Living in a Tower

A most generous gift has mini Apol, mini Pierre, and their mini sheep now living in a tower. Mini Pierre was at first hesitant to call the place home, because it certainly wasn't his name embroidered on the door.However the fine construction won him over, and mini Apol fell in love with the place as soon as she saw the mini apples growing all over.
With much excitement they ran to the top, to look down and exclaim, "Oh, how high!" (Almost everything has this effect on the couple, since they are only about an inch tall.)
They didn't have time to enjoy the view, as there was knocking on the door. Back on terra firma, they discovered their neighbors all lined up, eager for a tower tour.

How cute is my gift from Intres!

The European Street Team held a Secret Santa event for the holidays, where we each got to give a gift to a member and receive one from another, all done in much secrecy, according to the clever organization of Wonder Mitsy.

I was Secret Santa to Gretchen of Chichiboulie. A day after my gift to her arrived, I got mine from Intres. We have never crossed paths on Etsy, except for the times I'd go to her shop to admire her meticulous felt work, so I was floored that she went through a fantastic amount of effort to make my gift!

It's a felt tower with my name embroidered on it, and with little apples on pins sprouting all over. She also sent me a note that I found very sweet. I am so enamored of my little tower. Thank you so much, Intres!
