Just Because Swap--Jewels & Baby Gowns

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".
Sharon

Wow, what an amazing makeover! She was very cute and now she looks grown-up and very pretty. Therefore the first name that came into my mind was "Bella".

Nadine said...

Oh, she looks adorable! What beautiful handi-work! I think that with the pretty rose trim and her little rose bud lips she should be called "Rose"

Blessings!

Not just a sweet new dress but a hat and shoes to match.
Might I suggest...Ms. Dollie Pearl...
because of her little pearl trim.

Oh, Sharon,how LOVELY! Lynn directed me here to see this pretty fashion show. She did a wonderful job and your sweet faced baby is so beautiful! I know you are glad to have her back in your arms. I think she should be named Julianna Rose, because she came back home to you in July, she has sweet rosebud lips, and she has rose trimming on her outfit.

Sandi said...

I think Chloe Faith suits her ! I have always loved the name Chloe and never had one of my own. Whatever her name ends up being it will be just perfect.
Blessings~

Oh Sharon - Beautiful, gorgeous doll. I think the name that came to mind when I first glanced at her was Little Babette Rosette, but then I stared at her a bit longer and decided she should be Genevieve! She looks very French! xo Sherri

Leah Grace, and all of the above are so fitting. Your beautiful doll is just that: beautifully exquisite in her new 'Haute couture'. Lynn's creations are stunning pieces of artwork. So with that, my choice is 'Leah Grace' for your little beauty. Leah has several different , one of them is 'glad tidings'!
Blessings,
Linda
