Easter fun & Jigsaw

This morning the Easter Bunny has been busy hiding eggs all over Sashaland,

with the help of three little bears who hope there’ll be a few eggs left over for them after the babies have their fun.

The babies were into the garden in a flash, squeezing underneath bushes and scuffing their little knees, not minding a bit how much of a mess they made of their nice clean clothes….the most important thing was to find ALL the eggs and not to leave any for the big kids who would come later. It turned out they had inside help too. Little pink Ty Beanie Bear (‘Easter’) offered to tell them where the eggs were in return for a few eggs of his own to keep.

New kids who’ve joined us in time for Christmas

Until they huddled together for their photo I hadn’t spotted a pattern but now I have 🙂

These three girls joined us recently and made friends very quickly.

First is Hazel, re-rooted by Pam Winter Turner and now turning heads with her fabulous tresses.

Then Maisie, a 1968 girl, again re-rooted (I’m not sure by whom) and given a fringe, more of a tomboy this one,  and already at home on the allotment…

…and then little Baby Cinnamon, a 1980’s baby completely re-imagined by Kelly McCrea Wenarsky…..

and a new sister for Baby Shiloh who joined us a few months ago..

Now we’re all looking forward to seeing who comes to live with us next year…we’ll all have to shuffle up a bit but there’s always room for one more 🙂

Merry Christmas from the new kids xx

Goodbye to Autumn

One last dressing up in Autumn colours before we start to get dressed in our Christmas/Winter best – and introducing the stunning Selma, (on the right) a beautiful re-root by Pam Winter Turner. Click here for their jigsaw …

….and while we’re introducing new family members we can’t leave out Mira..my little ebay miracle who arrived looking like this..

 

and scrubbed up beautifully….

and had to put up with a hat for a while to tame her fringe..

and then went through a major operation ..

to eventually look like this ❤

 

She’s wearing an outfit that properly  belongs to A Girl for All Time, but it fits her beautifully and I was so happy to find a lovely velvet coat by Frances Trickett at C&S that makes her outfit complete. She says  hello ! and that she’s looking forward to Christmas with her new family and to meeting lots of new friends in May 2018 in Nottingham.

We are delighted to have her here with us !

She also has her very own jigsaw here …

Now Mum needs to get back to the knitting.  I think she needs more shelves for all her knitting books, but in the meanwhile, this is a nice warm place to sit 🙂

When life gives you strawberries…..

It all seems very quiet in here…

Ah, I thought it wouldn’t last long. Today is strawberry jam day. Not chasing a ball around the park day, apparently.

It smells lovely, but it takes so long…

 

…and now she needs a cuppa and a biscuit !

I won’t be too much longer……you can’t rush these things. Be a good boy and wait nicely.
