|12:41 pm - What an idiot!|
I missed out on buying a brilliant knitting book because I just couldn't make up my mind. Alan Dart's Irresistible knits. Cute little animals and over 50 patterns! Only £10.95 and now its going for £23 on evilbay! WTF is that about? GREED!!! I despise it. So I shan't be getting the book until all the hoo hah goes away. Perhaps after Christmas the frenzy will die down. Back to books from the library. Perhaps they have it there.
See what I mean? CUTE!!
They got it so wrong I thought I'd have another go.
|you are hotpink|
Your dominant hues are red and magenta. You love doing your own thing and going on your own adventures, but there are close friends you know you just can't leave behind. You can influence others on days when you're patient, but most times you just want to go out, have fun, and do your own thing.
Your saturation level is medium - You're not the most decisive go-getter, but you can get a job done when it's required of you. You probably don't think the world can change for you and don't want to spend too much effort trying to force it.
Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

Now that's more like it! In truth, I'm more complex than just one colour. Aren't we all?
|you are turquoise|
Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.
Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things happen.
Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

Well that's the wrong colour!!! I'm pink, magenta pink. What are they talking about? Ha! I need to answer the questions again until I get the right colour or rather, they do!

|09:58 pm - A very sad day|
A very dear dolly friend died today. He had been battling Leukemia for some months. He passed away in his sleep with his family around him. A relief from the pain and distress for him, but he leaves a very large hole in the hearts of so many. He reached me in a way no one has done before and was a very special person. I miss you Joe.

There's two in a tub! Rolo is looking perplexed as usual while Twinkle enjoys froggy and bubbles. I think she also enjoys having Rolo scrub her back. Sweet little tiny dolly children.

Hubby sat her here. I knitted the hat and painted her.

|11:00 pm - Bookcase rooms|
This is a work in progress. Not a wonderful photo, sorry.
Top room is for my Puki Piki Rolo who will soon have to share it with Puki Pipi Mwah! then they will both have to share their bodies between Fizz and Twinkle. Yes, I have a few faces for PUKI. Close ups have been shown already.
Second is Cherri and her family. She is Berri's non identical twin. She is on the left with her daughter Grace. In front of them is Tulah Kish. On the right is Raul with Grace's twin, Verity. Next to them is Riley Kish. The Kish kids are just visiting. Long story, but this family have a story of their own to tell in Berri's saga. I was going with a cream and purple theme, but it doesn't seem right. I think some of these rooms will be used as sets and therefore change as required. I may get bold and paint one of my settees. I think the screen at the back will be my inspiration.
Third are The Fat Fairy beauties. Coco (on the bed) and BonBon by Tinybear. 1/12th scale. This is the least finished room. Not even the flooring is right yet. Theme, pink and green. As if you didn't guess! LOL.
Last but not least, is Saffron's room. Theme, leopard print. She is Berri's doctor and friend. With her in the long blonde hair is her love interest, Sven Evans. Not yet introduced. I have to cut his hair and re do his face up. I'm not happy with it yet. I have the most gorgeous wallpaper for Saffy's room.
This is an overview of what it really looks like. There is another shelf above and below these. The bottom one holds books and patterns and stops the whole thing falling over. The top one has my 14" Betsy and Barbara McCall dolls. I can't reach to take photos of those, so they are just for display. Grace and Verity's bed is up there too.
Now if only I could find a piece of wood to fit a bracket I found in the shed, then I could get another doll house up!!!

These rooms are on a corner shelf unit. I've papered the back wall and carpeted the floor.
