and the winner is…


my little elfin girl Honora Eilish would love Sally as a “forever” friend.

i think the birdy kimono and the acqua eyes are the sweetest. i found you too late for a Christmas order but perhaps we’ll be lucky here!

thanks for the chance.

Congratulations Colleen!

I’m planning on having frequent Doll Giveaways – maybe one a month or so. I LOVE doing these! John always says that if we were to win the lottery I’d probably make dolls and just give them away, and I would.  I’ll announce my giveaways on my newsletter so if you haven’t signed up already please do so to ‘stay in the loop’ so to speak.  I’d like to thank each and everyone of you for your amazing comments and a few fantastic poems – (thanks again Casey!). I’m feelin’ the love!


Band with their ‘groupies’

Speaking of love – we had the absolute best time ever at the ‘Cobble Hill Hoe Down’. Really, a honest to goodness hoe down! I had a grin from ear to ear as I square danced the night away! We went with a great group of pals and being in such a small town , we recognized at least half the people there. I’m not a country music gal but this was such great fiddle and banjo music – the band was amazing and so hip and cool. It was fun to be able to go with the kids – a family date night. Anyhow, I thought I’d share a few pics from the night…



Any place with a ‘Cookies by Donation’ Jar is good by me!

I will have a bunch of dolls up for sale on Etsy in the next week or so – stay tuned!

    Hello! Congrats to the winner. I find myself checking in with your site often…it is really neat to learn about your business and your family. I cannot wait until my little girl is old enough for her very own dolly. I loved my dolls so much growing up and can’t wait to share with her. She is 13 months now. I ordered her one of your toddler dolls for Christmas. Mary is a sweet girl who loves to give hugs. I can’t wait to see her hugging her baby! Thanks for your wonderful work! We live in Ottawa and would love to see your dolls here…
