A Doll A Week 34/52: Lanie

Lanie was in our blog earlier this year when she arrived, but got to be the "doll of the week" in our Flickr photostream.    She arrived on May 7th of this year.  She loves nature, gardens and wildlife, and is very happy that we still have many warm, sunny days ahead of us before it turns chilly.  Her biggest fear now is what will happen to her favorite plants and animals if a hurricane should hit our part of the East Coast.

Ruthie is a happy girl this evening!  August 22nd (1923) is her birthday, and she has a new dress!

Jen made it from some more great fabric from "And Sew it Goes" at Savage Mills and a pattern she downloaded from Liberty Jane called Heritage Vintage 30's Dress by designer Micah Caitlin.

Happy Birthday, Ruthie!

A Doll a Week 33/52: Lucy

This is Lucy.  She is a Sylvia Natterer doll made by White Balloon called "Lea."  But she told us her name is really Lucy.  She arrived on April 17, 2006, a few weeks after her sister, April.  Lucy likes to play jacks, hopscotch and jump rope games.  She has her own raincoat, so she also likes to play in the puddles after a rain shower if it is warm enough!

A Doll A Week 31/52: Hitty Joanna Corbett

This is Hitty Joanna Corbett.  She arrived here on April 1, 2005.  She was an eBay auction win on Easter morning, and Joanna was one of the women who went to Jesus' tomb but didn't find him there.  She is harder to photograph because she has a very high sheen finish.  I love her for her simplicity.  She loves to spend time with other the other Hittys and would love to go on more adventures.  She doesn't have much stamina though, and has to sit down to rest too often for the younger Hittys!  She is a good judge of character and always looks at the heart and a person's character in choosing her friends.

Maybe it is because she has a big heart.
