Inner child at large

A new season and a new batch of fairies from The magpie and the wardrobe. I just adore these pretty little ladies. The way they look like they have stitched together outfits from vintage fabric and lace scraps stolen from an unsuspecting grown ups sewing basket. Like borrowers inspired by Marie antoinette. I saw one of these in real life a few years ago in a display box at Liberty's and she was so magical I just wanted to smash the glass and stuff the poor dolly in my pocket! Obviously my honest side would not allow such a thing but I may be tempted to make a doll inspired by these for myself. Moving on, I have also found some more smiley summer folk by Julie Arkell over at Frank and this super cute Maileg mouse house from Tree house Blue it comes with the teeniest crocheted welcome mat and a match box for a bed, oh if only life was this simple. Then if you are feeling peckish after all the play, get a glorious sugar rush from some of these nostalgic sweetie collections from hope and greenwood at Pedlars. Even though I have no children of my own, it seems my inner child is still very much at large.
