Another Auction Reminder…

I hope you are all having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, so far. We missed the worst of the storms that went through yesterday afternoon and evening. The worst of the storms went south of us… I hope everyone is okay… we are, just very, very wet!

If you needed something to cheer up your weekend, how about this picture of Linda’s girls enjoying some ice cream… Aren’t they adorable? It looks like Molly is buying! Linda, I LOVE Ivy’s light aqua set… I want one just like it!

If you click on the picture it will enlarge.

If you want to spend some money, there’s always Addy’s dress that you can bid on… (that has to be the most shameless plug I’ve ever done…)

Still, if you want, here’s the link to the auction on Ebay, that ends this evening.

“Southern Charm”

My brother and his family will be here this evening, so I’ll try my best to see you in the morning!

Blessings, Jeanne

Cuteness Alert!!! Ten Ping and Noel look adorable!

If you need a fun start to your Saturday morning, you’ve come to the right place. Where else can you go and get a smile put on your face just by looking at doll dresses? Why, I Dream of Jeanne Marie’s…of course! Good news! My camera is working again. I took the battery out and then put it in again and viola…it worked! I captured the color of the dresses a little better with it instead of my phone.

Talk about using every spare scrap of this fat quarter; I managed to get 2 pairs of pantalettes made for my girls and only had to skimp a little bit on the waist area of Noel’s. I used a piece of stretch lace and made a sort of yoke for hers. It’s a bit higher than normal in the waist, but I didn’t want to trim it off and fray my fabric any lower than it already was. It doesn’t show anyway. Ten Ping’s worked out perfectly with the scrap I had for hers.

If you click on any picture it will enlarge.

The dresses now have a flower added with a few pearls sewn on and some leaves behind the flower. The belt goes around to the back and ties in a bow. It is stitched on so it won’t get lost.

Marilyn mentioned I should put something beside the dolls to remind everyone of just how small they are… I forgot, but will try to remember the next time I show pictures of them. Noel, is a Boneka/Effner doll and is 10″ tall; about like Patsy Tonner. Ten Ping, by Ruby Red Galleria, is a tiny little thing, standing only 8″ tall.

I only have a handful of scraps left and somehow, someway… I’m determined to make a hair bow for each girl. We’ll see if I can pull it off.

I love it when something this simple becomes a new favorite of mine…

That’s it for this Saturday… We are supposed to have lots of rain, but I hope the sun is shining where you are!

See you on Monday,
Blessings, Jeanne

I think Parades are always on Saturdays, aren’t they?

I’m sure parades are always on Saturday and my girls decided they wanted to have one in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. I told them I was busy because my sister was visiting and they told me they would take care of everything…I just needed to get the pictures together and they would get “in line” all by themselves. So here we go with the 2017 St. Patrick’s Day Parade, brought to you by the girls who live with me… I hope you enjoy them… and be sure and hoot and holler when your favorite goes by!!!

Are your dolls dressed in Green? Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

My sister is visiting this weekend, so once again Susette’s and Linda’s pictures had perfect timing! I hope you enjoy today’s post!

If you girls aren’t dressed in green, there still might be time to find them something. Even if you have a green sock, cut it off and make them a sock dress. Make a “troll dress”… you know where you take a rectangle and cut 2 holes for the arms and use a safety pin in the back.

Some of you have gone all out… Susette might get the prize, but I don’t know what everyone else did, so I can’t be sure. Here are 2 of her creations…

She wanted to make a slip after my slip tutorial, so here’s her fun polka dotted tulle slip…look at those cute green panties too!

Here’s a white one for Kit and shown on Molly too…

I had to laugh; she said she had to buy a whole pack of white feathers just to get the 2 or 3 three she needed for the hat!

She made a green coat to go over the white dress and look how pretty it is with her slip underneath!

Now look closely at the fabric with Kit modeling… Susette is in California…

…and Linda is in St. Louis…she found her dress for Betsy, ready made at a little shop in Missouri…

I guess it might be the most popular Shamrock green fabric of the year…

Okay…now it’s my turn.. I don’t have any green dresses, but Kathie sent a box of goodies and this green hat was in it… Janie said she wanted to show it to everyone so they could see her new red wig again…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne
