A Good Read and a New Friend

The beautiful sunshine didn't last very long here, I'm hoping it will come back soon, it's been more like early Autumn than Summer.

I did get a chance to finish my book though, 'The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August' by Claire North.

It was a bit different from my usual reads, but it's good to try something different! Harry August lives his life over and over, always born in the same year to the same parents, each life is different though depending on the choices he makes. The intrigue comes when a message is passed back from young child to elderly dying person until it reaches Harry when a child tells him the end of the world is getting nearer.

There's intrigue, suspension and mystery, a thoroughly engrossing read!

Now to introduce my new friend, my beautiful, darling Delores. She's wrapped up tightly and safely as she's had a long journey from the California in the States.

Delores is my first customised Blythe doll.

Look at that gorgeous hair, it's so soft, I'm quire taken with her.

As a Blythe doll she has pull strings that when pulled change the colour of her eyes and direction of her gaze.

She went into the garden to check out the fairy houses

Sigh... my beautiful Delores. And as I was in the garden, another shot of our growing Sweetpeas

Take care


  1. We seem to be going between Autumn and Summer here too. Delores is beautiful! Your fairy houses are adorable. I love your sweet peas. I haven't grown them for a few years now. I do miss them. Take care too.

  2. Oo, that looks a good read, I'll have to check that one out. Love the packaging that Delores came in!

  3. Hello!
    I have never heard of these dolls before - we learn something every day, don't we? Will you be collecting more of them?
    The book sounds very interesting - I will certainly look out for it!
    Your garden is beautiful - wishing you a wonderful weekend!
    All best wishes,

    1. Blythe dolls have an interesting history back to the '70s, I love the customised ones xx
