On Thursday, Lynn (http://lynnslovelies.blogspot.com/) & I met at my favorite restaurant Niko-Niko Japanese. Yummy! We finally uncovered our goodies (Lynn got jewelry & I got my baby back). Mine came in a gorgeous pink large jeweled sack! (Actually, I was so excited that I had to open it up just before we got done eating.) Inside was my "baby girl"!!! (Gosh, I did not know how much I had been missing her.) When all of the wrappings came off, my heart skipped several beats. There before me was the most precious work I have ever received. Babies hat---all I could think was WOWOWWEE! All of the detail, all of the intricate stitches, the soft fluffy yarn in creams & soft rose, the ribbons and the pearls, each tiny detail was not missed by my eyes. Look at that darling rose colored perfection that rims the bonnet!!! Lynn, oh, Lynn, you far out did yourself!! (Now all of that just begins to describe the bonnet.) Next the dress... Rows and rows & rows of details all tied up with creamy ribbons, the neckline, all the way down to the hem of rose and pearls is absolute perfection. Well, I thought that was absolutely the BEST! But then I looked on down ....Baby finally got her shoes (with pearls and all the trim)!
I have attached the BEFORE (oh, my poor baby doll looked so sad) and now I have the best AFTER I could have ever hoped for! Didn't Lynn do a wonderfully delicious job???
Baby has a few words to say:
"Look at my dashing new dress! Don't you just LOVE it??? I am so excited that I want to have a party, will you come? I am making out the invitations, right now, all I need is your comments & you will be invited! Oh, wait, I guess you might not know who the invitation is from because I don't even have a name. Will you give me a REAL name? My Momma has called me "baby" for 37 years and I am so over that!!!! (Mom was 26 years old when I was given to her! I guess I am close to an antique by now..an antique with no name) In order to have a birth certificate & make me a real citizen in good standing, I will need to have a real honest to goodness name, (like all the other girls). Now that I have a new outfit the party date has been set for August 1, 2009. Will you send your ideas to my Momma? On August 1st she will have the two neighbor girls to pick out a name that will go with my new dress & it will be my name for the rest of my life! I am soooo excited! Thank you ahead of time!"
Yours truly, Used to be The Baby
This is what I wanted to do...You send a comment with a name that is appropriate for this little one & my two grand daughters will pick out the name that "fits" her personality then I will award you a new piece of jewelry.... So think hard, leave a comment with a name & you may/will receive one of my newest creations!!!
Thanks for playing along & "thank you again, Lynn, for your creation & for your dear friendship".
