Been in and out of the sewing room today, taking pictures of the few bonnets and aprons, finished and ready to put in a teeny tiny bonnet shop.
Driving myself crazy, or crazier, that's what I'm doing! How the heck do you post a little title and then add a page to your blog? It should be so simple...but not for me! Oh no! I've read and looked and hunted and searched and called Lynn. Lynn said, "I will call you tomorrow morning, Mom".
So, meanwhile in the sewing room, isn't she lovely, this pretty doll from Germany? Sometimes I just feel like holding her. Andee sent this doll to me back when they were stationed in Germany.
The little sewing room makes me happy. I've just got to get busy sewing again so there will be pretty items to add to my new page...if I ever get there.
and this sweetest tiny little baby doll...
and this other pretty girl doll, all from Germany. These dolls are wonderful to hold. Have I told you how much I love dolls?
Oh my goodness. Growing up in the 1950's, one of the most exciting times of the year was when the Sears Roebuck Christmas catalog would arrive. It took some serious looking and studying to decide on which doll I would ask for. That was almost as exciting as finding that very doll under the Christmas tree on Christmas morning.
One rarely caught me without a doll in my arms...and this went on until I was about sixteen years old. Dolls were much more fun than thinking about boys. We were living in Summerville SC, not far from Charleston, when this picture was taken.
Wherever we lived, Mama gave me a closet in the house to use for a dollhouse and I was always busy taking care of the dolls and keeping house.
Better get busy! You know how Mondays are, and Eli has an appointment with the groomer for a bath and a good brushing...and Poppy gets off work at noon...good gosh, and Lynn is supposed to call! Hope to be back soon.
By the way, I never heard a word about the bunny cage. Guess it must have been sold.
