Last night I got up to see the meteor shower that were travelling across the night sky, I saw a couple of slight ones, my daughter who spent much longer outside than me saw quite a few!
There is something magic about watching the night sky. We are lucky being in a village we did not have the problem of street or road lighting that people have in towns around London and the M25.
I keep intending to buy a telescope and really must get round to it or until I do I'll probably need a wooden lounger to lay on , makes it easier on the neck when looking up at the stars for long periods.
You have seen most of my haul of doll props I have acquired lately , the present sasha studio is looking quite full!
But there's still space to squeeze a few more things in! not in danger of getting buried under an avalanche yet ! So onwards and UPwards :)
My new No Navel girl should be with me by the end of the month and my yellow eyed miss should arrive not long after!
I'm still trying to be hard and sell on some things and am think seriously about if any of my many styles of dolls should be put up for adoption ! At present despite having two large doll display cupboards there are thirteen dolls laying or sitting about the downstairs rooms making the place untidy but pretty! ;) So once I finish this post , I'll be having a change around in the cupboards to try and get more in ! or just to also put some back!
The doll clothes cupboard is not much better ! it's under the stairs and I still have a few bags sitting around with no home!
I have to move so much just to get to find , hopefully , what I'm looking for! Sometimes part of me wants to go ENOUGH! sell it ALL!
and then I look at whats in a box and think oh that's so nice or she's no longer making things/is now too expensive etc and so 99% gets put back !
I think I may need to reduce some of my non Sasha dolls, just settle on a couple of groups and cull the rest keeping maybe , three of each.... sounds so easy when you type it....... but I beginning to think that way!
Mind you I have done this on the odd occasion and then another different set of dolls move in and bring their friends!
Paul's worked really hard in the garden today laying the foundations for the folly.
Milo's found himself a spot in the late afternoon sunshine.
Looks like Paul as too!
I'll let him off since he's finished the foundation for the folly.
Now to give them a week to harden and then building can begin!!! Like all good design's it's being tweaked as we go. The arrow slit window in the shape of a cross is now going in a different place that first thought. But then we've not started building yet, so it could all change!!
a photo to show the sun streaming through the garden.
She's standing in the chimney pot! But she does look sweet!
Well I hope everyone enjoys the week ahead and you all get some time to 'play' with your dolls.
I agree that watching the night sky is very magical, especially if you sit long enough to notice that the moon and stars moving through the sky. So often we're all in such a hurry that we have no sense of the universe moving around us.ReplyDelete
It is and yes watching the stars and moon ,wonderful, not enough people stop to enjoy the simply things in life and all that entertainments free! xxDelete
Loving Maude in her specs,,,how sweet does she look?!ReplyDelete
Me too, poor girl can hardy see without them ;)Delete
....and me too...though hoping that it isn't a reflection on Janet's eye painting.Delete
No her eye painting is lovely :)Delete
Maude look just so huggable! And your garden looks gloriousReplyDelete
Thanks :) She's just an old fashioned child at heart! :)Delete
It was very hot here today too. I think I over did it with the gardening in the sun and gave myself a thumper of a headache :( Maude looks so sweet in her glasses :) I used to have a telescope, but when we moved I didn't have room, so I gave it away!! Looking out into space from our little spot in the universe is truly awe inspiring and very humbling :) xxReplyDelete
Easily done when you are busy doing garden work, you don't realise it's strength. I always wear a hat even to put out the washing when the suns strong or I get burnt!Delete
I really must get one , the Gregors are really keen on the idea! mind you I'm sure that's because they'd get to stay up late!;) xx
Surely??? The Folly designed should have been decided and sorted out BEFORE the concrete foundations were laid? I'm rather thinking that it 'has and is' in Paul's mind and it might well be his other half that keeps changing HER mind!ReplyDelete
....and there I thought that I had a HUGE amount of Sasha related CLUTTER and STUFF here...but having seen ALL YOUR'S I reckon that perhaps YOU win first prize and 'take the biscuit.'
Enjoyed seeing your Gertie-Maude wearing her new glasses and standing in amongst those enhancing coloured flowers.
It seems as though our weather up here hasn't been anywhere near as bad and I'm pleased to see that I might be picking, and eating, my first crop of my Runner Beans in a day or two.
The base was laid to the design but we can still tweak it with where we put the windows and how much wall we build on each side. You'll understand as it progresses :)Delete
Mm I think you can still give my CLUTTER of sasha goods a run for the money!:)
Yes I think I should find Gertie Maude a change of clothes that is still in keeping with her look!
Yes Maude DOES look sweet, with her pinafore matching the flowers.ReplyDelete
Your folly foundations look very promising. Can't wait to see the progress!
Thank you. I'm hoping the folly will start to 'grow' this weekend :)Delete
Maude is absolutely delightful and even more so in your beautiful garden. I am glad she has her glasses so she can appreciate the beauty around her. Her dress is wonderful too. The photo of the sun streaming in the garden is very lovely. I hope you are having a great week! 😊 xxxReplyDelete
Thanks Ginger. Her outfit was by the talented Janet MD but I'm going to change the child for the summer :)Delete
I hope you are having a great week too :) xx
Maude looks lovely, if a trifle warm. You and Judith DD are exhausting me with all your landscaping work. Look forward to seeing the end results :-)ReplyDelete
Weve had 3 good days in a row here, its a minor miracle x
Yes poor Maude needs a change of clothes :) I may have to employ Judith to assist with the building work :)Delete
Three good days.. result! xx
