Magda, Anoushka and Olivia finally agreed to change out of their pj's and into some clothes!

They really could do with some cardigans but say the house is warm enough.

Olivia's had a little growing spurt and is now slightly taller than her sisters much to her delight!

They settle down in the family room and Maga picks up the ipad .
" I wonder if they can put extra beds in Mum and Dad's room ?"
"Why would we want extra beds upstairs in the parents room? " asks Anoushka mystified
Magda rolls her eyes " Not upstairs silly! In the hotel ! In May " she waves the ipad at them I'm going to email the hotel and check, we don't want to have to share a bed with Hattie and Lucas!"
The other nod in agreement

"and Ollie will need a bed too!" says Olivia
Anoushka looks at her " Ollie cannot come there won't be enough room!"
" But he's my twin, he must come or I'll miss him"
Anoushka looks annoyed " But if he comes that new boy Wolfie's going to want to come too and then probably Peter ! It's bad enough Mum's taking Lucas without loads of boys coming!"
Olivia gives Anoushka a hard stare " Oliver is not a boy he's my twin! and he cannot be left behind , maybe you should stay behind!"
" He is a boy! " says Anoushka her voice rising " and a stupid one at that.. do you...."
Magda sighs , she only wanted to know if the hotel had some extra beds for the kids!
Suddenly Anoushka stops shouting...

a vision in pale lemon as appeared and is walking across the room..

she seems to glide across the room smiling at all she sees and nodding!

" Who is that " whispers Anoushka to Olivia
" No idea !" she whispers back " I bet Mum knows !"
Anoushka nods in agreement , then as the young girl vanishes out the door, she says " Why don't YOU stay home with Twinie!"
Magda decides to leave them to it and email the hotel and check about rooms and beds etc...or no one will be going anywhere !


This is Lydia a Girl for all time doll, she's from the Georgian period. I have wanted her for a long time and bought her for myself from Paul for Christmas but then he decided he's rather give me a Radley handbag I was after , so i put her away and almost forgot I had her ! So finally today she was removed from her box.

Being a History lover these dolls so appeal to me. I do love the Georgian period and the Regency and the medieval and Tudor, so pretty much covered by these dolls. I may need a nice Georgian room setting for them...... later this year... maybe.....



  1. Fantastic! We've started the new year off with my favourites.....GOTZ!! Oh joy :)

    1. And a Happy New Year to you and your only and only new girl Lettuce :) Green to introduce her with that name was not a good choice :))
      Many Goetz reside in the village now Simps, so you will be seeing a lot more in the coming year.. :)xxx

  2. Green was all I had...and she needed something on her head....her hair is a shocker!! Leave poor Letti alone...she is fed up as it is...naff hair and no Sasha friends :)

    1. OKAY what have you done with Ronny!:0 She'd never worry about the poor girl having bad hair, she'd make her suffer and show it off!
      Or are you Ronny and you've turned over a new leaf with the new year.... Mmm I will reserve judgement... but I'm watching........ :)

  3. ;) ;) Same old me...haven't turned over a new leaf...but am getting out a flu bug I had over Christmas...perhaps that is why I appear mellow...drugged up to the eyeballs with Beechams powders :)

    1. That explains it then! Thank goodness I thought you'd turned sweet !! :)

  4. Lovely button nosed girls Dee and so prettily dressed.
    And is that a ghost drifting across their path I wonder? A vision in lemon? What a pretty Lydia. What do you think of the new 1960s girl?

    1. Thanks Sharon, those Button's seem to be ruling the roost here at the moment, can't last !
      I love Lydia but then I have since the beginning, not sure if I'd get the 60's girl but she looks nice. xx

  5. Uiui; more members of the family, thanks for sharing:)
    Lydia looks quite like Snowwhite.

    The Buttons are lovely dressed and obviously warmhearted, as they don't need cardigans ... and I'm sure, they will solve the hotel-problem. Mrs.Mum perhaps has to buy a bigger case?

  6. Mmm Snow white! Now that's another tale... :)
    I thought it was about time they got dressed!That's what I am worried about , them solving the hotel problem.. there'll be no room for Paul and me ... I don't think we'll fit in the suitcase for sleeping.. ;)

  7. Your button nose girls look lovely in their pretty dresses and nice leather shoes. It will be interesting to see who will make the trip in May. The Cow Creek clan are all wanting to come. Bound to be sone disappointed kids and some happy ones too! Finn and Gertie have seats so far. :)

    Your angelic visitor in lemon is lovely. I am happy you have her since you wanted her for a long time. Lydia is a pretty name and I like the Georgian period too. A period sitting room sounds wonderful. :) xxx

    1. They do like their clothe the button girls :) Yes it's going to be hard to decide who gets to go at least I could fill the car but you must stick to a suitcase making it much harder!
      Lydia is such a lovely looking girl and i do hope to get a nice room setting for her and her sisters ! :)

  8. Rest assured that the Sasha Celebration venue is BIG enough for ALL the Village Clan to attend as the bedrooms are lovely and large and with all the necessary facilities.
    You could even choose a different group (from the the Village main core characters, the Button Noses, the 1968 dolls, the babies, the Bramber Bears)to come down to meet us each day and join in the fun.
    Very prettily dressed girls here and 'nice' to 'greet and meet' the new Lydia!

    1. It will need to be with all your Brood performing and then all the attendee's ! A good idea to have a daily group but then which groups!! :)

  9. Auntie DEEEEEEEEEE! If Ollie is going, I'm coming too! I got Dada's debit card right here. Where do I book???? I got to come as I don't like being the only Button Nose all the time.Angelina says she's going to hide in Auntie Diane Duke's bag and sneak in, but I can PAY with this debit card.
    Your adopted nefyuw,

    PS What does Mrs Pirate Simply Sasha keep turning over leaves for? I went into the garden and spent ages turning eaves over and nothing happens except your hand gets cold and your mind gets bored

    1. Dear Bertie
      You must NOT use Dada's card, you don't want to miss the weekend by being in jail! do you? If you Mame agrees you can always come to us and I'll take you along with your cousins, but you must ask Mame nicely and not sulk!
      Love auntie Dee
      PS because she's two pence short of a shilling Bertie and it keeps her out of mischief!
