Well it's the final month of autumn ! The cold weather is already making it's self felt. Paul's spent the afternoon clearing out the greenhouse and then putting in all the plants that will need some help to get through the winter months.
The days are nice and bright but that cold is just chilling the edges ,waiting for the sun to lower in the sky to remind us winter is coming.

Now it's very rare that Hattie ever asks for something, in the clothing line, she tends to throw a few different items on from whose ever wardrobe or chest of drawers she's looking through!

But when she saw this on auction on ebay , she was very taken, however she does not bid! And she forgot to tell anyone else just how much she loved it, so alas it was sold ! But Hattie was not down hearted, she just sent off an email , in my name, to Rosie requesting if she had enough wool left could she make her one.

and below is the result !

Hattie is a big fan of Charles Rennie Macintosh , so she is one happy girl.

Unfortunately Valentine is heart broken! Because Hattie's taken back her tartan trousers which he loves and had been wearing.

I've let him have free reign looking in the new and as yet unused box of clothes , things bought at the SCW and the Chat n Snap and elsewhere. He's only slightly appeased but as I told him it';s about time he found himself something new to wear!

He's taking his time choosing so no photos yet! I think it's because now everyone knows there is box of newbies and he's enjoying making them all wait a while before they can look.

I won this little fellow on ebay, he's one of the very smallest of the Schoenhut elephants and will make a lovely addition to the herd in the sanctuary. One of his ears is missing , so we'll call him Pardon? .

I'd like to say I have been good since the Chat n Snap but it would not be true. I have been buying some new clothing for the Sasha's and some shoes.

I've managed to organise myself and take a few photos to share on the blog during the week. Hopefully we'll have some doll shelf photos for tomorrow but by now people get busy , so not so many appear but I hope to have a few to share from other not just myself.

On the home front Casper and Rufus , 10 months and 6 months this week are growing strong and their personalities are showing through.

Paul managed to get them to sit next to each other just long enough to get a couple of photos!

Well have a lovely week and I hope you all have time to share with your doll families.

  1. Hattie's new sweater is gorgeous and perfect for her. Charles Rennie Macintosh is just the thing for an artsy, bohemian girl like herself. Poor Valentine! Frederick says he will phone him later, and together they can commiserate on the trials of maintaining a fashionable wardrobe. Casper and Rufus look like absolute angels!

    1. I have to agree, Rosie's CRM sweater is just right! and right up Hattie's street!
      Valentine will look forward to hearing from Frederick , he loves a good gossip about family and fashion!
      Casper and Rufus look like angels..... ;)

  2. Love Hattie's choice in clothes, she looks very smart. :) Oh I do adore that photo of Casper and Rufus, hubby said Paul did a good job of getting them to sit side by side and look at the camera like that...well done ol' chap!

    Well while you are cooling down, things are beginning to warm up long last. Hopefully I can get some outside photos soon.
    Big hugs,

    1. Hattie does like to cut a dash :)
      That photo didn't take long to take but did take a few minutes to get them sitting together, Casper sat straight away but Rufus felt the need to move about for a few minutes until he managed to sit just where Paul wanted him, then two quick photos and it was all over! lol
      How nice for you to be getting the warmth.. it will be a distant memory for us soon! :) xx

  3. Love how 'daringly' Hattie wears those colours together!
    Had to have a quiet little smile at Gregor Daddies comment about maintaining 'a fashionable wardrobe!' Something that I gave up on many years ago! Now it's all about ease, comfort warmth and 'washability!'

    Stunning photo of Casper and Rufus. I loved it when my daughter had two Weimaraners,
    as they looked great together and so enjoyed each others company, although I know that there has to be a 'top' dog... which I presuming in your case, is Casper since he was there first,

    1. You know Hattie, she's not one to do plain!
      You may have given up Kendal but your Brood are the leading fashion house of several years standing.
      It's the first one we've managed to get of them sitting together and we're so pleased how it came out.
      Casper is such a gentle soul and is the top dog but Rufus loves to be his annoying little brother! :)

  4. Hattie looks great in her new outfit, a lovely splash of colour, the jumper and beret look so nice with her red hair.
    The boys are looking handsome, it seems hard to believe that they are already 10 and six months old! Where does the time go?

  5. I really like Hattie’s outfit......her plaid trousers and her beautiful new sweater. She has such a great eye and a flair for color to be sure. I look forward to seeing Valentine’s choice of trousers. It is good to have a change from time to time. Your Pardon? Is just precious.

    I can hardly believe how big Casper and Rufus are and they are both handsome pups. I hope you enjoy your week! 😊 xxx
