plants, perfect for these scenes.



The extra gnomes.




This is one of my clay vases with real flowers. forgot to put a match for size. It's about half a walnut.



I wish you all a lovely Sunday with blessings.

    I love seeing these wonderfully made nutshells you made for the caretakers of your husband, it's such a nice and thoughtful gesture. I bet they'll love it too!
    The last pictures with the vase and flowers in it, is so wonderful. These are real life flowers? Wow, and so tiny!!

  10. Darling Maria sent you the most wonderful gifts, I too am in awe with the little watch… and do I have to mention at all that I'm already looking forward to see the nativity finished with that special Drora-touch? ;O) I know by now that the caretakers of your husband will be over the moon with their special gifts they're going to receive from you, your nutshells are awesome and very cute.

    And I'm still in awe that there are real flowers in your beautiful vase - gorgeous. But sadly I can't help you with your question about this lovely green stuff. I have to admit that this did not come from me because I'm usually doing climbers, trees in tiny sizes from loose stuff bought from the model train supply. Sorry I can't help you with this.

    Hugs
    Birgit
