Today day 2nd and 4th with a lovely Beatrix:-)

Here she is checking out the outfits with Asha...
 I love her new from the box shiny hair...
I have made them into corn plait


 good times! and my first curvy doll fashions ever...
(do you recognise fowery jersey from previous boot haul?;-)


 it's sort of flat! we need to try harder!
oh wait, how picturesque....


 ...oh, I'm not so made to move... luckly it is not acually sunny...

 oh the curves <3

 The other trip menat to be an easy one - just too climbe the hill behing the B&B and check out the view... it was stipier than we antucipated...and it started to rain... curvy muddy path between soaking wet ferns soonb became not fun at all...
nbo light, no doll pics and a failure - loosing all teh hight you have just conquered...

Bootsale 06.08.17

that was a good one, however I have been on 'probation' already;-)...

...I remember very well that i did not buy quite a few 90s Sindies with terrible but comlete utfits, few dressed Kens, i did not negotiate with lady selling huge box of rotten Sindies and quite a few original clothes from the epoque, as well as not investgating numerous bagged MyScene and Bratz clothes...and Clawdeen AND blonde Rapunzel for 2pounds, oh dear...

I walked along the alleys with my 4 yo daughter. It always amazes me how collected she is seeing all these toys and understanding which are nice and collectible and 'for Mummy' (and the importance to buy only original Ponies, LOL)

Daddy as you can see is not much better than me...he apparently desired all these mechanic/construction sets all his life LOL

many floral baby clothes and jersey...and games games games...

Doll wise after some hesitation I got myself mini collection of fancy china for a doll house
....then suddenly among many uninteresting contemporary ones, face down - was her, with her unique shade of brown hair and vintage casual outfit<3
oh as a vintage she was 'expensive' - the whole  2.00 instead of 0.50;-)

and still with a ring!

...aaaaand she is the 1984 Heart Family Mummy...the unflattering dress soooooo desirable...


versions<3
but we all know which would be the bestest for me...

 ...oh...then I have let it go slightly...and got myself a mysterious and unusual girl with very real looking and not-so-sweet, mature face which i love:-)
oh, and the small natural eyes:-)

Luckly she had obviously Hasbro body and markings...
she used to make a sound - another clue...so I made sure she is not working properly anymore:-)
death by soaking...

Luckly it says 'S Club Limited' on her bum..which brought me to answer she is a celebrity doll - a member of a pop group... S Club 7 Rachel Stevens.
whatever (rings the bell but very quietly...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-X0EjwF8o0g)


here is the original human - so fresh and young, what an offence Hasbro;-)

sooooo 90's;-)
and full set of dolls

...and then we stumbled upon box...
the one with Sindies... maaany mattel babies including the vintage ones that I just got on ebay...

but then face down again was this blonde head... I have been dying for ...for like 30 years or so....
Just look at her! The proper Bambi blue eyed...wearing the bestest pyjamas ever...
none of the contemporary polyester Care Bears fashions don't even come close...

good lord, look at those lips! 
the anchor was still in her head so its nothing
 AND her hair still has original braids and veeeeery old elastic...which i decided to remove for bath
 She turned out to be from a Sharin Sisters playset...how amazing<3

My green eyed brunette Courtney finally has a friend... that calls for a session together...

....and guess what - my daughter has chosen Superstar for herself... one with proper vintage her...
proud mommy...and very happy collector as she accidentally comes from the same set as Skipper <3
PLUS a genuine fashion:-)

 yay! It became one of her favorites - tortured by numerous and endless foamy baths;-)


yay, what a day<3
/a spa day)

Lake District Asha

Last year we too a great adventurous trip to Lake/Peak District.
Here is the record of Made to Move Asha being activated at last and having a blast in amazing Northern English landscape <3

Few stretches and redress when out-of-the-box at last!


she actually is wonderful - I'm happy to spend holidays with her before the decapitation LOL

and off we go - DAY 1

 heather and sea and sea of heather!








 oh I can do all of this with my arms:-)




oh...quick chance of outfit - and ready to hit the road again:-)
First stop - Derwent Pencil Museum in Keswick, Cumbria...lots of precious grahite in mines and lots of nice timber from local forests<3

 These are tickets-pencils as I already have some aquarelle pencil sets and not really do that much repaints, right?
 and off we go!
some dark mossy and wet forest - not the easiest place to take a decent picture while hiking


 oh wait! Made to Move pose!

Then after seeing some Peter Rabbit goodies (where I forgot about the doll from excitement) we stumbled upon amazing gloomy lake...




oh that was a good one...

and TBC!
