Etienne, who usually rules supreme in the kitchen actually left him in charge and she, looking tres chic, found time to do some last minute shopping.
Sylvie, already in trouble for wearing Suzette's fur trimmed red boots without permission, stops by the kitchen and sneaks a cookie but Chef pretends not to notice. Happy little Sylvie is his favorite.

The Twins, Dori and Dior, can't wait until Christmas so they spend a big part of each day gathered around the tree shaking presents and trying to guess what's in them or asking, "Is it Christmas yet?".
Suzette, always the Fashionista, looks very lovely indeed in her wine colored silk dress trimmed with vintage lace. This is the gift we made for our BSC exchange partner. Suzette really didn't want to let it go and she certainly looks pretty in it but I finally convinced her that I would make her something even prettier if she would just take it off and let me mail it. LOL! Now you know she won't let me forget that.

Today was a really big day for Hitty Annabelle. She decided it was time to do some shopping so she got up very early and traveled the 45 miles from Norfolk to Williamsburg. She visited many shops and found wonderful treasures. At the end of the day, her cart full, she hurried home, tired but happy. Tomorrow she and Hitty Becca would start decorating.

Today is called "Black Friday" because it's the first official shopping day of Christmas and the merchants are fervently hoping to have a huge profit when the day is done. Here at Manior de Bleuette, or Bleu Manor as we fondly refer to it, we decided to have a Tea Party instead of shopping. Some of the girls pulled out their pretty Christmas dresses and spent the morning primping. They also found the Christmas tea set and a few other decorations to make their little party a fun and festive affair. Even Miss Kitty joined in.

My little Daisyette, a Kestner reproduction by Suzanne McBrayer has a darling new play dress and mop cap. The dress and cap were made from from a pattern by Londonberries which is based on the Lettie Lane Paper Dolls from 1911. The dress is made from a two toned pink cotton print with solid white collar, pockets and belt and the mop cap is made from the same white and trimmed with eyelet lace and pretty pink Forget-Me-Not's.

Isabelle, a 6/0 by Suzanne McBrayer
Here you will see Teddy and Isabelle with their little wagon of Christmas goodies. Teddy is wearing LSDS 1910 #15 and Isabelle is wearing LSDS 1908 #26. I think they look very Edwardian.
