Let your soul stand ajar, always ready to welcome the ecstatic experience. ~ Emily Dickinson

I finally finished up some sweet little Doll House Dolls in honor of Mother's Day and here is a set I made for myself, a daughter and a mother, proudly propped up in an old basket on my wall!!  The pattern is by that amazing Mother/Daughter duo, the Schneemans, and it could not be more perfect or more fitting as we celebrate this wonderful day!!  I just love them!!

Each time I look at them, they make me smile and when they are grouped together, they are simply delightful....like a group of sweet girlfriends, sharing special times and secrets that only they can understand!

These dolls have all made their way down to New England Saltbox and if you think one of them will make you smile, please send me an email!!  I know they would love to come home with you!!

I'm getting ready to leave for my visit with my mother and am really excited to be going, especially as this will be the first Mother's Day I have spent with her and my two sisters in years!!  What a perfect gift for all of us!!! 

May all of you have a  wonderful Mother's Day, celebrating or being celebrated, and remembering and giving honor to that woman who you will always call.....MOTHER!!

Wishing you a truly special day filled with love~~

You again, floor me with your talent! I absolutely love these-probably one of my favorite things you have made. They are so precious...especially in what they represent.

Have such a great time with your family-I'm enthused you're able to go.

Hi Julie!....your dolls are lovely and so sweet. I love seeing them all grouped together also....just like a bunch of girls hanging out :) ~ that's what we do!

Lydia and I wanted to thank you for your kind comments on her blog. I've been away from the computer for a while so this is a little late. She enjoyed every comment she received. It was a pleasure. Thanks for being so kind always.

Wishing you a wonderful day and week ahead.

Warm hugs ~ Jenn

It seems that I am ever so tardy with my visit to your lovely corner of the world. But alas, what do I spy upon my return...a delightful gathering of dollies! They all look rather fine together surely. You have sprinkled your magic upon the stitches once again Julie!
With fond hugs,
Judy xo
