Happy Easter from Paula Walton’s A Sweet Remembrance ❤
Eliza Jane and Hannah wish you a very happy St. Patrick’s Day! This morning, to celebrate, Hannah baked Irish Soda Bread for breakfast, which made all her sisters quite happy indeed ❤
Hannah’s favorite recipe comes from The Society for the Preservation of Irish Soda Bread. She prefers the recipe for White Soda Bread. She did stray from tradition and add raisins, which would actually make her bread “spotted dog”. Hannah is quite fond of both raisins and dogs… ❤
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…

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!!!
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.
SOLD 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.
SOLD 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.
SOLD 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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’m 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.
