I cannot believe how quickly the time is passing and I've been neglecting my poor blog again! I have taken quite a few photos recently but just forgot to share them on here, although some have gone on Flickr. Apologies to those of you who've already seen them on there, I hope you enjoy seeing them again!
Firstly I made this outfit for the Little Darlings, I made it with a view to selling and showed it to my friend before putting it on Ebay. Of course then it never got that far because she immediately wanted it! I'm pleased with how it came out, I love this girl in blue and white, being my favourite colours too! The socks are pale pink and white stripes because as you know, my dolls are never 'predictable'!
And because I couldn't resist, here are a couple of closeups of my sweet little Rory, who is painted by Lana Dobbs. It was raining as I took these photos, that fine rain that quickly drenches you, but I thought she looked so real with the raindrops in her hair!
Like most doll collectors, I'm always on the hunt for props for my photos and was pleased to find this umbrella in a shop in Malaga, which is just the perfect size for Mouse, my Dollstown Seola who is approx 45cm tall. And of course it's perfect for her to protect her pale skin from the sunshine! I made her some slouch boots using soft leather in two different shades, cream and dark brown....she's very pleased with them and wanted to show them off with her umbrella. The umbrella, by the way, has a fully working metal mechanism and is actually supposed to be used as a shade for smart phones!
A 'just because' close up ...
Next we have some photos of Sam, my Elfdoll Hana Angel, who is a tiny 20cm tall. She came with me to Fuengirola last week and was totally prepared to help me with my lovely breakfast at the Danish restaurant at Los Boliches. She brought her own tiny silver knife and fork!!
Later she enjoyed a drop of Dandelion and Burdock that Brian, my hubby, bought for himself at the Iceland supermarket. I had never drunk this before and having tried it, I don't think I will again!! Tasted a bit like cough mixture to me!!
Whilst in Fuengirola we spotted a little bit of England!! We aren't sure what it was all about but these structures, which appeared to be all made from metal, were just being put in place on the side of the road. In the background you can also just see a very attractive model of what we think is supposed to be Saint Basil's Cathedral in Red Square, Moscow. We laughed at the 'telephono' sign! The box was locked and empty!
A rather strange looking Lady Liberty....but someone worked hard to make her, she even stands on a plinth like the real one!
And finally in Fuengirola, the lovely statue on the roundabout, which is not a temporary structure, it's always there. Spanish roundabouts are generally really attractive, whether because they're covered in lovely well tended flowerbeds, olive trees, fountains or, as in this case, nice statues. One day I might travel around taking photos of roundabouts to share with
you....there are some very pretty ones around here :)
Finally for today, I thought I'd share a photo of the local lake, Lake Viñuela, which despite being very low due to the fact that we've had so little rain over the last few years, is looking very pretty. This is the actual colour of the lake, I've not enhanced it in any way!
Well I hope you've enjoyed seeing the photos, and would like to take this opportunity of wishing all my lovely Sasha friends who're attending the Sasha Celebration Weekend in Nottingham, the very best time! I'll miss you but maybe next year!!! :)
