Hello! Hello! Hello!
I want to thank all of you for all well wishes you sent my way. You really uplifted my spirits. May God Bless You All !!! Do we not have some of the best people here in blog land or what?
I'm ready to go!!!
The Dutchess of Tea. I am so honored to recieve it. Thank you so much Dear. You truely are a Lady.
I now want to show you an old baby doll that Julie Marie of Idyllhours sent me awhile back. She bought it at an estate sale. He knew I just inherited a bunch of old dolls. She thought I would appreciate this old doll she had found, and I did. It did not have any markings on it, but you could tell it was old. I cleaned it up and dressed her. Here are the before and after pictures.
Now on to some football !!!
How about them Saints? I know you are all tired of hearing...Who Dat say gonna beat them Saints?
Who dat! Who Dat! But I am from New Orleans and its about Damn time we won something.
As you know Mardi Gras was at the same time. Which I did not get to go. Boo Hoo, Sniff, Sniff.
Anywho, I found this T-shirt with Mardi Gras and the Super Bowl Champs(De Saints) so I bought it.Here it is.Please excuse my squint eyes in these pictures.For once we had a sunny day.
For my birthday last year, Sherry of Edie Marie's Attic...one of my most loveable and of course... we adopted each other...Sister, gave me a football jersey from her home state of Ohio.I told her when I could , I would take a picture of me in it.Again Squint eyes.
I use the image of one of the Gipson Girls...Afternoon Tea. I got these cards from Victoria Trading Company. Way back in 1998. I have been sponstoring my bowling team called the Tonidolls for years. I had t-shirts made for my team using this image. That was before Afternoon Tea got popular.
Here are just a few of the shirts.
I got started doing this by a lady I also bowl with. She is not on my team. This is a very giving woman. She not ony make dresses herself, she makes blankets, boy clothes, book bags toys and much more. All material and trims are donated. These clothes do not have any button holes or zippers. Only a little lace or rick rack. The dresses I recieve are already cut out. Some times this material is hideous at best. Like I said its donated and nothing is wasted. This is all done though the Mormon Church.
How I got into it ...I knew my friend made the dresses. She asked me if I would be interested in making just a few. I told her I did not know how to sew clothes for people. My doll clothes are just main circles, squares and draping. She said I'll show you. She came over and did just that. It wasn't to bad, just the sleeves and neck. Any way now my few turned into 191 dresses and counting. I truelly enjoy doing this , because I think of all the little girls faces when they recieve them. Did I not mention these dresses go all over the world, and to the Indian Reservations right here in the good old USA? Here are the ones I made this week.
This is for you dear friend...Here are a few dolls...I want you to tell me which one you like best, BECAUSE one of them is yours.You choose. It does not matter which. I want you to have one, and someday when your up to tatting the trim, I will make you the doll of your dreams. For now one of these will do. Its my way to show you how much You mean to me. I know how it feels not to be able to do the things we like due to a set back or illness. Love you Dear, XXOO
