I have long admired the work of Christine of Dandelion Fair but whenever I have looked in her Etsy Store I seemed to miss the listings.
Since the arrival of my new baby, Lily, I seem to collapse at the end of the day only fit for an hour of internet flicking and I was lucky enough to spy this teeny chap.
Many years my Great-Aunt Nell used to knit and crochet all sorts of wonderful toys and as we grew up she kept on knitting for all the children in her street. She was a real gem of a lady and I have a soft spot for knitted toys.
This little chap will fit in my toyshop nicely.
Now for something completely different.......we are taking Lily to the seaside! So exciting, especially as there will be no flying or foreign currency involved.
I am going to the North Yorkshire coast not far from Scarborough. I have never visited this area before but it looks beautiful.
So, where should we go? All advice gratefully received, remembering we will be travelling with a baby, I mean a puppy!!
We have rented a fabulous looking barn conversion from English Country Cottages a company that we have used quite a lot. Two priorities for me were Wi-Fi and a modern interior, so I think this place will be a success.
Not all of it! Only part......
but it looks yummy! Even if it pours down with rain we should be able to be comfortable.
Hard floors are also a plus, if it is really muddy and the puppy pees.
So, where are the best places to visit? Local dolls house shops would definitely be a big plus!!
