Gifts from Ireland

I was lucky enough to win Maria's giveaway =) And last week I got my package:

I thought the knitted dresses looked cute on picture, but they are even better in real life! My daughter took up the green dress, just looking and said (but in swedish): It is totally perfect! And then the same thing with the slippers. She was really impressed by those, and so am I! =)

My doll likes them too =)
Thank you Maria for your wonderful gifts!!

I've had a lot on my mind lately, my mum had surgery again, and had to go to the emergency 2 times after, she didn't heal up well, same thing as last surgery in November. Hope this time will be the last. We have to wait and see.
And I'm not feeling very well myself, but it's nothing bad, but I'll talk more about that later.
A fun thing I done was visiting my brother in Uppsala. Me and my daughter had a wonderful day with my brother. Looked at the big church and walked the streets and finally got to see where my brother lives. =) We had a great day, I only saw a few miniatures in an expensive store, but I manage to buy two small things =) (But the goal with this trip was not to find miniatures, but they make a great memory of this great day)






And finally we got to taste the first bell pepper from our plant. It was delicious =) My little girl has been waiting, and waiting, and she thought this was very exciting. (Me too) =) Hope we get more "home made" vegetables this year =)

Take care
Hannah

      I wish I had a garden to grow all the vegetables I want, but I'm glad I can grow things in my windows and on the balcony =)

  4. Good to hear from you. Maria's prizes and gifts must have left you speechless--she is so talented and thoughtful. Your bell pepper is amazing! Did you grow it in a greenhouse? xo Jennifer

    1. I was very happy to have won such beautiful prizes!
      The bell pepper is a lucky shot =) I just took a seed from a bell pepper and tried growing it in our most sunny window =) And it worked. I really miss a garden, but we have a balcony that gets very warm, so now I'm going to try putting out some plants there too, might work as a greenhouse since it's glass all around =)

    1. No Pelle Svanslös this time either.. =( But last time I was in Uppsala I saw a sign, warning for Pelle crossing the road =) Very funny sign! And my brother said there was a playground named after him: "Pelle svanslös lekplats", but we was a bit too tired to walk over there this time so I never saw it.. maybe next time =)
