Celebrating Christmas again

Hello dear readers,

After almost giving up hope for it ever to come, I received, by our sometimes very slow mail service, a parcel containing these precious Christmas gifts from my dear friend in Ukraine, Tatiana.

As you can see it was worth waiting for and is a good cause for prolonging the Christmas celebrations.

Have a good look at these yummy chocolates, no chance that they'll last much longer.
Lovely tree decorations packed in beautiful handmade card boxes. The awesome little Christmas tree is made of green pipe cleaners!

Not a very good picture, because I enlarged it. It's very tiny with fantastic details and fits a nutshell.

A much better view.

Beautiful roses that only Tatiana is able to make from thinner than paper
cold porcelain.  The roses look lovely in the blue glass vase.

Thank you, dear Tatiana, especially for your friendship.

Making a third shop facade will be my first project in 2020.  The toy and candy were the first and second.

I am planning a jeweler's window.  For a start, I already finished
two silver necklaces like the ones I made 2 or 3 years ago.  I used one scrapbook embellishment and one crashed to tiny pieces turquoise bead.

I wish you, my friends, restful creative days and blessings.


  1. Dear Drora, you've been spoiled by Tatiana's gifts, they are so wonderfully made. No wonder, because she is a super talented miniaturist! Enjoy all.
    Your shop facades are always so wonderful, I can't wait to see the jewelry's window.
    Warm hugs, Ilona

  2. Vaya sustos que nos dan a menudo los de correos y más en en estas fechas pasadas que se relentizan aún más de lo normal. Me encanta como han quedado los collares.

  3. Great gifts! A great project for 2020 with a wonderful start with the necklaces.

  4. Wonderful gifts from a wonderful friend - and I know what I'm talking about. ;O) And it's great that Tatiana's gift finally arrived - well, around here the fingers are still crossed. *sigh*

    A new shop facade - wow, this sounds great, I'm already excited to see more of this new project.


  5. I am so happy that the parcel finally arrived! And I am looking forward to the new jewelry shop! I didn't know that you could smash up turquoise into tiny pieces! How fun!

  6. Wonderful gifts from a lovely friend.
    A new shop? Great!I'm curious to see this shop.
