Big box: lovely loot

There was a parcel waiting for me at the Post Office today. I thought it might have been the business cards I'd ordered for my new role as Assistant Editor of The tiny Times.

But I was wrong: it was something much, much better:

 Care to join me for the unboxing?

 First out of the box was one of her funky retro lounges with a built-in side table. With lots of colour to give me a challenge.

 This was followed by one of her credenzas with a sliding doors. Loving this!

 Next up was the first box of treasures: a picture frame, beads, bowl, selection of fabrics and battery adapter. These will be fun to incorporate into my scenes.

 Three small stripy boxes followed. The first contained a retro TV, a daisy finding and a plate.

 The second, a set of colourful plastic storage containers suspiciously similar to a set I had favourited on Etsy,

 And the third, a trio of her hand-made cushions.

and a fireplace to go with it (how did she know that, even though it's the middle of summer, I have a thing for fireplaces at the moment?)

 And, finally, more battery adapters (reminding me that I really should go buy a soldering iron, follow Mitchymoo Miniatures' instructions and learn to solder).

I'm so glad you like it all. By the way, the T.V. lights up and does the old fashioned fuzzy sound like back in the day when the T.V. stations would sign off for the night. Enjoy!
