My Photo

about me

  • I am a dollmaker. I love antique fabrics and hoard them. I collect old china doll heads without bodies and leather doll bodies without heads and never put them together. I have stacks of old photos of people I don't know. I have two smart and funny kids who complain that I hang plates on the wall instead of pictures. I have a great husband who travels with me and who I used to garden with but now don't because all I do is make dolls. Luckily he still likes me. So all in all somewhat normal ...depending , of course, on who you ask.

Dear Nicol
You my dear are a delightful delicious doll! I am so thankful that you were there, and that I met you! What a dream day it was. I am still reeling it in!


Dearest Nicol! I'll hug you as much as you want!!! What fun it was, and almost as fun to re-live the day via our blogs!!! You are a true delight! and I can barely wait to see you again... next week perhaps???? Extra Birthday hugs to your darling Hubby for letting you sneak away! And of course double french kisses and chocolate hugs to you - my favorite 'Pixie Doll Queen'!

Looks like you all had an incredible bonding time! A magical place where dreams do come true! Lauren's house is as incredible as her art.

Thanks for sharing photos and your experience! I was lucky enough to spend my birthday weekend meeting with an online friend as well! The feeling was nothing short of well....magical.

I'm glad that you took the picture of the dress in the frame, I thought I took it twice, but you know me and anything mechanical!!! It was no where on my camera. Thank you for your friendship and the fun girl talk in the car on the way to Alice Lands. Sharon


Wonderland... the land of wonders...
I always thought there were 7 wonders of the world ...
Thanks to you, I know there are EIGHT !
See, I learn every day ...


Can't say that I don't envy all of you who have attended Lauren's gorgeous Wonderland tea party but but I'm happy for you all the same! I can imagine the magical spirit that was between you! Carol xox
