Happy All Hallows Eve

Happy Halloween
Wishing you all a very Happy Halloween!

“The Only Ghost I Ever Saw” by Emily Dickinson

His conversation – seldom –

His laughter, like the Breeze –

That dies away in Dimples

 

Among the pensive trees –

Halloween
The bags are filled with treats and sweets, for when little spooks and spirits come tapping on the door…
Holidays

Happy Easter!

Sending Easter greetings your way ❤

Do you remember this photo from my Easter 2009 post? Nine years feel like they have flown by and the dolls and I are once again wishing you a very Happy Easter!

I’ve just finished posting directions for making dyed silhouette eggs, like the one Isabeau is holding in this photo, on another one of my blogs, Paula Walton’s 18th Century Home Journal. If you’d like to know how to make these sweet nostalgic eggs click on this link: https://paulawalton.wordpress.com/2018/04/01/happy-easter-crafting-silhouette-eggs/

Oh Dear! Oh Dear! I’m Late, I’m Late, I’m Late!; Or Why There Isn’t Going to be a Third Thursday Sale in January…

“The hurrier I go, the behinder I get.”

Good heavens! Only 13 days into the new year and already I’m behind!!! With the third Thursday of the month fast approaching on the 18th, I’ve made an executive decision to dispense with my normal “Third Thursday” release of new dolls and/or clothing in January. The glorious thing about being the CEO, and the entire workforce, of my own little domain is that all arguments for or against policy changes are strictly in my own head… so much quieter that way. 🙂

Actually I am incredibly blessed! I just finished writing another article for Antique Doll Collector magazine on New Year’s Day. At the moment I am currently working on the wardrobes for two dolls that are very anxious to begin their travels to their new homes, plus I have a stack of orders for paper cuttings, patterns, doll kits with custom painted heads, spun cotton ornaments, and more… ❤ What artisan wouldn’t be thrilled to have people buying their wares? ❤

So no “Third Thursday” this month… but who knows… perhaps there will be a special “Pop-Up” Valentine event… ❤
