LOVE! LOVE! Just love seeing this collage of what goes on and how this new body style of doll is put together.
Very exciting and super excited to see pictures of the cuties when they make their way into homes all over the world.
So wonderful how the process is shared and makes you feel like you are a part of it even though I am just getting to watch.

A Sweet Spring Morning

One of the first things I do in the morning is grab a basket, and put on my gum boots. Then out to visit my chickens. I have a sweet little flock of 5 hens and a silly rooster. They always come flying out of their house, so excited for another day of forging. I […]

I love the chicken house…I love the mural…and the boots…and the nature noisy yet quiet peaceful mornings of country living. I love this time also…after my cup of coffee though.
