Maria's Christmas Gifts

Hello dear readers

From the moment we met online there was a click between Maria and me. Maria is one of the kindest,
considerate and gentle persons I know. Maria is also one of my best friends now.  Twice a year, on birthdays and Christmas we exchange gifts.  This time, Maria absolutely spoiled me.  I was scarcely able
to shoot and catch everything she sent in one photo.

A gorgeous dressing table.

A beautiful tiny angel with two candles on a tray. A cute little Christmas tree.

A pretty angel made by Maria, a wooden giraffe toy and, of course, the Irish symbol.

A tiny doll's doll which came dressed in the green knitted dress.  I put the dress on a bigger
doll and shall later on make a dress for the tiny one.  I really love the tiny doll.

A garland of lights for a miniature tree. It was too late to use it this year.  My
Christmas market and tree were already on display at my grand daughter's home.

Another very delicate knitted dress and matching blanket. A lovely butterfly, tiny bells and
cute sock.

Here are all except the chocolates.

Wow! I've never, ever dreamed I'll one day get to eat a chocolate Santa Claus.

This is also a goodbye 2013 post. It's hard to believe how fast it's gone.

Hugs and blessings

  3. Beautiful gifts from one of the most outstanding blogladies we can find around here... Your My-very-first-chocolate-Santa-experience made me smile - those guys really belong to our Advent time... and in my family we only kill them after Christmas *grin* And believe me - Maria has chosen one coming of the best chocolate families that exist... it's Niederegger when it comes to marzipan and Lindt when talking about chocolate and pralinés... - Best wishes for the New Year to you and your family!
