Back in November when Gill and myself met up with Gayle, we arranged to meet up again when Gayle was back in England.
So about a month back it was firmed up that Gayle would get a train from Cambridge , where I would collect her and drive her on to Gill’s for a visit and some lunch.The day was today, after collecting Gayle and a drive, we arrived at Gill’s.
Gill’s shop was set up selling Wool under the name of Knitty Nora! A couple of her girl’s were out with their pram’s browsing.
Love this cord dress by Sarah of Vintage Sasha and boots by Lisa, Hat by Hattie and Tights by Michelle.
This young lady is in another Hattie hat with boots by Lisa and coat by Ruth Hartley.
A lovely row of Gill’s girls wearing Ruth Hartley or Ginny of A Passion for Sasha.
The twins were back from Sea Scouts.
Two of Gill’s No navel’s were having a very deep conversation!
While the third was riding her Chopper bike.
And someone was very busy in the Office!
Some of Gill’s children were ending out to school when we arrived.
Gayle’s girl Mel had come along with her. Both Gill and Myself offered to swap some clothes and a Sasha for her but Gayle for some strange reason declaimed!!
Mel was visiting the wool shop, Knitty Nora’s looking for some wool for a sweater she had planned.
Hattie also visited Knitty Nora’s for some wool samples for her summer range!
Lots of chat and laughter was the order of the day but also I had arranged to have a parcel delivered to Gill’s as the lady could only send on Thursday and I wanted to see this purchase as soon as possible!
Why? Because this doll I had found on ebay listed as a Cissy doll from the 60’s? I knew exactly what this doll was and it appeared that another Sasha collector had seen it too! So it was a case of waiting until the auction’s last day to see what would happen! I was working when it was due to finish so I left my best bid that morning and went off to work fully expecting that I would be out bid and that would be that.
So I was over the moon when I came home and remembered about the bid and found much to my surprise that I had WON!!!
I suppose you’d like to see what turned up? I must say I did worry in case it was a scam and I would receive a Cissy doll, whatever that was but I am very pleased to say that we were all very excited with what the wrapping revealed!!!
YES! a Shorts boy! I was so happy when I won this young man as I had to sell Nathaniel my shorts boy to help pay a bill and I did love him.
He only had his shorts and pants.
Such Gorgeous eyes this lad has.
Well Gill very kindly supplied me with things to clean him and wash his hair and then I dressed him in some clothes I had bought for him to wear.
Here he is before his wash and brush up!
He looks quite tired after all the excitement of his journey and then meeting three squealing woman!
I quite like his wet un-brushed spiky hair look! But what a face!! I’m still trying to settle on a name for him , it may be Rufus or Robin or something totally different!!
His new little baby sister Josie kept him company while he rested.
Well we had a lovely day and after packing up all my Sasha’s and a very new Gregor , we headed off so I could drop Gayle off to get her train back to Cambridge and I could take my new boy home to meet his Dad!!
This weekend we have some Visitor’s to the Village who will find mysterious happenings may require their urgent help !!
