New & bigger mole/Rabbit house.

I decided to build I bigger mole house & then my son had the great idea of adding a rabbit hole in the top. 

It was quite a good idea as it lets in more light. 

Today I added the final touches, wallpaper & furniture. 
It look very cosy doesn’t it! 

This one even has a flap on the back that you can close. 

Thank you for reading.

Lovely Town Couple (JP).

Showing the box contents. 

It says: 

Cinnamon Rabbit 's older brother 

is Chocolate rabbit' s older sister 's boyfriend. A heart-friendly romantic that connects pictures and music. He says to Chocolate Rabbit older sister “I love you so much  and you can make everyone look nice with a wonderful surprise.”
They greet everyone in the town with a hello. 

Chocolate Rabbit older sister,

 A nice dress designer working in Town. I'm always thinking, "I'd like to have a nice presentation of time when I was wearing a dress." The big rose flower bouquet is a gift from a cinnamon rabbit brother. Fortunately walking hand in hand are the wonderful couple of dream weavers in the town.

Next to original “Stella” ie. Chocolate Rabbit Older Sister. 

These can “hold hands” with their special made paws.

2018 Adelaide Hills Doll & Teddy Bear guild annual show

 This week my daughter & I went to the annual Doll & Teddy Bear show.
This years show was only small, but they still had very well made entries, & enough trading stalls to make it worth while.

The competition theme was "A Night at the Opera"

My favourite entry, a miniature room box.

The Competition Entries

Cutest entry in my opinion 

My Daughter is a teddy bear fan, & there was a trader there who makes all her own Teddies, she said she has about 400 in her house! 

Bear With Me trading stall

Some new Beanie friends

More Teddy stalls

Opal Babblebrook & her Aunt Lilly Bobtail accompanied us to the show & helped us find & pick out some miniatures to take home. I have a feeling these rabbits were thinking mostly about what Rocky & Crystal needed when picking things... oh & we found some new fabrics for the Brambles to use, trying to persuade them to steer away from the satins & silks popular so in town...

Opal & Winter's Autumn Adventure

Opal & Winter's Autumn adventure

This is a joint story by myself & my 5 year old & 2 year old sons.

one sunny Autumn day Opal Babblebrook was wandering around a park

then she met her friend Winter Evergreen

suddenly there was a loud noise nearby & a car appeared through the bushes!

& then another

& then there were more! Poor Opal was so surprised she fell flat on her face!

Opal & winter decided to move away from the noisy cars. 
Look it's a giant hopscotch game, the squares are bigger than we are! 

Come Opal I can hear those noisy cars again, let's climb this log to get away...

What on earth is that!!!

Oh no, I'm surrounded

Opal started climbing a tall tree. "Winter, they won't be able to reach us up here."

"Um Opal, are you sure about that?"

"Mm, I might have to rethink this!"

"here come the cars!"

"Let's walk through this long grass & maybe they won't follow us here."

"look I found a mushroom"

"Actually, I think it's a toadstool..."

"Here is the tallest, most difficult to climb rock, surely those cars can't get up here! Or can they?..."

"Please Stop running away," said the cars "We just want to be friends." 

"Ok, lets be friends" said Opal & Winter

You can find the tutorial for it on YouTube, just look up "Where the Gnomes Live"
