The dolls and I are doing something new this week… we are attending a virtual doll convention. So far the convention is in pre-convention mode, which is actually a lot of fun, as attendees are currently introducing themselves and showing photos of their collections. The convention begins in earnest on Thursday, so if you need an added helping of dolls to begin your year, you may want to go take a peek at the convention site. I think there is still time to sign-up https://www.virtualdollconvention.com/ The convention is being held entirely on facebook, so you would need a facebook account to attend.
“I is for Izannah”
“I is for (imaginary) Ice Cream”
I’ll be posting all day long on Monday, September 25th, as my dolls and I enjoy the party that the dolls have been working on ❤ The first of the new dolls that I am making especially to celebrate Izannah’s legacy will be making their debut appearance at 12:00 noon, eastern time on 9/25/17, with more to follow… The first party post will be at 1:00 a.m. Monday morning!
Another date to mark on your calendars!!! As many of you may know, I am co-chairman for the Jenny Lind Doll Club doll show. This year is the 30th year for the show, so we wanted to do something special at this year’s show. Being fellow Izannahphiles I know you won’t be surprised by what I came up with. 🙂
The Jenny Lind Doll Club is very pleased to announce that we will have a special educational exhibit of Izannah Walker dolls at our October 29th, 2017 show. This is an almost unprecedented gathering of so many of these rare dolls at a public event. There will be at least eleven Izannah Walker dolls on display that belong to current Jenny Lind members, along with photos and memorabilia of Izannah Walker dolls owned by past members, including legendary Izannah Walker collector Maureen Popp. At this time discussions are underway with friends of the Jenny Lind doll club about the possibility of additional dolls being loaned for the exhibit, so the total number of dolls on display may be slightly higher. There is no separate admission fee to view the educational exhibit. Entrance is included in the doll show admission of $7.00.
All exhibited Izannah Walker dolls are part of private collections, they are NOT being offered for sale. This is strictly an exhibit in celebration of both our Doll Show’s 30th anniversary and Izannah Walker’s 200th birthday.
*If you will be attending the show and own an Izannah Walker doll that you would like to add to the exhibit, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements. ❤

All is calm, all is bright… We hope you had a joyful Christmas celebration! Best holiday wishes from our home to yours ❤
The dolls all hung their stockings from the mantle on Christmas Eve and Eliza Jane was thrilled to find that Santa left new boots in hers!
All the little wooden dolls have decided they need to make clothes for the new year, so they are making themselves at home amongst my sewing accoutrements…

Once again the earth has turned and November has come at last, drifting in on gently falling leaves and soft, warm rays of light… More than any other month, November causes my soul to ring with echos of the past, and my thoughts meander to the people who have lived in my house and owned the things I love before me. I dwell and marvel at small girls, turned to woman, with babes of their own, who played with the dolls I cherish. I glory in the vibrant creativity of quilts, pieced by other hands and passed down through the years, to warm loved ones… Days and hours slip away and gently flow into the past, where I allow myself to linger for a few brief hours, lost in a daydream of past childhoods. ❤

At 7:00 p.m. I have a few new dolls who would like to make your acquaintance. I hope you will be able to come back to meet them and then return one final time today at 10:00 p.m. Eastern time for our bedtime post. 🙂
