Eloisa's Gifts

Hello dear readers,

Two and a half months ago, dear Eloisa sent me by mail a parcel containing her beautiful, handcrafted gifts.  Eloisa wanted it to be a surprise but my Israeli post services prevented the surprise by holding-on to the parcel and keeping it in who-knows-where until today. This is a happy ending to a most anxious, nerve stretching episode. To think of what almost might have been lost makes me want to cry.  Eloisa's work is gorgeous! I wish my photos justified the true beauty of the items.

It's difficult to see how tiny but perfect the snowman actually is.

The bottles are beautifully labeled with lovely stoppers. The heart-shaped bottle is my favorite. It has a lovely transparent stopper. The Eiffel tower candle holder is just perfect, what a great idea!

This photo absolutely doesn't justify the real way and colors of the items. 

I've seen the flowers before on Eloisa's blog, but I never imagined how gorgeous they are. They are way too delicate for my iPhone camera to catch. 


Today, for me turned out to be my lucky one. It was our turn to visit my husband for half an hour. The people whose visit was after us didn't arrive and we could stay on for the whole hour.  We met in the garden and although we had to keep a distance between us and wear face masks, it was still lovely to be together.

I wish you, dear readers, a lovely weekend.  Stay safe and healthy!


  1. What a great relief it must be for both you and Eloisa to know that her package has safely arrived and is in your possession! Sometimes there is no reasonable explanation to account for such long delays but now that the wait is over, you are going to have so much fun playing and finding homes for the Wonderful assortment of tiny treasures Eloisa has made for you! I look forward to seeing where and how you will be using them in your future scenes! :D

  9. Entiendo tu alegría porque yo también he sido afortunada y he recibido los paquetitos de Eloísa en alguna ocasión :) Preciosos y siempre repletos de pequeños tesoros. Dicen que bien está lo que bien acaba y así ha de ser... felizmente lo has recibido como felizmente todos empezamos a volver a esa vida maravillosa que siempre hemos tenido y que ahora toca reconquistar. Celebro vuestro reencuentro familiar de corazón; yo también he podido volver con los míos y ha sido una bendición. Un abrazo muy fuerte, Drora

  10. Gracias a tí Drora, por ser una fiel seguidora de mi blog.
    Es estupendo que hayas podido pasar más tiempo con tu esposo, habrá estado muy contento.

  11. The lucky fairy has indeed been very kind to you - right she did because you truly deserve to be spoiled! I'm glad to hear that the story of Eloisa's gift package had a happy ending after days of woe. I was truly reminded of us two worrying about your Christmas gifts... Eloisa's gifts are beautiful treasures, so good you finally received them, it would have been such a pity if they had been lost.

    And what happy news about the extra time for you and your husband - the most wonderful gift of all.
