I know dolls aren't for everyone...but I do have a few..because..to be honest, I never outgrew them.

...and actually, I never want to.  This is a lovely Christening gown that I found for one of the dolls..and I wanted to share it with those of you ..who..might be interested.

The reason is because I thought the work that went into this gown was so nice and..ok..
I was short of things to post about..
Actually that's not true either.  This was just..easy!  There!  That's the truth!

Being one that adores roses...and being that softly pastel ones are my favorites,  this lovely gown caught my eye.
Sooo cute!  Sooo sweet.  (at least to me)

Better than this would be a live baby, or..say, a tiny kitten, or a fluffy puppy dog.  *sigh* 
Can you imagine a little pink dog collar with these roses on it?  And a tiny silver bell. 

...not to mention these tiny beaded shoes to go with it?  Anyway..
That's it.
Don't make me feel bad because there is still this tiny girl inside.  I think she lives in all of us women. 
Hide her though we might, she is there. 
She IS there!

Many hugs to you.  :)

P.S.  I know this because I am very wise!!  LOL


  1. The gown is beautiful and so is the doll. Would you believe my mothers maiden was Doll!

    Yes, we all have that little girl inside and I never want to lose her!


  2. Oh, sweet friend...you know how much joy this brings to me! I share your love for dolls and I do believe it feels wonderful to dress a doll in something lovely and enjoy her! This Christening dress is gorgeous...and look at those tiny shoes! I love her sweet face and pretty bonnet! JOY...pure JOY! You've made my evening! HUGS!!! ♥♥♥

  3. I have loved dolls all my life...and now try to instill that love in my granddaugter. Most of my dolls from childhood were lost in a move when I was 13 years old and I've grieved about that ever since:( I also love and collect teddy bears. I would never, never want to lose that part of me that is still a little girl. Hope you had a lovely Christmas.

  4. I'm not a collector, but I do appreciate a pretty or sweet doll. I liked them as a kid, and so did my daughter, but the granddaughter never wanted anything to do with dolls. Sigh!

  5. I love dolls and little clothes for them. This gown is beautiful as is the doll. The shoes are over the moon fabulous! Never lose your love of dolls...

  6. Beautiful. I love the roses and trim.


  7. Perfect doll and I do love dolls but with 4 sons I didn't have too many around the house, so I wemt with teddy bears; they are still all around my place.

  8. Love your pretty baby! How sweet she looks in her new gown. I love the tiny pink roses and pearls. So sweet!

  9. Well you know I'm a doll fanatic! I never grew out of them either. Actually I only had two when I was growing up so I feel quite justified in having them now. The more, the better. I adore your doll and her outfit. The roses are perfect. I would love a cuddle with her.
    Here's a confession because it's good for the soul - I take my Emily to bed every night.

  10. Wonderful photos!I too have a collection of dolls.I tried to photograph them for my blog but I don't like the way the photos came out.Your sweet girl is so pretty.I was going to say that I have at my age,58,rather have dolls than a real baby but I had to delete it because it is still not true.Good thing my husband at 66 is not reading this.

  11. Oh sweetie, don't apologize! If truth be known there is a little girl roamin' around in all of us! Your little baby doll is just precious!

    Ya'll have a most blessed day my friend!!!

  12. My fondest memories are of my precious bride doll with a dress that my Mom made. Love your baby...Balisha

  13. Hi. So glad that you found my blog so that I could find yours. What a beautiful blog you have. I love dolls as well. I still have some of my dolls when I was a child. They don't look as nice as yours.
    Your little Emily is so adorable. It will be fun following you.

  14. What an adorable doll & gown, Mona. I have never outgrown that wonderful baby doll stage in life ... how ever could one?!

    I hope you had a beautiful Christmas & wish you a blessed & joyful New Year.

    Thank you for being a wonderful friend, I so enjoy our visits.

    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  15. Your just the sweetest Mona!
    Yes, I have that little girl inside me too!
    And that gown is truly exquisite! What an incredible piece of work.
    Happy New Year my good friend,
    And I told my Mom hi from you too!
    Big Hugs,

  16. PRECIOUS!!! I love your baby doll! I join you in being a little girl at heart...thank you for sharing Mona!

  17. Hello Mona,

    Your doll has the sweetest little face! I am not a doll collector but I have two antique dolls. One was my mother's when she was a little girl and the other belonged to my aunt (mom's sister). I think the Christening outfit is gorgeous! I have been looking for a new dress for my mother's doll and would not hesitate to get something like that for her.

    Oh my sweet friend you are so wise and right on when it comes to the truth we are still little girls on the inside :)
    Thank you for such a delightful post.
    I work at an Antique mall and have not seen anything to compare to your gorgeous doll !
    Her clothes and shoes are simply precious .
    Have a very blessed New Year.
    Hugs from me to you :)
    Until next time
    Happy Trails

  19. Mona, don't ever aplogize for loving dolls...they are treasures and I love them, too. When we moved from Nebraska to Arizona when I was a teenager,they somehow, did not come off the moving truck and I have missed them for more years than I want to tell.

    The dress is beautiful, but those little shoes just take the cake!
    Toasty Hugs,

  20. Hi Mona!!!

    I just wanted to come by and wish you a very blessed new year and let you know that I am leaving Blogland...I just don't have the time anymore to keep up. I'll be lurking out here though as my schedule allows!! ;)


  21. I don't think any of us outgrew our childhood dolls! Why else did we graduate on to have babies?

    This is just too, too beautiful for words - the work that has gone into making the dress, bonnet and shoes, simply marvellous. I'm not a needlewoman myself, but I can recognise perfection and craftsmanship!

    All that I can say now is...I'm so envious! Your doll is absolutely gorgeous :)

  22. I love that baby doll! Too cute, and love how creative you are in this post. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and wish you a happy new year!
