After three weeks of sunshine and showers and turning the heating on a couple of evenings, the suns decided to return and bring some warmth with it.

Well one wall of the folly is finished!

and it seems someone's looking to take up residence!

I have told him , he'll have to wait until it's all finished to see if there's a place for him and his twin brother !

We have deliberately left a few knocks and crannies where we can plant a few ferns etc.

The side wall is coming along nicely.

and the first part of the arched doorway is in place, so this wall can be carried on to link into it.
Everywhere around looks like a building site! which it is!  As we build, I hope you are liking this WE! it's the royal one ;) , we are beginning to re design the garden space behind. So lots to do and see as this garden folly takes shape.

Well the clothes clearing out is going well.. ish , this is the cupboard today...

Now before you say it looks just the same as last time! I have to say I have managed to completely empty one of the smaller boxes and a few of the bags that contained clothes that were around the house!

I've had a tally up and so far have sold 43 items consisting of 4 baby outfits, 15 knitted items,11 dresses,6 clothes sets and 4 assorted items. Plus 4 dolls. Which sounds good but is in truth the tip of the iceberg! I need to be much harder!!

I decided also to redress my new girl who decided that it was time to tell me her name.

So here is Sienna amid the flowers waiting to be planted.

She tells me she loves flowers and so does her sister Amber ! Who it appears will be arriving next week!
How did that happen...... ;)

We also harvested the Tomato's and Peppers when we returned from our week away. We will definitely grow these again next year.

Well I need to go make some hard decisions re what goes and what stays and get them photographed and listed etc.

So wishing everyone a great week ahead.



  1. Thrilled that my choice of name got chosen for this stunningly beautiful Gotz pony tail girl. She is well dressed for the Autumn too with these colours.

    The Folly has certainly raced along over the last week. Is there just going to be three finished walls? Any plans as to what the open interior is going
    to be used for? Love the idea that there is going to be a little planting in it's walls to 'age'it.
    Well done on your recent Sasha sales!

  2. The folly is really taking shape. You're doing a fantastic job. Your new girl Sienna is lovely. I really like the high pony tail girls.

  3. Sienna is a beautiful name for your beautiful girl. Love her!!! Nice tomatoes and peppers. I love you garden photos. 😊 xxx
