A Special Gift!

A new follower and friend from the UK, send me a very special gift, one of David Edwards ivory ladies combs. Words can't quite describe how exquisite and fine this is, I marvel at the perfection of the cuts between each of the teeth of the comb, my photos certainly doesn't do it justice.

The comb on top of my sewing table.

A close-up, the comb is only 19mm (3/4") long.

Thank you for this really special gift, Anna!

David Edwarts is a brilliant miniaturist.
I find it all very very nice what he makes.

I like also the sewing utensil(s). Is is magnificent.
I still have a whole lot to buy in the future haha.

I know!! his combs are just little jewels, as are so many minis made by David.
I own a tiny thimble and some household items made by mr. Edwards, and sometimes I carefully unwrap them and hold them in my hand just to sit there and be in awe.
You lucky girl, congrats!!
