Wow, Christmas really takes over one's time! Had good intentions to post more of our Christmas decor but it just didn't happen.
Jessica is our resident textile artist and she delighted her nieces, Gabrielle and Lily, with handmade dolls for Christmas. Here is Lily's doll, complete with blonde felt pigtails! The little gathered skirt and tiny pink cape are reversible for more "outfits." The fancy little button hides a velcro fastener to make it easier for little fingers. Dolly came complete with her own coordinating blanket and pillow.
I wish we'd gotten more photos before the girls gathered them up and went off to happily play with them. These are unique dolls that the girls will hold dear for years.
Jessica is a whiz at finding new ideas and creating treasures out of old vintage fabrics - all without patterns or instructions. We are looking forward to more treats that she will have on sale at our next open house in April. And don't miss her "green" coffee sleeves at Coffee Social, 113 W. Indiana and at Boo Radley's at 232 N. Howard here in Spokane (they were a featured Christmas gift idea in a recent issue of The Inlander).
And, speaking of talent, Jon can do anything with wood! Here is a darling little wooden elephant pull toy that went to little Miss Jillian this Christmas.
