Caterina's Summer Holiday Swap

 This summer I participated in Caterina's Summer Holiday Swap! I love swaps with themes. They challenge me to make things I haven't made before. It was lots of fun!

 For Teruka, I did a surfer girl theme:

From Natalia of Scarlet Sails Miniatures I received:
 She does such beautiful work (check out the slippers on her blog!)  The shoes and picture have found a place in the Daydream cottage.  The vanity tray will sit on the 1930's vanity when the house is finished. Thank you Natalia!

Speaking of Caterina, in the spring I asked her to make me a copy of her "Peter & Wendy" book.  (Both our sons were in productions of Peter Pan last spring.)  It is so cute and detailed.  I love it. Thank you Caterina!

Lucky me!

I was lucky to find out that I won Otterine's giveaway.  This is what I will be receiving shortly:

 Can't wait.  I especially love that little sailboat!

I also want to Congratulate Brae on her 3rd place win in Greenleaf's Spring Fling Contest.  It must have been a really hard decision for the judges.  All of the entries were amazing!  See them all here.

Hope to have some of my own minis to show soon.  My family is off visiting the in-laws (without me.)  So I should get a chance to work on the Glam Townhouse between cleaning my real life house from top to bottom!
