A baby elephant from spain

Hello dear readers,

Don't know about the rest of you my dear fellow miniaturists but I am a very lucky one, having generous and very talented friends from all over the world who send me gifts that make me shed tears of joy, lifting up my spirits and keeping me happy, crafting and posting for almost 8 years.

A few months ago, Isabel won my giveaway.  Isabel thanked me and offered to send me something in return.  In return arrived some of the most precious handmade miniatures I have ever seen.  A tiny adorable crocheted baby elephant.  I cannot imagine how such a beautiful creature came out of regular sewing threads.

I let the baby choose, but she decided she wanted the tiny stroller. Note how beautiful her dress is.

And there were shoes, baby shoes so tiny and adorable, raising a big problem, where to be displayed.  I have an almost 40 years old miniature shoes collection here.

The pair next to Isabel's shoes is made of genuine amber.

And there was a gorgeous crocheted basket full of fantastic dressing table and baby toilet items.

And there was this awesome crate which contained all those marvelous beauties.

THANK YOU DEAR ISABEL! I am not only grateful for having received these precious gifts but also for all your encouraging kind comments on my posts all through these years.

I wish you all a lovely creative rest of the week with blessings.


  1. Oh that elephant is seriously adorable! Reminds me of the Babar elephant books. Maybe you could do a little shoe shop for your wall?
