Tinker Lantern by the garden fountain
Harvest Tinker after sunset
Last year, I made another Tinkerbell lantern. But I’ve never posted it, due to a lot of events. After the treatments, I completely forgot blogging about it. It sat on our dining table for over a year. And now, I finally have come around to capture some photos and post them. Better now, than never. 😉
This lantern I made with tissue paper, which I’ve glued on the outside of the jar. I’ve printed Tinkerbell, cut out the silhouette and glued it to the inside of the lantern. As a harvest decor, I’ve got one of these plastic berries from the Dollar Store and wrapped the wire around the top of the glass jar. For the girls, I use flameless, battery-operated flicker candles. Mainly Sara loves to sit the lanterns on top of her shelf next to the bed, and turn on the candles, before she goes to sleep. After the season, this will be a new addition, used as a night light. She already cleared a spot for it in her room.
Katelynn and Sara nibble on the herbs in the greenhouse for several days. And now, we can add strawberry to the mix. The strawberries are small, but they are so delicious. The girls loves the sweet taste of fresh strawberries.
“Hey Pals! We have some nice red strawberries in the greenhouse.”
Hmmm, home grown strawberry!
The strawberries are small, but are very delicious.
Poor ol’ Donald Duck gets mad in this chaos. 😀
This upcoming Saturday, Katelynn will march for the last time this season. In the meantime she’s preparing for auditions, the Christmas Concert, more auditions, daily practice, even more auditions, and not to forget: the Walt Disney World Trip on Spring Break. 🎵🎷🎺🥁🎶

In 2007 when I was at Walt Disney World for the second time, I went into the “Disney’s Days of Christmas” store in Downtown Disney. There was a small room with all other seasons in that store. When I saw Minnie and Figaro on that carved pumpkin, I had to have it. In 2011, I came back and picked up Tinkerbell. Unfortunately they had only “Frozen” costumes and knickknacks in that room, on my forth visit in 2015. Aren’t these figurines adorable? I have to ask Kevin, if he can order me some more spooky Mickey & Friends items of Jim Shore/Disney.
In 2011 we were at Walt Disney World (this was my 3rd trip to WDW). Two of the many characters we met were Thumper an his girlfriend. On the first day, we saw only Thumper. And we’ve got a photo with him and Katelynn together. A few days later, we went back to Animal Kingdom. And this time, Thumper was accompanied by his lady friend.
