Morning arrived on our last day together and we all made it to the restaurant for our last scrumptious breakfast together, no one wanted to go home.
I had bought along my BBQ set which comes in very handy at get together’s to take photos of all dolls attending the Celebration weekend. I had set it up in the hall the night before and after breakfast everyone headed down to the hall for a photo shoot.
(Above some of the dolls on the photo shoot, in the background, i can see Todd the toddler and little Twizel sneaked in to hitch a ride on the truck)
Above the three beautiful Cora’s belong to Jocelyn Rose and the one in the white dress is called Susanna)
(Above in the back ground is Janet’s unisex Gotz taking the role of Master Chef. (if anyone would like me to add there dolls names just let me know)
(Above my Marina and Trendon O’Neill are busy serving, whilst Henry and Kendal’s Miss Nobody look on.)

(Above Trendon O’Neill and Henry are in competition for the beautiful NP owned by Elizabeth Sockett.” Henry says,” You have no chance i am senior to you and i am more intelligent and wider travelled”. Trendon O’Neill, replies,”That may be so Henry, but i am better at DIY and i have more hair.”(Boys will be boys.)
(Above my favourite girl Little Bea owned by Kendal Hackney and re-painted by Raven.)
(Above whilst these little guys waited to get in line they
decided to form a band. ( the Gregor belongs to Gillan Buchanan, The Caleb with the Sashapotumus top belongs to Linda Simpson, the cora is my Nuru and the other Caleb is mine. I decided to dress mine as cowgirl and cowboy as a tribute to this years Sasha Festival in Texas and the top that Caleb is wearing with the horses on was made by Ginny Lee Myers from the 2012 Festival.
(Above is a panoramic photo of all the dolls together, thank you to Lorraine for sending it to me.)

After the photo shoot it was time to pack up ready to go home. I was just about to leave when i heard a voice saying “don’t forget me”
Perriot and i headed home.
My final photos are of my perriot, he is unique and it feels like i have waited forever for him to come home. He came with a card which tells his story and he loves to pose.
