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!


  1. I love both swaps. They are just wonderful. Enjoy yours, as I am sure so will Natalia.
    The book is really great! Hugs

  2. Congratulations to you both. The swaps of both are fantastic. Beautiful book. Hugs Maria
