Swap with Alisha

I simply love swaps. Who doesn't?  It's so exciting to wait for a  parcel to come, open it and find mini treasures.  There is also the anxciety of waiting for your gifts to be opened by your swap partner and see if he or she will like what you sent.  Next to the delight of winning a giveaway this is the best prize.

This swap is with Alisha.  Our parcels almost collided in the air.  I am being totally spoiled with the treasures I received.  You be the judge.

A beautiful chicken soup preparation board. I saw the chicken soup at Jennifer's blog and dared ask Alisha to make me one. I love it. I also love the vegetable basket and breads.
Isn't this pitcher gorgeous? Alisha's work is incredible.

Here is some half scale food.  A stunning cheese board. Half scale cheese and pear plate.  These are perfect for the Bavarian rooms.

Candles. So realistic!

A beautiful basket with vegetables, all hand crafted by Alisha.  The breads are half scale but can also be full scale buns.

For this beautiful bird bath (With "water") I need to make some tiny birds.

Beautiful Chrismas tree ornaments. I love them and I love the little box too.  They'll be wonderful for my Christmas stalls.

I have no words (in English) enough to describe my delight and admiration for receiving all these beautiful hand crafted treasures.  THANK  YOU ALISHA!!!

Next month I am celebrating one more birthday.  I am preparing a new giveaway for you my dear readers and friends. I shall probably announce the date and post a photo soon next week. Please stay tuned.

I have no more complaints about our weather here.  We enjoy beautiful spring days.  We are spending a lot of time outdoors, going to the beach collecting seashells.  I wish it could stay this way for a long time.

A wonderful weekend to all my followers and friends.  Blessings to all!
