That was Christmas 2013!

Christmas at the shabby cottage.
Another Christmas has flown by!
Liberty didn't finish school until December 19th and then we went camping (hubby's idea!!) for three nights before Christmas...
after that there was no time for anything!

We made a little advent calendar on a tray in the lounge.
Each day of December we added one more tiny thing to the scene.
My three cheeky vintage elves!
I love these little guys, I bought them with Kim.

I spent a lot of time baking in December!

I was lucky enough to find some packets of vintage paper doilies at an op shop.
They make very pretty, quick and simple bunting!

Liberty joking with her Grandad.

Remember how Kim and I made minis so we could buy a doll for Liberty for Christmas...
well here she is!
She's an exquisite Ann Estelle doll by Mary Englebreit.
Liberty and I have always loved Mary Englebreit's illustrations and when she was opening the present and saw the box she kept saying, 'Oh my gosh'!! It was the perfect reaction!

 Happy New Year
from my family to yours!
