I scored this little baby a while back, the vintage Starwberry Shortcake Garden House and I’ve been wanting one for AGES. This one was a steal! And it’s totally mint, came with a rough old box and instructions… It took an extra long nap for the kiddees and some Star Trek on while my little bro visited for me to pull it out (cause it would have been rude to lock myself in the sewing room of course.)
Austin is not one to be left out of anything….
Stella, says, ‘Come on over!’
Ramona is such a wild one! Check out that hair.
Don’t often see Nina and her sister Colleen out together.
Nancy and Audrey love a glass of homemade berry wine on a long weekend…
Isobel and Colleen
Colleen and Nancy say pets are welcome!
Audrey hanging out.
Stella and Ramona, hey lets get going!
Love these two!
Now, they’re not usually all this disheveled… but it was exciting! Clothes…
Might have to get the Berry Bake Shoppe out next time…
Audrey, Isobel and Nancy hanging out after the big beach day…
Audrey enjoying the view.
A stunning winter day at Muriwai today, the girls had a great time, it almost felt like summer.
Come and sit down!
Beautiful! Isobel and Audrey love it.
Seaweed and sea shells. Still pretty chilly in the shade.
I’m sorting through my Strawberry Shortcake girls, some need new homes, some need warmer clothes on, it’s freezing here!
I had an Almond Tea Party Pleaser when I was a kid, and she’s still my favourite, close to Plum Pudding. I do love the blue haired girls (Crepe Suzette and Blueberry Muffin) and Orange Blossom is lovely too.
I have three Sweet Sleepers, only one is complete however, Lemon Meringue, above are my Blueberry Muffin dolls. I find myself wanting to make Luna and Blake some giant Strawberry Shortcake sleeping bags…
Peach Blush is another one of the more hard to find dolls, and alas, my girl has no hat! She is in great condition though.
Plum Pudding looking snug and warm!
My Almond Tea girls, as you can see I can’t get enough… though after the Big Sort Out, one needs a new home.
My two pretty pegasus ponies… Skyflyer and Glittering Gem.
And Gusty, my all time favourite! Just a couple of photos..
Gotta love the red and green huh?
Glory is so pretty too.
This girl really is in mint condition, both Glory and Gusty are not new girls for me, but I couldn’t help a couple of new pics for you vintage My Little Pony fans out there.
Have a seat.
Where IS everyone?
Here’s Lucy. And Nancy’s loving the cool weather.
“Come on in a sit down!” says Isobel.
Mmmm delicious pink ice cream… will have to sort out a proper tea set for them some time soon.
Nina and Lucy love it when pets are welcome!
These girls are ALWAYS ready to party.
“Can I pass you something?”
Lovely Lime Lucy.
I’ve been getting out with Luna and Blake on more adventures lately, visiting some of our precious volcanic cones. Today was Maungakiekie, One Tree Hill, when I was a kid a pine tree used to stand with the obelisk, this probably Auckland’s most well known sights, it is the site of a Pa or fort. Such a beautiful day, we had a bit of a wander near the summit, but not quite the top most place to see the view.
But still stunning, we took in the western and southern suburbs.
We arrived around midday after our errands, morning is the best time for activities as the littlees need long afternoon naps. Then I get to settle down with Blake and Austin on my lap and write this!
Mushrooms and puffballs.
These girls had a blast too!
Lichen on rocks, and Lucy loves it as much as I do.
Such a beautiful day! Yesterday we found ourselves out on the East Coast before a wedding, we had a few hours to kill, so we headed out to the beach, Omana Regional Park this time…
In the carpark trying to get a little shade…
Oh and we had the best pizza I’ve had in years.. there’s a pizza place a few minutes drive up the road and they do a $5 pizza with one topping plus cheese, and oh will we be back! Will do a beach mission followed by a couple of pizzas and maybe a glass of wine? So, so good, go there!
