Handmade and Special Presents *~*

My daughter Pippa loved the angel I made her...I was so glad.  I had a little tear to watch her open the parcel and be so delighted with a present I had was very special
I bought my grandaughter Lette an Emily Button doll ...and made her a little sleeping bag to pop her in...

I used a pretty pair of pillow cases that I had picked up on my travels..and then added some prettiness to it...
Emily loved it...
And so did Lette....

Bunny was a hit too..she ended up in the sleeping bag as well...

I shall try to give my self more time next Christmas so I can make a few more presents

Time to put my feet up now...I was a lucky girl too ....

My little family gave my some lovely presents..
Fin bought me two pretty dresses...
I love them .. Thank you Fin xx
Happy New Year to you all !!

  3. Such beautiful, special presents, Thea! I'm sure they'll become family heirlooms in the future, and your children and grandchildren will be sharing them on their blogs ... with great pride.

    Isn't the Granny Chic book fab too!
    ~ And what can I say about your wonderful creations, well as Claire has said already, they are heirlooms for the future, dear friend!I do hope your new year was lovely with your son, I am still under the weather am afraid, but all is quiet after all the festivities, so it is nice to just be, rather than do! Your dresses are wonderful, I love the style...
    Sending kind thoughts, love Maria x

  7. Great Christmas presents both those made and those received!

  8. Such lovely presents - I had the Granny Chic book too. I spy two dresses from my favourite shop and had a beautiful red one to wear on Christmas Day bought in the Brighton store. I always keep the little buttons from their labels. I hope you have a wonderful 2013 and looking forward to sharing your stories. Love your new header by the way. Karen xx

  9. Hello Thea. Love the eye candy on this post, lots of lovely goodies.Your dresses are really pretty, the sort of thing I would choose! I really love your new header too, your dresser is full of gorgeousness! I'm afraid I havent been doing much with my blog, nor reading others either lately, just so busy but hopefully back to normal soon!

  10. Such beautiful hand made gifts - love the sleeping bag that is so cute!

  11. I love the little red footsies. They would keep my feet warm during this weather. I also love your Header and the idea of separating the different colors and displaying them on the shelves. I should try that at my home. I hope the new year is kind to you.
