My latest creation

Some months ago I recieved this "weather station " as a gift from my dear friend Mette.
She sends me the most wonderfull gifts.
I took it apart and all the inside-out, paintet it ,filled it with beautifull things,
Closed it up again,
and then I used napkin pieces on the outside .

I like this little story told inside behind the glass.
Dear friends have a wonderfull week-end all
