Every year the dolls at Grandma's house look forward to a party celebrating new friends and remembering old friends who have moved away. This year the party will be In late September or early in October.
That being said, it should be noted that the dolls do have minds of their own. Our three newest dolls decided that they wanted to see the fairy garden that was outside the window where they sit. They wanted to watch the hummingbirds that played above the fairy gardens. The birds were enjoying their freedom to soar in endless swoops and dives. It does seem as if the tiny birds are playing outside the window from the time the early morning sun rays spread across the dew kissed gardens until the shadows of evening start to cloak antics.
Laurel The Wood Fairy
Laurel wanted to see what was outside of the window for herself. She connived with Cheetah (the families huge cat) to sneak the door open long enough for her and Lit'l Bee (our new Effanbee baby doll) to escape for a little while. Sammie (our new AG cousin) was watching as Cheetah stretched his body as long as he was able to so that he could reach the latch on the door. Once the door opened Sammie scampered out the door right behind Laurel and Lit'l Bee. Cheetah closed the door quickly behind them Just as Grandma saw the girls escape out the door. Grandma smiled and grabbed her camera so that she could take pictures of their adventure.
Sammie had to stand on her chair so that she could get a good look at Grandma's Fairy Garden
The Fairies keep a dragon by the front door of their flower pot home to help keep the garden spiders out of their house.
I suppose the dragon would seem very scary to such a little doll like Bee
My goodness! the fairy gardens do look so pretty from above - almost like the Emerald city from the Wizard of Oz.
It's time for the girls to go in now that the evening air is starting to feel chilly.
Here are a few sneak previews of the post Grandma will post over at Plum Creek Place this coming week, (after they are posted a link will be added to this post so you can see for yourself). First there are a few peaks at the new Mermaid Fairy Garden
And there is a small Mermaid Garden with a big conch shell for the fairy to live in.
There is a little Pirates Cove Fairy Garden too - my it does look like the Black Pearl is sneaking out of the cove to head out to the high seas.
We hope to see you over at Plum Creek Place next week.
Laurel, Sammie and Lit'l Bee along with Little Jo and all of her cousins will be back in a few weeks for their tea party. See you then!
