Patsy Has Some New Booties!!

Image
Hi Dear Friends,

Hoping you are enjoying this
glorious day!!

My Mom who lives with me and hubby
has a Patsy doll. My Mom will be 92 in
February and when she was a little girl
in the 1920's a doll came out called Patsy!
My mother wanted a Patsy doll so much
but never was given one. I remember through
the years my mom would tell me her sad story
how much she had wanted Patsy and that her
friend Norma across the street had one with
lots of clothes. Ahh well years later ummmm like
80 plus years later....I looked up Patsy Dolls and
found a lady who sold them. This little Patsy is a
newer Patsy doll of course but is an authentic
Patsy never the less.  I bought Patsy for my Mom
about 4 years ago. Mom was sooo surprised and
happy to finally have her!!
The little blue coat I made for Patsy about three
years ago with wool felt. I think it came out so cute
for her. My friend Lynn Cliburn from

Lynnslovlies.blogspot.com makes beautiful
crochet items which I have bought quite a few
items from…

Lil Me With Santa!!

Hi Sweet  Friends,

Do you have one of these pictures
of yourself with Santa when you were
young?? What memories can you conjure
up with your photos from the past....?

 This picture was taken of me when
I was living in Miami Fla. I think
I was around 6 years old here..
many moons ago! :)

My mother had a very vivid imagination
and would tell me all about Santa and his
elves. I truly believed in Jolly old
St. Nicholas back then. I always had a
few things I wanted to tell him like I had
been a good girl all year and that I wanted a certain
doll or toy or game. I remember one year
I received a toy dishes set with small size
silver ware to match. I had a small square
table in my bedroom and I would arrange
all my little chairs around it with all my dolls
sitting there waiting to be served.
Our last Christmas in Florida I received
The Three Bears....they came in a cute
card board house...Papa bear was about
three feet high and Mama bear a bit smaller
an baby bear was so cute. I loved tho…

Christmas Time and Miss Daisy

Hi Dear Friends,

I don't know about you but this
Christmas my energy level is so low.
I have been trying to get things
accomplished but I seem to go in
slow motion.

Miss Daisy my little Persian kitty
looks like she is a bit lost....so many things
twinkling, and blinking!! She is such a sweetie
and loves to sit under the Christmas tree..I think
she thinks it's her newest toy!!!! :)




I am working on some cute little
Yoyo pins with my ribbon roses
and a touch of lace. There is a
little crystal in the center of the rose.
When completed will be mailed out
to a dear family member.  
                                                         Peaceful Christmas Wishes

Twelve Days Of Christmas......

Image
Hello Dear Friends,


What a wonderful time of year....

There are projects to finish up, gifts
to wrap, cards to write and cookies
to make.
My hubby and I trimmed our tree last
night and today I am putting the finishing
touches of Christmas around the house.
This morning I trimmed the little tree for
our kitchen. My Mom sits there to have her
breakfast and lunch and it is nice to have her
enjoy the little tree and figurines that she loves
to look at.

I created a couple of tins with the help of
Nancy Maxwell James tutorials that she is
doing for us. I had so much fun making these
adorable tins!! They are so easy to make and
to give to some special people in your life as well.

This is our cute little kitchen Christmas tree...:)



Wishing you All Joy and Blessings,

Love to All,
