My first Christmas dress of the season…

Well, sort of….it’s not entirely finished…actually, hardly started, but it’s going to be a sweet looking dress.

There were several things that kept me busy today, so sorry I never made it to your comments. It sounds like everyone is going to have a wonderful time whether they go anywhere or stay home. I love your traditions and the special things you all share with your families…thanks so much for sharing!

I guess you can see I got my computer fixed!!! I tried calling my satellite company and never could get through…so “who ya gonna call???” Kristoffer…that’s who!!! He helped me over the phone and I got back online!!! That son of ours is quite talented!!!

Would you like to see a few pictures of the first Christmas dress of the season? I asked who wanted the first Christmas dress and everyone shouted, “I do, I do,” but Lian just had a look on her face that won me over…it also helped that she looks so adorable in red!

I only have the dress cut out and the bodice and sleeves worked on. It’s pinned together but I hope you like it! I’ve had this snowflake fabric for a little while and think it’s so pretty. I was wondering who might end up with it… :o)

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

“Dolly Fever” is going around… I sure hope I don’t get it!

Do you have a fever? Dolly fever, that is? It seems some of you do, but really don’t care! In fact, you’re pretty excited that you do have it! If you’re new to doll talk, that’s what we say when someone gets to longing for a new doll. It’s pretty awful to have it, but sometimes it’s really wonderful when it ends well…most of the time with a sweet new doll to love! But there is NOTHING worse than having dolly fever and not being about to make it go away! Fortunately, for these few ladies, it did end well!

Charlotte T. received her new 13″ Dianna Effner, Little Darling, from Magalie. I’m not sure how long she had to wait on Magalie’s list for her doll to be painted, but I’m sure she’d tell you, “It was worth the wait.” Let me introduce you to Pearl! Isn’t she just adorable? I love her wig and that sweet little beauty mark on her cheek! This was a case of dolly fever that ended very well! Congratulations Charlotte! …and Well Done, Magalie!

Someone else is supposed to receive a new doll from Magalie too! Joy was thrilled to find out her doll, Margaret Estelle, named after her maternal grandmother, is supposed to arrive on Thursday. I bet both Joy and Charlotte won’t get much done except staring at their dolls today. Joy wanted her doll to look a little like her grandaughter, Landry, if possible… See what you think of these 2 beauties…

See how much fun Dolly Fever can be!!!

I have one more case of dolly fever to share with you. Marilyn got a bad case of Dolly Fever for Samantha… she found a real cutie on Etsy and is waiting for her to arrive! The funny thing was, Marilyn emailed me and told me she was “bad” and had bought another doll…a Samantha doll. She didn’t tell me the sellers name on Etsy…only that the seller had 3 Samantha dolls for sale and she got it for a good price.

Well, I had no idea how many Samantha dolls there were on Etsy, but I thought, somehow, someway, I’d figure out which doll was hers. I went to Etsy and there were over 900 listings, so I decided to put them in order of highest to lowest. I started at the top and sort of browsed through all the dolls, all the while asking myself, “now which one would Marilyn have bought?” I was glancing at all kinds of dolls and all of a sudden one jumped out at me! I opened it up and lo and behold, it had written below it…”Special Order, only for Marilyn!” I had found her doll on the very first one I opened up! She was so pretty and I copied a few pictures of her so you can see why Dolly Fever came over Marilyn so suddenly! :o)

Okay, so let me know if any more of you out there have gotten Dolly Fever. Normally, I’d say Fever, Fever go away, but when you have Dolly Fever it’s sometimes a wonderful thing! :o)

Hope you enjoyed this!
My hubby is having a biopsy on some spots found in his bladder today. We’d appreciate your prayers today!

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

A blast from the past…

I’m still gone and thought I’d share some “archived” posts that you may have missed… Back when I first started writing this blog, in August of 2014, my daily views were pretty low… for the first month, I averaged 16 hits a day! EEK! Let’s see if I can’t add a few more hits to some of these posts…

This post was written on my 4th day. It’s called:

Hats, Hats, and more Hats

This one might interest you.. I did it on day 72. It was called:

Why I take close up shots of my doll clothes…

CIMG0653

…and I’ll pick one more “oldie, but goodie!” It was called:

“Our First American Girl doll!”

Well, that’s it for today…
See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne
