Miniature delights....!



These are the exquisite little slippers that Rosanna made and presented to me when I went to visit her in Genova. To say they are perfect is an understatement!....the detail is amazing and the needle work is just stunning! Of course they came in their own lovely little shoe (slipper) box.....aren't they wonderful???
I have already said 'thank you' to Rosanna...(many times),but..."Thank You!!!!" X

When I was in Paris I was lucky enough to go to 'Paris Creations'....I didn't plan my trip around the show, it was just pure chance that it was on while I was there. I bought a few pretty items... the 3 urns are made by Elisabeth Causeret (Italy) and the little box filled with sugar coated almonds in by Betty Sartorio (France). The darning mushroom, cotton reels & scrubing brush, I bought a few days early at "Poupee Tendress"........I also bought lots & lots of Pascale Garnier's beautiful flower kits. It was a great day!

Lastly....this pretty little dress is made by Lea Frisoni.....I bought it from her shop at Montmartre.
Now that I am home, I hope to be able to set to work on this 'new project'....I bought all the windows while in Paris.....so I guess there is nothing to stop me now!!
You may have noticed that I changed my 'header picture'....(I hope you like it!) This one I took while in Grasse in the south of France, plus I have spent many hours adding new photos (gadgets) to either side of my blog....(I kept some old favorites of course).....enjoy!

Linda, those little slippers made by dear Rosanna, are exquisite. I call Rosanna "The Queen Of The Needle" and have so much pleasure showing everyone, the tiny little Pillow that she made for me. Your other purchases are beautiful. I for one, am really looking forward to seeing the new Miniature project..xxx
