Are you ready for an adventure?
Nostalgic, vintage and petite camera.
The lense of this camera is filled with honey colored crystals.
Dangles gracefully alongside with a hand stamped and hand antiqued tag.
'Vous ĂȘtes mon destin' which means 'You are my destiny'.
The combination looks ridiculously expensive and classy, simple and elegant.

Gift Two: Alice in Wonderland
Alice in the Wonderland.
A story.
A definite favorite for fantasy and fairytale fans!

Gift Three: Hope
Every blade of grass, each leaf, each separate floret and petal, is an inscription speaking of hope.
Noglastigic, Whimsical, Romantic.
A collection of three prints.
8.27 inches/21 cm by 5.83 inches/14.8 cm (A5)
All prints are professionally printed on the highest quality textured paper.
The prints will be signed and dated by the artist (me) on the reverse.

    I wish Japonicas a very happy birthday :) Your gifts have given my friends such joy on their birthdays, and I'm sure that there are many others that feel the same way. It's only right that your birthday be as wonderful as the ones that you have made wonderful if not more. Continue on your endeavor of making people happy from these little trinkets that have such a large impact, and I hope that you become even more successful in the future!

    I would have to say that the Insouiant Petite Bird Singing on the Hoop would be my favorite item from the shop--though there were so many I liked, it was so hard to choose! I just like the whole feel of this piece. The fact that the bird is alone on the hoop yet still singing says to me that even if you're alone things will be okay and to just keep on going. And then the locket below it is nice to keep a picture of a special memory that would help you keep on striving and motivated to continue on whatever journey you are going through. The flower as well is a nice touch, contrasting its softness with the rusticness of everything else.

  15. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! :)

    I'd love to win Gift 2.

    I adore Childhood Sweetheart from Japonica's shop.

    I'm now a follower too! :)
