Today is a very special day,
as a package from Brazil arrived in the mail.
It included this beautiful custom made Tilda doll from my dear blogging friend Pri at the
What a wonderful and generous package from Pri!
This Tilda already sits on the kitchen shelf;
coordinating perfectly with her surroundings.
Check out her darling little bird and birdcage:
Her detailed boots:
and isn't she pretty with her long locks and Scandinavian inspired dress?:
But that's not all,
Pri also included an angel Tilda as well:
She has light blue gingham wings!
I tried this one in the kitchen, as well, and it was good,
but she really belonged on top of my vanity cabinet in our bedroom,
to watch over us as we sleep:
Angels have a special place in my heart and in my life.
It's in regards to the story of meeting my husband.
(I believe an angel sent him to me, and the angel may have been working with my father.)
I got tears in my eyes when I saw this perfect angel in the package.
The Scandinavian angel now sits next to the Scandinavian plate.
It's a perfect fit.
And just when I thought that the "thoughtfulness and generosity meter" could not go any higher,
it exploded with another item in the package,
I believe this is similar to the Danish Maileg bunny.
Look at that face.
So cute that I can hardly stand it!
I immediately phoned my mother, who is visiting from Norway, and invited
her to come over and see the goodies that came in today's mail.
She was nearly as delighted as I am.
She left with "Bunny" and some yarn, and is setting out
to knit something Norwegian for this lucky hare.
I am so excited I can hardly wait!
Oh, and the thoughts of some crocheted items are also making their way into my head.
I think "Bunny" is going to need an entire wardrobe.
Gosh, I better look up some Barbie patterns.
Perhaps I can modify some patterns from my adorable friend Cogaroo from
her blog: Cogaroo's Crafts.
Bunnies: a good excuse (like we needed one) to crochet!
How very thoughtful of Pri, I can't believe it:
Three Scandinavian inspired dolls!
I love all three of them!
THANK YOU, PRI!
