Treasure Hunt



Hasn't it been a lovely few days! We are really enjoying the sunshine at the moment, hope you are too. If I look out of the window I can see a very sunny garden but life here in the stockroom is a little chaotic. Dottie and i have been so busy restocking our shelves recently that the sun is going to have to take a back seat this weekend...
Would you like to see what we've been up to?
Well how about going on a treasure hunt if the weather where you are isn't all that sunny. See if you can find the items below somewhere in our Emporium. It really is worth having a rummage there are new things all over the place...

Buckets with holes in...


Please click on photos to enlarge

Ballet shoes...



Ursula Undress...



Two birds, three cats and a bunch of flowers...



And, yes, as I feared, those two little minxes have got themselves some of their own products ...



Have fun!

Oh such lovely lovely things. Oh though, that young lady surely needs some undies. Ursula dear, perhaps a trip down to Marksies?

I love your blog and the gorgeous photos you include but I really had to comment on this post. The little pink book "English Ballet" - there was a copy of that floating around our house when I was growing up. Only strange because I grew up on a remote sheep property in south-west Queensland, Australia and ballet certainly never came anywhere near my radar!! No idea where it came from! It's probably still in Mum & Dad's house now; we are all hopelessly addicted bibliophiles with books up to our ears!

Hi Kim,
I love 'Millie & Dotties' little emporium...a real pleasure to visit.
Hope Ursula will have a new outfit created for her soon...she's far too brazen...I have heard stories about this young lady you know!
;-))

Thank you for your comments on my blog, Kim - it means a lot...
Hope the sun is still shining for you...its raining here...

Hi Kim, I told myself no more spending money before I went to bed last night! Maybe just a little look! ;0)

I hope all goes well with the exam results tomorrow!

Love Lou xxx
