Easter Fashion Show!



The finest clothing made is a person's skin, but, of course, society demands something more than this.  ~Mark Twain

Our granddaughter Anne Marie's 7th birthday was three days ago, so we combined it with Easter for one big celebration! And look what my blog friend Katie made for her!!! These beautiful clothes for her American Girl doll! The clothes are perfectly tailored, with the finest material and awesome sparkly details. Anne could hardly believe her eyes! You can check out Katies blog HERE. She has adorably cute Westies, a beautiful blog, and varied postings. And Katie does this all as an act of kindness and does not sell her clothes. Thank you Katie!! What is your favorite? Anne's is definitely the purple. Did you play with doll clothes when you were a child?


“Here’s what I want you to do: Buy your gold from me, gold that’s been through the refiner’s fire. Then you’ll be rich. Buy your clothes from me, clothes designed in Heaven. You’ve gone around half-naked long enough. And buy medicine for your eyes from me so you can see, really see.”
Revelation 3

Happy Birthday Anne Marie!

Anne is such a beautiful young lady. All of the clothes for her doll are so pretty and the detail is amazing. Katie did a wonderful job on those.

I did play with dolls. Sometimes my grandmother would make a dress for me and if she had leftover fabric she would make a matching one for my doll.

They are all special. My favorite photo, however is the last one of Anne Marie. Her little-girl look is transforming into an elegant and charming big girl look. They grow up so fast. I am happy to see her enjoying her American Girl doll.
