In all the excitement of the gnome party,I forgot to share with you the adorable Valentines papers from BoBunny:
Are they not so sweet your teeth hurt? Also, I found this darling gnome embroidery pattern, FREE from Annie Oak Leaves:
Also, look at the wonderful fabric I won from Sweet Tidings contest:
It's a little red riding hood fabric and a bohemian print...the print made me think of Cath Kidston and Happy from Happy Loves Rosie fame. I have scanned the fabric to make paper backgrounds for my gnome book...and I will sew up pillows or some such with the actual fabric. I won the mushroom ribbon too! Isn't it grand?
I am also playing along with Elizabeth and her January tag along...with a Betsy McCall paper doll! She found this amazing website that has all the Betsy McCall dolls from the very beginning! She asked us to choose the doll from the year of our birth...odd how the fashion absolutely "fits" my style! Look!
Guess which outfit I will choose? Also, the one from my MONTH was even MORE perfect:
"Cousin Barbara" is blonde! And I REALLY had an outfit like this...the white blouse, red sash and "wild pants"...Soooooooo "me" as a teenager!
I will be making a tag from each...one for me and one for E! What fun...who says paper dolls are just for kids?!
