During the auctions to raise money for those affected by the Queensland floods, I bid on and won a lovely doll made by Michelle over at Midge & Judy.
Miss Molly had arrived when we returned from our ski trip and was given to my daughter, who turned 5 on Wednesday. Here she is on Miss 5's bed.
Miss Molly has her own little dolly too, cutely tucked into her pocket.
Now this is Miss 5's main squeeze, the eloquently named Cowie. Cowie is the chief receiver of cuddles and absorber of tears in the house.
But how did he feel about Miss Molly moving in on his turf?
Hmm, not so good. But Miss Molly has a way with words (and knows some incredibly dirty jokes. Honestly Michelle, what are you teaching these dolls?)
Soon Cowie had come around to the idea of someone else sharing the bed.
He figures at least he's got someone to talk to while Miss 5's at school.
Michelle also kindly included one of her fabulous bags with Miss Molly. Made from a vintage tea towel, the bag has a koala on one side and budgies and a kingfisher on the other. Perfect for a young Aussie mum!
(You can find these darling bags in Michelle's etsy shop, along with some of the cutest baby shoes I've ever seen)
Someone else was quite smitten with the bag too.
There might be an ownership challenge soon!
Thank you so much Michelle for the gorgeous Miss Molly (and dolly) and the sweet little bag. They are a much appreciated addition to our home!
And because it's Friday, how about a catchy tune to take us into the weekend?
This guy is French but is singing in English, so I guess he's aiming for the US market. Has this song been seen out in the wilds of America or Australia yet?
This song is so upbeat, and the video clip has some cool effects. Can I admit though, I want to hand the man some barrettes and a pair of trousers one size up? Sometimes a girl likes a bit of mystery, and those trousers don't leave much to the imagination. I think I must be getting old.
Bon weekend, tout le monde!
