“Look at all of these wonderful baked goods!”

A while ago, bbqweasel sent me some handmade miniatures for a trade we had. These are simply AMAZING! I tried to get her to sell them on an Etsy shop, but she’s a bit too busy for that right now!

She sent us so many tiny, intricate goodies!

Kiwi tart, kitty cookies, a tiny bear cookie, Mickey Mouse doughnuts, croissant….

“Good morning, Miss Bibbit! I have a package for you!”
“Oh? I wonder who sent it?”
“It says it’s from a ‘Castor Fibre’ in Hungary.”
“How sweet!”

“What a lovely purse! It’s so fancy!”

*gasp*
“And a necklase with matching bracelet!? She really is too generous!”

“Just the thing for a night on the town! He he!”

Behind the Scenes:

A fellow collector and I committed to a figure trade. A lot of us sometimes puts tiny treasures along with the main swap as a surprise. In my box, there was a tiny white package addressed to Miss Bibbit which contained a tiny orange purse. It wasn’t until my boyfriend was enthralled with it that he made his discovery and exclaimed: “Oh my god, it opens!”.  There inside was the jewelry! We were both blown away by the detail and craftsmanship! Thank you CastorFibre!

Mr. Elephant is part of a project I’m working on. The tusks are Lego pieces that I’m going to use and the pants are from another trade – from a different collector in Hungary, no doubt!

Miss Bibbit’s First Ever Trade! August 15, 2012

A good friend from a long way away (Hungary to be exact!) recently sent Miss Bibbit and I a package as part of a trade!

Let’s see what she sent!

What a lovely carpet! I really like the colors and Miss Bibbit is taken by the beautiful flower design!

Here’s a close-up:

Next are a few new dresses for Miss Bibbit! Each one was made by my friend’s talented mother!

A wonderful light green two piece dress with a matching scarf!

What a cute short skirt! Hyla really likes the pink!

Oooo! Orange is Miss Bibbit’s favorite color….after purple, of course!

What’s that, Miss Bibbit? There’s a surprise package?

Just the thing for the barren walls! Pictures of you and your cousins! And a nice, new dish for your table!

Thank you so much, Bogi!

Keep an eye out for your package, soon, Bogi!
