The sweet Teresa from Sal & Pimenta send the girls some adorable dresses. As we just read Madicken ( like I´ve told you a hundred times… sorry) the girls have been role playing Madicken and her little sister Lisa a lot. These dresses were very warmly welcomed by the girls as they are a lot like the outfits those girls have on them on the Madicken films ( that we also love). I thought these are also great for the first day of pre-school and for Bubble Gum for her first day in the new bigger girls group in nursery. Cotton Candy´s is actual the same model they had for our Noel a Paris and Bubble Gum has a gorgeous dress with a peter pan collar and an apron. The dress is super pretty on it´s own but the apron makes it lovely and old fashioned.
I asked the girls to model for me a little and promised them that as a reward for working for mummy they could choose a little candy each from our favourite candy store Sweetheart ( where they sell not only sweet specialty candies but also those pretty paper bows to put on a package or to use in your interior and those little paper birds and butterflies, all shown in the photos). We ended up doing the photoshoot there. Although I must say it was a little difficult to try to keep the girls in one place as they kept finding new lollies and chocolates they thought they might like as their reward. Thank you Sweetheart for letting us shoot in your pretty store!
p.s. I told Cotton Candy she could take a small bag of jelly beans as she loves them. I was taking photos of her sister and in the mean while she had piled a huge bag of jelly belly´s ( you can see it in one of the last photos) so we have some to share later too now.
