Christmas at my little Adeline Cottage

This is my Adeline Country Cottage, she is so cute, Carn't wait for my casement window's to go in and to put the shutters back on, for all you that dont know, the street we live on is called Adeline Street, so I named my shop after her.WELCOME.... open the front door and come in side....

I thought I'd try my hand at a christmas sign to hang outside my door. I am proud of it.


















What I love sooo much about my little Adeline is the sound of christmas music playing every day from the first day of december, while decorating my home. Didn't go all out this year as been quite busy, which for me is quite sad.
the mosiac on my kitchen dresser took me about 2-3 weeks, in 30 degree heats, my face was dripping with sweat, not a very nice look, all my prettys slide of my face LOL. Oh can you see the pink cake on the kitchen dresser, I make thoughs as well, I know your all saying well everyone can make cakes, well let me just say, they are my pink princess cake soap, I sell these by the slice and or whole, the scent is antique rose, very gorg!!!









The sweet smell lingering in the air of ginger bread houses baking in my oven, I make around 15 to 20 of these every year, some are orders, some are donated as fundraises, and the rest well if there is any left over they are given as gifts, I decided to do a Shabby Chic ginger bread houses, with all things pale and in the shabby colourway, the pale pink icing roses just look beautiful if I do say so myself, Hopeful next year, if I have time to do more I will sell them through my website and or maybe I'll just take custom orders, just have to wait and see!!!


I normally have the whole family here for christmas lunch, but it's just my Hubby, Maddi, Sta & I, and then where going to my parents house, and then visit my brothers and there family so I will post photo's of that soon.




Well I hope you have enjoyed Christmas holiday at my home!!!

Thank-you Karla for hosting a wonderful party, I'm having a wonderful time here.

Oh, it is pretty here! I love all the Australian homes that I see, I think they do shabby chic even better than we do!

wow i love your home, the gingerbread houses are spectacular! i'm going to try my hand at a kit one, if you've got any special tricks or tips they'd be greatly appreciated! i'm going to attempt to make my own royal icing, is that right?
LOVE the soap cake, do you sell those to shops, I have bought a slice from a shop in Fitzroy and maybe you made it!
