Happy Happy Birthday Poppy

My precious niece Pops is ONE today!
Happy Birthday Pixie.
I was inspired by the wonderful collages for the Homespun Fair and the Vintage and Homemade Fair, and above is my attempt.

This is the prettiest part of the garden today, thought you would like to see it.
Now, I have been dying to show my Bloggy friends what I bought you and at last I can unveil it as you will have unwrapped it this Morning!
Ta Da........

Oh yes! A padded patchwork dolls house! Whoopee
I love the red gingham roof with a tile pattern sown in to the padding.
I love the applique flowers around the window, oh and the pink floral shutters...
And these little chaps are lucky enough to live here
And then when you open it up there are all these brilliant squashy pieces of furniture as well as pets (cat and dog and little pink mousie!)
In the garden, either side of the path are two pop up flowers!

Here it is from a different angle

And I cant resist showing you my own favourite, a white weatherboard shop with red roof and green woodwork! My very own shop!

I found this in Lewes at Christmas. Typically I was looking for a present and I spied this at the back of the shop. I stood frozen to the spot and stared and stared. I had a white dolls House with a red roof for Christmas when I was 6 and I absoloutley adored it.
My eyes filled with tears as all the memories of it flooded back, needless to say it came home with me and here it is with Poppy's first Dolls House.
