Well I wasn't going to do a catch up today but since it's been a proper winters day I thought why not!
So we woke up to it snowing! At first it was not settling but by mid morning it was starting to lay. I'm pleased to say that as I type this it's now raining and it's washed the snow away from the roads and paving, so as long as it does not stop and freeze overnight , and thankfully it's not forecast to, it should be fine for driving to work tomorrow! So I hope they have got their forecast correct!
I bought another item from the Maileg Kitchenware range this week, Ollie is helping to show the sizing.
It is a Bowl, Whisk, wooden spoon and tea towel .
The bowl is terracotta, glazed on the inside but not the outside.
Sizing is good but not sure If I could have done better, by sourcing the items another way.I may try it when I have time.
I received a new , to me, Schoenhut doll on Wednesday. She'd been on layaway and then had to make her journey here from the US. I do love these bigger Schoenhut dolls, Miss Vivian is 19 inches.
When I first saw her she was wearing a totally different outfit and a dark wig and I wanted her then but before I could do anything she'd vanished, so I thought her sold. Then she reappeared a few months later wearing a blonde wig and this wonderful red and white outfit. This time I got in quick !.
An old style elegance about her, with her red wide brimmed straw hat and her heart shaped satin box., flowing dress and red sash.
I knew straight away her name and who and what she was, Miss Vivian Scarlet Schoenhut, an actress and film star ,who between jobs returns to her family and friends in the small country village where she can just be a normal member of the community.
The Vivian from Vivian Leigh the British actress from the forties , who starred in Gone with the Wind and many other films.
And even better she arrived just in time to help me with Bruno and Granny's Christmas tale!
So not much else happening here, I'm about to go and do the next post for Granny and Bruno's story which I'll put on before I leave for work tomorrow.
So have a great week ahead .
