Wishing you all a very Happy May Day, from the studios at Paula Walton’s A Sweet Remembrance ❤
The dolls and I have been busily snipping paper to make a few special love tokens for Valentine’s Day! Most were inspired by hand drawn 19th century paper dolls. I’ve always found little pencil or ink drawn antique paper dolls to be quite endearing ❤ Tiny cut out drawings, made to amuse a child, treasured and saved… precious bits of ephemera.

A small Pop~Up Shop to celebrate the New Year! Tomorrow, January 1st, here on http://www.izannahwalker.com at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. I will be posting some of my newly completed reproduction Izannah Walker dolls and a handful of antique dolls too!
My Izannah family and I would like to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas! We’ve had a long, lovely Christmas celebration here in our snug old house. I hope your day has also been filled with Peace, Love, & Joy ❤
As a bedtime story tonight I am telling the little cloth girls the tale of how they all came to live here in this very old farmhouse in a small New England town…
… it all began Once Upon a Time, as all the very best stories do… Before I knew a single thing about this very old house, or this small little town…
The very first thing that happens in this story is a photograph, and in this photograph was a doll… What kind of doll you ask? That’s a very good question, and one I could not answer! So I searched and I searched, and I read about dolls… until at last I discovered the name of the woman who made the doll a long, long time ago. Can you guess who that was? I think you can… you no doubt know how the rest of the story goes too! So we’ll simply say that we wish you great happiness on this Christmas night ❤ ❤ ❤
Happy St. Nicholas Day to one and all! The dolls and I hope you found sweet treasures in your shoe this morning ❤
“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 –
Wishing you a magical Christmas, filled with peace, love and good will ❤
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.
