Newest girl - Cecelia

I've had this girl for two weeks already and before yesterday I had only taken pictures of her feet!  This had to be remedied, so here she is:  

Dress by me

I love her hair!   Dress by Tonner

Blouse by Empire, jeans by me

She is, of course, Central Park Stroll Sydney.  She has been a grail of mine for a long time...  And now she's finally here!  :D

If you'd like to see the pics of her feet, check out my new casual shoes for summer.

For Mother's Day

I took some photos today of the dolls in my china cabinet, most - if not all - of which were gifts from either my mom or my grandma.  In fact, I'm pretty sure my mom is almost entirely responsible for my love of dolls!  

And I can't forget my darling Samantha, who remains my first doll love:  

Me holding Sam holding her china doll holding her Nutcracker doll:  

And finally, Samantha in the hand-smocked dress that my mom gave me for my birthday when I was probably ten or eleven, when it first occurred to me that I could sew clothes for dolls!  Prior to this revelation, I did not enjoy sewing.  :p  But I have loved it ever since:  

Thanks Mom!
