Gemima and Esme


Isabel and Summer received these two dollies for christmas from their nanna Anne. That's my mum. Izzys is Gemima, and Summers is Esme(named by my mum). The dollies reside on the beds of their respective owners.

After a bout of gastro with Summer, a leaky exploding nappy, and living in Summers cot, Esme came out second best. She didn't quite survive the wash and needed some running repairs. 

Mum expressed when she bought them that they dollies should have a book to document their travels and adventures, what better place to do that than this blog!

  1. I love the idea of recording the Dolly's adventures. We created travel diaries for our kids to fill out on our last big holiday.

    1. Took me a while to get the knack of buttons. Thanks for linking up. My mum isn't very crafty, she bought these at a market!

  4. My mother-in-law has a traveling teddy bear which has traveled all around Australia and to Japan and New Zealand :) It's great to keep a special adventure toy like that :)

  8. The dolls are amazing. Nothing better than homemade toys.
    Your post has taken me back to a not so pleasant memory of my one of my own children and a similar experience with a teddy. YUK.

    1. If it wasn't such a special present from nanna, it may have ended up in the bin!!

  9. EW - poor Esme. Very glad I'm not a doll - so much easier to wash skin than wool. They are gorgeous - you do have a clever mum. My first link up with you Alicia! Thanks for hosting - i've never managed to get my act together for a Monday before. Bless a rainy long weekend!?
