HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!





I BOUGHT THESE TWO LITTLE SWEET ANTIQUE 
DOLL DRESSES IN RED A FEW WEEKS AGO 
AND DECIDED THEY NEEDED DOLLS TO FILL THEM!
FOLLOWING IS WHAT I CAME UP WITH.
I THINK THEY FIT IN WITH MY OTHER PATRIOTIC
DECOR IN OUR HALLWAY NICELY.



I USED SOME ANTIQUE HOMESPUN IN BLUE
THAT I ALREADY HAD FOR HER ‘SOCKS’. 
 

NOTE THE SWEET LITTLE POCKET.

            


THE AWESOME FLAG AND HOLDER 
ARE A RECENT PURCHASE FROM
 DON AND PAT GADDY OF 
OLDE BITTERSWEET FARM. 
I LOVE IT!


AND LASTLY THESE SWEET DOLLS BY
JACKIE SCHMIDT OF T.F.C. FOLKART
I HAVE HAD FOR YEARS HOLDING 
PINKEEPS I MADE FROM PATTERNS BY 
MY DEAR FRIEND TINA WOLTMAN OF 
EARLY AMERICA 1815 SHOPPE.

WISHING YOU A BLESSED FOURTH OF
JULY WITH YOUR FAMILIES.
MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA.
