A Parcel for Liberty!

For some reason the mail didn't arrive until very late in the afternoon yesterday (it's usually here in the morning). But when it finally did arrive there was one VERY happy little girl! There was a parcel all the way from England with her name on it.

The parcel was full of goodies from Patricia at Papillon Bleu. Patricia had told us she was going to make a doll for Liberty but she sent some other goodies too! A sweet little French Strawberry Shortcake notepad and some of the most gorgeous stickers!
The fabulous Laduree bag was for me! Liberty thought it was very funny that I was just getting a bag! But oh, what a bag!


Let me introduce you to Ruby. If only you could see her in person. She's simply beautiful, an absolute work of art, all handmade and painted by Patricia. And she's tiny, just 10cm (5 inches) tall! With a 'real' nose and the softest hair.

Liberty was also lucky enough to receive one of Patricia's Petit Theatres. The curtains even open and close!

Liberty asked if she could have some of the little dolls I made so they could perform in the theatre.

Merci Patricia! Liberty feels very special to be part of your wonderful whimsical world!
Make sure you pop over and visit Patricia and tell her how clever she is!


  1. I am lucky enough to have one of Patricia's dolls too- they are full of magic! Your tiny dolls look so perfect in the theatre! Like they were meant to be together! Liberty has the sweetest smile in the entire world :) have fun with Ruby Liberty!!!

  2. What a lovely gift, for both of you!!!

  3. Patricia certainly is very clever, and very thoughtful too, what beautiful gifts. Ruby has found a wonderful home with Liberty and I adore the little theatre too, your dolls look very at home in there! Kate xx
