Something old, something new

I love the way you can add so much more to an outfit when you have girls - a hair clip here a headband there...

Miss L received the kind gift of a hair clip that is a perfect match for her new dress from the lovely Wendy.

These little clips come as alligator clips and on bobby pins - we are trialling them for Wendy - they certainly get put through their paces in this house I can tell you.

Wendy has loads of colours and styles to choose from.
She was wearing this dress (again!) today while she carried her dolly around as part of a game. 
The doll carrier is nearly three years old, I made it way back here and it's still used now, which is part of what makes making things so rewarding.

Gorgeous Steiner doll made for her at birth by her aunt.
By the way - did you notice that big gap in the front of her teeth!!  
The other front tooth is very loose too - Christmas pics this year could be interesting...

That's a pretty hairclip. Itb is pretty rewarding when the things you make are loved for so long, isn't it?

Awesome... I really must get organised and make my girl one of those carriers - she'd love it too me thinks. Thanks for the reminder.
