I am getting ready to put together the Sweet Treats and Roses swap books with Beth tomorrow and luckily two of the books are being mailed to people I am sending gifts to, so I thought I'd slip these into the packages.
The purple flowered pendant with the amethyst drop goes to my buddy, Barb, who also shares my birthday.
She had surprised me with this Fairyland ornament for Christmas and I wanted to do something nice for her. I am keeping it up year round, and hung it from the chandelier above my computer, so I always have my Sugarwings close by.
The other necklace goes to the winner of my 5558th comment prize, my pal, Heather. Having gotten to know Heather through reading her blog and exchanging emails, I think that she will like the colors I have chosen for her pendent.
I'd entered a giveaway on Clarice's blog a couple of weeks ago and won this skirt for the fairy grand baby.
The skirt was made by Christy Misty and she has some adorable pants on her website too. Thanks Christy!
This skirt is a 3-4 and is a bit too large for my little sprite yet, but she'll grow into it.
She loves to play dress up and for now will wear it as a tea party dress.
When I take her up the stairs to her play room, she always hands me something pretty to dress her in. She expects her special play room to be a formal occasion and can't just wear any old thing up there where all her favorite bears and dolls will see her!
And of course, she likes to see others play along. Its a good thing that little Twinks is a happy dog who will do anything for her "litter mate" . These two grew up together and are inseparable.
The wings were a gift from Carol, and I can see they will be getting plenty of use in the future! I think it will be my turn to wear them next.
Finally, I attacked some of the Christmas decor that was still lurking upstairs. While the baby played with the puppy and the dolls, I took down the decorations in her room. Not all of them made it to the box, a lot just got shuffled around the room to live there year round, like these fairies that I put on the chandelier over the day bed.
I don't know which of them came up with this idea, but they both seemed to enjoy it.
Twinkle is a good hearted dog and I think I see lots of doll clothes in her future. I hope she enjoys dressing up as much as the baby does, because I doubt if she'll have a choice in the decision in the next few years.
