finally seven

this is the first time i've asked my daughter what she wants for her birthday. as said before, the answer was 'a cat'. we said no. 'ok, a golden silk cat then, and snowflakes falling down on my wooden castle, and a giant wooden rainbow above it'. right. no problem, darling.
so that's what she got. after all, she is the mistress of the house.

20 tiny, tiny snowflakes cut and hung in the wee hours. a huge rainbow silk, not wood, bought and hung. and the kitten from last post.

she had some other really beautiful gifts that i want to show off, all of them (included the rainbow silk not pictured here) bought at the lovely alveslottet (fairy castle). (they finally opened an 'off line shop'! yay!)
this beautifully mirror (also pictured in the previous post)...

some new stuff for her castle (we don't have all the pieces for this, but most of them. bought for her big brother many years ago)...


a large music box with secret drawers, playing this song...



but the most beautiful gift of all was from her brother; a doll he had spent the past months making in school...


i'm really proud of him, as he hates handcrafting. intensely. but you can't tell from looking at this one! this guy will certainly be included in the doll bed with his older siblings.

Happy 7th Birthday! What a magical one it seems to have been! The doll made by brother just makes my heart feel all squeezed.
