Regali dalla bella Caterina!

I speak NO Italian so I hope my title makes sense and it's spelled  =)

A few months ago I received a lovely surprise from Caterina. She was thoughtful enough to ask if there was something specific I would like, and to tell you the truth I was quite embarrassed to ask for anything. After a little coaxing the only thing I really, really wanted was one of her books. I love reading in RL and find mini books to be the cutest things ever! So imagine my surprise and delight when I received this in the mail!!!
Not only did I get a book, I got two! She also sent along that tiny bookmark, because of course my mini people need to remember where they left off in their I haven't undone the little packet of postcards and letter because I don't want to lose any. =)  Isn't that basket so sweet and feminine? And come springtime my mini door shall be dressed with that pretty wreath.

Caterina thank you so much!!! I know you always say that feminine and pretty is not your thing, but you have done a wonderful job and have made this girl quite happy!!!
Caterina's blog has a little bit of everything from minis to informative information about certain cultural things. She also has a recipe blog so stop by and take a look!

On a side note: Today I'm another year older and I'd also like to wish all the virgo-librans of the world a very happy birthday!!!!!!!

Happy friday to you!!!
