Oh My Goodness!!!

I just didn't realize it has been almost a month since I posted.  Time has gotten away from me.  Hope all is well with you all and I will get around to see your posts.  Been busy with outdoor work and catching up on my reading.  My friend emailed me to see how I was doing and I must confess that I really did not know time has flown so fast.  Maybe I am getting a bit forgetful in my old age...

Not a lot has been happening except working in yard, trying to catch up on the weeding, and some new plants.  Mowing and trimming.  It is all a bit much for me as I get older so it takes me a lot longer to get it all done.

When I was visiting my niece she had bought a walking doll from ebay for her granddaughter which led to the discussion about dolls we had when we were young.  I told her I had a Ginny doll when I was little that I absolutely loved.  Guess what I received in the mail, yep, you guessed it....



This pic came out a little better.


She also sent me a pattern so I can duplicate the little dress my doll had.


The doll I had was dressed in the plaid dress with the ruffle blouse and I also had the cloak.  When it is a quieter time this winter I will make these for my Ginny doll.  This brought back wonderful memories of a time when I was young....

Till next time, lots of hugs to you all....

  1. How precious! You will have such fun making clothes and dressing her. Mildred and I were just talking about a friend making handmade doll clothes when we were children.

  4. What a great gift!! My fave doll when i was a kid was called Triki Miki. She's an 8" doll that could also share clothes with the Dawn dolls, but her joints were all articulated so she could do more stuff. She came wearing a groovy flowered orange jumpsuit.

  6. The gift of the doll is priceless!!!!!
    And ya, I understand completely....yard work is NEVER done. Once you get one chore completed, there is another...then, in no time, it's time to start anew.

  11. That was so sweet of her to send you the Ginny doll. It looks like it's in perfect condition, too! I've been watching Ebay for the Chatty Cathy ones 'cause I liked hers so much. We are just little kids at heart. haha Good way to be!
