A gift from Carmen in Spain

Hello all,

Yesterday I received Carmen's prize for reaching 12,000!!! comments in her blog and me being the lucky one to make it.   Carmen's blog, with over 1000 followers must be one of the most popular  in Spain.  No wonder,  this charming lady is a great miniaturist and one of the most generous persons on the blogs.

THANK YOU DEAR CARMEN! I am very happy with my gifts.

A good and inexpensive place to shop for miniatures are the earrings shelves in pop stores.

A few days ago I "raided" one and look what finds.

They are all stud earrings but I can cut off the studs.

Spiders for the witch house.



The back pieces are also very useful.

Skulls with diamonds.  Don't laugh, I've seen real Inca skulls with precious stones.

Very little progress with Baalatova's home.  I'm afraid she'll have to linger on her way because
There's no chance I'll finish it before Halloween. Time flies.....

My blog will celebrate its fifth anniversary at the end of November and there will be a giveaway to prepare.
Also, I have to prepare Advent swaps with 4 lovely online friends as well as Christmas gifts for
two more lovely friends.  Our post services are a bit slow lately.  I'll need to send the parcels
earlier than usual.  On top of it all, the next local miniaturists meeting is scheduled for early November, which means another swap to craft.

I won't forget to let poor Baalatova have another adventure before Halloween.

I wish you all a lovely autumn weekend and blessings.
