"I didn't know you were expecting anything from Germany".
I wasn't, but knew immediately that it must be from my wonderfully thoughtful friend Birgit!
I wasted no time opening what I knew would be a heap of awesome treasures!!!
An ornately decorated handmade card featuring Fluby and Rosey!
A box of delicious genuine German marzipan. Fluby and Rosey are even on the label!
A 2020 calendar featuring monthly photos of Birgit's incredible flower garden presented by Fluby and Rosey. Just look at August's hydrangeas! So beautiful!
There were also four containers filled with tiny treasures...
The first box had a note that said "We're magical vegetables looking for a place in a shop run by a very friendly witch". Of course they meant Fiona the friendly witch and the Autumn's Pantry shop! They are absolutely charming additions to the gang and when introductions were made this morning all became fast friends! What incredible characters they are, and what a talented maker they have! Just look at those mushrooms!!!
The next tiny box had a note and a gift that reveal just how thoughtful and generous our friend Birgit really is! So long ago I had mentioned wanting a radio for the Storybook Cottage kitchen, and she remembered! And she sent this perfect little Playmobile radio! A tiny boom box in a tiny box! It comes apart so that each of the features can be painted individual colors. I can't wait to paint it to match the kitchen! Yippee!
And when I opened this box I squealed! Three tiny perfect snowman ornaments! A gift for the Sweet Christmas Cottage's tree!!! Will you look at those tiny carrot noses?!? The scarves?!? These are just too precious! Thank you, Birgit!!! I can't wait to have a minute to play later so I can get them on the tree!
And in the last box - what a bonanza!!! There are tiny wonderful things to use as decor pieces and so many beads and baubles to make things with! Those gingerbread guys are definitely joining the snowman in the Christmas cottage!!! The little horse! The green clock! The happy duck! The succulent in a mug! So much fun!!!
It was such a wonderful surprise to receive these gifts of love from my lovely friend Birgit! Thank you so much, Birgit! Your thoughtfulness has made my day and I love having treasures made by your creative hands in my dollhouses!
I'd be really surprised if any of you did not know who Birgit is or already follow her magical blog BiWuBären on the Blog. She makes the most incredible tiny bears, and two of them, Fluby and Rosey, write for Birgit regularly about the happenings in Birgits tiny world. There are so many wonderful things to see and so many delightful characters who make regular appearances. If you haven't already, I highly recommend you head over and read her blog from cover to cover! You'll be delighted with her wit, amazed by her creativity and charmed by all her little friends!
Thanks again dear Birgit! You are truly a treasure!
