hi everybody!  prepare to be jealous!  i received the most STUNNING package from my super secret swap angel! 

i immediately felt very nervous when i saw the box had a huge dent in it and was clearly marked fragile!  eek!  luckily, every beautiful little bit arrived safe and sound, and boy am i blown away!

the first thing i saw amid the massive amount of styrofoam peanuts, was this:



intrigued, i carefully fished out several packages wrapped in blue ribbon


this lovely weighted toadstool pincushion


and this gorgeous stitched frog

not pictured, a yummy smelling soap and a box of tasty shortbread cookies!  yay!

ok i'm super excited with what i've already opened at this point so now with the greatest of care, i unwrapped the final package.   a completely amazing, fantastic, beautiful work of art


this, my friends, is a tiny treehouse!!!!!!!!!  its about 10" tall



look at the doors and windows, look at the teeny teeny mushrooms!!!



tiny bedroom!


tiny fireplace, tiny mirror!


tiny table!


clearly, i'm in love!  Cheesy  this will forever be treasured and prominently displayed in my home!

my super secret angel did not reveal their identity!  come out, come out, wherever you are so i can properly thank you for this AMAZING gift!!!

That is AMAZING and based on the stitched frog I think I may have a guess at your super secret partners identity.... maybe a certain person who is the featured needlework artist right now.....

You're welcome!   Kiss   Actually your photos are better than those I was able to get here.  It was hard to get the lighting right for the little rooms, yours look better.
