Another Christmas gifts parcel from Germany

Hello dear friends,

I just received surprise, belated Christmas gifts from Nina in Germany.  Nina writes very sweet stories about everyday life in a Sylvanian families community.  Nina asked me for my address so she could send me a Christmas card.  Immagine my surprise when the card came packed inside a large shoe box, accompanied by these great gifts.

A tiny, matchbox size spooky scene.

A tiny winter scene

A  book full of Christmas stickers.

Half a pound of delicious mixed chocolates.

A lovely by hand Christmas card.  I admire Nina's beautiful handwriting. 

A lovely postcard from the City of Furth.

Baalatova developed a nasty habit of popping up each time I open a parcel, picking up the best choice, saying "If it's spooky it's mine."   "You can have the chocolates!"

Thank you dear Nina for your generous gifts and most of all for your friendship!


  1. Really can't blame Baalatova! Those are some great gifts.

  2. He perdido la cuenta de todos tus regalos!!! Qué afortunada! Y qué afortunada también Baalatova, jaaaaa... Es una fortuna tener amigos cariñosos y detallistas :) Te lo mereces :) Un abrazo y disfruta tus regalos; quizá aún haya alguno más de camino: aquí en España el correo va con mucho retraso y muchos regalos de Navidad también empiezan a llegar ahora

  3. ! How Sweet of Nina and what a lovely after Christmas surprise for you

  4. Felicidades por esos regalos y por la amistad de Nina. Besos:-)

  5. !!!Qué detalles mas bonitos. Hasta Baalatova está feliz!!!

  6. Preciosos regalos! Hasta Baalatova esperará con ansia al cartero,siempre hay algo que ella quiere!
    Disfruta de tus regalos Drora!

  7. Hello Drora,
    Those are lovely presents. the scene in the box is beautiful!
    Enjoy the chocolates. Big hug,

  8. Well... sometimes decisions can be annoying or even a torture so in a way it's not that bad that there is a new house rule of "If it's spooky it's mine"... it makes life so much easier for you, believe me. There's really no use in having an argument with a witch... *smile* I can only repeat myself, Baalatova is one clever witch with an excellent taste - she secured herself an outstanding piece - and I am able to judge this as you know. Nina spoiled you with the most wonderful things... and I am curious: Will you be able to use the stickers? I am not sure if I will be able to tear this lovely sticker book apart. But on the other hand... these stickers are soooo beautiful. Ah, decisions... always so many decisions... ;O)
