Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night…

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…

IMG_7727 (2)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 ❤ ❤ ❤

Wishing you all the best from our home to yours for Christmas 2012!

This large papier-mache boy was a present from my husband several Christmases ago.  He is wearing a "new" dress for Christmas that I just bought for him from Edyth O'Neill. It arrived today and I couldn't wait to try it on him.
