The postman never has to wait long when our door bell rings, especially when he carries a parcel and I have spotted him by the gate. Total surprise this morning, a gift from WENDY.
A while ago, Wendy and I had a discussion about our favorite colours. Although I probably had more to say about the colour green and why we hardly ever have green around the cottage. Only in plants and always the colour green comes in at Christmas. The reason why the colour green is banned most of the year is because when we first arrived Soggibottom had been painted very darkly in green paint. Every door and wall. I love the colour green, but not in the cottage.
This beautifully hand made little old dear has been made by Wendy especially for the cottage. In my favorite giving colours. Every layer of the dolls outfit made with care, it must have taken ages.
It took a while to eventually unwrap and read the very sweet letter enclosed. Freya thinks everything is chewable at the moment. She's getting used to the words "MINE", "yours".
This is MINE, you can look.
Eventually this little old dear will have a permenant home beside the fire place, for obvious reasons she will live with the cottage bear in a puppy safe window for the time being.
She is made from a Magic Threads pattern "Secret Keeper". At the moment I haven't any secrets to tell, but when I do, she will be the first to know. I've named her Phoebe, I was out voted years ago when the family voted on a pup name for Amie. Out voted again with our new pup Freya. I will have a Phoebe after all.
All beautifully made in my favorite colours. Thank you so very much Wendy, she will always be in a very prominate place for everyone to see.
Wendy's blog.....is from the heart. It also has the added antics of Tia the cat..
As you see, Phoebe fits in well with the other new cottage feature. Freya wasn't chosen especially for her colour, she is a Ruby Cavalier, as she grows her colouring will darken, different from Tri Colour Amie Soto Blossom. I'm sure Amie would have approved. Freya is a loving and giving little dog. Her colouring will suit her.
Freya has her own blog.
You can trot along yourself and see what Freya has been up to on Catflap Cavalier
Have a great weekend, we are off to the beach again tomorrow, mixing and socializing while the good weather lasts.
