Lily & I took a break from those smelly boys last week.
A young girls right of passage, her first time to American Girl!!
To say she was overwhelmed would be an understatement.
made wish lists,
best of all we got a new hairdo for her doll 'CeCe'.
Look at the poor thing,
she had big 'issues'.
(this was the before)
No more Don King hair!
When we got home there was a package waiting at the door.
Return address, Karla's Cottage!!
Karla was so sweet to include the kids with some awesome summer reading &.........
Thanks a lot Karla!
(they loved them)
But lets get to the really good stuff.
And what a hat it is!
The most beautiful taupe & cream color. Busting with buds, pods, & velvet.
I just LOVE it!
But there was more!
This box was too pretty to open.
But I forced myself anyway.
Inside a beautiful soldered charm in the prettiest velvet lined box.
Vintage eyelet trim, a cameo, yummy buttons, & more flowers!
(so that I don't have to pilfer from the new one)
I LOVE the doorknob painted with one of Karla's signature roses.
Thank you my friend, you made 3 kids & their Mommy very happy!
Have you seen Mary's newest Green Paper challenge?
You've still got a couple of days play!
I'm hope to finish mine today.
Here's a little peak at something I'm working on for a swap I'm doing with my very good friend Diane Knotts. My project is inspired by the wonderful quilts Diane & her daughter Holly do.
Well, I'm off to see what you've been up to!
