Alienore's Birthday Party

Everyone was looking forward to this big event eagerly and counting the days. The excitement mounted but alas disaster struck the day before the party!! Mum came down with a bad bout of stiff neck and could not raise her hand even. However after a lot of massaging and streching and applying ointments today she is able to sit straight without pain.  So we decided although we are a little bit late but still the birthday celebrations for Alienor can be extended a little bit longer.

So as soon as the chef came to know that the party was going ahead today he jumped up with glee. Infact he was so happy that he had one too many and started dancing about!

He made one big large bowl of candy and before it came to the table it was suspiciously looking a bit depleted.

Strawberries and cream made some wonderful goodies to eat and arranged them on her table.

there were lots of puddings..

icecreams, cakes and desserts.

Nightingale brought her little flower instruments along to play and sing

Sujii the silk fairy sang a lovely song

The woodland undergrowth fairy queen made her rare appearance to spread her magic.

Exoteeque quickly made himself comfortable and made sure he got the best seat.

Wave the mermaid made it just in time as she had to come on her horse Shore from the deep sea.
Little Pippa was there eagerly waiting for the party to begin.
Infact everyone was looking at the door expectantly and holding their breath when....

they heard the door open slowly and heard the rustle of silk and tinkling of anklets...... at last Apsara the gypsy dancer had arrived to dance for Alienore!

After all the dancing and singing was over everyone gathered around the table for a final photo session before they could dive in and have the goodies to eat. Little Tricksy could hardly wait to get started she almost had her hand in the bowl of candies before being told off by the others.

Everyone brought lots and lots of flowers and the whole house was filled with their fragrance.
A wonderful day was had by all.
Hope Alienor was not exhausted by the extended tea party.
I am sure the party is still going on and if you want to join in you can go HERE and get merry.

Little peeks

I don't know why I keep showing you just the feet...

 Maybe I will show you a bit of the skirt too and then once she is complete decide if it is worth showing the whole doll.

Spring is here I think? The gorgeous peony is just unfurling its petals in my garden.

Love the intense pink colour of this Rhods.

Pay it forward.

As you can see from my previous post that Veronica's gift took me totally by surprise as I had completely forgotton about it.

Now I would like to invite you to play Pay It Forward with me.Here is the deal with a Pay It Forward. Just in case you don't know what I am talking about. I will send little gifts hand made by me to the first 5 people who comment on this post. Please do not forget to tell me if you want to play or not when you comment and email me your snail mail address.
You will then find your own people to pay it forward to by blogging about it. Try to get 5 people (or usually if you can't find 5 to play along ...try for at least 3) If you can't find any...well, then you can just send me a gift.. Hope the explanation is clear as mud lol!  Please be patient with me as I am going to be rather busy for the next month so it will all be done as and when I get to do it. I look forward to you all joining in my Pay It Forward.

Surprise!! And come and play Pay it forward !

Yesterday I heard something pop through my letter box and I heard a squeak. I went and opened the door and found a packet. I wondered who could have sent me a packet as I had not ordered anything nor  it was my birthday. I decided to check it out. When I opened it low and behold this little fellow with big bright eyes popped out and I don't know who was more surprised he or me. I just stared at him and he at me when slowly my brain cells started chugging and the penny dropped. This little fellow had come to stay with me all the way from Canada! He was surprised because I was looking at him with a dropped jaw. Well I quickly recovered and made him comfortable so that he would feel at home. As you can see he has already got a friend. Choc became all agog with excitement when he found that this little guy was going to stay with us. Thank you Vee for your wonderful pay it forward gift. Love the fabrics too they are gorgeous. I have been trying to do this post for the past 2 days but have been having problems with blogger trying to do the post on the ipad. Everything freezes when I go into the sight. So sorry I couldn't do it earlier. Finally decided to do it on the main computer. I try not to use the main computer so that I can avoid typing with my finger that has been giving me trouble for the past year. Thank you once again for the lovely gift.
