Festival Gifts

…distance means so little, when someone means so much.

This is Veriity a beautiful repaint by Janet Myhill-Dabbs. I took her to the festival, along with another doll, to be restrung by Mary Righos. Poor Veriity couldn’t hold her head up or stand and I hadn’t noticed since she was in a cabinet with close sisters on each side that held her up. Isn’t it nice she had close sisters to lift her up? Verity had a wonderful time in Syracuse!

Verity has no trouble standing on her own now. Thank you Mary!

I thought I would share a few lovely gifts from lovely friends. A A beautiful dress for Christmas.

A sweet primitive doll and brown leather shoes and socks by Ruthsdolls.

A sweet reversible top for a toddler doll. I hope my new toddler will be arriving soon. Very excited!

Very thoughtful hostess gifts from table hosts. I love the Christmas holiday theme.

Sasha sized overalls and top. Adorable!



This sweet knitted outfit for a Sasha baby was my win in the gift exchange.


This was one of the festival gifts. Handmade apron and oven mitts. Plus the cute holiday ornaments seen below.


Most of you probably have seen the movie “The Christmas Story”. It is narrated by Ralphie who is remembering Christmas as a boy. There is a scene where his brother Randy is over dressed by their mother in a snow suit to keep him warm. This gift looks very much like the one in the movie. It is terrific! I love the knitted scarf and mittens and leather boots that make it a perfect snowsuit.


This beautiful smocked dress was the last festival gift received on Saturday night after dinner. It was made by Julie Ruleman. I understand Julie made 5 different designs on the smocking and mine is holiday garland. I love the delicate stitching and I cannot imagine making so many beautiful dresses. I am very thankful to receive one and major kudos to Julie!

I will post again soon to share the CFC auction wins, a display doll for the Susanna Lewis display, a raffle win, and an a new addition to the Sasha family that had eluded me for years. Very excited!

Thank you for visiting with us today. Have a wonderful week ahead. 😊
