OH HAPPY DAY! Dick and I are both off work today and he is building shelves in the "store" room so I can set up my craft room and finally get organized after our move. I've been trying to work out of boxes and it gets so confusing! We started feeding the birds again for my mom and it is so much fun to watch. The ducks have discovered the bird feeder again and the love it. If you enlarge the picture, you can see the guy up on top pushing food off for his buddies. This morning they all flew in and one of the females did a crash landing on her chest and then rolled. I've never seen anything like it! We are getting squirrels, all kinds of birds and all the ducks and my mom is enjoying watching them from her dining room and kitchen.

Time to share some of the new dollies. This one is Hope's Heart. She is holding a heart from a coverlet scrap and has bells for her hair and eyes.

Our black cat has an old grubby cheesecloth collar, an old leather bag with Sweet Annie and a mouse peeking out.
Tick Tock Tillie has a dress made from an old embroidered pillow case and is wearing an old watch around her neck. She also has real wool for her hair.
Cora is holding a crow and Sweet Annie and also has wool for her hair.
Here is a lighter picture of our PRIM angel. Just love her!
Also a lighter picture of our "light up" house.
My Tuesdays have turned into sewing days with my friend Debbie. Time to get moving on bunnies, carrots, eggs and more dolls! SOOOOO, guess what we'll be doing tomorrow?
Our Michigan weather has been crazy. It was up in the 40's this weekend and now the temps are dropping and we may have snow again this afternoon. Hope our skating rink freezes again before it gets all lumpy with the new snow!
Enjoy your Monday gals and we'll talk again soon.
Until next time...


  1. Hi Dawn!....a newly organized craft room sounds like a wonderful thing indeed! The new goodies are prim perfect! Thank you for sharing the pics!


  2. Good afternoon Dawn...your little dolls are adorable.
    Oh won't you be so happy to have your craft room back...don't know how I could function without mine.

    Hugs, Karen

  3. I know what you mean about working out of boxes. I worked out of storage bins forever. Hubbs for Christmas made me a crafting area {pics on my blog}. It's so nice to be organized and NOT have to put everything back in tubs. Love your new creations. Oh is that your boxer in your header ? We have a boxer and can't imagine life without having her.

  4. That's so funny about the ducks! I am sure they provide quite the entertainment! Love all your new dolls :0)

  5. Dawn,
    I love all the dolls...they are adorable!! We get all kinds of animals eating out of the feeders here, but I've never had any ducks. Love how that one is sending the food to the ground for the others.
    Hope you are having a great week.
