Autumn Joy

Mums and Joy

Joy searched through the doll clothes to see if she could find something to wear.  She found a romper that I'd made for Susie (my Petite Ai Rapheal elf), and it fit really well - the only thing that wasn't perfect was that the sleeves are just a tad too short!  Then she found some red shoes in the bleuette box that were a nice muted red that matched her top.  She was all set for going outside on a pretty autumn day.  She found some beautiful mums to enjoy.  
My husband and I had purchased the mums at Walmart last year, on the way home from visiting my dad at a rehab hospital.  The flowers didn't last very long, but I decided to wait and see if they'd survive the winter before throwing them out - I'm glad I didn't give up on them!  They look so much better this year!
