Here it is! - The Shabby Bakery

Finally! I can show you what's inside the renovated building. 
It's something Liberty has wanted for a long time - a shabby bakery!
Our wonderful friend Kim Saulter made ALL the food.




This gorgeous counter filled with treats was a Christmas gift from Kim.
Once that arrived I knew the bakery HAD to be created!


That's a photo of my cousin and I (I'm on the right), when I was three years old, having a tea party.



The tea and coffee packets were made by Sabiha.
'Donna Hay Kids' is Liberty's favourite magazine.







And here's the 'Party Room' upstairs.




I've cut doorways in the side of this building so that one day I can build the rest of the house beside it.
Well, that's the plan at this stage!



The bakery isn't entirely finished there are still a few more things to make.
I exhibited it at my miniature club's biennial show a couple of weeks ago and I thought you might like to see it too.
