Hoping for a Ride.

Rebekah Grace and Peggy Sue are trying to go for a ride on Push-a-Long Dog (who is waiting patiently for a name!)  

But to no avail...before long Rebekah Grace gets bored with pretending and goes inside to see if any of the other boys or girls want to play with her.

Peggy Sue's patience however is rewarded when along comes Big Betsy who happily provides the pushing power!

Whee...this is fun,  Peggy Sue calls out.

Some New Postcards.

What are you doing Henry?  Lewis asks.

It is time to update my postcard album Lewis.  Henry says.

You've got some great new cards.  Lewis tells him.

Yes, I've got this one from Minnesota, from the Gregoropolis Gang and those two near your come from Hans' and Angelo's Dad Jesse from his trip to Europe.  Aren't they interesting?  Henry says.

Lewis helps Henry put his cards away.

I think this one is such fun with the fabric skirt on the front.  Henry tells Lewis.

Lewis agrees.

I've actually got to get some postcards sent as well. Henry says to Lewis.  I got them while on the Isle of Wight and when we were down in Cornwall.  I must try and do that this week.

The boys wander off to see if they can find the 'safe place' that the cards have been put in.

A Parcel from Afar.

Wow, look a parcel for us!  Henry says.

Emily is already armed with the scissors.

The girls are gathered round to have a look at the big box waiting to be opened.

It has come the USA.  Henry says. How exciting.  I can't wait to see what is inside it.

Do you think it is another family or friend arriving? Everlee asks.

I don't think so.  Henry replies, it doesn't look the right shape.

Come on let's see.

Emily starts opening the package while the others lean in eagerly to see what it might contain.

Oh gosh, look it is full to the brim.  Everlee says. 

Ooh, I felt bag - I like this colour.  Summer says.  I wonder what is in it?

Everlee looks at Summer.  Perhaps it is something to wear?

I hope so. Summer replies.

They start looking through the box.

A hat! Exclaims Henry.  Just what I need.

Suits you Henry.  Everlee says.

Ooh, look a jar of Maple Syrup.  Emily says.

How wonderful.  I can do some baking with this.

They spread out the goodies received and are absolutely thrilled.

Emily has some wild rice to cook and some Maple Syrup to add to some cookies. 

Henry has a hat and some building logs.  

Peggy Sue reads the postcard.

Everlee admires the lovely cardigan and hat.

Summer has claimed a felt bag with an outfit in it (shown in the previous post which SHOULD have come AFTER this one!  I got the posts round the wrong way.)

So what do you say?

Hooray, three cheers and a very big thank you to Daddy Steve and John, BR, Pete Dakota, and Stephen Orange who went to the Sasha Festival and the rest of the Gregoropolis Friends.  They all call out and cheer. 
 Hopefully you could hear it over there! They certainly tried their best and loudest.

We LOVE our souvenirs and thank you so much for your kindness which helps ease the disappointment of having to cancel our trip to see you and go to the Sasha Festival.

A Sunny Saturday.

Three girls were enjoying the great outdoors today.  The weather is still gloriously hot and we are all lapping it up while it lasts.  It seems so long (years in fact!) since we have had  real proper and decent summer, so we are certainly making the most of it while it is here.

Maddison and Everlee are joined by Summer who is wearing a fabulous 2018 Sasha Festival Outfit kindly sent to the Rose Cottage Family by Steve, John and their Gregoropolis Gang.  

They both admire the outfit and what a great fit it is.  The girls discuss what to do this fine Saturday afternoon...

They decide to go for a walk.

Much chit chat is going on between Maddison and Summer, whilst Everlee strolls on ahead.

Come on girls, keep up.  She says. Let's find some shade.

Once in the shade, Everlee tells them all about her latest news.

Once they have caught up with all the news about the goings on here and elsewhere, they sit and just enjoy listening to the birds for a while and decide what they might want to do this afternoon.

I think they all came to the same conclusion, having an ice cream sounded like a great idea!

Finding a Cool Spot.

With this amazing hot weather we are having at the moment, it is a hunt to find somewhere cool in the garden to sit or play.  

Peggy Sue and Lewis had the right idea today and spent some time by the nature pond.

Lewis sat and watched the frogs popping their heads up and down in the pond.

Peggy Sue sat on her swing.

She is still in a bit of a sulk with me after I packed her clothes and took them away with me to the IOW but forgot to take her!

For Sale: Dolls House, People & Furniture Page.

I am selling all my 1/16th size Dolls House furniture, people and Gee Bees Dolls House. I have listed them all on my blog as it is easier for me and hopefully a little bit clearer. I am negotiable to sensible offers, and to those who want to buy several items or in bulk. I am happy to provide my Ebay Feedback link so you can see for reassurance. I would prefer payment via 'Friends/Family' please and will only send recorded delivery to protect both myself and the buyer. If that is not acceptable to some then I can also send an invoice.
Link to page is here:
