About Me

My photo
IMAGINATION IS THE EYE OF THE SOUL Joseph Joubert. I am a mother of four...I still remember the smile that refused to go away for weeks after our daughters birth. To have a little girl appear after three sons seemed such a miracle. I have always enjoyed My Doll World, sharing it with Lara when she was little. Today I design knitted outfits for miniature dolls and enjoy every minute of it. The fact that the outfits are removable is what makes it so special for me. Using ever finer threads has opened so many MINIATURE DESIGN opportunities.

Days of Our Lives

I have decided that from now on I will buy myself
A Birthday present....
Sooooo.....I have ordered another Helen Kish doll from 

The Denver Doll Company


Cosette is a BJD and only a mere 5 1/2" high!

Don't you just love her Mary Janes!!!
She will only be shipped in the middle of May so I have to be very, very, very patient.
I love her colouring and am already dressing her and thinking of toys for her.

She will have her very own 1:144 Scale French Townhouse

which I have ordered in 
"Kit Form" from Keith Bougourd"


I have to get ready for the project as it should soon be in the post.
I have it on good advice to use Aleene's Aliphatic glue.
Now that is a big word like Jam

This glue is water resistant so if you make a mistake you will need to "un glue" it with a coat of vinegar, which will soften it again after a few minutes.

I am sure she is going to love the Little Mice
 that I have waiting for her ....the mice also have to have toys so Ana is busy with THAT

In Ana's cupboard is a Teddy who wears a pink bow...

for that Little Bear to come and live with me

I will have to make her something very special



  1. Happy Birthday!
    Don't you just love waiting for things to arrive in the mail. Provided they don't take too long.
