Look what I got! Thank you, lovely people!


You know how exciting it is
to get parcels in the post?
Wrapped packages,
 full of goodies from nice people?

I got two!

Georgina, 
(otherwise known as Nevermore Dolls


sent me a wonderful surprise pack.

It was full of things to delight
a doll maker's heart.


I'd bought a pendant, 
and Georgina had filled the envelope with
all kinds of lovely things.

Earrings! Paper roses!
Tiny weeny cogs and charms!
Lace and ribbon!

And neat little squares of lovely fabric!
Big roses, little flowers,
soft cotton and dancing skeletons!

A scrap of  the cottage rose fabric
was just perfect for a Marie doll,
and got used straight away. 

Thank you so much, Georgina!



Check out Georgina's new shop,


The other parcel was from Summer,

See that, in the middle?
Yes, that is a chocolate rabbit.
And it's all mine...


The lovely dark purple dalia
found a place in 
Hubby's Steampunk Study.

With the nummy rabbit,
came festoons of lace
and ribbon 
in all sizes and colours.
Beads and ruffles
and sweet chiffon roses.

Perfect things for a dollmaker!


I love these gorgeous paper sunflowers.


Lovely things, just ready to be inspiration for a doll.
I already have plans for that  wonderful red lace.

Thank you so much, Summer!



Thank you both, 
for sending me such wonderful
treasures and trinkets and for understanding
just how precious such pretty little things can be.
