Not quite sure what Roo thinks she is doing here...

6/30:  Left out to dry

7/30: In Hiding

8/30:  This could be trouble Roo!

30 Days of Roo - Days 1 - 4

I decided it was about time to do another 30 Days One Object series and as we have recently been to Australia, thought it quite appropriate that Roo should feature.

1/30  Roo

2/30  What are these?

Roo, hasn't seen daisies before...all she has seen is dry desert so rather surprised by the little round objects on the green stuff.

3/30  Standing on one leg:  

What do you mean I am cheating by using my tail to balance?  You must be imagining things!

4/30 Grey Sky?

Hmmm...Roo is confused, the sky is grey and the air is very damp and rather miserable...what is the meaning of this, she is used to large expanses of blue sky and warmth to laze around in!

Peggy Sue goes looking for Little Owen.

Peggy Sue has heard that Henry's little Trojan teddy bear may have gone missing in action...and she is very concerned about Little Owen as she hasn't seen him days, weeks, months!  Or so it seems to her.  

She asks the Radio Flyer crew if they have seen Little Owen.

They all look rather vague...

Well let me think...says one...um, now where was he?

Over there...says another pointing in yet another vague manner.

Perhaps Bomber knows.  Peggy Sue thinks to herself.  

Have you seen Little Owen?  She asks.

He is about this tall...

She hopes Little Owen hasn't been eaten.

Have you seen Little Owen?  She asks Mr Cool Dude Kiwi Bear.

Well, now, man, I mean little girl, I think, well, um...no.  Perhaps out in the garden?

Peggy Sue looks for him in the garden.

She looks up.

Have you seen Little Owen?  She asks

Little Owen.  She calls out

Where are you?


I wonder if he is in here?

Do you think he might be in here?  She asks.

Hello!  Anyone in there?

Oh dear sadly it seems Peggy Sue has had no joy.  Feeling rather downhearted she wanders away.

A little while later...

Hello Little Girl, whatever is the matter?

Who, sob, are you? sob  Peggy Sue asks between tears.

Well now I am Gordon Golly and I can solve all your tears and fears. The stranger tells her.

Can you?  Peggy Sue asks doubtfully.

Why yes of course I can, now tell me what is the matter, why are you crying so?

I can't find Little Owen, my teddy bear friend.  I have looked EVERYWHERE for him.  Peggy Sue tells Gordon Golly.  Do you think you can find him Mr Gordon Golly?

Why naturally.  I will find him in a jiffy and before you know it he will be back by your side.  Without further ado, Gordon Golly was gone.

I wonder...Peggy Sue thinks to herself.  Did I really see someone, or was it just my imagination?  Where oh where is Little Owen.  

Peggy Sue feels a little tap on her shoulder and turns expecting to see Gordon Golly again.

But to her surprise it is Little Owen.

Oh my!  She gasps.

Is it really you?  She asks.

Of course it is me.  Little Owen replies.

He gives Peggy Sue a little kiss on the cheeks.

I'm sorry to have worried you so.  He tells her.

Oh Little Owen, I am so glad to see you, I thought you had gone!

She gives him a big hug and tells him she is never going to let him out of her sight again.

I love you Little Owen.

Just because...

One of those 'just because' photo opportunities.

The lovely Kaya.

The Lilac Girls and more

Having been tempted by another doll today, and resisting temptation as  no I do not need another one, I decided to pay the ones I do have some attention.

 My assortment of red heads dressed in lilac, inspired by the Lilac flowers.

Peggy Sue discovered the pond today and is delighted with it.

She is wondering when there will be some wildlife in the pond...

She seems to be missing her companion Little Owen...I wonder where he is and what he is getting up to?

Continuing with paying attention to my existing doll family, this Gotz Little Sister 'Katie' doll has been wanting some attention for rather a long time now.  She is still currently known by her stock name, but is wondering whether she would prefer something else.

Being the same size as American Girl dolls means she can share their clothes and has chosen this pretty knit dress to wear today.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

Chrissy finds the perfect place for a photo session.

Chrissy has heard about the new pond and rockery that has just been made in the garden and thinks it will be the perfect place for a modelling shoot.  She didn't realise quite how cold it was out there today though and made sure she went back for a cardigan!

I would imagine that several more of the girls will be wanting their own photo session at some stage.
