This Sunday I'm joining Linda again at A LA CARTE for another GRATITUDE SUNDAY.
I went to a doll show in Portland on Saturday, put on by Dolls4ALL. They have them twice a year and I always look so forward to attending. I was thinking that I am thankful for the little girl in me that still loves dolls. Isn't it fun to enjoy things that brought you great JOY when you were little? I have always loved my dolls and still have many from my childhood. After I was introduced to Tasha Tudor's dolls though my friend Kristen and some of us in our Take Peace group made the doll Annabelle from Tasha's book A IS FOR ANNABELLE, I started going to the doll shows. I was so nervous the first time I went, but dolly people are fun and really sharing.
Enjoy some photos from the show~
I love French Fashion dolls and always drool over them and their clothes. This is a great book I found on making outfits and the dolly's accessories. I can spend hours pouring over these books!
I purchased some goodies for Annabelle's friends so I can't post pictures here yet. I did buy a special little lady for my self. She's a wax dollhouse doll, about 4 inches tall and she was made by the Seattle doll maker Ada Odenrider. Her dress is so pretty and very detailed. I love her hair style too.
I have read about wax dolls but I've never seen one other than in a book. I have to be selective anymore when purchasing a new doll. Her she is on tucked into my tea items. I have to find a good name for her.
Happy Sunday and spend a bit of time thinking about what you are thankful for this week.
I'll be announcing the winner of my GIVE AWAY on Monday!
