Little Suzannah and Emmaline

Suzannah and Emmaline, originally uploaded by JLP2000.

Suzannah has been here since December 6, 2010. While she was happy to see her 17" twin sisters arrive here, she missed the other little orphan sisters. A lot. So, when she heard that little Emmaline would be coming to live here soon, she waited. She tried to be patient, but when Emmaline finally arrived, Suzannah was the first to greet her. Don't they look happy to be together again? They are looking forward to when Meg can come. Maybe they can bake some Thanksgiving pies together!

Meet Josefina!

Josefina Up Close, originally uploaded by JLP2000.

Shame on me for not posting this photo on my blog sooner! My daughter didn't have school on 9/29, so I took a day off from work, and my husband, daughter and I drove to the American Girl store that opened in Tyson's Corner last summer. The store was a lot larger than the store I had visited in Atlanta. There were several dolls that I've been debating over, and Josefina was a the top of my list in August, when I orderd some of her outfits and accessories, but I put off getting her until I could pick her out in person. The newest historicals were a big temtation for me, as well as the gorgeous Rebecca and the temptation to get my first MyAG doll was there as well. There was something about the down to earth, simple yet beautiful Josefina and her world, that I knew she was the one to come home with me. I love her stories a great deal and somehow think that she was meant to be with me right now.

Felicity's Pinner Apron

Happy to Finally have the apron!, originally uploaded by JLP2000.

This apron was a long time in the making! I finished the embroidery during a very long wait in August, and didn't finish the apron until September. I found my tiniest silk pins today, so Felicity is ready to show off her new apron. She is wondering if I will get around to making a matching mob cap before it is time to put on her winter cllothes!
