SLIPPING

I’m in the process of selling a few dolls to fund a log cabin to use has my doll studio but alas that does not seem to stop me buying a doll that tugs my heart.

So I had no intention of buying any dolls at this time but this girl a limited edition Zwergnase doll came up on a buy it now.

I loved everything about this girl a first, second and third sight and I just adore her name which of course she’ll keep.

She arrived today and even though a few very very tiny snowflakes were trying to fall she agreed to go outside for a couple of photos.

 

012

It was bitterly cold today but luckily she’s got a lovely warm coat and hat.

013

Her name is Augustine, such a pretty name for a very pretty girl.

014

Her outfit is very smart.

017

It was too cold to take off her coat, so we’ll have to share the rest of her outfit another day.

RAINBOW … GREEN

025

 

If I was a Plant

my stem would be green

my roots in this pot

would never be seen.

But I’m just a girl

face in the sun

wondering if spring

has just sprung!

But no it’s still Feb

so nothing in this bed

Winters still here

it’s getting colder I fear

But spring will arrive

green things will thrive

This pot will be full

no room for me at all

Out in the road

snowdrops do blossom

in amidst bracken Ivy and

rotten….

cuttings from where the tractor

appeared

cut back the bushes , hacked them I feared

But although this is brutal

nasty to see

The bushes will flourish

you must trust me

So all this green you see around

with snowdrops peeping

above the ground

now bask in the sunshine

on sunny days

Spring will be coming hip Hip Hooray !

A LITTLE WICHTEL BOY ARRIVES

054

Yesterday this lovely lad arrived to join my Wichtel family. His official name is Michal but he’ll be known here as Gaku.

055

I have wanted one with his face sculpt for a couple of years plus the warmer skin tone.

I managed to get  a girl Juno with this face sculpt but a paler skin, so was over the moon when I came across this lad.

044

Here his new big sister Colette greets him and tells him about all the fun times he is going to have now he’s out of his box and home.

 

045

Gaku’s never seen such a happy doll before !

046

And it’s nice to have a big sister and especially a happy one!

048

Colette is so excited that Gaku gets a little shy ! But she tells him that it’s time to meet all his new sister and especially his new brother whose been waiting for a brother for ages!

RAINBOW YELLOW

THE RAINBOW YELLOW

In the garden dressed in yellow
Ashley looks for Spring
It’s still Midwinter she is told
you’d best just hurry in!

But Ashley stays outside this day
the sun is shining bright
who know how much more we’ll get
for soon it will be night

So stays she does in the sun
and fresh air does she breathe
on days like this it’s hard to care
and even harder to leave

RAINBOW …ORANGE

Orange the second colour in the rainbow challenge.

006

 

Orange a colour

we don’t really do

Not our cup of tea

between me and you!

So doing this photo

it was such a trial

until we saw tick tacks

and flowers that smile

So here we have boxes

orange in colour

and blooms oh so bright

to give to your mother

So we are just thankful

that we met the brief

finding these items

was such a relief!

RAINBOW.. RED

I’m behind on sharing my challenge photos for the rest of the alphabet and we have now for this year started on colours of the rainbow.

So I’ll try and keep up with these ones and will share the other missing alphabet ones when I have time to put them on here.

So here is my RED.

 

018

Sitting on my new RED bench

Joan of Arc is peeping!

She’s after looking at my shoes

to see if their in keeping

With this theme which must be seen

to show the colour RED

Thank goodness she is made of stone,

so can’t follow me to bed!

THE CATS MEOW!

Well I finally got round to changing four of the Wichtel girls into some new overalls I bought from A Passion for Sasha before Christmas.

001

So today although quite windy we went outside for a small photo shoot!

 

003

Ginny was selling them with different coloured t shirts but although lovely , they were slightly darker than I like, so I bought four in other colours trying to link them with colours in the cats.

005

Ginny helped find just the right yellow to match the cats in the set Jana’s wearing on the left!

009

I need to find the spare shoes I have to see if any would make a better match !

010

The girls were very brave standing on the raised shelf out in the wind!

011

It was quite sunny at times.

012

The girls are looking sweet in their new togs. So now they are off to play with their Christmas toys.

T is for TEA TIME

008

I want coffee

You’ll have tea

That’s not fair!

It is to me

Pass two scones

One will do

No it won’t cos I want two!

Don’t be greedy

I am Not!

Yes you are you’d scoff the lot

Chocolate cake?

No

Chelsea bun?

No

Tea with you is not much fun

Eat your scone and stop that face

No I won’t… my belly aches

That’s because you did not pause

So did mummy

Before you scoffed that iced bunny

I feel sick

I’m not surprised at wolfing down you’d win the prize

Oh It hurts I don’t feel good

I’ll kiss it better then it should

Thank you Mummy I’m feeling fine

I’m very pleased

Is that scone mine?

S is for SEVEN

024

S is for SEVEN SCHOENHUTS SITTING in the SUN with SEVEN SASHA SISTERS STANDING in the SHADE.

027

These are the two photos I used for S in the doll and bear alphabet challenge. I’m enjoying this challenge as it’s making me think about what to do for each letter and also I’m using the dolls more which is great.

R IS FOR RUBY RED

006

RUBY RED slippers upon her feet

She’s killed the witch

No mean feat !

The house did fall upon her head

and now the witch is stone cold dead!

 

Dorothy and Toto too

really now need the loo!

Then find a bus to take them home

never more will they roam

 

For Hurricanes they won’t do

just between me and you

It’s not nice to kill a witch

even if she was a bitch !

 

012

So Stolen shoes upon her feet

taking her dog she does retreat

and wander down a yellow road

to a wizard nuts and old

You all know the tale most foul

of the witch’s death and her sister vow

but noone did arrest this chit

who stole the shoes and other

sh… bits!

and so she gets off scott free

from theft and third degree,

Murder of a wicked witch

who was left dead in a ditch!

The shoes belong to my BJD dolls and were just borrowed for this post!
