Its been awhile since i've posted

Its been  quite awhile since i've been here!
 I hurt my hand last fall, Tendonitis.
When I tried to get on my blog some time back, I couldn't find it in my google account, it took me quite awhile to figure out what happened.

In the meantime I got hooked on the Jodi Arias Trial! I watch it live  on the internet. AND FINALLY next week is closing arguments!

 My two little senior dogs have had some medical problems this year.  My Pug Maggie made a few visits to the vet and Zoey my yorkie who will be 15 years in a couple of months has some medical problems.
 So now Maggie is pretty much back to her normal self and I'm working on Zoey to make her feel better.
 Here's a picture I took of  Maggie getting her nails trimmed by
               Dr. Bankstahl at Parkway Animal Hospital here in Michigan.

 Zoey right after her bath.

Anyways I'm doing some sewing.  I made up this miniature Ellie, shes not finished yet I have to sew her ears on. I'm going to make her a little outfit and she will come in this box that I have to decorate.
She stands 4 1/2 inches tall and she's fully jointed. 
Have a nice weekend!

My New Project

My daughter found this old china doll in an antique shop last weekend. She has her original slip and pantaloons and she is about 12 inches tall. Her body is filled with sawdust. 

I have quite a few pieces of Victorian lace and fabric that I used to collect, so I'm going to pick out some pieces and make her a long dress. Since she's an antique, she's going to have a real antique dress. 

I've got some nice vintage hats with little flowers, so maybe I'll put some of these little flowers on her dress too.

  Meet Betty and Billy Goat...................

I just finished these little spun cotton ornaments. They measure 4 3/4" tall.
I embroidered tiny flowers around her skirt. They will be hanging on my feather tree this year.

I sure missed visiting my blog friends!
But i've been having reoccuring back problems and at times its just too painful to do anything!
I hope everyones doing well!

Some of my Aqua Pieces

 I just purchased these 2 old aqua bottles yesterday at the antique shop.
 These two bowls are very heavy and are about 6 1/2" tall. I purchased them at my favorite antique shop a few years ago.
 The tallest piece measures 9 1/2"
And the bottle on the left is a vintage Avon bottle.
I bought the little Hobnail vase for 50 cents.
 This glass tray is from around 1900.
My mother made the shoe some years ago, and the figurine in this picture and the one in the other picture I also have in pink. I bought them at an estate sale last year.
 I just love this creamer and sugar bowl from the 30's or 40's
Another pretty piece I bought a few years back from my favorite antique shop.
 Cute little salt and pepper shaker.
And my little couple.


 Christmas book written in 1898.
Its a nice size about 11" tall and lots of pages.
This christmas book is tattered but has some nice pictures and stories, and of course has lots of aqua color on it.
I found some of these tickets inside.
Would anyone know anything about them?

 I went down the road to an estate sale earlier today and this is what I brought home. An old silver tinsel christmas tree, 2  vintage storks, the large stork is 10 1/2" tall.
And 3 old santa ornaments.

 And from The Christmas Tree Shop I bought brownies to make for halloween with their very own grave stones to print the guests names on.

 An owl spoon rest

 And some spooky towels!
 And I ordered these from QVC  not long ago for the fall, I like that they have timers so they go on and off at the same time every evening.
