Happy 199th Birthday Izannah Walker – Part 6 – Sweet Dreams

We’ve come to the end of our day.  My dolls and I hope you have enjoyed joining in our celebration of Izannah Walker’s birthday.  They’ve had a very active day with all of their friends.  Now all the dolls are getting sleepy and ready for bed…  Isabeau wasn’t quite sure where everyone was going to sleep tonight.  Since Cloe was such a big help this morning, she offered to rearrange the beds, so that there was a place for all of the dolls.

Even after Cloe moved all of the beds around, Isabeau still wasn’t sure that there was room for everyone…  “maybe we should have gone up to the attic to get Izzybelle’s little old bed” she fretted.


The Annas overheard her and offered to sleep in the kitchen on a pallet… I think I heard them whispering something about a midnight snack…


and now as the sun goes down it is time to kiss all the dolls good night, tell them to sleep tight and dream of tomorrow…


Even More Izannahs…

Just a sneak peek for Marti of her own little Anna.  I’ll post more photos of her in the next day or two and then she will be off to her new home…


Upcoming Events

If you live in the Kansas City area, or will be traveling there in the near future The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures will be having an exhibition of Daguerreotypes, Ambrotypes and Tintypes from the collection of Nick Vaccaro opening on October 8th, 2016 and  running through March 26th, 2017.  Two of the highlights will be a Daguerreotype of a baby holding an Izannah Walker doll and an Ambrotype of a young girl and an Izannah Walker doll.  The images will be displayed alongside the museum’s exquisite antique Izannah Walker doll “Miss Mary”.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays!  The dolls and I had such a good time preparing for Izannah’s birthday that we have decided to do a little something special for Halloween too.  Please visit us here on on October 22nd when the dolls will be trick or treating!

    1. Janet,

      You are quite welcome! I’m glad you could come by and visit the festivities. The baby and the dolls thoroughly enjoyed themselves! Grandma had a wonderful time too 🙂


  2. What fun you must have had with Cloe and and company during such a grand celebration. Enjoy the memories of such a wonderful day. Thanks for the invitation I had fun. 🙂

  3. I had a good time too. Loved Cloe in the pictures with the dolls. She’s so pretty in her dresses and love her hair with the ribbon in it. Thankyou Paula for all that you do for us, I really appreciate it.

    Love, Suzanne B. Charlcie and Anna

    1. You’re welcome Suzanne! I’m so glad you enjoyed the day! We all need a bit of whimsy and make-believe ❤ I was a bit surprised that Cloe left the ribbon alone 🙂 but she didn't seem to mind. Probably because she was too busy playing!
      I hope you, Charlcie and Anna have a great day. Your Izzybelle is anxious to get home to her sisters!
