Little Jouet

A couple of days ago a new little doll came to live at my home.  She is is only about 4 1/2 inches tall.  I bought her from It is a lovely little site that has information on various collectable dolls and also sells preloved and new dolls and related items.  She is a Little dal jouet doll and I fell in love with her when I saw her picture on this site.
She came with no clothes and after hunting round the local charity and toy shops by me, I turned back to the thinking doll site to hunt for suitable clothing.  I dont mind making her some but, I also wanted something better than I can make at the moment.

I ordered her the dog suit and a little kimono.  She looks very smart in the kimono but, my favourite is the little dog suit.
She has such a lovely look on her face.  I have a feeling that she is going to be my favourite little doll of this size.  Sooooooo sweet.

Expanding Interests

Doesnt time fly?  This year is going by so fast and I cant believe how long it has been since I last posted on here.  My mini time has gone haywire the last few weeks.  My time hardly seems to be my own and I have been having problems finding time where I can just sit and do my hobbies.

Today I would like to start off by introducing new additions to my home.  They are Tangkou dolls.  Both are 1/6 so not my dolls house size but, I love them.

The first doll is the Aussie Tangkou.  My apologies because I do not think my photos do her justice.
I think these dolls have very pretty faces.  Also, their eyes change colour by pressing a button on the back of her head.

Next is the England Tangkou.  She is wearing a very feminine dress in contrast and has longer hair.
The eyes can also be kept closed with a different button press.  The eyelids have patterns on.  This is the England Tangkou eyelids.  I really need to find fitting names for them both now.
Tomorrow, back to minis but today I just wanted to share another of my hobbies.

Nearly There ...

Today I have been sorting through the mountain of stuff that accumulated while I wasnt keeping on top of things.  Isnt it strange that a mess takes such a short time to accumulate but, so long to tidy up.

I have been cutting up small pictures to use for various future projects.  I find that tiny pictures come in handy for so many things mini... cards, adding to book covers or pages, pictures, adding to labels etc.  And I have so much to do.  The next couple of days are busy in the full size world so I am planning Saturday to be my mini day.

I am still not smoking.  Woohoo, I am so pleased with myself.

I have also done a bit more painting on my market stall that has been sat there looking neglected for sooooooo long.

I really need to get on and make the items for it.  I will add that to my list... wow this todo list is getting way too long.  I really need to be good and get on with it all  :)
