A bit of color showing at last and the roof is going on..and by this evening it was nearly half done.
The end is in sight.
You can see lots of painting is to be done...
Here you can see where the beams were raised..and the painting that will have to be done on the porch. You see some of the beams..AND my house sign done by Penny.
Doesn't our garage look neat and tidy! Yeah, I thought so too. :)
A couple of weeks ago I showed a doll that I bought for 50 cents. Remember? A lovely little 16" Berenguer. She needed clothes..so, not wanting to spend a fortune on doll clothes, having nothing that really fit her, I began to look on ebay, and I found something so cute!
I won't put out the name of the Ebay seller..as I don't have permission..but I do want to show it to you and tell you that it is just adorable! It's all knitted by hand and I just love it. It fits her perfectly! I will be happy to send the name to you if you were to want it. I just don't want you to think I am pushing anyone's wares.
Is it not the cutest little knitted outfit? It came all the way from Gloister England. Did I spell that right?
I fell in love with it! The tiny jacket with bit buttons. The little pants with ties at the ankles...and the tiny booties to match...
This tiny jacket comes to above the waist. Sleeves and bottom are scalloped ..and I love that tiny collar.
The sleeves on the little jumper are capped..and there is a ribbon running all the way around that ties in the front.
The cap has a darling little round crown edged in scallops. There is a ribbon running around behind the brim of the hat that tightens, keeping the little hat from falling off the doll.
The back of the little jacket dips in the back but is short in the front...and...
Look...it buttons down the back..
Note the little matching booties...oh..I already mentioned those? I did?
Now if you are not into dolls, I understand. But to find a little doll of quality and take the ink marks off her and remove the grim and have her turn out so sweet..is fun. I have a tiny Great Granddaughter that will love her.
Well..darn it all, I'm tired of construction and this little outfit came in the mail today. I loved dressing her and seeing how sweet she turned out. A bit of a diversion?
