In which we meet John-John's sister and a mystery girl...

This week started out fun and ended strange. First the fun part....

Meet Brigitte Kilburne, John-John's big sister. She got here yesterday, after staying in London long enough to photograph the royal baby (who as it turns out, shares part of his name with Shel after all; Shel's middle name is Alexander.) She's a freelance photographer who's starting to make a name for herself.












Is it just me, or does there seem to be a Kilburne family nose?













She says Will and Kate really are "that much in love," at least from what she's observed, and that they're both super nice.

Brigitte's not one of those paparazzi types - she mostly does fashion shoots and the occasional news story or event. She said she's far too lazy to chase people, anyway. "If I'm there and it looks interesting, I'll take a few pictures. I try to stay out of people's faces, though. I still get plenty of great shots."




John-John has a younger brother named Fletcher, who's seventeen and still in the Brit equivalent of high school.  His mom, Ashley, is a former child star/pop singer who's now a judge on Britain's Got Talent. His late father, who was, from what I understand, a good twenty-five years older than his mom, managed a band called London Zero. Everyone thought Louden and Ashely's marriage would last less than a year, but it lasted for twenty - until his father passed away, that is.

That was the fun part. Now the strange....

Maddy treated Jade to a dress from Gail Wilson. It came in today and they went outside to take a couple of pictures. Jade said she was climbing down from the tree root when she caught a glimpse of something in the old garden, just behind the Everest rock. She and Maddy went to investigate...














It was another doll.

She was too exhausted to be very coherent. She said something about looking for Shel before she passed out. They brought her inside, of course, but Shel has no idea who she is. Jade thought for a moment that she might have been Abigail, the doll he was partnered with, but he said she wasn't. Abigail was about his height and had short blonde hair. This girl is much shorter.





All we can do is wait for her to wake up and see what she remembers...

  1. Hmm... when we lived in the Treehouse, nothing good EVER came of strangers collapsing in the back yard. We haven't had anyone show up like that in the Wylde Kingdom so far.

    Brigitte is gorgeous. And that's a great Gail Wilson dress too!

    Good luck with your stranger. I hope it all goes okay.

  2. I'm not even sure where this is going. It's starting to sound somewhat Lovecraftian to me...

    Gail Wilson's stuff is beautiful, but she used buttons about the size of pinheads on the dress and pinafore. They look adorable, they're perfectly sized for the dress - and it took me twenty minutes to fasten them. I think I'm sticking with snaps...
