I hope your Christmas day was a happy one and that Santa was as good to you as he was to us

Thought I'd just pop on to show you the lovely gifts I received from Rosa in the International Christmas swap. She sent me some extras like this lovely cathedral painting
A Halloween centerpiece made with real plants
...not one but two toys
... a basket filled with the most exquisite mushrooms and blanched asparagus, an angel pyramid
and if that weren't enough ....look at this table runner!! The photo just doesn't do it justiceRosa, thank you so much! I love it all.

And here's what I sent to my swap partner, Natlaie

Just wanted to wish you all the very best wishes for the season. May Santa bring you your hearts desire.
Your fellowship and your comments have made this blog what it is; you keep me posting and striving to do and show my best work. Your blogs are not only a pleasure to read but also a constant source of learning. Together we're shrinking the globe to a common village ...well, afterall we're all into miniatures anyway LOL

I'll be back before years end to show you what lovely things I've sent and received in the international swap; my Christkindl market stall is still a long way from being finished and I'll show you my excuse ...of which I'm exceedingly proud.

May you all have a wonderful day(s) filled with family and friends....

Christmas International Swap

"The time has come," the Walrus said, "To talk of many things":
Remember I needed to make 1 Christmas gift, 1 toy and 1 gift representing autumn for the Christmas swap.

I was a day late sending off my swap gift to Natalie. No less than a day later I got my gifties from RosaMaria Can't show you what I made for Natalie until Christmas and in turn I won't peek at mine.But finally, it's mailed and I can get back to my Christkindl market stall.

Not finished by a long shot but here's what I'm thinking: the bottom shelf will hold boxes of candles, gingerbread, sparklers. Amazing how much time it takes to glue a printie box together. I'll put toys on the middle shelf while the top shelf is for creches, Christmas ornaments, etc. Still need to make gingerbread houses and hearts, more teddies, boxes of cookies; if there's room I have Advent calendars, pop-up books....
