Let me tell you a story

You could make up a childrens' story about these characters in Handmade Happiness's window couldn't you? 

Starting from the right let me introduce Scrap Sally (made by Pixie). She keeps herself to herself and is a bit shocked at the antics of her flamboyant friend Maisie (made by me) who is engaged to Teddy (made by Lindsey Agostinelli) who Scrap Sally is secretly in love with. 

Maisie is a good time girl who loves parties. She is always hosting parties and going to parties in other childrens' nurseries with lots of colourful cupcakes.
Scrap Sally doesn't like parties ('too noisy') and she doesn't eat cakes because she's watching her figure. She'd rather be left alone in the nursery with Teddy. 

Teddy is a quiet and faithful bear. He feels he must stick by his promise to Maisie although she tries his patience to the limit and he knows (secretly) that he would be happier married to Scrap Sally.  Meanwhile the birds (made by Michelle Green) gossip together about Maisie, Scrap Sally and Teddy and peck up all the cupcake crumbs after Maisie's many parties. 

Congratulations to my niece Lucy and her husband Craig on the birth of their son, Ted, yesterday afternoon. Can't wait to see you all!

This reminds me of Bagpuss. We used to love that progamme as children especially as the little girl was called Emily like my sister! x

This is the 4th time I have tried to leave a comment!!!
Love the story, obviously you missed your vocation as an author, or must be the journalist in you.
