So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye!

I think it is finally time for little Angelina to go back home to her mum.  She's been here now for more than a month, having arrived some time in December.....and prior to that I know she was with Dee in the UK, so I feel it is time for her to leave....she is a little homesick and misses her mum and their farm.  It has been lovely having her to visit, she's a very sweet little Toddler and a cute size to sew for!

I hope she's enjoyed herself staying with us and learned a few Spanish words too....hopefully not naughty ones though, not like my own son did, very quickly, when he first came here :)

Here are just a couple of photos of Angelina taken in the garden today.  I made her a new coat and striped leggings, and she wanted to model them in the sunshine....it was really quite warm today and not really necessary for her to have the hood up, but well we all know what Toddlers can be like...very determined!!!!  The coat is fully lined with checked cotton, except for the hood which is lined with a constrasting corderoy.




The coat isn't really 'wonky' at the front, I think it's the way she's standing! (Well I hope not anyway!!!!!) ;)

  1. You couldn't always send Baby Bertie back instead of Angelina...pop a dark wig on him and tell Jen that Angelina has shrunk in the sun...and become a boy while in Spain...
    Jen won't notice :)

    1. At the moment, I probably wouldn't notice!! My poor Sashas are so neglected jut now and I'm sure Miss Angel has enjoyed staying with other, more poractive Sasha Mums far more than she would have if she'd stayed at home.

      She does look lovely in that shade of blue. She seemed to insist on pink in the past and it has been great to see her in other colours - don't want her to grow up into a Barbie....

    2. Oooooh don't give me ideas Ronny......and the truth is, Jenni would get a little 'bit extra' wouldn't she? LOL ;)
      Might try that one :)

    3. LOL Jenni, I don't think there's much chance of her growing up into a Barbie, she seems to enjoy her food too much! I hope she's not put on weight as she's been tucking into the chorizo and paella, not to mention all the mantecados and polverones left over from Christmas ;)
      I'm glad you like the blue, I think it really shows off her tan :)

    4. It is amazing that she used to be a blue-eyed blond! The eyes were uneven shades and her hair was falling, so off to Auntie Shelly's hospital she went. Now, I can't imagine that tan with odd, almost transparent eyes and dirty looking blond hair and baldy bits.

  2. Angelina's new coat is beautiful, perfect preparation for her return to this damp island. She looks quite the little Mediterranean girl with those repainted dark eyes, tanned skin and dark hair. I hope she has a safe journey back to her mum and the farm.

    1. Thanks DollMum, I hoped the baby blue would suit her as it was nice and soft....and yes, she is going home with a bit of a tan, all that playing in the sunshine has helped rid her of her pale Welsh complexion ;)

    1. Thank you Anne! No, those brunettes and raven haired beauties can get away with lots of nice colours too :) And the blue looks good in the sunshine too of course....which we've had a lot of over the last couple of days!

  4. Angelina looks like she's had a lovely visit with her Spanish cousins and is rested and ready to go home and see her Mum and tell her all about her adventures.
    Great coat just looks so bright and cheery on her.
    I love your photo's Sharon, you can see her features so beautifully including her beautiful eyes, I may have to try Paul's camera for the close ups... heaven help me!!
    hugs Dee xxx

    1. Thanks very much Dee, glad you like the coat and the photos. I would say to give Paul's camera a go and if you don't like it, you can always go back to your own again. I love my camera, of course I have no idea of all the things it does! LOL but hey, who cares! Of course we do also have very good light down here, it can make for very sharp photos....however, it can also be a challenge as it is sometimes TOO bright!!! But at certain times of day I can get the best light, or through the leaves of the lemon tree :)

  5. What a very lucky little girl she is to be going home with such a lovely hooded coat just right for the weather that the UK is experiencing at the moment.
    Adore the way that you have plaited her hair to keep it neat and tidy during her long journey home to Wales. Perfect coat colouring for her stunning dark looks. Bet that Jenni can't wait to have her little daughter back home again.

    1. Thank you Kendal, I'm glad you like it! I hope that her mum will like her new outfits and her coat, and that it keeps her warm in Wales :)
      Oh her hair!!!! It was getting everywhere, so this really was the best option, it's a bit untidy but at least kept it out of the way.

    2. Heehee! Her very grown up human sister had the same kind of hair (now, sadly, she straightens it all the time) but when Shelly put that wig on her, thinking it might be only a temporary measure, she turned into Hannah as a 3 year old and I just had to keep her that way.
      Though my hair is poker straight, there is a photo of me looking just as messy as Angelina tends to get at 4 years old, the result of a stupid school photographer who took portraits of the biggest kids first and didn't get to we little ones until after two playtimes and a PE lesson!
      I actually like to see the Sashas in not so perfect mode sometimes and Angelina has a very distinct, little tomboy personality. She likes pink, but doesn't do frills!

  6. A wonderful post of the upcoming departure of this delightful toddler, Angelina. What a stunning toddler with her dark complexion, gorgeous hand painted eyes, ebony plaited hair and now the happy addition of a lovely baby blue hooded coat. She is perfection! I think it is wonderful for Sashas to visit other Sasha moms and dads and, when they are shown on the blogs, we all can enjoy them too! Thank you Jenni and thank you Sharon!! :) xxx

    1. You're very welcome Ginger, I'm glad you've enjoyed seeing her here. I wish I could think of stories of her adventures here to share with you but I'm hopeless these days with stories...such a shame!

  7. Love her pretty coat! It would be so hard to send such an adorable little one back home... LOL

    1. Thank you Lynn. Yes, it's hard to send her back but I thought I'd do it sooner rather than later, then I won't get so attached LOL.
      Her mum did say she could stay as long as she liked, but I don't want to monopolise her any longer, she needs her mum now ;) xx

    2. Ah, but does her mum need her.....Now, where did I put that tin hat and those ear plugs? Hope she behaved well for you.
