31: My Best Part of 2014

So in review, I decided to use Poppy my little Lati Lami BJD as my doll for the December photo a day project so I could ascertain whether she was indeed a 'keeper', having recently sold my other three BJDs.  I am still no closer to really knowing the answer....she is sweet and cute, but I do find her a little hard to pose in comparison to my larger the moment we will just wait and see...perhaps she will decide to move on...perhaps she will decide to stay.

Poor, poor Peggy Sue

Poor Peggy Sue, she went from being elated yesterday morning after the arrival of her new red boots.....  to be inconsolable in the afternoon after the loss of her Bestest Hat Ever that matches her Bestest Coat Ever....   The planned outing to look at Christmas decorations was cut short after scouring the path we had walked from parking the car to the cafe where we had lunch before we were due to begin our afternoon...when it was discovered she had lost her hat.  

Even Little Owen hasn't been able to cheer her up.

This photo was taken last year, not long after the coat set arrived.  She just loved it and it was perfect for her.

Poor Peggy Sue

These boots....

What have you got there Peggy Sue?

What's that?  What are you looking at?

A new pair of boots?  Wow, they are great.

Made especially for you?  Aren't you a lucky girl?

Sending a thank you kiss to the lovely lady who made them for you.

Peggy Sue is looking very festive in her knitted red dress and matching suede boots!

'These boots are made for walking...'

ADAD - December: 1 - 10

Having recently been working on downsizing my doll collection, I sold three of my four BJDs.   I couldn't quite bring myself to sell Poppy though and thought to make sure she is a 'keeper' I would spend the month with her doing the 'A Doll a Day' photo challenge. 

The first 10 days are below.

1.  Fruit

2. Grass

3. Pop!  Giggle....

4. Free   If you love something set it free...

5.  Me!

6. Joy is.....cuddling a friend

7. Weekends are for....playing with toys and riding your horse.

8.  Simple Pleasure....reading a good book

9. Decoration

10.  Closed door....hmm...this closed door has no handle!

Some fabric arrived for Peggy Sue's birthday.

Peggy Sue was delighted when a package arrived all the way from Australia today.  Enclosed was some fabric for her birthday - she insisted that some sewing be done STRAIGHT away - she of course asked very nicely so who was I to refuse?

Thank you 'Aunty' Kath for the lovely fabric.  Look at the pretty dress Mum made me.

A lovely dress made with some New Zealand fabric was also in the package....which Peggy Sue has her eye on!....
