The Wooden Horse, Ted's And Pixie's *~*

On Saturday I popped into my local C Shop and sitting in the corner under a mountain of worn out children's clothes sat this little fellow,  and I just knew he was coming home with me (£10)

Not sure what I am going to do to him yet, I will probably give him a sand down and a wax

So for now I have sat the old ted's on him,...

This is my new Pixie girl I made from the Tilda books, she is larger than the other two I made, so not so fiddly to stuff...

I crochet her a pair of shoes....

Then Pixies had a ride on the horse....

Well  I am sure Lette ( my baby granddaughter) will enjoy riding him when she is a little older...but for now he is in my sitting room with the old ted's 
Love Thea xx

  3. Wow ,what a find for £10! It looks lovely with the teddys riding it. Love the pixies slippers too - they are really dinky.

  4. Hi lovely Thea,
    What an adorable post....
    Your rocking horse is beautiful and I can imagine your little Lette, having such fun on her!
    We have the Mailege pixies arriving at work just now and I can honestly say I think yours are far more beautiful with lots more character*****
    Now on to those Teds!! Love their sweet expressions as they 'pose' for the picture!!! hehe..
    Keep cosy Thea, very cold here dear
    Love Maria x

  6. What a great buy, your baby grand daughter is going to love playing on it when she is older. My daughter has never forgiven me for getting rid of her rocking horse.

  7. I think your pixies and teddies are rather pleased you brought him home! Ada :)

  8. Hi Thea! Loving the rocking horse, Lette will love it when she is older I'm sure.I just want to know how you managed to get the face so round on the pixie doll? It doesnt look as if there is a seam down the face? Please share your secrets!! Love, Anne

    1. Hello Anne
      Thank you for your lovely comments
      I made the Pixie girls from the pattern in Tilda's "Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle" book they have just round heads no seams
      Hope this helps

    Your Pixie maiden is truly beautiful and I LOVE her crochet slippers. I find her dress hangs perfectly; most elegant in fact.

  19. Hello,
    The horse is gorgeous. I think children prefer these simple playthings, they encourage them to use their imagniations. you don't see things like this around so much any more. A man in my village makes them, but not quite the same as this.
    I love the pixies! The shoes are beautiful and they are so pretty. your home must be such a beautiful place. xxx

  20. I love the teds... mine sit on an old dolls house. Lizzie


Thank for your lovely messages they make my day,Thea x
