Autumn in Paris...


i did have time to make a lil' 'comfort' surprise for my swap partner in Sofia Barao's 'Autumn Swap'. See other beautiful swap presents here .
i wanted to fill that box with full of sunshine for my partner. this is a 'mini' Eiffel Tower that i created with love. my partner has visited Paris and longs for it as i too long for it since i only can dream of the city of love. i wanted to make a lil' gift box to go with it but alas, time was not on my side. but, i'll make them with my next commissioned work.

this was a joy to make...my lil' shioban fell in love with this one and i promised to make her one...but of course, in PINK!

so sweet...
...la petit tour eiffel
here are a some shots of the wrapped 'comfort' suprises...

oh partner of mine, i'm hoping you'll like it...again, my lil' ones sure thought it was Christmas...




i'm also hoping it gets there in ONE piece...i truly tried to pack them safely...





i also made some mini banana bundt cakes...
la petit tour eiffel +
mini banana bundt cakes topped with powdered sugar...i'm thinking that's a delish combo...
hoping everything arrives to you safely...
ms. postwoman told me that my box should arrive to your sweet home on 11/4/08 Tuesday by 12:00 pm...Enjoy!

Good grief! How beautiful! I can only hope I get you in a swap sometime (but then I'll be intimidated!). Can't wait to see the Marie book and hope nothing too terrible is happening.
