3 years, 2 months and 27 days of waiting…

Some of you ladies who have “one” of these, will probably remember me mentioning it before…and some of you won’t have a clue. It’s been a really LONG wait and I’m not entirely sure I would do it again, but it’s over as of today…
A box came in the mail… a box like this…

Anyone recognize these boxes?

Almost ready to show you…

It’s my new Little Darling… I’ve been waiting SO long for her… and she’s finally here! Here’s what she looked like when I took the bubble wrap off…

Look at this sweet face…

Another shot…

She was hand painted by Lana Dobbs, one of the ladies trained by Dianna Effner, to make them look like they have glass eyes, but they are painted… Aren’t they incredible?

Here is a full shot of her in a few poses…

I wanted a dark brown wig for her and Lana chose this one…it’s layered and very pretty and soft…

She has a sweet pedi and mani…

I have big plans for her and have saved back of piece of fabric just waiting for her arrival… BUT Nora comes first!

I have been thinking her name would be Emmie the whole time I’ve been waiting, but I’ll have to see if it fits her when I “call her.” :o)

I did the “happy dolly dance” when I opened up that box lid! I have her in the box right now and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve opened the lid just to see if she’s still as beautiful as I thought she was the last time…

I have another surprise that came in the box, that I’ll probably share tomorrow… :o)

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

…and you thought I only made dresses?

I’ve been seeing lots of play sets for dolls on Ebay lately; many of them knitted or crocheted and they are adorable. I wondered how many “play sets” I have made? I just typed that line and now I’ll go check out my archives and see if we have anything to do a post about… yikes! I’m not sure exactly what I consider a “play set” but I hope you enjoy what I find…

Yippee! I found 15 pictures…and hope you enjoy them… there might be some you haven’t seen before…

This hot pink set is being modeled by Katie Effanbee. The set actually had a little skirt that tied around the waist and made a cute “dressy” romper.

My 16″ Red Haired Kish doll is wearing a pair of denim capris and a fun swing top.


An Mei is having fun with some kitties…


Isabelle adores her parakeet…

Kit was away at summer camp…

Lian is modeling “Lovely in Lavender!” Oh, and isn’t she???

Tiny 7 1/2″ Riley is ready for the pony rides…

Lanie looked so comfy in this purple romper.

… just as comfy as she does in this strawberry one!

Isabelle is showing you she isn’t afraid of dogs…

This is Millie… a skinny little ball jointed doll, by Kaye Wiggs. She was only with me about a year before I sold her.

Kit has been to the Farmer’s Market.

Riley is ready for the rodeo now!

This is a new (old) picture from 2007, that I received in the mail from Barbara. She’s been an admirer of mine since I began selling on Ebay. She copied my pictures and sent some new ones to me. I don’t have several of the ones she sent me, so it’s very fun for me to see these old pictures again. I had completely forgotten about this one. I’ll share the rest, but Molly’s play set was perfect for today’s post.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my “play” clothes! See I don’t just do dresses! :o)

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

A Little Eye Candy from Anne…

HI everyone,
We made it home from the 100 mile yard sale and had a nice safe trip! We didn’t make it the whole 100 miles… we never have… but we probably went 40 miles. It was a long day and I have my fitbit tracker letting me know I walked a lot of steps… 11,335 so far…that’s 4.75 miles, which doesn’t seem like too terribly many, but it was in the car, out of the car, in the car, out of the car, up a hill, through the gravel, to the next house, to the next garage. It was warm but we had a nice breeze most of the day, mixed with a few sprinkles…I am exhausted so I know my hubby is. He didn’t get out of the car as much as Rebecca and I did, but he was quite the trooper! We ended the day with a nice dinner at a great Mexican restaurant and I even have “lunch” for tomorrow! I am too tired to put together a post on the things I found, but I’ll do that soon… right now all I can think of is a shower and my bed…

We saw Joy’s new Dianna Effner, Little Darling, Libby a few days ago. If you missed seeing her, she’s worth checking out HERE.

I also knew Anne had received a Little Darling recently too, but couldn’t find the pictures she sent me. I asked her to resend them and thought I’d share little Miss Isabella Jayne with you today. You’ll be pleased to see Anne’s sweet cutie in some of the prettiest and sweetest dresses! Isabella Jayne was painted by Magalie and I don’t think Anne had to wait too terribly long for her. Anne named her middle name after her best friend, Jayne, whom she has been friends with since 2nd grade!!!

This is the outfit she arrived in when Anne opened her box. It was made by Magalie and isn’t it sweet on Isabella Jayne?

I think this next pink outfit must be a skirt with interchangeable tops…see what you think…

This is one adorable blue and pink smocked dress… so dainty looking! One picture with her teddy and one with her hat!

Two pictures here too, one with a hair bow and one with a hat!

Anne, I hope Isabella Jayne has enjoyed her 15 minutes of fame here today! What a true Little Darling she is! Thanks for letting me share her!

Don’t forget about Addy’s Civil War Dress, “Southern Charm,” listed on Ebay and ending Sunday evening. You can see it HERE.

See you Monday morning,
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…

Well, I know this is short, but my day was long, so I am retiring to bed!

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne
