A Beautiful February Day

Today was the most beautiful day. Not only were the temperatures in the 60’s but the sun was shining nearly all day long. ย It is also my son Luke’s birthday and ย we had a great time celebrating his special day with family and friends. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I could not resist taking photos outdoors today. First up is Carney, my first NP and she is an early girl made in 1966. โค

Carney is wearing a very beautiful dress made by Petrana. ย Her purple boots are from Sashapotamus and they have 8 individual buckles to give her a fun, spirited look.

Carney is a very sweet girl and I have missed dressing her up. ย I love her large blue eyes. โค

Pearl is a very thoughtful girl and she loves to read. โค

Our next little lady is Chloe, an early 1966 NP with deep blue eyes. ย She is wearing a beautiful outfit made by Petrana. ย Her boots were made by Ruthsdolls. ย Chloe positioned her scarf as a sash for her dress since the weather was too warm to wear a coat and scarf. ย I like the look! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Here is Ellen, a later 66 NP with lovely graphic eyes and just a hint of eyelashes. ย  She is wearing a beautiful studio outfit by Ginny of a Passion for Sasha. ย Her wonderful leather shoes were made by Marti Murphy. โค

A Happy Holiday Hello

Image

image
Happy Holidays from Ellen a 1966 NP girl wearing a lovely white cord dress made by a Passion for Sasha. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Ellen loves her new dress. She is hoping to see her favorite brother Finn. I think that might happen. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Meanwhile, Finn has been very busy this Christmas. His Secret Santa sent him many lovely gifts this yearl ย I suggested to Finn that it was because he has been such a good boy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Secret Santa also sent a gift for a sister and Finn chose Jessie. ย Jessie, a 1967 NP girl, was so happy to receive a special present. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
They both opened their Secret Santa presents and Jessie received a fabulous pair of knitted stripy socks. She was thrilled! ๐Ÿ™‚

Finn received wonderful handmade gifts of a green hat, scarf with built-in mittens on each end, socks, a lovely off white sweater and handsome brown cord overalls. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Finn loves his new gifts very much. What a perfect hat and scarf for him! A truly wonderful Christmas gift from Secret Santas Ana and Kira in Indiana. ย Thank you very much! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Because Finn received a new Secret Santa sweater and hat, among other gifts, he was a most thoughtful boy and insisted that this new Kaffe Fassett design knitted sweater and hat by Diane Duke, that was meant for him, should now go to Drew instead. Drew is one happy boy and Finn is one generous boy! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
I love these sweaters! You might remember that Drew’s newly adopted brunette brothers (Bronson, Brodie, and Nico) all wore their Kaffe Fassett design knitted sets in an earlier post and Drew was the odd man out not having one though he said not a word. ย Well, now Drew can join his brothers in a Kaffe line-up one day! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Merry Christmas dear Drew. We can see why you like your new sweater. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Now, back to Finn. Since Finn was such a good brother to Drew, I decided to gift to Finn a new sweater and hat set that just arrived at Sasha Shangri-La. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Ta Da!! ย It is a Sesame Street sweater by Rosie Laird and it is such fun for Finn! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Finn’s friend Fetch also loves his sweater. ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Fetch, you are most fetching by Finn’s side and next to Cookie Monster! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Lastly, Finn does join Ellen to thank you for visiting with us today. We appreciate your time very much! ๐Ÿ™‚

image
Ellen and Finn both wish you a wonderful holiday week leading up to a very Happy New Year’s Day in 2016. ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx
