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.

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.

Pamela’s Doll

A sweet little Izannah for Pamela, made from my mold of Anna.

I’ve just finished a very special reproduction Izannah Walker doll for Pamela. I was fortunate enough to get to  meet Pamela at the 2014 UFDC convention, where we had a great time chatting and planning all of the details for this doll.  She is  made from my mold of Anna, an adorable little antique Izannah Walker doll that belongs to my friend Mary.
