Every now and again I am asked to create something wonderful as a surprise gift for a special doll lover. I’ve just put the finishing touches on what is sure to be a very memorable 8th birthday present for a little girl who loves dolls just as much as her grandmother does ❤ Happy Birthday Holly!

My name is Paula Walton. I’m a working craftsperson. I’ve been self-employed since 1986, when I started selling the items that I make under the name A Sweet Remembrance. Among other things, I am a doll maker, a dressmaker that specializes in reproduction women’s and children’s clothing, maker of spun cotton ornaments and holiday figures, and a freelance designer. Upon occasion I write magazine articles and am a Craftsperson in Residence. I teach and do demonstrations quite frequently, plus I was previously the director and curator of a small museum in Connecticut.

Holly is going to LOVE her dress and her doll! I’m so glad to see it!
I hope she is! I would have been delirious with joy to receive a doll and dress like this on my 8th birthday ❤ ❤ ❤ Holly has amazing grandparents that put a great deal of thought and love into making this birthday one she will always remember.
Such a beautiul doll. And the dresses are wonderful.
Thank you Mary! Since this doll is meant to be played with the fabrics are new, but I think that this reproduction fabric has a very authentic look. 🙂
What an amazing gift – Holly is going to have such fun. Her grandparents couldn’t have picked a better friend/confidant than Hannah for their granddaughter – as I well know.
Thank you for sharing, Janet
I hope you and Hannah Grace are well ❤ Please tell Hannah Grace that her little sister says "Merry Christmas"! I hope your holidays are wonderful.
