This is one of my favorite weeks of the year! I’m reveling in an abundance of Izannah filled delights 🙂 Not only am I in the midst of playing with all my dolls, as we prepare to celebrate Izannah Walker’s 197th birthday on Thursday, but this past Saturday was the September meeting of my doll club. I love my doll club and all of the interesting and amazing women who are part of it. On Saturday I had the chance to return two antique Izannahs I have been restoring to their owner and also got a chance to see the newest Izannah that she has added to her collection! What a treat!!! I snapped a few photos to share with all of you other Izannahphiles. This little Izannah (she’s 16 inches) was so much cuter in person than she was in her official auction photographs, and of course much sweeter than she appears in my quick spur of the moment pix too! I also learned that one of the other members in my club is related to Izannah Walker. What a week so far!
