A New Outfit for My China Head...Dolly Thursday


It's Dolly Thursday with my Tasha Tudor group and I am still enjoying all the Christmas decorations and even music. It's not over for me! I love Christmas and it's fun to enjoy it all for awhile longer.
Isn't this just the sweetest graphics?


For my birthday, Jimmy gave me some money to spend on Etsy. He knows I love to shop there and told me if I didn't spend it, I had to return it. My pretty China head doll has been wearing an outfit that is too large for her for way too long. I found this lovely velvet green dress for her and it fits perfectly.


She was my very first China head and I do love her. She started me on my doll collecting. She always sits in this little chair in the tea room. I love the color and the fit. She is most happy now.


Doesn't she just have the sweetest face?
Now I have to find an outfit for a smaller little China head who need to be dressed better too. I will have fun shopping tonight.

The death of Carrie Fisher and now her mom Debbie Reynolds has been so sad this week. Jim took me to see Rogue One, the newest Star Wars movie this afternoon. I really enjoyed it...lots of action and suspense.

What a precious little dolly, Linda! The dress is darling, too. I am so sad about Carrie and Debbie. I grew up watching Debbie Reynolds movies and part of the movie 'Postcards From the Edge' was filmed here in my little town. Sweet vintage graphic, too. I hope your Christmas was lovely and wishing you sweet blessings in the coming New Year! Hugs xo Karen

I hope you and yours had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and are looking forward to a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.
