The Babies Have Wheels!

Long ago, BMG
(that's Before Mini Graff)
I fell in love with Gill's baby prams and strollers
and I promised the miniature babies I'd ask Gill
if she'd make one or two for us.
However, in the meantime, Mini Graff arrived
and was in desperate need of his own wheeled chariot
which you'll remember Gill also made,
so the babies had to be patient and wait their turn.

Eventually arrangements were made for strollers for them
and just a week or so ago an interesting box with British
stamps on it arrived in the post!
With greatest excitement I got it open
as fast as possible!
Parcels with miniature treasures inside are like presents,
aren't they?
2 grandkids were here and they were almost as excited
as myself about opening the box.
Their first question...
Do the wheels go around?
Can you tell they're boys???

Young Christopher may have opened his eyes briefly
 to see what the noise was about but even when he was
strapped into his side of the new stroller he was
happy to continue his snooze.
Adelaide, on the other hand,
crowed and kicked and clapped her wee hands
and couldn't wait to settle into her seat!

Here they are ready to go for their first ride!
Their mama is so happy not to have to carry her
chubbby babies everywhere now.
The babies love the rattles
(that match the upholstery)
which Gill so kindly sent for them :)
And, of course the wheels go around!

Next out of that interesting box came a
gorgeous pink creation.
This one is for Emma Rose but,
as she's wearing her christening robe at the moment
and didn't want to crush it up,
one of the dollhouse twins consented to model for us.
She's about as interested in proceedings as Christoper,
yawning widely, ready for a nap ;)

Of course, being male, Mini Graff looked things
over to make sure there had been no damage
in transit and all was safe for the precious babies
to take their first outing.
Luckily I wasn't sleepy like certain small babies,
and I enjoyed play time perambulating babies
all around the dining table ;0)
RL Graff and both young grandsons are very
impressed with Gills' creations.
As for me, I adore them!
Gills attention to detail is amazing,
these little strollers are made exactly like a RL stroller.

Thanks Gill :))


Would You Care to Take Tea with Me?

School holidays Downunder,
grandkids spending a day with us.
We go around the miniatures and see all the new things.
It was the perfect opportunity to take a photo of the lovely
petitpoint tea cosy that I won from Rosanna

Would you care for a cup of tea?
Please take off your hat and have a seat,
and help yourself to a macaron :)
and we'll enjoy a refreshing cup
from beneath that pretty cosy.

Every time I walk past my pretty kitchen roombox
I enjoy a moment peeking in,
and think how lovely it would be to
invite Rosanna to have afternoon tea with me.

Sending hugs to you Rosanna
and I hope your hands are getting better.
