house hunting

  • Posted on May 12, 2012 at 6:51 pm

smidge went house hunting this week and found a lovely fairy house. she tried very hard to like it, but in the end, the annoyance of constantly hitting her head on the door frame made her decide to keep looking

the house that wasn't

sleepy time swap

after giving up on a swap that had gone missing for over a month, i remade all the goodies and sent it off just after new years. today i got news that both of them arrived…. at the same time! 😆
i was in a rush to get the first parcel off and forgot to take pictures of any of it, but i did remember the second time. the only thing i really regret not taking photos of was the dustbunny in a top hat, but what can you do? if i can just find the notebook i wrote my pattern in, i’ll have to make another one. it’s the nicest stuffy i’ve made so far (at least in my opinion :))
seepy time swap
the swap was to include a nightcap, nightgown or pj’s and a shawl or robe. smidge loved modeling it and i hope revolutionary cakes girl likes it as well. she likes blue and vintagey stuff. the dress is fine silk yarn, the hat mohair and silk, the shawl and shoes of cotton sewing thread.

these shoes are made for dancing
smidge seems to have mistaken this for a dancing dress. maybe ’cause she does a lot more dancing than sleeping?

cuddle time
she likes snuggling with the snail, who knew a snail could be so cuddly?

and a closeup of the snail
tiny snail
(for reference remember that smidge is only 4″/9cm tall) i crocheted him out of sewing thread with a 1mm hook. i need to work on my closeups with a macro lens. this picture came out really grainy when i zoomed in. i didn’t find out till later that my iso was on auto and got taken at 1600!

seepy time swap and finally a shot of all the goodies, including some story books and a concentration game for her little ones to play.

i’m making more of the hats/shawls and dresses in different colors to put up on the etsy shop i have yet to open 🙂

smidge and beezie were in a lovely pj swap with revolutionary cake. unfortunately the post office lost our first package to her, and we are still waiting to see if the makeup one arrives. having sent it off at least the girls got to see what they received. (they waited till they had posted off their second attempt before open their own gifts. admirable self restraint i thought!)
sleepy swap 1
but here they are gloating over the huge pile of packages.

sleepy swap 3
beezie was ready to dive right in, but smidge insisted on sorting first.

sleepy swap 4
“look at all the stuff we got!” beezie cooed, we need to try on the jammies right away!

sleepy swap 5
don’t they look sweet! and they can’t stop cuddling their new friends! beezie is blowing kisses to aunty jo!

sleepy swap 6
smidge said i have to show off the cute bum flap! (beezie found that hysterical) then both of them curled up under their blankies and went to sleep.

4. dolls without faces

once again my realpuki’s steal the show…

i had every intention of getting noni, amberglas and crystalorn to help me bake tonight. i thought i could probably get my challenge photo while they were busy mixing. imagine my surprise when we all came into the kitchen to find smidge and beezie already busy at work. needless to say i took a couple quick photos of my helpful little sprites, and told the girls they could be in the picture tomorrow…

30 day photo challenge day 3 part 2

fast forward several hours. i was still disappointed with my challenge pictures from earlier, but all that was about to change. enter a mischievous little sprite named smidge. smidge was playing in the kitchen and somehow got up onto my knickknack shelf. peeking out through a lazer sculpture a friend brought back from a mexican vacation, she was grinning engagingly and then i saw it. look at me
lovely reflections serendipitously staring back at me…
i grabbed my camera and began to shoot.
fun house mirrors

soso irresistible
my little sweetheart saved the day! 🙂

2) a picture of your doll next to a stack of unusual objects that equal their approximate height.

at first i was tempted to measure them against chocolate chips, because everything goes well with chocolate. 😉 but then i figured, that in keeping with the one blue-stocking theme, it would be much better to measure the girls against a stack of yarn or books…. ever indecisive i used both! 🙂
how tall am i?
so, one littlefee, eilidh, is equal to 7 partly used balls of yarn or 16 miniature books.
one pukifee, crystalorn, is equal to 4 partly used balls of yarn or 9-1/2 miniature books
one realpuki, smidge, (with wild hair) is equal to 2 partly used balls of yarn or 7 miniature books (or so she claims and who am i to argue?)

…….and beezie (up on top) claims she is the biggest of them all! 😆

just hanging out

happiness never decreases by being shared.

what we found in the woods today

  • Posted on August 18, 2011 at 6:35 pm

beezie and i went exploring in the woods. she climbed up this bush to get at the ripe buffalo berries.

peeking over every log and under every bush, but she wouldn’t tell me what she was looking for…

mushroom or toadstool?
maybe under here?

spying a glimpse of blue beezie pulled back a leaf to find an unusual seedpod

checking this out
beezie snuck in for a closer look. “you’re exactly what i was looking for!”

greeting the newcomer
smiling, the stranger climbed out of her pod

smidge says hi
hi, i’m smidge. can we be friends?

found a mushroom
of course beezie said “yes!” so off the new friends went exploring together..

mossy trunk
they found many wonderful things

giant toadstool
then rested together on a giant toadstool

it is just the start of many wonderful adventures together….
