the fan was busy before christmas
Just take a look at what my Mom, "The Fan" was up to for Christmas. She really went all-out Martha on me this year. This Santa figure is popped under a bell glass that she landscaped with faux snow (the sparkly stuff you mix with water) and real holly branches. Even now, two weeks later, the holly is fresh and soft. It's like a little microclimate under there.
Then The Fan went through the family archives and found all the bits snips of my childhood... my baby shoe, Topo Gigo, small photos, buttons, my Avon holiday pins, baby bracelet, toys, vintage brooches... and scrapbooked them into two vintage jars she found at the antique mart. How cute are they?
And for my miniature collection, to go in my little house, she brought me this!
In fact, I'd admired these at our local miniature supply store back in the spring. The ironing board was my inspiration for the Club Little House swap. Now I can call this beautiful set my very own.
