Playing with Kathy Patterson Dolls From Peggy Flavin

I so love the dolls of many of my doll making friends. Kathy Patterson is my dear friend and maker of the most beautiful Queen Anne woodens of the 1700's and even earlier on occasion.

Peggy Flavin is a lover of these dolls who happens to own some of them. I asked permission of Peggy to share her pictures from her blog Dolls In The Neatest Manner. You will want to go there to read what she says and of course, you will have to explore her blog more closely to get all of this wonderful story down right.

I have only beautiful and delightful pictures of hers in which to enchant you completely!

ENJOY!

My Little Bella Dolls


I have been working on an order for many of my dolls. Here is a batch of the Bella's, waiting in my art room window to be properly photographed before being sent to their new owner.

I have had some requests for some of my Bella's recently, and promise I will fill these requests as soon as I have time.

Thank you so much for your support of my dolls. I enjoy so very much the entire process of creating them.

Dahlias in the Window



I love dahlias. But I only have one plant of them, in my favorite color of very pale pink. Due to the wind and the rain of late, they have been bending over and breaking. First there was one, so I popped it into my antique pickle jar vase. Then another, and finally there are quite a few of them. I actually could have used the beautiful, Victorian era tall pitcher, but that thought never entered my mind until now. I will wrap my remaining beauties so that no more breakage will occur.
