Where is the summer?

Rain, rain and more rain, I can't quite believe whats happening here at the moment, I just heard on the news that people are fighting over clean water. I hope all you fellow Brits are safe & dry & don't catch this horrid cold I'm suffering with.



On a more positive note I was going to blog this morning about 2 new editions to my Etsy shop, but I woke up to find they had both been bought yay! They have gone to a very good home & I couldn't be happier.




They are tooth fairy dolls, that come with a little welcome note and 3 personalised note cards, I have just one left that I will be adding to my shop as soon as I've finished this post.



Also I treated myself a few days ago & went sales shopping on Oxford Street, I discovered that a Primark has opened at the Marble Arch end, which is dangerous! I got this cute summer dress 'with pockets!' for £10 & this gorgeous coat for £20, now I just need the rain to stop for long enough to wear them out.

  1. Oh i love the tooth fairy dolls, they are adorable! I still want to get a little madam doll too.

    I'm totally fed up with the rain too, but then again i'm not sure i'd want the blistering heat they've been having on the continent either. There's just no pleasing me...

    Hope your cold is better soon.

  4. I'm in love with the tooth fairy dolls (swoon)! Too bad my son wouldn't feel the same way, I'm quite certain his transformers would beat her up :( I need a little girl around here...maybe I could justify the purchase if I knocked one of MY teeth out :D

    If it makes you feel any better at all ...where I live it is 125 degrees outside with humidity! I would gladly take some rain away from you :)

  11. Love the toothfairy dolls.

    I know what you mean about the weather. We've had torrential rain here in Bangkok too, almost every day for 2 months! But at least it's not COLD like England. You must be miserable after living in the US :)

  13. What a small online world it is sometimes isnt it,so often many of us seem to know the same people especially amongst etsy/flickr/bloggers! its like you said in your post the other day how etsy sellers were meeting up for coffee in real life,in a cafe in Australia and how great that sounded.wish we could all do that but we live too scattered apart i think. So anyway the reason i came to all this and wanted to post a comment was i see you have She loves stars at the top of your 'blogs you like' list Mandy, one of my closest friends is Anna, and she is Hanna's cousin,(hanna is She love stars)love kat

  16. re-reading the earlier Harry Potter books would be a good idea to remind yourself, as i found i had forgotten a few things that happened in HP6 (it was about 3 or 4 years ago, although that's very hard to believe!) BUT can you wait that long to find out what happens??? i couldn't!!!

    loving your primark bargains! and the tooth fairy dolls are adorable!! i wish i had a little girl to buy one for as they are just perfect. xx

  19. renting the movies is definately cheating, and there are only 4 (5 if you go to the cinema) so you'd still not be prepared for number 7!!

  20. Hello Mandy!
    I just purchased your adorable Patience Brown for my daughter Chelsea Nicole's room - it arrived today and I'm thrilled to pieces! Love it more than words...I'll be saving my pennies for more of your beautiful things. Thanks so much for packaging it so carefully and further for the lovely stickers and note card - I may just frame it, too! Watch my blog for a little shout-out of your etsy shop in the coming days - I just HAVE to share with all my readers - you are such a find!
    Wanted also to mention that I love this blog of yours - it makes me miss London terribly (I lived on Palace Court near Kensington Palace for the best four months of my life!), but living vicariously is better than not at all.
    Thank you again for such a lovely product - happy blogging!

  27. i really like the little brown girl. so few awesome illustrators like yourself do brown girls with curly hair like me (and like my future daughters) I'm sad that one sold, but I will keep looking back.

    Love your work!
