Today the Sasha Village was invaded by the Schoenhut dolls! They decided that the new table and chairs are just perfect for them!.

and so it was that I found Evelyn and Gertie sharing the new table and chairs in the flower garden!

While Ivy settled Edward who is still recovering from his fall at the table with the girls.

Cousin Ron was still playing on the carriage cycle.

Aunt Evelyn had treated everyone to an Ice cream Sundae but poor Edward could not get close enough to the table in his wheelchair.

Clara and Lillie were trying to decide just which part to eat first!

" I could lift you out of the chair and put you on the bench " suggests Ivy but Edward feels safe in the wheelchair and shakes his head.

" Lemon is my most favourite " sighs  Maudie

 all the children are so excited to be having such a treat!

ivy and Edward finally agree that he can hold the Sundae in his arm but instead of starting to eat it he just gazes happily at it !

Aunt Evelyn does not like ice cream! She says it's far to cold and she much prefers a nice cup of tea and a cake. But Ivy is torn.. should she have the lovely strawberry sundae or tea and cake / what to do!

Cousin Ron meanwhile is cycling madly towards the girls call for them to leave his sundae alone! Not that are interested in his sundae !

"Ron!" " Ugh!" " Gross!" says the girls as Ron leaps from the bike and buries his face in his sundae!

"You are such an piggy!" says Maudie watching Ron lick his sundae !

Clara cannot quite believe her eyes at Ron's antic's ! Boys!

Lucky for cousin Ron , his mum Ivy and her friend Evelyn are too busy talking to notice his behavour, so he gets away with it.. this time!

Soon's it's time to clear up and go back indoors before the Sasha's and Gregors come to claim back the garden. The Schoenhuts have had a lovely afternoon.

Oh dear! I think they've forgotten Edward ! Not that he's noticed , he's still admiring his now very melted ice cream sundae , hopefully he'll have eaten it by the time they come back to find him!


So why are these

Table and two white chairs and ironing board Top of the Props? Loved the guesses but no one was anywhere near!
They are Top of the Props ......because I won them for the maiden bid of  FIVE POUNDS! making each one having cost the princely sum of £1.25 p  a bargain!

Sorry to those who only love Sasha but the Schoenhuts needed some fresh air :)



  1. What a lovely afternoon they had! Naughty Ron! Maudie and Clara's faces are a picture! I think Maudie's dress fabric looks just like the fabric that I've used for Ezri's new dress! :) x

    1. It was ;) Ron is very naughty lucky his mum did not see him! I look forward to seeing Ezri's new dress :) x

  2. What a fun ice cream party, and I have to say that I admire Ron's gusto! Wow, what an amazing bargain for all of those props! This can only mean one thing -
    you need to take the money you 'saved' and buy a doll (at least that's Daddy Steve's way of thinking).

    1. Ron's is a little tike! It was such a bargain I could quite believe it!
      I'm with you Daddy Steve.. already in the works ;)

  3. What fun! And at a bargain price too.

    Of course, it coud work out very expensive becaue, if you go on buying props and adopting very large Schoey residents, you are going to have to move to a larger house. After Paul has done all that building and renovating too... such a shame....

    1. It was :)
      Alas I do so love the larger Schoey's I think my larger house may land up being that folly in the garden.. but not sure Paul will put in a roof! :)

  4. I love your Schoenhut collection and what a nice ice cream party. A perfect day to enjoy the garden. Thank you for sharing this part of your collection. I enjoyed meeting them. 😊 xxx

    1. Thank you Ginger 😃 It's nice to let the other dolls get s little time in the light 😀 Xx

  5. The Schoenhuts fit these props very well, you have quite a size range of them. Ice cream in the garden - so lucky to get a warm day. I hope Edward found his way indoors eventually and wasn't too much of a mess with his melted ice cream.

    1. They are a good match to the Schoenhut dolls. There is a good cross of heights but I do love the big dolls in this range.
      Edward is a little sweet heart and managed not to get too messy 😀
