Spent the most wonderful morning with DD at the Kensington Dollshouse Festival. It was a delight for the eyes and a continuous lesson in saying no - for me as much as DD. We kept pulling each other this way and that trying not miss the miniature things. We both lusted after a beautiful Art Deco house that was for sale and a beautiful chandelier that worked...but these items were far more than our meagre budget but we could dream.
I must confess we didn't escape without succumbing...both DD and I have a passion for bears...so her dolls' house now has garden furniture and a collection of bears and of course they couldn't sit in the garden without food and entertainment....chocolate cake, some beverage and a few books to read - the complete Twilight series (now I might have chosen different books for them to read, but they are her bears so the ten year old won that one and I might have selected the beautiful Bristol blue glasses, but we were down to our last pennies so the thought was there. I of course would have filled them with wine, but I think heard they to have hot chocolate to go with there cake).
We then went out to lunch and of course the bears had to come out and have lunch too... (the waitress was delighted)
Then we went home and they needed more refreshment (bears are very hungry creatures)...so here they will live until we go to Cornwall and they can join the dolls' house but then maybe they will want to come back to London or Dubai and play with me...
