What a beautiful summer day! I had the day off (and tomorrow too). We are always closed on Mondays, but I hired someone for this afternoon. It seems so good to just be able to be home and get caught up on a few things. More dolls are in the works. I decided to hang the stained doll parts and clothes outside instead of using the oven today. I'll bet my neighbors wondered what the heck was out there!!! We will have garden dolls, black dolls, Halloween dolls... I'm excited to get going on them! Be watching soon.
Does anything say summer much more than an old watering can? Seems like I can never get enough!

My Sweet Peas all started to bloom - and take over everything else. Oh well, it looks like an old country fence.
Papa and Abbey had to drain some of the water out of the pool and move it a little bit. Can't wait to see what our water bill is this month!!!
Papa finally got a chance to hold both of his girls. Check out our new little redhead! She is so adorable, just like her big sis!
Ashley and Tony got a chance to use their new travel system. They only live a couple blocks from us, so it's a nice walk. Lucy seems to be content wherever she is!
Dick and I are going for a little ride and then up to see Dad for awhile this evening. I like to take him a little bedtime snack once in awhile - he loves his sweets!
I hope all of you are having a great Sunday afternoon and the sun is shining wherever you are!
Until next time...


  1. I love the doll parts on the line:) and the watering can and grapevine too!

    Your family is just beautiful!

  2. Dawn,
    I love all of the family pictures. Love the old watering can, too. In the summer I always dry my prims outside (or in the microwave). In the winter I use my woodstove. So nice for you to take an afternoon off ~ you deserve it. Have a great week.

  3. So glad you had some time off and how kewl to see the clotheline filled with prim goodies! LOL

    What a wonderful pic of Papa and the girls! Love the red hair too! Jay is a redhead of course so we wondered if Liliana would be but her momma's dark hair won out!

    I love old watering cans as well - the more the merrier!

    hugs, Linda

  4. Hi Dawn :)

    It looks like everyone is having a wonderful summer. The doll parts on the line cracked me up LOL

    Thank you for your kind words about Shiloh.


  5. How funny all those doll parts on the line...I know what my neighbors would say...LOL

    Beautiful family pictures Dawn! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Love all the doll parts hanging on the line!! Wonder what the neighbors think! Can't wait to see them when they are all finished.
    Great photo of grandpa and his girls.
    Love your old watering can...I have one, but I keep it inside on display as I'm afraid it will disappear if I leave it outside.
    Have a great week.
    hugs, Cindy

  7. Dawn, Thanks for visiting my blog.
    I enjoyed visiting yours!
    What a beautiful family you have and I love all of your goodies!


  8. Looks like you are going to be busy! Your grandgirls are adorable! Good for you for taking some time off... or away from the store. One needs to do that once in a while for a little change of pace!
    Can't wait to see your finished dolls.

  9. I think that looks really nice , the dolls hanging on the clothesline. It has that downhome feeling. granddaughters are beautiful!

  10. clotheslines look like that when I'm drying doll parts, too.....I always wonder what my neighbors think...LOL. :0)
