One of my favorite movies as a kid was The Sound Of Music and I have to admit that raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens, and brown paper packages tied up with string are still among my favorite things. So I was quite excited when this package I had ordered from Etsy arrived today all the way from Milan Italy!
And when I unwrapped all that scrumptious brown paper I found all these cute as a button boxes inside tied up with ribbons. Such a nice touch!
Aren't they sweet?
I love opening parcels!
And they each have a little logo on them.
Here's what was inside the wee boxes. I bought them from viliaminiature's shop on Etsy. These are all unfinished except for the trays.
A pretty little table and two adorable shabby trays.
A nice little hutch. It even has glass in the top cupboards.
And all the doors and draws open too.
A charming display cabinet. With a real glass window too.
And yes, the door opens.
Of course when I was trying to take the pictures for this blog entry Bethell remembered that brown paper is also one of her favorite things as well. (Whether it's on a package or not.)
After several removals from my piece of paper I managed to relocate her to another piece. (Then as soon as I finished taking the pictures and went over to use the computer she moved as well to sleep next to me on the window seat!)
Here is the lovely bookshelf.
And the mini set of draws.
And the tiny trays up close.
Aren't they all so beautiful! I haven't decided how I will decorate them yet. You will have to wait and see!
Thank you Alma and Lia for the wonderful service and the outstanding miniatures.
Here's a funny picture of Bethell to finish off with. I caught her mid-yawn...
Okay, I couldn't really finish with that. Here she is looking normal (she is sitting in the box that my doll house kit came in.)
Ciao. Love Amy.
