New girl (Sally ?) has made friends

She is 18″ tall and has borrowed an outfit from Milly the Sasha Course doll. They are sharing a sofa and having a good old chat about all the houses they’ve lived in and all the little girls they have had tea parties with but neither of them can turn their head to look at the other so it’s a bit like having a chat on the ‘phone 🙂

Saturday is Veg Patch Day :)

Not much to do today…some mowing and weeding and a bit of picking. New girl was in the car first and locked the doors…we need to have a talk about democracy…so she came along to see why everyone else was so keen to come along…20160625_130653I’ve picked some strawberries and raspberries and this one looks like the perfect size for me so can I have this one ?20160625_132610And I didn’t ask but I didn’t think you’d mind if I nibbled some peas …


And your hat makes a great swing 🙂

Second new girl was altogether different

Taller, much older (but looks younger ..?!?) and has no clothes at all :O No name either but might be Sally ? We think she must be 80ish years old but she looks a lot younger so we need to find her something to wear that she might feel nice in. She’s the same size as a Sasha Course Doll…so let’s see if there’s anything in the Sasha wardrobe ….


The fair Frieda arrived <3

Frieda made up for the relentless and torrential rain this week. She is an 80’s Sasha given a very beautiful new lease of life by Kelly Wenarsky. She has stolen my heart completely and I’m sure you’ll be seeing her modelling knits on here soon 🙂 I might even get out the sewing machine and make something nice for her ….but it’ll never be as nice as this lovely outfit by Mary Sampson, aka Betsymay ❤

Rain has stopped gardening for the last fortnight

It hasn’t stopped the rabbits eating my peas, beans and lettuce though. And what they left the slugs had. I spent all day today netting up anything tasty and planting new batches of beans and peas. The boys came along to see how things have grown in all that rain.

Cam taught the puppies to ‘wait’…

Caleb tried to persuade a very reluctant Boot to have a wheelbarrow ride..

And someone thinks the potatoes might be ready to dig up 🙂
