Holly and Berries

Had a wonderful weekend with my 2-1/2 year old grandson, Dominic ~
Grammy and Pops bought him a
Batman tricycle for Christmas
(had to give it to him early of course!)
he sat on that bike, oops I mean "car" most of the weekend
just playing with all the sound buttons ~
still has to learn to push those peddles though
Holly and Berries ~
Annie's face shows some coffee stains ~
sorry, this was not my best job of staining ~
I like when you do not see any coffee stains just darkened muslin ~
I have no idea why I did not fix her but it is too late now ~
she holds a tin star I decorated with
holly, berries and some sweet annie

Annie is dressed in one of my all time favorite
Christmas fabrics ~
unfortunately this was the last in my stash
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
God bless
and thanks for visiting.

Prim Santa and Annie

Up on Ebay this coming Friday will be
Prim Santa and his Annie ~
Santa's hair and beard is lambs wool ~
he has little stitched eyes ~
and his hat was made from an old cutter quilt
with a rusty bell on the tip
Annie wears a homespun dress with a sprig of
sweet annie in her heart pocket ~
her hair was made from Burly spun wool

Everyone loves gingerbread men and gingerbread houses ~

Annie is giving gingerbread wishes and kisses to all!

Wishing all a wonderful week ahead.
Thanks for visiting
God bless!

Free Standing Christmas Annie

I finally finished my free standing Annie ~
her white felt jacket is removable with
hand stitched poinsettia and holly ~ the berries are tiny red beads ~
she was hanging naked on my factory wall for months
so I am thrilled she is finally dressed and ready for Ebay ~
and I am pretty sure I don't want to make another
but it is fun to try something different

Ahhh ~ back to my normal Annies
comes with a little tree with a tiny cardinal
and Deck the Halls sheet music
I am getting all excited about Christmas ~
what a great time of rejoicing the birth of Jesus
thanks for visiting ~ have a great week
God bless.

Merry Mouse

Occasionally I get the urge to create something different than Annies
so please meet Merry Mouse ~
she has little pointed feet with rhinestone buttons
~ a ruffled split dress with her loons peeking out ~
also a small basket of Sweet Annie
I really enjoyed creating her but my favorites are still my Annie dolls

Christmas Poinsettia Toile Annie ~
has a tiny bear in her stocking ~
her dress has a tuck and small ivory eyelet lace along the hem

This is a little 12 inch Annie sitting on two candy cane boxes ~
I don't make this size often but she seemed perfect for the boxes
Finally we are having beautiful fall weather ~
I love autumn with the changing leaves ~
Enjoy your week
Thanks for visiting
God bless.
