First reborn Motherโ€™s Day:) and Muslin Nappy!

So, it’s my first reborn Mother’s Day!

Here’s Victoria in her Mother’s Day t shirt!

I have heard that people suggest the nappies for babies aren’t good for Reborns, because of the glue used on the tapes. I don’t know if this is true, but to be on the safe side, I tried making a muslin nappy, following a tutorial on Pinterest:

Here’s how I got on:

I’m quite pleased with this. Even better that I got 3 designer muslin squares for ยฃ1:00!

Happy Mother’s Day to those celebrating, and hugs to those who can’t celebrate this day. Xxx

The bouncing baby :)

Woo, it’s been a while!

I’ve been on holiday, hence the lack of posts.

I took Victoria with us. I’m very blessed to have a husband that didn’t mind her coming, and helped with posing her, looking for clothes, and even found her a baby bouncer to put her in!

So….here’s the pictures from our trip! It’s the first time I’ve taken a doll out, and although I didn’t quite make it to the “public ” stage, it was still fun!

Ready to go! It was very early when I took this picture, we had a long way to go!

A very tiring day:)

Well hello baby!

New dress! I love it, I think it suits her !

Everyday I’m cuddling ! A new onesie!

Another tiring day!

Going out again!

On the way home!

When we got home Aunty had finished the layette off! It’s also got mittens and leggings too!

And finally- in the bouncer that my husband found in a charity shop!

Sorry it’s so full of pictures! I hope you like them all!

Knitted dress and accessories from Aunty โค๏ธ

Well, it’s been a busy week, but yesterday we got to go to Knit and natter. It’s the first time that Victoria has been out, and her Aunts loved her, holding her and cooing over her!

Aunty (the one who bought the shoes and hats the other day) generously made Victoria a whole outfit! I hadn’t seen it, and I wasn’t aware it was finished until yesterday!

We put the outfit on her, and even introduced her to Aunty’s dog (who sadly, is very ill). She seemed to cheer up, momentarily.

Here’s some pictures:

The beautiful, hand made outfit. There’s also mittens but they’re not finished yet.

Introduction!

So, we had a lovely time!

I’m making a ear warmer for Victoria, and Aunty gave me some beautiful buttons to decorate it ๐Ÿ™‚

OOTD and Asda baby clothes !

I changed Victoria today, into this:

I love the way she looks in this. I was surprised how well it fits because I thought it would be too big for her.

Then I went shopping with my friend….and I bought this lot:

It wasn’t too expensive! I changed Victoria into the roses set:

I’m really pleased with it! I hope the other sets look as lovely! I may buy her the little coat too! ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, I’m hoping that I have big news tomorrow! Stay tuned, lol!

Take care!

A gift for Victoria!

On Saturday I went to Asda. I wanted some socks for Victoria, and found a pack of 3 for ยฃ3:00.

Tiny toes

She has cute feet, but they needed to be in socks!

Here’s the ones from Asda:

Socks – Iโ€™m not sure about the fit though!

So, I was sitting at home when her Auntie came round. She had bought Victoria a gift!

Don’t they look cute! Little sheep!

Here’s Victoria, in the clothes she came home in:

Doesn’t she look sweet!

Auntie also took her measurements…..I wonder what is coming next? She’s an amazing knitter so who knows!

Hello! Welcome to my blog/about me

Hello World!!! – an introduction

Hi and welcome to my new blog. I am a 50-something who collects dolls, (the sort that you play with) loves stationery, reading, art and journal writing and embracing my Inner Child.

I decided to start this blog when I got my first Ashton Drake Doll. I kind of felt they went together!

I have 4 dolls at the moment – 1 Ashton Drake (Pretty as a Princess – otherwise known as Victoria Elizabeth) 1 NPK doll – Isabella Rose, (selling!) and One boy doll (about to sell) and one Girl doll (about to sell).

I enjoy watching videos on YouTube, mostly of unboxing, doll collectors, role play, and art stuff.

I don’t envisage getting a whole nursery full of dolls, though i would like a toddler and perhaps one more Ashton Drake doll.


If you have a question, feel free to ask. If you are a doll collector then do say hello – Im not a member of any community so would welcome people who are collectors etc.
