~Malking Dolls with Scarves~

Back in February…I made a doll for my blogging friend, Cheryl, for her birthday. I loved this pretty dark brown scarf that I used for her dress.

Then this month…my friend, Linda, had her birthday and I decided to make her a doll too. I used a peach scarf with black strips.

Here is a close up of her little sewing goodies that are on the doll’s dress.

Well…after making those two dolls. I decided to do a makeover on the angel doll that hangs in our dining room.

She had a cream colored dress when I got her and it is still on her. I just added the long brown scarf on her and also added a sweet pinafore and a vintage pin. So if I change my mind…I just have to take the scarf off and she is back to the cream dress.

Hoping to blog more often…now that I’m retired from doing shows. I had a yard sale last weekend…trying to get rid of left over stuff from all the shows that I did. Sadly…we only had a few people stop by our yard sale. So most of it went to the Goodwill. My niece and her husband are just starting to do shows…so we gave them our indoor booth and a friend of my daughter’s is buying our tent, because he wants to do some outdoor shows.

Now I’m looking forward to the next chapter of my life…whatever it might be.

Until next time…. blessings from me to you. ~Cindy

~Easton Railway~

Last weekend…we went to one of our favorite shopping placing in Columbus and they had a train display in the shade of the trees.

At first…we saw two small blue trains.

Than came two more longer trains.

Then all three trains caught up with each other…so I was able to get all of them in one photo.

I have always loved trains. I can still remember the train that my dad put under the Christmas tree every year and he recently gave one to my little grandson to put under their tree.

Also wanted to share with you what greeted me when I went outside the other day. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one like this butterfly before. Does anyone know what kind it is?

~Wanting More White in the Living Room~

Before our trip to Tennessee…my sister and I went out junking to a few of our favorite junk/thrift shops. Right when I walked into the store…I saw this beautiful large white pitcher and it said it had to come home with me. Cost $5.00…someone made it and it was signed on the bottom.

I have it displayed on a stand by the front door and it looks very  pretty in the evening with the lights in it.

I’m still working on things in the living room.

My little Yorkie, Chloe…loves the old cart. When I can’t find her, I now know to look under the cart. I think she thinks that she is hiding…but it seems to be her favorite place right now.

I’m still working on changing some things out in our living room. I really want more white in our living room. So I’ll be trying to work on that over the summer. Hope to find some white goodies at the Endless Yard Sale.

I loved the white pitchers on the tavern shelf…but my hubby put up a shelf in the kitchen for my white pitcher collection and they looks great in there.

I also really like the white quilt and the white farm sign in my dining room.

Think I’ll go thru some of my magazines and favorite blogs to get some white ideas for my living room.

Until next time…..blessings from me to you. ~Cindy
