Fairies in the Dell

I've been kinda busy these past few days, but nothing really exciting to share. Spent a couple of days at the movies with my guy, did a little shopping at Knox, managed to finish Wi's little dress and circlet, and got a little more knitting done, but that's about it.


I took a few pics today of them with the pumpkin candle holder which I purchased at Dusk with a gift card my daughter gave me last Christmas. (I also got a little white house which I'll show you later.)

The mossy mat I purchased to go around my Ent's feet turned out to be a complete waste of money, it just shed fibre everywhere and made a ruddy big mess for me to clean up! Not at all happy! I might see if I can lay my hands on an offcut of fake grass lawn when we next visit our local Bunnings store.

I always live in hope, although I have just about given up on my April Story doll ever arriving before we go on holiday. Anyone thinking of purchasing from them BEWARE ~ they tell huge fibs!!!

    1. Thank you Irene, I'm happy they turned out the way I visulised them. Sometimes it's a bit hit and miss. :)

      I don't think I'm the only one who's being told their doll will be shipped in two weeks when they make enquiries and when the two weeks are up, it's still another two weeks!

  3. Wahhh I hope you get your doll soon! I wish companies were more honest about shipping dates. I don't mind waiting and I know they only want to please us when We ask, but We won't bite them if they tell us 6 weeks or whatever.

    The dresses are adorable as always, so tiny and so cute!!

    1. Hi Alejandra,
      Well we arranged to take our holiday based on their second and supposedly accurate shipping date, but now that's changed it's stuffed everything up. You can imagine how angry I felt after I'd waited two weeks thinking I'd have her to take with me, and they told me yesterday it would be sent next Friday, now they've said the 11th November. We ended up cancelling our holiday, there was no point in rebooking anything until she's actually arrived. :( If they had told me when I first enquired it would be 11/11 I would have been satisfied, it's when they keep giving false hope and lie about dates that it really makes my blood boil.

      Enough moaning, thanks I'm pleased you think so. :)

  4. Oh man, I am sorry that you have been given the run around on your due dates. That is awful and to hear that you had to cancel your vacation is even worse. Hope your package arrives soon!
    On a happier note, your little fairies are absolutely adorable!!!!!! They are so sweet in their outfits. I really LOVE their wings. So delicate and perfectly sized.
    Hugs, Sam

    1. Hi Sam,
      I seem to have had a run of doll hiccups this year, but at least it's taught me to avoid dealing with small companies and to stick with those who have made me happy.

      The fairies are pukifee bodies with the last Realfee Event faceplates. I love them but I really need to find time to complete their faceups. Of course there is still another to come so I can keep to my traditional threesome. :)

  5. Oh Xanadu, I am sorry to hear about your problems with April Story. I have my fingers crossed for you that it comes before you go on holidays. Is there someone who can pick it up for you if it arrives while you're on holidays?

    Love the photos of your girls with that pumpkin. I never knew they made candle holders like that.

    Shame about the moss not turning out. Huh, I didn't know Bunnings sold off cuts of fake cross. Good to know. Would Spotlight have anything that could work? I know they have a section for artificial plants etc.

    1. Hi Alasse!
      Holiday cancelled as no-one home to accept a parcel.

      There was quite an assortment, do you have a Dusk store up there? If you have it's worth a visit, there's some lovely Christmas ones. :)

      Yeah, I shoiuld have known better. I don't know if I can get an offcut or not but it's worth a try. Looked at Spotlight but couldn't find anything that matched what I have in mind. That's not uncommon for me, I always want what I can't find. LOL! But it'll turn up sooner or later.

      Hugs,

    2. Oh that is such a shame you had to cancel your holiday. It's annoying when companies underestimate their timeframe. I'd rather they overestimate it and then you get the doll earlier than expected.

      We do have a Dusk store but I've never looked inside, I've walked past. It always smells really nice. I'll have to have a look next time I'm at that particular shopping center.

    3. I would have been prepared to wait. I only contacted them because we wanted to take a short break and planned it all around the date they originally gave me, but they kept moving it until we had no option but to cancel . . . I just couldn't risk it changing again. :(

      I think you'd like what they have at present, though you maybe a little late for the halloween stuff now. Happy hunting!
