I managed to change a few of the girls into the new outfits and intended to take photos of them all outside in the garden.

But in the end only Mabel Lucie got to have her photos taken ! because the end of the garden was in such a mess I threw my dummy out the pram , turned the air blue and gave up.

So instead of taking any more of the girls photos. After taking Mabel Lucie's,  I put her and the camera indoors got my sun hat on and went back outside to spend a few hours moving things and tidying up!

So here are Mabel Lucie's photos.

I love her in this new denim set by Petrana, she looks so sweet and young.

another further along the garden this time on the grey bricks.

a close up

It's been a lovely day weather wise. Not too hot but warm enough after a cold start.

She was very good standing considering her stringing is so loose her legs and arms just dangle! I really must find some tiny cable ties and get her restrung.

So hopefully tomorrow afternoon , early evening ,I'll have a chance to take some photos of a few more but still loads of garden work to do! Plus working all morning. such is life at the moment all work and very little play!



  1. Mabel Lucie indeed looks so very sweet and young in her new PLAYFUL little smock style dress!

  2. Well they certainly all look lovely in the preview photo. It sounds like you're in the same boat I am. It turned from winter to summer in the blink of an eye, and now I'm scrambling to get all of the yard chores done (and occasionally turning the air blue as well).

    1. Hopefully they'll get their photo shoots later today! I knew there'd be weeds aplenty but it was all the things left blocking the path and leaning against the ,almost finished , folly that set me off!
      But now that's all sorted and you can almost get round all the paths... :)

  3. She does looks so young and sweet in her new outfit, and what a pretty outfit it is too....I love the fabrics that Petrana finds!
    I hope you got a bit sorted out in the garden, but as the saying goes, you can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs ;)

    1. Me Too I I've always wanted one of her denim sets, so was so glad to get this one.
      Well if this omelette breaks many more eggs, we'll be working until midnight before the opening just to clear a path! ;) xx

  4. Mabel Lucie is absolutely adorable in her sweet dress. It is perfect for her and her sweet, innocent look. The garden in the background looks lovely. A great post. 😊 xxx

    1. She is such a shy little sweetheart ;) The garden makes for a good background, if photo taken in the right place ;) xxx
