Crisp white dresses full of marvelous details aren’t just for summer.  They are equally charming in the winter, especially around the holidays!

This morning we woke to the sight of millions of tiny snow flakes filling the air, falling, falling all through the morning… Bring nature’s perfect Christmas decoration.

12/14/12 NOTE: SAVANNAH IS SOLD.

I have three new dolls that are available for sale, just in time for Christmas.  All of them are featured in the upcoming Winter 2013 issue of Prims magazine. As many of you know, I don’t usually name my dolls, but I did name these three.  You can read their story, along with a bit about how they were made and a some of my doll making tips in the magazine, which goes on sale January 1st.

Each of the dolls is fully dressed in clothing made from antique fabrics and lace.  If you’ve been dreaming of a doll with her own antique trunk full of dresses sitting under your tree on Christmas morning, that can be arranged 🙂  I have an antique doll trunk for sale, which  can be filled with gift certificates for custom made dresses.   Charlcie, Savannah, or Susie Belle accompanied by the antique trunk and dress certificates would  make  a very memorable and touching Christmas gift.  I am including a signed copy of Prims along with each doll.  There is also a chance that these dolls will be appearing in Early American Life magazine next year.  EAL was here on Saturday to shoot photos of our home for their 2013 Christmas issue.  At this point I have no idea which photos they will choose to use in the magazine article 🙂

To purchase Charlcie, Savannah(SOLD), or Susie Belle(SOLD) please visit my website asweetremembrance.com.  If you would like to add additional clothing, shoes or antique doll trunks to your order you may call me (860-355-5709) or email me (paula@asweetremembrance.com)  I would be happy to talk to you at any time about my dolls, answer any questions you may have, or send you additional photos.  As always, lay-away is an option on any purchase.

A Snowy Day filled with Winter Whites

Snowflakes are drifting down past the edges of the porch roof, where stacks of apple wood wait to feed the flames in my hearth.

It is snowing today, our first measurable snow this winter.  A surprising, heavy snow managed to sneak in during the midst of autumn this year, well before the winter solstice, but that doesn’t really count.

It feels only fitting and proper that I am surrounded by white, both indoors and out, as I work on creating an all white wardrobe for one of my Izannahs.  She is quite anxious to be off to her new home and is sitting patiently next to my sewing machine, urging me to hurry and finish so that she can begin her travels…
