La Boulangerie…

October 30th, 2011

Simon & Adèle have arrived in their new home, a beautiful French Bakery. Adèle is taking a look at the macaroons in the shop window…

Simon impatiently steps inside the shop to take a closer look at all of the wonderful things the French Bakery has to offer…

Inside, there are so many delicious cakes and patisserie’s
on display for Simon & Adèle to choose from…

Claudette, the Bakery owner approaches Simon & Adèle
and offers each of them a delicious macaroon to try…

Adèle & Simon, part 2…

October 26th, 2011

Presenting Simon…
The second of two characters from a lovely
storybook of the same name.

Simon wears his school uniform of pale grey…
pantaloon style shorts, a white shirt and a orange jumper.
He wears a pale blue coat, with four buttons and two patch pockets.

Simon wears a bright yellow scarf
which because it is precariously placed around his shoulders
he’s sure to loose it, as he does in the book.

Simon is a cute little boy…
His dark wavy and unruly hair is covered by his grey school cap
framing his mischievous little face.

Simon wears grey untied laced boots, completing his ensemble…
is his satchel containing school work and colouring pencils.
As always, all hand~sewn and fabric is hand~dyed by me.

Details regarding Adèle were in my previous post…

or any other doll, please do email me
