....fruit pastels.......

...i have found some pretty pastels 
on my travels...
...this lovely mabel lucie attwell box...
...a cute spring lamby and some
signature 'm-l-a' chubby cheeked children...
..and with some thorough squirrelling
i rummaged about and found a bag of
darling dolly knits...
...all for £2!
the lady selling them asked if I had any dolls....
hmmmm....what to say?
...well just a few(I didn't mention the monkeys, the bears,the squirrels........)
...a perfect fit!


  1. What cute little cardis. Little Jam has requested coats for Emily Button and Vanilla. I'm plucking up courage to have a go. Dolls clothes just seem so fiddly!
    PS Sherborne was lovely and sunny this afternoon!

  2. Lovely fabric, I'm sure you will turn it into something great! :) x

  3. Ooh I love MLA! and those cardies are just gorgeous!

  4. Oh so jealous, I love, love, love Mabel Lucie Atwell x

  5. What a lovely find.. such a pretty box full of tiny treasures

  6. Such a pretty box :) The hand knits are so cute. I hope the shop owner didn't wonder at any hesitation in your reply about the dolls. Maybe she has a whole room full of dolls and was looking for a fellow collector to justify her habits. ;) Wendy

  7. Just darling!!! Love your sweet work! so so adorable xoxo

  8. Oh, the little dolly clothes are so sweet! Reminds me of when I was a little girl, all my dolls clothes were hand made just like these.
