Thankful Sisters of the Dawn

Vielen Dank Juliane

Our new friends arrived safely on Christmas Day,
and have found places in our home and our hearts

Both 'Bella'

and MY Bella

love to join us for tea parties on hot days

and imaginary play

as well as visits to our friends and family.

They especially love joining us for dress-ups.

These precious little hands worked for many moments in order to fasten the studs on this precious wedding dress.

The veil was attached, the doll was declared "beautiful" and the two rolled, giggling and smiling, "sleeping" together, cuddling.

My Granny sewed many doll's clothes for my sister and I
which we have now passed down to our girls.
The wedding dress was made for me and my doll as a child.
It uses fabric and lace from my mother's wedding dress,
which I am certain my Granny would have made also.
It is very precious!
I am delighting seeing my girls have so much fun with it,
yet to understand the true value and feel the nostalgia of it all.

Thankyou Juliane.

We especially love the story you wrote for us:

Many thanks also for the lovely little mushroom ribbons I used to adorn my girl's mushroom pouches. Luzia Pimpinella's ribbons are indeed gorgeous, some of which can be found here in Australia at Ribbons Galore.

Those dollies are just beautiful! Love their little faces and especially their eyes. Your little one playing dress up is just so sweet and special. Thank you for sharing with us.

Cee, what pretty close-ups! What simply delightful little dolls! You had a wonderful grandma and I dare say you are carrying on her traditions.

Go read my blog when you have a moment. And thanks, again, for the wonderful list cover that I am enjoying so much!

I am a bloggy and real life friend of Homestay Mama. We have been friends for about 13 years. Had to come see you because she said to. I love the little note case she won and I know she will treasure it.
The dolls are the cutest I have seen. Took a peek at her blog also. I would love to order one, but DH frowns on this gramma still buying dollies.
We are trying to simplify our lives a bit also. Beginning with our foods. It seems hard to do living the pace we live at, but we are taking small little baby steps.
I will have to return to your blog for inspiration.
Glad to meet you, and hope you will find your way over to visit me too.
