My work gave us a couple of days off for the Ekka.
So I went to the op shop.
There were queens, West Germans and bears....oh my.
We ran into some other old friends at the oppy a while back too. Papa Moomin and Horsey's foreign cousin, Slotneck Holeback led the group of newcomers into our home.
They seem to have settled in nicely to the animal house although Slotneck is already missing in action.
The queen and the other princesses are whooping it up in the girls' dorm.
Meanwhile there has been a small bit of making at home. The Divine Ms M did not like shirts with long sleeves so I have printed m's on them all to make them more palateable.
The old chairs that I bought for the flairy godmother's offspring were returned for our youngest
but got a bit mouldy and tatty so they have been rejigged with some quicky spray paint and some good old Grip lock universal primer.
She is very happy with the result and has been using them for various activities.
Unfortunately, Lola aka Chew-bacca, started eyeing off the tea set. She has now moved onto the chairs themselves, apparently finding them quite tasty with an earl grey or three.
