My Birthday Presents 1

A gorgeous new backcloth from Shelly depicting an English country garden with rambling roses in full bloom scrambling over a trellis and stone wall. Shelly chose this outside garden scene for me because she knows that I am now finding it almost impossible now to bend down to place the dolls on the ground when out and about since last years Arthritic flare-up.
Many, many thanks Shelly for your thoughtfulness and kindness as always.


The very first doll up to use the backcloth is my wide faced 1970 Trendon waif in a delightful little vintage-sasha dress set, a birthday gift from Sarah Williams. Thank you so very much Sarah. It’s just absolutely gorgeous….as your outfits always are. More photos can be seen of this dress and doll with more presents from Sarah in a later post.


Next on the scene is a close-up photo of a 1967 Frido Gingham NP wearing a wonderfully Summery Dollydoodle outfit put together by me from Judith’s basic range.


This little Trendon early 1970s tot decided to crawl onto the grassy set-up amongst the fallen blossom to have her photo taken.


She is wearing a sweet trendy little dress and long shorts by *sasha-smiles* who unfortunately seems to have left sewing for the Sasha dolls.


Another of my dolls, a 1967 Frido NP Dungaree girl who rarely gets to be photographed for the blog as she is rather a shy girl very consious of her lips, having been force fed by her young owner in her early years. This delightfully sweet and kind natured girl is wearing a OOAK Ruthsdoll’s dress and JJ sandals.


Thousands of grateful thanks again to Sarah for her invaluable help and support.
