the Platts in Blueberry Land

First of THANK YOU to all of you for the amazing comments and emails. You don’t know how much each and everyone one of them mean to me (and John, he’s been reading them too and is blown away how wicked awesome my readers are!) I wish each of you the best of luck! I’m sorry it’s been a few days since the last post. Jasper is teething, really teething right now and wants to be with me all the time- poor little muffin. We’ve tried all the homeopathics and naturopathic remedies but , sometimes, it’s good to have Advil.




We went to Blueberry Land today according to Benjamin. Peter in Blueberry Land is one of his favorite books and visiting a blueberry orchard is pretty magical for him right now. I went earlier this week with some girlfriends and knew I had to get the family there this weekend. We now have 30 lbs of blueberries in the freezer. That’s a lot of pie.

I’m working on some lovely dolls for Etsy this week, including a baby! I’m expecting 11 new sweaters from Nonna mid week so the dolls will be nice and cozy for these chilly nights ahead.  I’ll also have some dolls up on Natural Pod this week.


Oh, I almost forgot about this shot I took today on the way to Blueberry Land. We followed these goats for about 10 minutes, they were just walking along the street totally oblivious to us. I love country living. Especially more so now that there is a sushi place opening up! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you may know that the lack of sushi where I live is a source of unhappiness for me.. no more!

    Wow, look at all those blueberries! That would be heaven for my kids. Makes me laugh seeing your pictures and to look at our one pathetic little blueberry plant.
    We had a sushi place open here too, but I really don’t like sushi. Good for you though, make sure to go and enjoy it!
    Good luck with the teething, it’s hard, I know.

    How funny, today we went to a farm close to paris… to get fresh air for sure but to pick some raspberries… 4kg of raspberries… I wish we could share … I love blueberries too.. certainly my favorite fruit to top my muesli..
    I totally understand for the sushi … in england, there are so many places here back in france… much less… so we learned how to make them… may be you should… give a little kiss to your poor little teething baby… I have been there twice… and have a nice week… mrs fabulous dolls maker!

    Christine- I didn’t know blue berry bushes looked like that either, we have one in the back that the DEER keep on munching on so it never gets a chance to grow. The sushi is a treat once in a while. I grew up in Vancouver where there is a very large Asian population and sushi places are more common then MacDonalds, it’s a real comfort food.
    Hello Pascaline, the raspberries have passed here, I’m sad that I didn’t get to pick them this year- they are my favorite berry. I’ve tried making sushi, I have the mat, the nori everything- but it just isn’t as good. I can never get the rice just right, I always end up putting too much or not enough vinegar in it. I can make the Korean style sushi though. Hmmm, you’ve inspired me to try again. I’m sure there is a how-to video on You Tube.
    Have a great day!

    Sorry, I just laughed out loud again about the deer. I still empathize though. Darned animals! 🙂

    This is the first time I’ve seen your site, I found you thru Mothering Magazine. I was so thrilled to read that you have a teething Jasper! I do too! He’s 6.5 months.

    Your dolls are sweet….I especially love the blanket ones…

    Your photo of the blueberries makes me want to draw and paint!!! What a wonderful day! I like the tie-die job on your next post too! And I’m with you on the sushi… we just had a restaurant open which I haven’t been to yet (are we in the same place???). I love country living too but I miss all the great restaurants!
