New Families and Gifts
Hope everyone is having a fabulous holiday season so far. I've been crazy busy. Remember the deck I had built? Well, I've finally gotten around to staining it. I started yesterday and hope to finish by tomorrow. I've also been doing a little shopping. One for them....one for me. So I'm sharing a few new family members and a beautiful gift set I received from Cindi of Moreville.
This is new family #1. You met Mr. Fireman a few months ago. I've been admiring him on a few other blogs recently and decided he needed more presence here in Morristown. So I bought him a new woman this week. She is the 2015 Holiday Barbie. I found her on sale for $12. They took ownership of the little girl in the Eye Doctor set I just got. Names will be coming soon. She will also assume the role of teacher for the new classroom.
New family #2. When I took this picture, I was going to make Chandra (not her name here) a single mom with two little ones, whose younger sister had moved in to help. Now I remember I have the perfect guy for her. So she will be married with three kids. More on that later.
New family #3 Hip Hop Hoodie doesn't look so hip in this picture, but he is sooooo handsome in person. Go on Mattel! I decided to make these two, older sister and younger brother. That could change in the future. By the way, all the little young girls and a few of the older ones have been eyeing this guy already. I sense trouble brewing.
Now on to my beautiful gifts! Cindi blessed me with three of her crocheted creations. I've always been impressed with how quickly she learned how to crochet and actually make fitting garments for her dolls.
First up is this gorgeous sparkly blue turtleneck sweater. Kara snatched it before the others could grab it.
Next up is a two-piece dress and jacket ensemble which fits to a tee! The colors were perfect for this lovely lady.
Here is the jacket. This photo doesn't do it justice. It's so well made and it is very delicate looking. Thanks so much Cindi!!!! We love them.
