Halloween Party Part 3

•October 22, 2016 • Leave a Comment

I wasn’t really planning on splitting the Halloween Party into 3 posts, but WordPress is being a little bit cranky and overexcited tonight…  So here is the third installment of our party!!!

Halloween Dresses

These dresses will all fit most of my 18 inch reproduction Izannah Walker dolls.  If you are interested in buying any of the dresses, especially dress #3, you should measure the waist and top of the shoulder measurement of your doll.

Dress #1 – Sort straight sleeves, made from an antique black floral mourning print cotton.  Drawstring closures at the neckline and waist. $200.00 includes free priority mail shipping to any US address.


Dress #2 Is the same as dress #1, except it has short gathered and frilled sleeves.  $200.00 plus free priority mail shipping within the US.


Dress #3 is more fitted than the other 3 dresses.  Made of orange “cheddar” print antique fabric with black vining “branches” and red “berries”, trimmed with black velvet ribbon. This dress will close with three orange painted milk glass buttons and button holes.  I have not made the button holes or sewn on the buttons yet, so that I can slightly adjust the fit of the dress if necessary. $250.00 with free US priority shipping.



Dress #4 is probably my favorite!  It is a true “make-do” dress, pieced together from two different antique “cheddar” orange fabrics with a false hem of a third coordinating antique fabric.  One drawstring around the neckline and three drawstrings at the waistband, gives this dress an adjustable fit.  You will find this method used in late 18th and early 19th century infant and young children’s clothing.  It’s immensely practical!  $240.00 with free priority US shipping.


Treat Bags and Box

I have one set of four cotton mesh treat bags in a decorative Halloween box. $28.50 with free Priority Mail shipping within the US.

If you are interested in purchasing any of the dresses or the set of treat bags, email me at paula@asweetremembrance.com.  Paypal, or credit cards  and orders by Monday to ensure delivery before Halloween.  Checks and money orders if you don’t mind waiting for delivery…


Don’t be frightened, that isn’t a zombie graveyard full of body parts…  it is just “work in progress” dolls❤



The dolls have worked up quite an appetite showing you around my painting studio, crafting crepe paper costumes, sending Halloween greetings and modeling the latest in Halloween fashions!  Now it is time for refreshments. :)  Hot, buttery popcorn, sweet crunchy caramel corn, tart, crisp apples and hot spiced cider!!! Yum….

And now it’s time to say good night!  We are so happy you could come celebrate Halloween with us🙂


I hope you enjoyed the doll’s Halloween Party!!! I love Halloween and all of the seasonal delights of autumn. Can you tell? Gathered in antique wire egg baskets are some of the pumpkins from my garden and Osage Oranges from my Bodark trees.

** I sorry for the slow posting tonight and for breaking the party into 3 parts.  WordPress was being very difficult, so it was a bit challenging to get the Halloween party online.

Halloween Party – Part 2

•October 22, 2016 • Leave a Comment

Everyone is here!  It’s time to get the party started…

Making Costumes

Isabeau has decided that she should help all of the dolls and party guests make costumes.  She got out our collection of Dennison Boogie Books for ideas, along with the crepe paper, Dresden trims and lithographed scrapes…

That was fun! It’s time to put the craft supplies away.  We have so much more to do…

Halloween Greetings

The dolls all want to wish you a very Happy Halloween!

Ladies in White… are the ghostly visitors, tip-toeing among the tombstones? Or are they Count Dracula’s brides??? Eliza Jane, Memory and Ismay are having trouble deciding between themselves… but either way they want to wish you a haunting beautiful Halloween!

Zanna is usually the mildest most even tempered of dolls, but her devilish side is peeking out tonight as she sends warm Halloween Greetings your way!


Hanna wishes you all over flowing goodie bags and treats galore!


“BOO!” from Izzybelle to you!


Isabeau wishes you spooky, spine tickling chills and thrills this Halloween!

Haunted Halloween Fashions

I have a tiny stash of hoarded antique orange “cheddar” and black mourning fabrics just perfect for celebrating Halloween, but not so “costumey” that they can’t be worn year around.  I’ve fashioned some of my favorites into dresses to fit my 18 inch dolls.  I have four dresses available for sale, just in time for Halloween!

Annabelle & Annalee Are Homeward Bound

•October 19, 2016 • 2 Comments

The twins, Annabelle and Annalee, are headed to their new home.❤





I truly love these twins!  There is something so magical about doubles. I tried  my best to capture the twin’s beguiling personalities, but have to say they are much more engaging in person!  I made their matching dresses in one of my very favorite styles, from an amazing piece of pristine c. 1850 double pink print cotton.  At the beginning of the summer I was fortunate enough to run across a bag filled with the fabric stash of some long ago quilter… The bag contained a few pieced blocks, many applique cut outs and quite a bit of unused fabric.  It was an unbelievable find!
