Scriptures, Sisters, & Sweeties

Hello again. It's very early Saturday morning. Woke up with a scripture in my mind that has been present there for days. I'll share...

Trust in the Lord with all your heart & lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him & He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5

Why God is filling my brain with this particular scripture is a mystery and blessing all at the same time. I'm just going to thank Him for it and share it as often as possible. Praise His holy name.

We have had a short respite from SNOW, and I am very thankful for it. Here in Kansas we have had the wettest, whitest Winter on record.. for over 100 years. It's still COLD (morning temps have been below zero wind chills), but at least it's dry. The sun is a welcome sight. I'm sure in a few months we'll be wishing for a break from the HEAT.

Here's a few more dolls I have finished and listed on eBay.

This is Faith Noelle. Her Ornie is a Scripture..."I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me...".

Maizee Lou Cat is a sweet little feline. Her Ornie says, "Simplify".

Betsie Anne Bunny has a tiny woven Basket with speckled eggs, oh... and she also tells all to "Simplify".

Theresa has a beautiful dress that is made from some of the loveliest toile fabric I have ever seen. It's a Delft Blue print with tiny scenes of boating and play... probably from early in the 20th century. I had a wonderful friend of the same name that went home to be with the Lord years ago. We all miss her.

Last (but not least) I have a set of 2 Raggedy Sisters. Lisa & Kelly Raggedys are dressed alike, Kelly is smaller because she is the younger sister. I named them after two Sisters I have known since childhood.

I hope my post finds you happy, healthy, & basking in God's love.

Please come again,

Long time no see...

I'm so sorry I've been 'away' from my blog for so long. I could claim that it's because our family moved.. that was a hideous chore and did keep me away from the computer a while. I could say that I've just been so busy... well, that's true, busy with trying to make up for lost time making dolls. I'm almost back up to speed now though. I'm afraid that the biggest reason though is because I'm hooked on Facebook. Doggone many friends there, so much to read, so much to do (games, etc.)... it's addicting. Hello... my name is Penny and I'm a Facebook addict!

How was your Valentine's Day? Our's was spent unpacking a mountain or two of boxes from our move. Ick.. not exactly romantic. I did make and sell a lot of Valentine's Day themed dolls though.

Now I'm making St. Patrick's Day dolls. Lots of Irish people out there, thank God!

Next will be Easter and bunnies have been on my creative menu already.

Here's a few dollies I have listed on eBay right now.

Ciaran Aberdeen (don't you just love her name??).

Sinead McGowan.. (another cool name).

Linda Jo Iddie Biddie Kittie.

Caroline Iddie Biddie Kittie

Tawnie Mae Raggedy & Trixie Sheep Her listing actually ends tonight (Wed. 2/24)

Thanks for dropping by. Missed you all and missed your sweet comments.
Oh.. I'm trying to put together a Blog Giveaway. Just have to set my mind to it, right? Would anyone like that?

God Loves us All!
