There is definitely a little nip in the air, first thing in the morning now, and the trees are starting to change colour…..it must be time to say goodbye to September and hello to October. I have to admit, I like the Autumn….I don’t like Halloween and maybe I am just a bit grumpy, but I don’t like bonfire night either. I wouldn’t mind it, if it were just a ‘night’, but there seems to be noise, whooshing, pops, bangs and fizzing spanning almost a fortnight….the poor animals.
Anyway, we aren’t there yet, so let’s enjoy October. Olivia is the first little Fuzzpotling, fresh off the workbench for Autumn……she prefers the name Liv really, but when she is particularly mischievous, her full name feels far more appropriate! There is nothing like the sound of your mother calling you by the your full name to strike fear ……..even as a grown up yourself with teenage daughters….that sinking feeling can still occur!!
Anyway, Liv is a funny little girl…..like me, she has a weakness for cake. Her pink hair and soft mauve pink body, are echoed in the speckles of colour in her hand knit dress. Her beret and soft fluffy scarf, match her little denim sneakers. Beneath it all is a blue gingham pair of cotton bloomers.
I may be peaking a little too soon, but I will be decorating each of the little suitcases, that the dolls travel in, between now and Christmas, with some festive bits and bobs. I am really quite excited. I will also be adding a couple of Christmas decoration tutorials over the next few weeks, if anyone is interested.
To manage your expectations, ‘tutorial’ is probably a slightly grandiose description for what I have in mind…..more of a less formal ‘I’ve made this ..like this’ guide really….but it might be fun to share some ideas.
I really do need to do a a few chores this morning, and it would be wrong of me to blame blog writing for the lack of accomplishment in this area, so I will have to bid you a fond farewell for now.
Hope your day is full of giggles….and cake
