Good evening, Internet-Land! I hope you are well. Here in the U.S., tomorrow is our Thanksgiving holiday. As I sit here and type, I am pondering about all the different people who may read my blog. Tomorrow, some of you may be looking forward to large family gatherings. Some may have plans with small, intimate groups. Some may be alone. Some will celebrate the day, while to others it’s just another Thursday. Whoever you may be, and however you may be spending the day, know that my thoughts are with you ~ even if it seems in a very small way. I’m thankful you came to my site, and I want you to know that you are valued. I guess tonight I wanted to take a couple minutes and express gratitude for this strange and amazing thing we call technology and the way it allows people to connect. Sometimes the world can seem big and impersonal, but I hope you feel that you can come here for some fun and cheer, knowing that your visit is appreciated.
Here is a bit of news on the dolly scene. As the Christmas season is approaching, I took a stroll down the store ornament aisle this past week. I was tickled to find two cute items to add to my collection of fun accessories. The first is a perfectly dolly sized parasol, and the second was an adorable lamp! Both items are pictured with 16 inch dolls. Just a reminder that you can often find great doll items in non-doll places! Following the photos are some fun freebies, so be sure to read to the end!
And now, to help celebrate the spirit of Thanksgiving, I present another outfit set for El. It is designed on 8.x11 inch paper. For any of you who may be here for the first time, the El doll (along with other outfits, other doll sets, sewing patterns, & coloring crafts) can be found by clicking on my “Free Stuff” tab in the top menu bar (depending on your device, you may need to click on a “Menu” button first). If you scroll down to the end of the page, you will find the little Girl Bear Pilgrim set that is companion to my last post. Just right-click on the item of choice and choose “save image as” to download & print. It’s all for your enjoyment. Wishing you a beautiful holiday!
