Gifts in the mail....



I love my local post office. From time-to-time they leave 'special tickets' in my mail box, when I take these to the counter they exchange the 'special tickets' for fabulous parcels that usually come from all over the world....(don't you just love blog land!)....lol!
Today my local post office presented me with a parcel and inside was a sight to behold!!! Lovely, lovely....all hand stitched....fairy's slippers!!! They are not 1:12 scale, they each measure 3 inches from heel to toe. The work in these little slippers is all hand done....wow!....the detail is amazing. I was delighted beyond belief!!!
So a BIG BIG thank you goes out to fellow blogger....I'm sure you can guess who is responsible for such beautiful work....?
Yes....thank you to the ever talented Catherine....you spoil me so much!!!..... Linda x
p.s....I must add, I don't think there is a minute in a single day that is wasted by Catherine!

Catherine said...

Three weeks it took them to arrive! I really thought they were lost forever. I should have sent them with the fairies instead of the post office. LOL
Thanks to Everyone for the kind comments about the little shoes. They are really fun to make.
