A Happy Mother!!! & A Furlough for Me!!!

A Happy Mother's Day!!! & A Furlough for Me!!!

I want to wish all my friends a Happy Mothers Day!!! I hope you all enjoy your special day. Its hard work being a Mother. So you all deserve to have fun and rest, do whatever you want.I want to send out my prayers to some of my friends who have children who are ill or recovering from illness. May God bless these families. Now I'm going to tell you all that I'm taking a leave of absence just for a short time.You can't get rid of me that easy...LOL...If you noticed, I have not been visiting as much lately. Thats because I have been under the weather again. Nothing to bad, just something that happens to me now and again. But it does take me awhile to get over these spells I go though. I'm still doing my everyday stuff, just not as fast. However I am very excited because Sherry of, and her lovely daughter-inlaw Chris will be coming to visit me for a couple of days in two weeks. This will be a most wonderful time. Sherry and I will take lots of pictures to share with you. I still would love to hear from you and will be reading comments and such. I will also be happy to recieve email. I will answer any of these and comments. My email is
In the meantime I will leave you with some Mother's Day type dolls that I made awhile back and a Thank you .
I want to thank Pat of . Pat made me a beautiful pillow for a new old chair I bought at a Antiques mall. The pillow added just the right touch. If you could just see the pillow in person, pictures do not do her pillows justice. Thank you Pat for doing an outstanding job sweetie. When I'm not to poor again because of my new car, I would like another pillow with a Marie Antoinette on it...LOL...This picture also shows the extra goodie she sent me. A beautiful Easter egg , Its just to fab.
Now here are the few Doll vignettes I leave you with to celabrate Mothers Day.
I just had to show you this doll. I call it the ...Outhouse...You can't see it clear, but He has a sears catalog in his arms.Yes I made it myself...LOL...
I want to thank all of you again and I will be back soon, lots of hugs and kissesXXOO

  5. I'm sorry you are not feeling well. Get lots of rest and enjoy your company. I know you'll have loads of fun. I love your dolls. I had to smile when I saw the last one. When we visited my Grandma and Grandpa we had to use an outhouse and the sears catalog was there. I suppose I'm showing my age now aren't I? Have a good break and don't overdo. Lots of hugs,

  6. Honey get your strength back! I'll be thinking of you and hoping many thoughts for your strength and full recovery from your bad spell...

    I don't know why, but your dolls often bring a tear to my eyes -- not a sad tear, just a heartfelt one...these Mother's Day doll are just too precious, all of them, my eye is caught by the young African American woman and the baby they just choke me up, memories of Old New Orleans...

  7. Hi sweetie,

    I am so excited about you being able to spend some time with Sherry and her DIL. Rest, regain your strength so you can enjoy the visit. Your dolls are perfect! What a talent you have received from the Lord.

    P.S. I will say some extra prayers for you.

  8. Hi Sweetie, I so hope you feel better soon. Just take good care. I also hope you have a beauitful Mother's Day.
