The fabulous Fabiola: Regali da Italia

I hope the translation is correct! ;)

Hello mini folk of the globe! I hope wherever you are that you are not frozen, like we have been here in the US. Now when I say frozen I mean yesterday in NY they had a winter warning advisory stating a -15 below zero wind.

So you figure exposed skin in this weather can get frostbite in 15 minuets...in NY not Antarctica! Keep warm, snuggly, inside and mini crafting!

I wanted to show you the swap Fabiola and I set up around Christmas. Fabiola is a wonderful lady who always leaves encouraging messages and kindness on our blogs, I am sure most of us know her and for those who are just finding out you are in for a treat!
 
Fabiola sent me a amazing array of beautiful and wonderfully crafted goodies as you can see. These signs for a tea and cake shop are just beautiful and are inspiring me to create another café style shadow box.
 
As you can see this love towel..aww! and wonderful clock would fit in with the scene as well!
Faby also made these fabulous little slippers, a set for him and her.. they are sooo fine and perfect. As I look at my real life ratty slippers *lol*
 
Fabiola has not gotten mine yet but when she does I hope they are as wonderful as these fine gifts I received! Thank you so much Faby! Your friendship and encouragement are always a wonderful gift and these little wonders you sent just add to how fabulous you are!  Big hugs!!

  2. Oh my goodness! Faby's gifts are wonderful! I love those tiny slippers--so perfect! Your tiny desserts are exquisite. I love Valentine's Day so have lots of Valentine minis I could make and send you. Would you consider doing a a tiny (as above!) Valentine swap with me, and I'll send much more for all of the other gorgeous gifts you've sent me? :-) xo Jennifer

  9. Fabiola's work is indeed wonderful and you are very lucky to have received some of her lovely miniatures. I am sure Fabiola will be equally pleased with what you have sent her. Swaps are wonderful, especially within the sharing and caring minis community we find ourselves in where it is so lovely to share our interest with others.
