Patience in Purple Roses

Do you know the meaning of purple roses?  I must confess that I didn’t even think purple roses actually existed so I googled purple roses and read about them here.  They are real, a human invention, but they do exist.

Purple roses convey enchantment and enthrallment which is definitely how I felt about Patience the very first time I caught a glimpse of her.  Who better to wear my new doll ensemble featuring this beautiful fabric of purple roses.

Even though the word enchantment by definition can be fleeting, I am still much enchanted with Patience, aren’t you?

More Springlike Thoughts Coming Your Way

Little Amelia Thimble is here today to bring you a bit of springlike cheer.  Sorry, but a bit is all she can bring being that she is only 4 inches tall.  Nevertheless, I’ll take every tiny bit of springlike cheer that comes my way.

Some Springtime Thoughts for the Winter Weary

Are you tired of winter?  I am, most definitely.  It’s hard when you think you’ve gotten through the bulk of it (January, it’s the worst, right?) and here comes February and shows you that winter hasn’t even started yet.

I know that here in Illinois we shouldn’t be complaining.  Compared to those that live out east we’ve practically gotten off Scott-free.  Nevertheless, I am tired of the cold and snow.

I have had a busy week and a half working on more springlike outfits for the Little Darlings, Patience, and Amelia Thimble.  So, I continue to create my own garden here inside with pretty fabrics, colorful thread and yarn, and various kinds of needles.  I have everything I need here in my small studio to invent a bit of spring when there isn’t anything at all outside except snow… and more snow.

I cannot help thinking that since we are on the back side of February this all has to be over soon, right?  We can only hope.

After a busy day yesterday spent photographing, editing, and updating sites I have something new to show you for the Little Darlings and I promise it is very springlike.

I love pink and blue and often wonder which is my favorite color.  I never can decide.  I think that I love them both equally which is why I so enjoyed creating this outfit.  It is a lot of pink and a lot of blue!

What about you, do you like pink or blue?


A huge apology is due here.  This set for the Little Darlings got mistakenly published on my website last night so is no longer available for sale.  So, so sorry!!!  I am definitely red faced this morning.  I hope you enjoyed the springtime photos anyway.
