How about a few more “lace up the front” dresses?

~*~ Just a quick reminder that Felicity’s Fall Fancy dress ends this evening on Ebay. You can see the listing by clicking on the picture at the right side bar or you can click HERE and be taken to the auction. I hope you’ll take a peek…

A few days ago I did a post on the many Felicity dresses I’ve created over the last 10 years. I’m not sure why, but that day I almost broke a record on the number of views from people looking at my blog. My record is 512 in a single day for THIS post… Felicity’s dresses boasted me a whopping 486 hits. I missed breaking that record by 27 hits. Oh well…

Several of you mentioned you loved the lace up fronts on several of Felicity’s dresses… That gave me an idea for today’s post. I had to do something simple because Saturday is our big International Thanksgiving Dinner. There was definitely no time for sewing yesterday and today so simple posts will have to suffice!

I actually could only think of just a few lace up front dresses, besides Felicity’s… So I was as thrilled as I hope you’ll be when you see all these new lace up front dresses… Some wonderfully sweet, some a bit on the “what was she thinking” when she made that…some with real lace up front ribbons; some with lace up front appliques! :o)

I hope you’ll enjoy these…

This last one was a special dress I made for Kirsten…

You remember me saying I LOVED this picture of Elizabeth showing off her long neck?

Well, I’m crazy about this picture of Kirsten too… Maybe it’s the way it was centered with that moon showing just above her head…

I hope you enjoyed those shots of my girls in lace up front dresses…

See you Monday,
Blessings, Jeanne

I’ve been seeing LOTS of orange & black lately…

Everywhere I look there is orange and black… in the clothing stores, at Hobby Lobby, in Kroger, down town in the windows… everywhere EXCEPT my closet. I do have LOTS of black but I looked and I only have ONE tank top in orange… that’s it. I’m not an orange person! :o) Are you?

I have received a few favorite “orange and black” pictures and thought I’d share them… and then I’ll share “my” favorite orange and black photos.

Susette sent me this picture of a (ceramic, I think) pumpkin she made years ago and also she knitted (her ONE AND ONLY knitted item) the pumpkin head scarecrow. They make cute table decorations, don’t they?

If you click on the pictures, they will enlarge.

She also grows these long stemmed pumpkins… aren’t they the neatest looking things?

Molly is lookinq quite casual as she waits for some pizza!

I can’t remember if she told me this was Molly or Samantha… (I think it’s Samantha) dressed up as a witch. She doesn’t look very scary to me…

Thanks Susette!

Linda’s girls have been raiding the costume trunk, I think… look at the costumes they came up with… (I’m sure Linda had nothing to do with dressing them! Ha!)

Can you guess who is behind these beautiful green eyes?

How about this angel?

Here are a couple more…

Here is also a doll house Linda decorated…

Linda also sent me a picture of her hutch decorated for Fall…

I don’t have one orange thing out for a decoration… Oh wait, yes I do….

Okay, now it’s my turn to share my favorite orange and black doll dress… How many of you already know which one I’m referring to?

Yes, it’s this one… modeled by my 13″ Dianna Effner, Little Darling, Lian… I don’t think she EVER looked so sweet as she did for these pictures… (sorry for the picture overload, but I just LOVED them all!)

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

Some Saturday Side Shots…

My sister is still visiting and I needed a post that would keep you happy as I haven’t had any time for sewing the last few days. I looked at the list of the dolls I’ve owned and picked the ones that weren’t American Girl… and looked for pictures of them where they were glancing to the side. I have LOTS of pictures and I hope you see a few that are new to you. Some of these girls go WAY back with me. Hopefully they are all enjoying their new sisters, where ever they live now! :o)

Enjoy the slide show! You might have to come back several times to check them ALL out.. I think there are 57 pictures!

(If you click on any picture, it will enlarge)

See you Monday,
Blessings, Jeanne

First day of Fall ~ Fashionable with Flowers

I saw lots and lots of leaves falling today, so that can only mean one thing… Fall is coming… I mean Fall IS HERE… Today is the first day of Fall. (It actually starts at 4:02 p.m. Eastern time) I thought I’d celebrate it with you by showing flowers instead of leaves! I have some fun pictures of my girls holding flowers and hope you enjoy this slideshow! Pretty quickly the flowers will all disappear.

If you click on the pictures they will enlarge.

This is 14″ Wren, by Helen Kish…

This is 17″ Katie Effanbee…

Here is 18″ Nyssa, by Kaye Wiggs…

Everyone knows Felicity…

…and Kirsten….

…and who could forget Addy…

Rebecca is looking beautiful in her coral dress and her lavender one…

Kit shows off her black with some red roses and a pretty lilac junior bridesmaid dress…

This are my two 16″ Kish Four Seasons doll…Fall and Winter.

Here’s Elizabeth…

After seeing all those pretty flowers in the girls hands… WHO’S READY TO GO RAKE SOME LEAVES? :o)

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne
