Julia's July Gertie Swap!


I was the lucky one to be chosen by Julia this month for her July Gertie swap! http://bearcabinminiatures.blogspot.com/

Julia made the most beautiful owl cushion to go on the pretty little resin corner chair which I thought would be perfect for my own good witch Gertrude.
Also on offer was this fabulous little red dragon and he has found his perfect place already in the potter conservatory amongst the mandrakes and plants!

Thankyou Julia for the oppurtunity to take part in this months swap and for the wonderful goodies!
Julia very kindly put in wonderful gifts for Lola and Emily for their projects which they will show off themselves, so everyone was happy! Lola has been super busy at school so she is thrilled to get a break in a weeks time to be blogging again and showing off many treats she has got!

On reading Julia's blog recently she posted that she had decided to change the name of her witches cottage from 'Owl Cottage' and therefore had the sampler she had made up for sale!! Yipee, I didnt have a name for Gertrude's cottage and always loved that sampler and frame so I treated myself and bought it for Gertrude and now she proudly has it displayed in her bedroom!

So a huge hug to Julia and hopefully the minis I made for her own Gertie and also for her wizard store will be with her tomorrow. I forgot to take photos in my haste to get them off in the post so hoping Julia can get some good ones and likes what i've made for her and Gertie in return!!

Roll on the next swap and I recommend to you all to take part in such a fun swap!
