OUT AND ABOUT

001

Today was bright but very windy and cold, so this little girl made sure she wrapped up well to go out side and enjoy some air.

003

Maudie is wearing a Sasha coat with detachable fur trimmed hat and fake fur scarf.

 

005

She is also wearing Lisa  Hartley boots for Sasha so they are a little big and also a dress set for Sasha by Michelle.

 

007

Maudie, sheltered by the covered garden bench puts down her hood so you can see her new wig, her old one’s fringe would not sit properly so she’s set it aside and is wearing this new one.

009

I think it suits her quite well.

011

Well it’s time to make a move back towards the house, so hood up and get ready to go.

 

012

I think Maudie’s enjoyed her trip outside in her new warm cosy coat.

BIG AND SMALL

025

Big or small the dolls in the village love to read.

 

028

Constance gets book to read as Elfine does not read aloud, being an Elf Princess, she expects others to read to her!

 

029

Unfortunately if she’s waiting for Constance to read aloud to her she’ll be out of luck! For as soon as Constance saw the picture of the night sky with the moon , she came over all sleepy and now just wants to rest.

 

031

She can barely hold her book up, she’s so tired!

 

034

Elfine waits to see if Constance will start reading aloud but all she can hear is a lot of yawning and sleepy sighing!

036

Well if that Constance is going to start snoring , she’s off to read elsewhere ! and with a twitch of her nose, she’s gone!

and all that’s left is a pile of books and a sweet snoring drifting across the room……

A NEW DOLL CUPBOARD

Well I had to give in and get another doll cupboard or cabinet as too many dolls had nowhere to live and keep the dust off them.

So I found this gem on Ikea’s website and it’s now filled with dome of my dolls.

006

a view with the doors closed.

 

017

and with them open.

009

The middle shelf I am keeping for room settings and Ivy and Evelyn , my two largest Schoenhut dolls are taking tea and having a gossip there at present.

029

On the shelf above them are my cloth dolls.

 

011

and above them at the top, my Wichtel’s and my Blythe dolls

012

Below the middle shelf are my Bramber bears and their friends.

 

013 and at the very bottom, two of my Kidz n cats dolls sitting on a wooden sofa chair and the other side is most of my smaller Schoenhut dolls, with two little Kathe Kruse dolls in front.

So do all my dolls now have a covered , protected , dust free home…… no but nearly! 🙂

TEA FOR TWO ..TAKE THREE…

img_0266

The table is set, who will come to tea?

img_0320

Well It’s Evelyn My 20 inch Schoenhut girl.

img_0323-1

and  she’s joined by Ivy, my 18 inch Schoenhut girl.

img_0321

I notice Evelyn is the first to take over the tea pot ! I think these dolls are the prefect size for this tea set, which is what I thought when I first saw it.

img_0325

Ivy who is a very busy midwife, not even had time to change !

img_0331

I think we’ll leave Evelyn and Ivy to have their tea as I am sure Ivy will probably have to dash off at some stage to deliver a baby !

I hope you enjoyed these photos. I am still using my ipad but am about to get my new camera, so will take some more soon.

TEA FOR TWO.. TAKE TWO…

 

img_0266

So who is up next to try out the new doll tea set?

 

img_0286

It’s my Kids n Cats doll Grace.

img_0281

and she is joined by Harry , a small bear of the Inca’s whose lived with me for about fifteen years.

img_0287

I think that the tea set looks the right size for the kidz n cats dolls which are 18 inches with bendable arms and legs.

img_0283-1

Harry who was found wandering the halls of Alexandra Palace one bright November day where I was attending a doll and Teddy bear show. We got along so well he decided to come along home with me.

img_0296

Looks like Grace as finished her tea, so time to see whose coming to tea next?

 

***********************************************************************

TEA FOR TWO ?

Today I finally got to play with my new dolls tea set. When I saw it I thought it would be prefect for my larger dolls, then worried that it would be too big but was delighted when it arrived to find it was just a beautiful set and small enough to go well with the larger dolls here in the village.

img_0266

The table is set with a pretty cloth and the tea set ready to see which of the dolls in the village suit this size tea set.

A closer view of the tea set.

First to come for tea are Elfine and Faith These are my 18 inch Kaye Wiggs dolls, I think the set suits them well.

 

img_0270

I just love this photo of Elfine sitting holding her cup.

img_0271

Faith looks a little worried ! Is it because she’s sitting down with an Elf princess?

 

img_0275

Thankfully Elfine is on her best behaviour and talks nicely with ?

Who was up next to have tea?

 

NB I cannot for the life of me remember my brunette girls name, so have called her faith until I find out!

 

A WALDORF LAD

Well I just had to add this Waldorf lad to my family group. I watched him for a couple of weeks then took the plunge and bought him.

leo-4

Unfortunately the camera is not yet back from repair , so these photos have been taken with the ipad but late in the evening, so not as sharp and crisp as I would like. I will take more once the camera returns and his sisters can join him.

 

leo-3

I decided to call him Leo as I already had a doll with his name ( Lucas) and I think Leo suits him better.

 

leo-1

I love his hair and sweet face.

I’ll post again soon but wanted to share him with you all now .
