So This Is Christmas!

Ready or Not....!

I will not bore you with my lamentations, Dear Readers, on how unprepared I am for Christmas this year! Instead I will show you the tiny things I have managed to do that are a little Christmas-y....
To begin with... someone has been baking.....

Were they planning on entertaining...?

(And Who hired the cook...?)
And here are some of the guests.....
But Whose Dogs are they....?
Annabelle is Enchanted..... 

Helen and Charles are preparing the Living Room......

Ken has put up a Huge Tree in the Castle Great Hall......
Do you think there will be a Party...???

And at Bedtime... Annabelle will hear her Favorite Christmas Story.....

The poem by Clement Moore... ""Twas the Night Before Christmas..."
With beautiful illustrations.....

And before you know it... Christmas is here.....

It seems that Santa Claus arrived.....

May you All have the Merriest of Christmases with your Families and Friends!
And may you enjoy the New Year more than Ever...!

It looks as though there will be Pie for Breakfast...!!!
From my Blog to Yours....
Ready or Not!
This is Christmas!!!


  1. Merry Xmas dearie :). It's just beginning for you while mine is nearly over :).

    Ready or not, your tree look just like the real thing! Pass me one of those gingerbread cookie plz :)

  2. What a splendid Christmas blog!
    For a minute, in that first picture I thought it was your real tree in your real house. (You should take pictures of them & share with your blog friends, they are so special.)
    Pie for breakfast, yeah!

  3. Marvelous scene! Merry Christmas! :D

  4. Merry Christmas dear Betsy!
    Good to know someone was as unprepared for Christmas as me this year, lol!
    The Christmas scenes are the cutest of all!(and I am in love with Annabelle's bed covering! Beautiful fabric! Have I missed it before? How come? )
    BEST wishes from my blog to yours! :)

  5. Here in Germany we're lucky enough to celebrate Christmas still at the 26th... ;O) Your fantastic scenes don't look unprepared at all, and let's not forget what Christmas really means... and sometimes it's even about putting Santa hats on the dogs... (LOL). I really loved this photo! - From my blog to yours - Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year!


  6. I'm a bit late but it's not midnight yet. So, I can still wish you a Merry Christmas and I would like to add a Happy New Year! I think it takes a lot of courage to build all the small things you build and I admire you very much for your persistence. Thank you for all the little scenes and stories!

  7. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!!! The castle looks very festive so I'm sure they had a wonderful party there :-)

  8. I am late, but we just came home this morning.....
    Your Christmas scenes are wonderful, Betsy, your dollhouse looks great with the coming guests and preparations for Christmas :D!! Thank you for your fantastic post filled with pictures and stories about your minatures, you shared with us. From my blog to yours: Merry Christmas (we celebrate Christmas in Holland on the 26th too) and a Happy New Year!
    Warm hugs, Ilona

  9. Dear Betsy, for as much about being unprepared for Christmas, I think I have beaten everyone this year.
    But I want to wish you the best things for the coming year :-)

    But now,that everything is over ( we celebrate 26th as well in Italy) I am glad that I made the little I did.

    I love your Xmassy scenes, much better than my home ;o)
