The WINNER is…. plus a few Black and Orange fashions…

Hi everyone,
I hope you are all as excited as I am to get this post today! I DID get my 50 subscribers plus 3 extras, so THANK YOU so much! Okay, I know everyone is scanning this post to see if they quickly recognize some semblance of their name somewhere on the page. So without further delay, my hubby drew out the name and the winner in this 2nd Giveaway is Shirley Elkins! You can email me or just leave a comment (right below the title) and let me know which prize you would like… the doll gloves/necklace set, the 3 little mini animals, or the white Swiss lace. Congratulations for being a subscriber and thank you EVERYONE for making this so much fun for me. I promise you there will be lots more giveaways in the future. I wish I could give you all a prize!

Could I just give you a few statistics about my blog? I started on August 1st and had 503 hits in that first month. For the month of September, I just finished off with 1617 hits. What a huge increase! Thanks for telling your friends about it. I’ve had hits from all over the world…but the farthest away was from Perth, Australia…10,920 miles away. 2 days ago I got a hit from Italy…my first from there. It’s mind boggling to think I’m sitting here in Southern Illinois writing about my dolls and people all over the world are reading what I have to say. I am so honored and so thrilled and am having way too much fun sharing with you. I hope I can continue to be a bright spot in your day as you read.

Okay… now that it’s October, I thought we could bring out some orange and black fashions. I have to admit, orange and black together isn’t a combination I have too many pictures of, but I hope you enjoy what I found to share. Pretty soon we’ll be into the Christmas season and I have LOTS in green and red, so just hang on…














I know… Addy’s dress below isn’t “black” and orange, but brown and orange. I did sell it in October, so I hope that counts!


Sorry, that’s it. I told you I didn’t have much. I asked my hubby if he had any “material” for today’s post and he told me he had 2 jokes…
How do you fix a cracked pumpkin? (answers under my name below…)
What was Noah’s favorite fruit?

See you tomorrow,
Blessings, Jeanne

With a pumpkin patch!

    Wow! What an honor! I feel very fortunate to have won your give away! I’ll take the orange and black Little Darling dress!!! LOL! Don’t I wish! I would love to have any of your prizes but I think I will take your eyelet laces! I am really enjoying your blog.

    • Shirley,
      I am so glad you won and GREAT choice on the prize! You’ll love them. If you’ll just send me your address,
      I’ll get the laces out to you. Again, congrats to you on being the winner, and thanks for being a reader.
      I’m glad you are enjoying my blog.
      Blessings, Jeanne

  2. Jeanne, I am so glad that over the years you took so many photos and are now able to supply us with a daily dose of eye candy.

    • Me too, Jevne,
      There is no way I could have started a blog without the thousands of pictures… you’d all just be listening to me ramble instead of showing off doll clothes…
      Thanks, Jeanne

  3. Congrats Shirley! :o)

    Lovely outfits, Jeanne!

    • Thank you Carolyn,
      I think I need to make a new “orange and black” something for someone!
      Blessings, Jeanne

    Congratulations to Shirley!! Those are beautiful laces, and I am sure you will make good use of them!

    Jeanne, you mentioned above that this was the 2nd Giveway. When did you do the first?

    Your pictures are just adorable and I really enjoy seeing what you have up your sleeve each day. It must be quite a job to go through all those pictures, but I am sure glad you do!! I enjoy reading your blog with my first cup of coffee each day, and it wouldn’t be the same without it!

    • Awww Linda, how sweet to meet with me each morning! Maybe someday we can meet in person…
      My first giveaway was mentioned on the very first day I started my blog… then I had the drawing on August 11th… it was for a pair of my fingerless gloves for the American Girl dolls. I actually drew out 2 names and had 2 winners for that one…
      Thanks for meeting with me every day Linda! So glad you are enjoying it.
      Blessings, Jeanne
