Gifts and some shopping :)

First of all my little critters arrived from Kris, they are just FABULOUS! Thank you so much for doing them, they are my little treasures :) The pics aren't the best as I had to take them through glass.
The mouse has moved to the greenhouse to wait for the witches house to be built :)
Then my lovely witchy stuff from Sonya arrived, thank you so much, they are wonderful :) Mr. Poe was a bit jelous about them so he went and stole the bookstand to his house :D I'll post a pic of it later on :)
Then my shopping from Nicky arrived, aren't they fab?

Don't know yet where the dragon is going, but had to have it :D

And last but not least my suprise package from Terry arrived - I'm just speechless Terry! These minies are fabulous and there are so many of them!

Aren't they fab??? Terry had translated the descriptions of all these traditional Tuscan food in Finnish :) I'm getting so hungry just looking at them as I LOVE Italian salami, ham and cheeses :) And those pelargoniums are wonderful :) Thank you SO, SO MUCH Terry, I'm really happy and touched by all these wonderful minies :)

And of course I had to put them to my Toscana kitchen right away, it's looking quite wonderful with all this food in there :)

The garlic is from London, my daughter brought it to as I've been wanting some to my kitchen :) She brought some other minies also, I'll post pics of them later on.

And as you can see, I'm alive after the party, didn't throw up, but had an awful headache for a couple of days but now it seems it's not from the booze but I'm having a summer flu, feeling quite tired all the time. But I've been building Poe house today, got some lights in there and other stuff, I'll take some pics tomorrow :) And I hope that my flower swap friends are patient, I'm doing the swaps, but slowly, sorry for that :)
