February 2nd! I am trying to post a Valentine picture from around my home everyday, or at least until Valentine's Day on the 14th. This is a sweet little miss given to me by LaVonne last year. I love these little figurines.
This is the doll I featured on my Tasha Tudor group today for Dolly Thursday. It is a half doll on a little covered box. LaVonne made one at a workshop last fall at our doll conference. I didn't take the class, so she was super sneaky and bought a kit when I wasn't with her. She made this sweet miss for me and gave it to me in my Christmas box! It is delightful. The class was given by a very sweet lady from Louisiana who runs a bed and breakfast. LaVonne and I would love to visit...maybe someday.
Last Saturday, I went to the doll show in Portland. I wasn't feeling too chipper, but wanted to go as I was in the hospital at the last show. I was a bit disappointed as there seemed to be too many Barbies and not enough older dolls. But, it was still fun and I was glad that I could attend.
This dress was made by the sweetest lady. It was made for a 20 inch doll from a vintage apron. How I wish it would have fit one of my china heads. It was quite fun to talk to her.
My eye always seems to pick out the Little Miss Revlon...probably because I love mine from my childhood.
A few china heads looking for a home!
This little miss seemed to be a bit crabby, but I liked all the goodies around her on the selling table.
I loved the little mirror and screen at this booth, plus the lovely dress!
This booth was always busy so I had a hard time getting up close to see the goods! Her dolls are really beautiful.
Doll furniture and dolly accessories are always displayed to tempt the shoppers!
A few more goodies.
I had to take this photo for LaVonne as she has a fondness for Native American dolls. One of these days, I hope she is here to go to the doll show with me. It is very fun to have a doll friend....partners in crime!
