Do you remember when I posted in Spring about the Mini Lalaloopsy Flower Fairies? I have been waiting for them to show up in stores and I finally got a chance to see them a few weeks ago. I had been looking for a pretty house for them when I found something even better!!! A treehouse! It was an old Fisher-Price Little People Fairy and Unicorn Treehouse that was part of a bigger toy lot at a garage sale. It was super cheap and was just the right size for my dolls.
It was very clean and well-cared for so I didn't need to scrub anything or remove the stickers. I just wiped it with a wet cloth and it was good as new! My little fairies felt right at home :)

I love this series of Mini Lalaloopsy but I think MGA Entertainment could have done so much better with the accessories. They could have totally given each of the doll a flower-theme teacup with a sweet pastry. Buying all four dolls would then complete the set and the fairies could have gotten themselves a wonderful tea party!
Instead, we only have one doll with a teapot and teacup so I ended up buying two Bluebell doll to get a second matching cup. The other accessories were either a handbag (ugh, like fairies would need that), some flower pots, flower necklace (which was the same model as the one for Mango Tiki Wiki doll but in a different color). I really like the umbrella but the other accessories were rather boring.
The dolls themselves are very pretty and have such gorgeous dresses! The only problem was with Rosebud Longstem who had a very floppy neck but otherwise the dolls were all good quality and had no stains on their face or body.
I have so much more to post about but this weekend is terribly busy! It's the Mid-Autumn Festival on Monday and my son had been rehearsing for his first ever Lion Dance performance. It's the last preparations until Monday night so I think I am quite nervous about it. Even more nervous than my son I think... Hahaha! Do you feel the same when your children have to perform?
In any case, I tried to relax with some calming tea from Harney & Sons Fine Teas, specifically the Yellow and Blue Tea which contains chamomile and lavender. The box is lovely and is worthy of display!
I was so pleasantly surprised to see how big and beautiful the tea bags looked inside the tin. And it smelled so good! My husband said the scent was too much like perfume but I did not agree.
But the real test remained the taste. My husband predicted that I would hate it because it would taste horrible. But he was wrong. It was absolutely amazing!!!! Not too strong and not weak either. So smooth and not the slightest bitter aftertaste (and I drank without milk or sugar).
Now I'll try to catch some sleep and rest before another day begins. I wish you all a lovely Sunday!
