Such a Busy Weekend!

Saturday is Cleaning Day❣️
Tilly Lamb & Sarah Alice are up early. They have a lot to do today. They are cleaning the doll house from top to bottom!
Making the beds, dusting and straightening the toys in the bedroom. Then moving to the parlor to dust and shovel the ashes out of the stove. In the kitchen a huge stack of dishes is waiting to be neatly put away…
Monday – Washing.
Tuesday – Ironing.
Wednesday – Mending.
Thursday – Marketing.
Friday – Baking.
Saturday – Cleaning.
Sunday – Day of Rest.

Busy, busy days… While I spent the weekend making dolls to unveil next Saturday night, September 26th at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time, the dolls cleaned their doll house from top to bottom. Goodness! Parties are so much work!!!

Isabeau takes a tea break …

All the little Izzys were exhausted, so today they took the day off to rest, while I continued to paint and sew. I hope they will be ready to get back to work tomorrow! We still have so many party preparations to make before we can celebrate Izannah Walker’s 203rd birthday on Friday, September 25th, 2020 beginning at 8:00 a.m. Eastern time. We hope you will be able to come to the party ❤

Valentine’s Day at A Sweet Remembrance



The dolls and I have had a very busy day     We spent a little extra time this morning baking a special Valentine treat, Chocolate Bread, an amazing combination of dark chocolate, tart cherries and coffee.  While the dough was rising, and filling the house with an enticing scent, we went out to the studio where Josephine, Isabeau and Ismay kept themselves busy making valentines. ❤ ❤ ❤ click on any photo to enlarge ❤ ❤ ❤

Ismay and Isabeau cut out Valentines, weaving paper hearts into tiny paper hands, while Josephine addressed envelopes to all of their dearest friends…

Making Valentines was such fun, and kept the dolls so busy that I was able to work on many other things.

Cutting out dresses for the twins, Annabelle and Annalee ❤

Photographing new dolls… four different versions for a custom order 🙂

We hope your Valentine’s Day has been just as wonderful and eventful as ours

If you would like to bake a batch of Chocolate Bread too, here is where you can find my recipe.

To see a bit more of our Valentine’s Day visit Paula Walton’s 18th Century Home Journal and my Spun Cotton Ornament Journal.

A Letter from Hannah Grace

Hannah grace has written us a letter to say that she loves her new home and is making friends with all of the bears who live there too, especially Mr. Ginger. ❤

All of the girl’s were thrilled to receive a letter from Hannah Grace!  . She said that keeping busy helps when she is lonely for her friends and family in CT, so she has begun working on a few projects.

Hannah is trimming photos of her loved ones to fit in her locket. She is planning to go shopping for ribbon this weekend so she can wear the locket and keep the pictures close to her heart.  Hannah wants to share her quilt top with Mr. Ginger and plans to finish quilting it later this winter.She also has a small embroidery project she wants to work on and is in the process of choosing colors.

What a busy young lady!!!  Now all of the doll’s are clamoring about starting winter projects of their own…

Hannah Grace, Mr. Ginger and their quilt top.
