Thank You Alicia & Mollie!!

My Secret Santa gift from Alicia and Mollie from The Red Headed Mare is HERE and oooh boy was it worth the wait. I literally squealed with delight (like a child) when I opened the box up to find this:

introducing: Mini Izzy!!!!

It's a PORTRAIT of Isabel!! In MINIATURE!!!!!! 

And Alicia - the attention to detail is sooo perfect! The blaze shape, and rear socks... Plus the adorable dished face and curled ears!!! Not to mention the gorgeous flowing mane and tiny bow over her tail :)



Naturally, Isabel was flattered at the representation, and proceeded to spend some quality time introducing Mini Izzy to proper princess etiquette.

Thanks so much Alicia - this little horse is stinkin adorable - and officially our new mascot!! 

Thanks also to Tracy from Fly on Over for hosting the Equestrian Blogger's Gift Exchange! 

Merry Christmas :)
