VISITING

I went to visit a friend and took along Azalea. She loved looking around my friends garden.

002

She said hello to these lambs .

005

Then she found a slide! so she was so happy, she loves slides.

006

She was soon at the top and getting ready to slide down.

008

She called out to make sure I was watching!

010

Ready Steady Go !

013

Within seconds she was at the bottom, giggling.

015

I’m going again, she called , so I left her to enjoy herself and went in.

 

016

My friend collects mainly Kidz n Cats dolls and always has a display in her window. She also as a couple of Zwergnase dolls .

024

 

This lad in his cowboy hat was waiting for warmer weather , so he could go and ride the range ūüėČ bad refection but he was such a lovely doll I wanted to show him to you.

B IS FOR

BLYTHES WITH A BIG BOOK!

060

Cherry and Pinkney have decided to read a book. Pinkney is fed up reading Little women, they have already read it this month!

“No Cherry ” she says firmly ” I am not reading this again!”

“Oh but I love it! It’s so us!” Cherry answers.

062

Pinkney moves away and Cherry sets the book flat, how can I get her to agree.. she wonders

Meanwhile Pinkney’s thinking she does LOVE Little Women so to read again would not be so bad…

065.JPG

” I know ” says Cherry craftily ” If we read this book now we can read any that you want all next month!”

“Mmm ” says Pinkney ” ALL next month, what I want to read? ”

“Yes I promise, cross my heart and eat a pie”

“That’s cross my heart and hope to die!” corrects Pinkney

“Really! I always thought it was strange you had to eat a pie after crossing your heart!” giggles Cherry ” alright then , cross my heart and hope NOT to die!”

Pinkney giggles ” So let’s start reading then, I need to make a list ”

“What list !”

“The list of books we are reading next month”

“List! I don’t remember saying there’d be a need for a list !”

” Yes, list, there’s Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice , Anne of Green Gables ” she warms to her subject ” War and Peace …”

“WAR AND PEACE!”

ZWERGNASING!

Is that a word? well it is now!

Today I decided it was time for a photo shoot of my Zwergnase family.

So out into the garden we went.

013

Like little jewels of colour they stood about the rockery.

014

The rockery is a great place to take photos of the dolls even though the rocks are not level after a short fight I managed to get them all standing!

016

For the life of me I cannot remember the blondes name , so will call her Freya, well Freya’s looking a little wild haired in these photo’s ! in front on the left is Lenka and on the right is Katja and behind her is Azelea.

017

On the far left is Violet twin to Azelea.

019

Agnes is too far over on the right in these photos.

021

So she is encouraged to move to the front.

023

All but Violet are in their original outfits,so I must find or make them some new clothes.

024

We all move down into the formal garden onto the iron bench which we forgot to cover for the winter so is in need of some TLC.

026

Freya! What are you doing hiding behind that plant!

028

That’s better now we can see everyone. Lennert and Tammy have joined in.

030

a closer view.

031

Tammy in the front is the nemesis of all wolves in the surrounding area !

032

So that’s the Zwergnase family at present! will any more be arriving… we’ll just have to wait and see!

028

Freya,  Azelea,  Lennert, Katja, Lenka, Tammy,  Violet and Agnes.

A IS FOR

APPLE

A friend is running a group on flickr with the theme of producing a photo each week with dolls, working our way through the alphabet.

These are some of the photos I took in order to submit one to the group.

102

Knowing I had these small wooden Apples, the letter A plus the large wooden Apple meant this was what immediately came to mind when I knew I was going to take part.

I decided that Constance O , my Jerry Berry girl would be perfect for this task.

099

So even thought it was trying to rain! I took everything out to the flower garden and set the scene.

Constance decide to sit on the table! and hold one of the red apples.

110

It was not long before she said that the apple was getting heavy and wearing her out!

111.JPG

Within minutes she was sliding down and resting against the big apple and sighing!

 

115.JPG

“Was that a snore? ” I ask in disbelief !

116

“Pardon? Do I have a blanket as it’s getting chilly? ” Realising that she’d be fast asleep within a minute, I decided to gather everything up and retire back inside, visions of her sitting with the apple on her head and walking about scattering from my mind!

Well at least she stayed awake long enough for the first couple !

ONE DRESS TWO DOLLS !

I fell in love with the fabric and style of the dress you are about to see , as soon as I saw it. It was made for the Sasha dolls by Petrana but I purchased it for another of my dolls who as been wearing the same outfit since last May!

I have plans to make her a dress or two but like most of my plans life gets in the way and it goes onto the back burner!

So while she waits Faith will wear this beautiful dress and maybe after that the Sasha’s can have a turn!.

 

010

Faith is holding onto her hair because there is a little breeze and I have yet to get her one of those caps that help her wig stay in place !

011

Poor Faith has been very neglected since she arrived and she’s one of my favourite dolls!

014

Faith is sitting on the dolls Picnic bench which is on the seat of the covered bench at present.

016

a little sun shines on her face.

 

018

Unfortunately Faith does not have many pairs of shoes and these were the best fit from amongst her Sasha sisters many pairs but she did find this pink Radley handbag which matched the pink in her dress.

027

a closer view

037

we crossed to the other bench but it was still sunny

 

047

Then we tried the picnic bench on the grass but the wind was blowing Faiths hair in her eyes!

052

So she turned her face to the breeze.

054

she also tried sitting on the chimney pot for a couple of photos!

058

The breeze was picking up again, so Faith decided it was time to go back in!

But she very kindly changed and let Martha try on her new dress.

067

Martha was able to wear the perfect pink shoes to compliment the dress.

085

On the shady bench you can see the dresses true colours.

088

a close view of the colour and pattern

091

It’s lovely when a dress can fit to very different dolls and look perfect on both.
