Meet Coco

This is Coco.  She is a lovely life size handmade rag doll made painstakingly by a very good friend who lives in Bristol.  “Another present!” Our postie said as he handed me the package last week.  T is such a lucky little girl to receive more presents even when Christmas is over.

Little T welcomed Coco with a tea-party.

As you can see, they are fast becoming close friends and like to do things together like watch cartoons on LoveFilm on mummy’s laptop.

Play dress-up together – Coco in little T’s Spanish dress and T in her pink tutu.

And of course, must not leave Coco behind when out for tea with the grown-ups.

She’s a lovely doll, but since she is almost as big as little T, she startles me A LOT.  The husband once left her on T’s windowsill and nearly gave me a heart attack and as F’s dad said “She’s a little bit freaky isn’t she?”  She certainly is!

Now if you see my husband carrying what at-first-glance would look like a little girl like a sack over his shoulders, you will know that it is Coco and not little T.

Btw, Coco has also inherited little T’s old clothes!

    How fab to have a little friend. I imagine it is a bit freaky when there’s 2 people where you expect to see 1!!

    • That is so true, especially at night when I go in to check on her and I see Coco! Admittedly, she still makes me jump! 🙂

    Coco is brilliant! Sounds like T has welcomed her with open arms too – such wonderful photos of the two of them. Thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestory, fabulous post 🙂

    Ah we had a toddler sized doll once and it used to freak me out every time I went in my daughter’s room!

    Oh thank goodness, because as soon as I saw the doll I thought “how fun!” and then I immediately followed that up with “oh my goodness but that would freak me out!” I love that little T is already having so much fun with her – and I’m so glad that Coco is a new member in your household and not mine!

    I love that coco is hand made. Looks T is so loving her. I love that T loves dolls another thing she and Abbie have in common.

    • I love handmade stuff and envy people who are amazing at it! I’m just really bad at making stuff. Will never stop trying though, my one ambition now is t learn how to quilt – even if its just a small cushion cover! 🙂
