One precious little boy ~


Our sweet grandson Murray turned TWO Sept. 19th
and I just have to share a few birthday party photos
from this past weekend!!!

I had to use a flash as the room was dark but
you'll certainly see how very happy he was!


Here he is with his mama waiting to open gifts...


Murray loves cars, trains, trucks...all of them!!!





Clara had as much fun as he did!!!




Mama Emily is showing Murray how to operate the Thomas train ~




Murray loves trains so much...the Thomas cake was just perfect for his party!




I believe he's thinking to himself here..."man, I need a nap!!!"



Happy Birthday sweet grandbaby Murray!!! We love you so, so much ~



Plus, I found the most wonderful box to package my little art doll in!!!
She's heading to Texas tomorrow....




Happy Monday precious friends!!!

hugs and love,
Dawn

A sweet little labor of love ~


I can't believe it!!!
I finally finished my little art doll!!
I'm over the moon in love with how she turned out too...

Her dress came out just the way I had envisioned it ~
full of gathers and embellished with lace.
I loved using the large vintage doll dress to create it too...
The vintage lace was already applied and I simply made it work for her size.




I even made her a little crinoline slip...






She has a sweet headband that I made from the dress fabric as well.




I just love her!!!

She's listed HERE in my Etsy store!!


Wishing you a very happy and creative Thursday precious friends ~
hugs and love,
Dawn

Digging through my stash ~


I absolutely LOVE, love old doll clothes.
No, not those made overseas but those made by
mamas and grandmamas to please their little girls!!!

I have a teeny collection and thought I would go to it for inspiration
for a dress for my sweet art doll.

Guess what I found???
The tiniest pair of panties EVER!!! And they actually FIT
over the chubby belly that I gave my sweet girl dolly.

Then I went through all the doll dresses.
I wanted to find the perfect one that I could transform for her.
I found the most WONDERFUL antique pink one!!!
Now I have to try to make a dress for my small doll from this big dress...
but I think the color will be just beautiful on her!






Can you see it in your mind's eye? :)



Emily had a parent/teacher conference with Clara's kindergarten teacher and
brought our precious grandbabies by so she could go.
Murray and Clara BOTH flocked to Uncle Noah...and Murray just crashed!!!
Clara saw this and decided to lay down too!!
Uncle Noah?
He thinks he has the magic touch!!!!



Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday my sweet, sweet friends!!!
hugs and love,
Dawn
