Birthday gifts from Maria

Hello dear readers,

A little late but worth the wait! My dear, wonderful and generous friend Maria sent me
these lovely gifts for my birthday.  The parcel got here later than usual due to some local post

This tiny watch almost blew my mind.

The Nativity kit is to be painted and assembled.  Hopefully before Christmas.

In addition, Maria sent me a whole load of craft stuff, ribbons, flower stems, stickers, etc. etc.

I wasn't idle this week.  Finished several nutshell homes, made some extra gnomes
for Baalatovah's garden, at her demand.  All three nutshells are for 3 wonderful caretakers at my husband's nursing home.

I have to ask Birgit what kind of plant this is.  I never saw such tiny leaves and these, I believe, are not artificial, but dried and painted living plants, perfect for these scenes.

The extra gnomes.

This is one of my clay vases with real flowers. forgot to put a match for size. It's about half a walnut.

I wish you all a lovely Sunday with blessings.


  1. I'm sure your caretakers will love the little gnomes. Happy belated birthday!

  2. How very kind of your dear friend Maria to spoil you so much with lovely miniatures and craft stuff, Drora, enjoy it all!!
    I love seeing these wonderfully made nutshells you made for the caretakers of your husband, it's such a nice and thoughtful gesture. I bet they'll love it too!
    The last pictures with the vase and flowers in it, is so wonderful. These are real life flowers? Wow, and so tiny!!
    Warm hugs, Ilona

  3. Wonderful gifts! The gnomes are irresistible :-)
    Happy Sunday Drora

  4. Happy belated birthday, Drora!
    I am so happy that some of your friends have sent you such treasures to let you know how special it is to all of us that you are here on earth with us!
    The newest nut huts are fantastic! And those flowers in the vase a re impossibly tiny and delicate!

  8. Felicidades Drora, son unos regalitos preciosos. Seguro que los disfrutarás mucho

  9. Darling Maria sent you the most wonderful gifts, I too am in awe with the little watch… and do I have to mention at all that I'm already looking forward to see the nativity finished with that special Drora-touch? ;O) I know by now that the caretakers of your husband will be over the moon with their special gifts they're going to receive from you, your nutshells are awesome and very cute.

    And I'm still in awe that there are real flowers in your beautiful vase - gorgeous. But sadly I can't help you with your question about this lovely green stuff. I have to admit that this did not come from me because I'm usually doing climbers, trees in tiny sizes from loose stuff bought from the model train supply. Sorry I can't help you with this.
