Baby Hilda – German Doll

Baby Hilda in pink

Well it’s another beautiful day here in Texas….a little breezy……but that’s to be expected around this time of year……….I’ve been tearing off wallpaper all day in the Breakfast room…….what a job!……no more wall paper EVER!   It will take several days to get it all down so the walls can be textured and then painted……I will be posting the before and after pictures of my Breakfast room ……….but today I did find a few minutes to play around with my camera…..decided to take a picture of my German doll, Hilda…..She is one of my very first dolls I made many years ago…..She sits upstairs in her very own cherry wood high chair……but for the photo shoot…..I’m having to place her by a window…..so my pictures will come out bright enough……

She is so sweet…….

I hope you enjoyed my Hilda!   Now back to tearing down wallpaper…….

Have a blessed day!…..

Long face Jumeau springtime beauty

Good morning …….. and what an incredible gorgeous morning it is!     It’s a beautiful day today in Texas…….The sun is shining without a cloud in the sky……and speaking of sky,.. it’s a deep blue…………rarely do we get to see the sky so clear…..but after all the rain we had last week…..it seems to have cleaned the air……the pond is over flowing….again…. the grass has turned green overnight….and the birds……are  singing their songs…….

Oh how I love this time of year!!…….

Today I’m sharing my Springtime Beauty …..and she is a beauty indeed….She’s my  “Long Face Jumeau”….. a French Antique Reproduction Doll…..isn’t she breathtaking……

You are never too old for dolls……..

Hope you have a blessed day!!!  Take some time to step outside and enjoy the day that the Lord has made…….and it was made just for YOU!

The winter is past and gone……the season of singing has come!
