Gingerbread Decorations

Ginger Bread Decorations

My Kitchen area is the first thing I decorate each year….

because……I store most of my Christmas decorations in the kitchen cabinet over the fridge ….so they are very very easy to get to……

I just love Gingerbread Men….Woman and Children included….  🙂

Yes, I know it’s January and I should be posting stuff about the New Year but……I had to share this with you…… I just finally got the time to post this….and yes it has to do with Christmas….A Lovely Christmas Tea Party Mama Betty gave at her house just before Christmas.  This would have been my last doll class for the year before the Holidays.  Instead of a doll class, she surprised me with this lovely Christmas Tea Party with the Bebe’s.

Only a selected few were invited…..

These are some of her smaller Bebe’s.  Aren’t they adorable…..  🙂

She also surprised me with a very special gift…..

She gave me…..

KARL!!!!

Yes, you heard me right….That cute little fellow in the blue sailor suit in the picture above…..

I still can’t believe she gave him to me…..It’s really a big deal when a doll artist gives one of her dolls away….

A BIG THANK YOU to Mama Betty….I will always cherish him……
