Dolls

Sarah Wallis, my sister in law, has a really interesting blog at http://circles-of-rain.blogspot.co.uk/ ; she does all sorts of creative projects and she is just about to sell some of her dolls at a craft fair. My favourite of Sarah's dolls was the donkey character Bottom, from A Midsummer Night's Dream, who wore a natty houndstooth-check tweed jacket not a million miles away from the type of jacket that McDad used to wear! For more of Sarah's stuff go to:
Then while walking through Marylebone with Gina yesterday we passed a street market that sold all sorts of things- jewellery, clothing, bags, and we came across a stall that sold dolls and we were rather taken by this one: the Pussy Riot doll! (from www.etsy.com/shop/indigobarnottdolls)
I have a nagging feeling that the dolls are plotting to overthrow humans and take out places at some time in the not too distant future...

Sarah's dolls are fabulous - I am sure they will sell well.
