Christmas Ornaments

I'm not trying to rush us all to Christmas but as I have a Christmas house I can have a mini Christmas any time I want to play.
I saw these for sale by Susan of Rainbow Miniatures on Facebook and just had to have one - or two and Susan very generously sent me three. I offered one to Oly and she chose the robin on the log. (Ow, I wanted that one) only kidding, I love them all. Susan has a very unique style.
I showed you my Cloth Art dolls a couple of posts back. I went to visit my family in England and took Gertrude to my Mum who is almost 89 but obviously still a child at heart as she loved her new friend.
I ran out of time to see my friend so I wrapped Titania up in tissue and a plastic bag and took her to the post office when my daughter and I went shopping with Henry in the pram. But when we arrived at the post office the package had gone! I know she's a fairy but I didn't think she'd be able to fly away on her own!
This is a close-up of her belt.
We traced our steps home but never found her! It remains a mystery.
And just because I miss him and love him to bits, here's a photo of Henry.
This week I've been in my work room designing and making dollshouse miniatures again! Kaisa asked me if I'd like to do an Advent calender swap with her this Christmas, so I must seriously keep up with my miniature making from now on to ensure I have 25 gifts to swap. Really exciting!
I hope you're having a great weekend!

  5. It is obvious that your mother was happy with Gertrude, she is beautiful!
    Sorry for the disappearance of your fairy, maybe she really has flown and you did not see. ;)
