Emmie wonders about her new dress…

First things first…
Just a quick note to remind you Nora’s dress, “Victorian Elegance” ends this evening on Ebay. You can see it by clicking the picture at the right side bar or you can click HERE and be taken to the auction…

This is the dress set…

Ever since Emmie came to live with me, I have wanted to take her wig off and see what she looked like in different colored wigs. Tonight I got that chance and thought I’d share with you a few of those looks. When I was talking to Lana about painting her, I wanted her to be versatile enough that she could wear a blonde wig sometimes or a red one, and not be totally stuck with only wearing dark wigs. I had her paint her eyelashes brown but not black to help with that. Here are a few looks…see if you have a preference.

This is the wig she came in…

This is a long carrot red “Ginger” wig by Monique… It’s a synthetic mohair and my favorite kind of wig…

This is a little platinum blonde wig I cut a while back…

This black wig is a Miranda wig and I’ve never used it before… I got it for Lian, but I always keep her in the bob…

She looks pretty cute in strawberry blonde too…this wig is called Sassy.

Elin or Ellowyne usually have this wig on, but I stretched and tugged and got it on Emmie. It’s a Kana Wild by Jpop wigs.

Recently I told you I had held back a piece of fabric that I wanted to make Emmie’s first dress from. This is it… a dimity and very dainty and lightweight. I already had the wool felt to make a hat…and it matches perfectly.

But I have been debating about this piece too… I picked up this blue piece of wool felt at St. Mary’s Antique Mall recently, and it goes wonderfully with this cream and blue print…

So, do you have a favorite wig and do you have a favorite fabric? Inquiring minds want to know… (Actually, just Jeanne wants to know!)

See you Monday,
Blessings, Jeanne

“Spring Fever” dresses for Ten Ping and Noel are up for sale…

I added a “surprise” post on Sunday and several of you saw it… well, I think a few more than several. I couldn’t wait until Monday’s post to share them, so I added a link to the listings on Ebay for both dresses. Ten Ping, my little 8″ Ruby Red Galleria cutie is just that… as cute as can be in this sweet little pink dress. It might be simple, but it sure makes me smile when I see her in it! Here are a couple of my favorite photo’s from our session…

Noel’s dress looks equally as darling on her and she is standing on my cutting table wearing this dress like she’s going to be allowed to keep it… sorry, Noel, that’s not the way things work around here…but I promise you, there will be more to model…Here are a few shots from her Ebay photo shoot…

I let the girls pick their favorite “group” shot, and this is the one they picked…

Marilyn mentioned something about everyone not knowing just how tiny these girls were…and thought maybe if I showed them next to something familiar, it might give a better idea of their size. I decided most everyone knows of the American Girls and how big they are, so I placed Noel and Ten Ping next to Eden… and they do look extra tiny beside her.

I mentioned I had such tiny scraps, I wasn’t sure I could even get hair bows made for the girls…but miracle of miracles, my scraps were just enough…barely enough! I rounded up every single scrap I could find on my cutting table and ones I had tossed aside and this is what was left from that fat quarter I started with. Not much, is it?

I used a piece of tulle (netting) for the back side of both bows…Here is Ten Ping’s tiny bow… it’s the tiniest bow I know I’ve ever made… there was no way to attach a snap clip to it, so I added a tiny white ball head pin and the winner can just stick it through the hair bow and into their dolls hair.

If you’d like to see the listings, you can click on the pictures at the right side bar or you can click on these links…

~ Winter Garden ~ American Girl, Felicity’s newest Dress set revealed & MORE…

It took me a little over a week to create this wonderful outfit for Felicity, but I hope you didn’t mind the wait. It was very fun for me to make and Felicity loved the extra time on my cutting table, just standing there in her dress, with my other girls on the dolly shelf, looking on each day as something new was added. This set ended up having 10 pieces… the bodice, skirt, bum roll, fichu, necklace, bonnet, cape, reticule, wide lace pinner cap and a narrow lace pinner cap. I think the winner will have lots of fun with this new set. Marilyn thought of the name this time… thanks again!

If you’d like to see the listing on Ebay, you can click the picture at the right side bar or you can click HERE.

Here are a few pictures…

I have been a little behind on showing some pictures I received from some of my readers. I wanted to get caught up somewhat if I could.

Mary C sent me this picture of a quilt she made. She made it in red, white and blues and on the back she has the names of her family members who served in the military. For Christmas she did a really wonderful thing. She put her family members names in a hat and drew out one lucky winner. They got the Quilt! How fun would that have been. Mary, if you’re reading this, please add anything else in the comments, if you would. Let us know who won and how they reacted to such a wonderful gift! Isn’t it just beautiful?

Anne, one of my readers, also sent me the following link…

Changes for the Tonner company

It seems that Robert Tonner is shaking things up at his company and Ellowyne will be phased out this year…as well, as the 10″ Patsy Tonner and friends dolls. This is a HUGE shock and disappointment to most Tonner fans. Robert has some new ideas for the coming year and we’ll all have to wait and see what that means…

I had so many pictures that came in right at Christmas and New Years, that I couldn’t keep up with them…HOWEVER… ALL dolls deserve to be showcased… Here are Susette’s 4 girls in their New Year’s Eve dresses. She said she had “fun” crawling around on the floor getting them set up for pictures! Way to go Susette!

Susette also sent me some pictures of Riya, her granddaughter and her love of American Girl dolls.

When she was 5, she received her first American Girl doll, Isabelle.

Here she is at age 6 when she received Grace!

At age six, here she is with Isabelle and Grace during Christmas. Aren’t they all just adorable?

…and this year, at age 7, Riya picked up a few more dolly friends…a Leah doll, an Effner Maru doll and just look at all her fun accessories… looks like Graces’ bakery items…

I don’t think there is any way Riya is going to ever stop loving dolls…she’s following in her grandma Susette’s footsteps! :o)

Well, I have more pictures to list, but I’ll spread them out over a few days, if you don’t mind…

Don’t forget to check out Felicity’s dress set!

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne
