To the bear in a dollshouse.

Hi Bernard! I am ZE bear. This is how the lady of the house calls me. I like her but sometimes, she keeps on insisiting on putting rather strange stuff on my head as she is convinced I am a female bear.The man of the house says I am a male. I don't really know what I am but I love to climb everywhere .I am very fast at climbing and it explains why the pictures are a bit blurry but look at me!

Bernard... what do you think? Am I a boy or a girl?
If you are reading this and are wondering who Bernard is, he is the very cute bear who lives in a dollshouse and loves to eat cakes all day!

What a suprise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today a very unexpected parcel arrived at home. It was from my friend KiM who lives in Minnesota!

She had decided to make me a surprise!

Rosy and Aliénore couldn't wait to open the box.
"Is it for me?" asked Aliénore."No! it is for us!"repied Rosy."We've got to share!"But deep inside I knew they were both wrong.


Look what we discovered!
A lovely pink board with one of my favourite cake and the blog's name on it!

Also a handmade miniature tea pot and an exquisite tea cosy with a Papillon Bleu .




There was also an extra box with this note inside.

So I opened and discovered all these wonderful treasures!!!!


Glass jars and lovely tiny little trays!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



I couldn' believe my eyes! Nore could I wait to display everything in my tea shop and...yes...play!
Kim, I thank YOU for being such a wonderful friend, from the bottom of my heart!

Where are the followers?

Today, all my followers are invisible on my screen...
Is it only on my screen or is the same thing happening to you too?
Is it just my computer playing a trick on me?

I've visited several other blogs and...no followers...
Hope it is just a temporary thing. I like to see you there, whether you are reading or not.
Usually,I've got all those little pictures that I like to click on and sometimes, I do keep an eye on your universe too!

Sometimes I choose to follow you and sometimes I follow who you follow or even who is following you!
Isn't it how most of us have met?

But today, where are you?

Waiting for Prince Charming...

I found him on a lovely blog.
I purchased it on Etsy and now I am waiting for Prince Charming to come into our dolly life!
Isn't he cute?



I have also had fun preparing a short video today. Feel free to have a look at it! I have decided to dedicate it to a lady called DoLL Mum. She loves her dolls so much and I truly don't blame her as they are all so lovely!

My universe

I have found today a lovely rocking horse for Aliénore and Rosy's room.Had to show you.



Very recently I had to write about myself and my Papillon Bleu universe .This is what I chose to write:


I am a dreamer and dreams have no scale.
So, most of the time, my handmade dolls pay a visit to my mini tea room and I mix everything: mini cakes, 1/12th and other sizes, dolls, teddies., tin toys...anything that sends me back to childhood.
This is all what my universe is about: innocence, fun and dreams.



Well...this is how I see my little world from the inside...but YOU? how do you see it from the outside?

The gift

I don't know if you remember but, I decided some time ago, that I was going to send a little something to my 20th follower. It is the lady who did the lovely picture I've shown you one day.


She is Canadian and has the most beautifull B&B ever! Take a look at one of the bedrooms!
Here is the link to her B&B for more beautiful pics http://www.blueforest.ca/
Here a link to her blog http://theplumedpen.blogspot.com/



So, as I make dolls, I have decided to make one to send her. Between you and me, I think this doll is going to have a wonderful life! But as you can see, I haven't finished her yet. Once she'll have her legs and arms, she'll be ready to fly to Canada and have the most beautiful house ever! Lucky doll! I wonder what is going to be her name ... I've prepared this also because she really likes French things.
Take care!

Erratum



The house on the pictures that I have previously published hasn't been made by TELLE...ooops!
It is her dolls though that you can see inside. In fact, the house she has created is this one( above)!And you know what? I prefer it to the other one.

Les photos de la maison de poupée publiées au post précédent n'a pas été conçue par TELLE...crotte!Ce sont bien ses poupées cela dit que l'on peut voir à l'interieur. En fait, la maison réalisée par Telle est celle ci( ci dessus) ! Et vous savez quoi? je la préfère à l'autre .

Moreover, you can also find her items on this other website:

De plus, vous pouvez également trouver ses articles sur cet autre site:

This is the doll I would like to order!

NINON: a doll story / NINON:une histoire de poupées

About 3 years ago , I was doing some research about children's illustrators when I had a big crush for some illustrations found on a blog. The illustrator is called TELLE. She is such a gifted illustrator and it didn't take long before I got completely mesmerized by her universe.

Il y a environ 3 ans, je faisais un peu de recherche sur les illustrateurs jeunesse quand j'ai eu un véritable coup de foudre pour des illustrations trouvées sur un blog. L'illustratrice se nomme TELLE. Elle est pleine de talent et il n'a pas fallu longtemps avant que ne je sois totalement subjuguée par son univers.


This character above is called NINON.A very mischievous little girl as you can see.

Le personnage ci- dessus se prénomme NINON, une petite fille très espiègle comme vous pouvez le voir.

Then, TELLE, started making little dolls ( the best idea she ever had I think!) and made these little adaptations of NINON for her daughter's class.

Puis, TELLE commença a réaliser des petites poupées ( la meilleure idée qu'elle ait pu avoir selon moi!) et conçut ces adaptations de NINON pour la classe de sa fille.





Then more NINONs!
Puis encore des Ninon!




And even a dollhouse for Ninon!
Et même une maison de poupée pour Ninon!


It didn't take long before a company( TROUSSELIER) noticed her work and decided to commercialise her dolls! WOW! !!!!!!!!!( yes, I think it diserves a monumental 'wow')


Une compagnie( TROUSSELIER) ramarqua rapidement son travail et décida de commercialser ses poupées.
WOW!!!!!!!!!!( oui, je pense que cela mérite un "wow" monumental).


So, now if you want to discover her universe you can click on the picture below.
Donc, si vous souhaitez découvrir son univers, vous pouvez cliquer sur l'image ci dessous.

If you want to purchase one of the adorable items, you can find them on this website.
Si vous souhaitez acheter un des adorables articles, vous pouvez les trouver sur ce site.
(Do you recognise this cute little white wolf?)
(Reconnaissez vous ce mignon petit loup blanc?)

Well, yes, sometimes I do believe in Fairy Tales...

Et bien oui, il m'arrive parfois,de croire aux contes de fées...
