Our postman brought me an unexpected parcel on friday and when I opened it up, I was thrilled to see one of Joy's wonderful characters inside :)
A couple of weeks ago, Joy had offered a swap for her on her blog and I had emailed her about it and was awaiting the swap decision, so you can imagine my surprise when she arrived on my doorstep :) She is lovely and different to my other characters I have from Joy, in that she has only a hint of a little smile and a quieter looking demeanor. I think she will be perfect as a customer in my Hat Shop.. when I finally get around dressing the inside, but for now she is in The Olde Abbey for Christmas :)
I have yet to give her a name, I am thinking of Flora?
She has 3 bags and a lovely wooden walking stick....
and a lovely knitted waistcoat over her green floral dress.
I love her shoes too :)
This is the outside of the hat shop, I think she will be perfect here and the two extra bags fit perfectly on the window shelf.
This is how I want the inside of my hat shop to look ....
so Flora? would match the era perfectly :)
I am motivated to work on the interior of my hat shop now, I just have to nag Hywel to make my shop shelves.... hee hee
Thank you so much Joy for choosing me for your swap, I just love her and I think her expression and little smile just sums me up at the moment...pondering on the moment :0)
I hope you will love your parcel too and make great use of all the fabrics, buttons and trims :)
