Are you scAred in tHe daRk?

I am...

The night covers the day with her petticoat and black dress. With the night comes the darkness and with the dark begins the fear...

And you? what is your phobia?

3 Little Dolls In an Ocean of Daffodils

It was a beautiful sunny day and Tünde, Sadie and Charlotte decided to go for a little stroll through the fields.

There was a beautiful parc in a castle not very far and the little dolls enjoyed pretending they were the ladies of the place.

Spring was here for sure!

Tünde (who felt very special in her new romantic outfit ) was enjoying the old bench, then wanted to give a close look at the pink camelia that had entirely captured her heart.

Suddenly, she heard Sadie's voice shouting in the distance: "Hurry! Quick!!!Come and see!!!"

Tünde rushed accross the parc to see her friend sitting in a tree.

Sadie was fine.
She asked Tünde to climb up so she could have a better view.

And this is what the little dolls could see.

An ocean of Daffodils!

Charlotte , who had heard Sadie shout, arrived soon after and couldn't believe her eyes.

The view was taking her breath away.

The 3 little dolls layed in the moss amongst the flowers and silently enjoyed this peaceful moment where they felt they were making one with Nature.

We had to share this special moment with you, you see?

Hope you are all fine.
This post is for whoever needs a bit of sunshine.
Stay as long as you want, lay in the moss,it is so nice to have you here with us.

This heavenly place where the photos were taken is called Chiddingstone Castle. It is only 30 mins walk accross the fiels from my cottage.
You can see the website here.

Tünde is a travelling doll made by Laurence of FeltOOlala
Sadie is by Evelyn Santiago.

Ooooooooh before I forget!

I have now a set of postcards in my Boutique!

Love to you all!

Orphans of Sainte Cécile (little extracts) and thoughts

15th February 1940
Solange and her sister are really nice. We all get on well at the orphanage. Their beds are beside mine in the dormitory.

15th April 1940
Dad, I miss you. Things have changed a little here and Mademoiselle Rochefort seems agitated. I know she is trying to hide something. Yesterday, I was very upset because she scribbled in a rush on a page of my journal and tore the page.

I have finished to write the story . Next I am translating and then, hopefully, it shouldn't be too long before I can hold the little book in my hands.

Meanwhile, all the events occuring in the world just remind me that every day counts.
Even when something difficult hits you, just try to focus on the positive side of things.

Easy to say but...I have been there.

If I hadn't done that, I wouldn't be blogging, I wouldn't be creating , I wouldn't know you.

Here is our guest!

The dolls had waited so long that Anne and Mikiko left the house.

(In fact, they both got adopted! )

Sadie, Charlotte, Aliénore and Emily were still waiting for the guest though...
Tünde was her name.

Aliénore went upstairs in her bedroom to make sure everything would be nice and tidy for her. She also thought that she would definitely impress her with her extraordinary collection of beautiful toys and the lovely new "descente de lit" created by Geneviève especially for her.
(Merci Geneviève!!!! On adore le tapis!!!)
Meanwhile, downstairs in the parTEA room...

Still waiting...

Mikiko has arrived to welcome the new guest.

She's also brought some paper hats!

New beds have been made and the dolls are very impressed by the new guest room!

The beds have been made in Texas by an extraordinary and very unusual family that you can see here . The place is called Shannon Ranch. ( How I wish I could visit right now!)

What is our guest doing?
Maybe she is taking her time because she is crossing the oceans on the back of an elephant?
A bit like this?

Maybe not...

Something exciting is happening in the dolls' house.

We are waiting for a special little guest.
Charlotte keeps on going out to see if the guest is here.
She has got a special welcome balloon for her.

Emily and Anne have organised a welcome tea party.

Anne has made some paper hats.
But we have been waiting for a while now and Anne is loosing patience.

Meanwhile, Charlotte has decided she would fly up in the sky. Maybe it will be easier to see the guest's arrival from a cloud!

Our guest in on her way.

She shouldn't be very far.

Just to give you a little clue: she is a Travelling Doll and she has come to spend a month with us to go through some Papillon Bleu UK transformation.

I will tell you a little more next time.

We are going to have 3 guest for the occasion in the dolls' house.

It will be fun and very girly.

Maybe a little like here:
