I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for the support and condolences since my last post about my dad passing. It helps more than you could possibly know, so thank you so very much. Even if you didn’t leave a comment, thank you for reading my post. My dad will continue to live on in my heart.
One of my last dear memories of my dad was from this past December when he commented on how he visited my blog and got caught up as to what I was doing and making; he said he was proud of me. I’ll never forget the fact that he took the time to see what I was doing even though dolls held no interest for him. He was such a dear!
When I got home on Wednesday I had two new packets of goodies to have fun with: four new wigs and three sets of eyes. Right away I had to try something on Penny. Here she is wearing a Kemper Giselle wig in blonde and Eyeco platinum eyes in Lady Blue. I wasn’t sure of the shade of blonde this wig would actually be; it’s the same color as Helen Kish’s Riley doll’s hair! The eyes are a deep blue violet, really pretty. I guess one of my favorite new pastimes is giving Penny a new look, she looks cute so many ways.
Yesterday I embroidered a mohair cardigan for the Little Darlings. I’ve had this sweater knit since my last trip to Florida and had made the dress when I got home in mid January. Most likely this ensemble will go on record for taking the longest to complete. As of Friday afternoon, it still isn’t finished.
Today, I did a little straightening up in my sewing room and found a couple of things for Amelia Thimble and Izzy , and my Pukipuki’s first dress that I made for her. I was in the mood for something lighthearted and cutesy, so I had a little photo shoot with them.
Amelia Thimble wanted to play with my music box gramophone ( a vintage piece from my grandma). She had no idea what a gramophone was, so I had to explain it to her. Amelia thought that the ‘funnest’ part was when her teddy bear got a ‘ride’ on the record.
Little Izzy loves her super soft floor puppy pillow. Oh, and there’s that silly rabbit again; he’s always trying to photobomb every photo.
These three ensembles will be for sale at special prices (cindyricedesigns.com) on Saturday night, 7:00 pm, CST.
Thanks for reading my blog; bye for now!
I really like Penny’s wig and eye color. That one can wear anything! So cute. A Penny was on ebay recently, but went for way over my budget. There is another with the elf ears also expensive. I was thinking of putting in an order at jpop, but the only Penny being offered for delivery next August is one in tan. It is hard to visualize in their photo how she would look in something different than the red wig they are showing.
The white sweater and Izzy’a little dress are my favorites. So pretty. And I don’t want Amelia or Pukipuki to feel bad so, tell them they did excellent work in the photo shoot.
Looks like the sun finally came out. Must get out and take a walk.
Take care of yourself.
Penny does seem to look cute in anything, and so different in each look too. My Millie is sun kissed if you want to see what she looks good in. I actually prefer the this color as the natural sometimes wants to go yellow-y in photos. The sun kissed is very light and about the same intensity (darkness) as a Little Darling only a bit more golden. I just got my new Gracie and she is in the sun kissed resin. I will post photos of her soon. I have an email in to Jpop asking them if the tan resin is the same as the sun kissed resin. I’ll let you know.
I need to get out for a walk today too; it is sunny and in the 50’s, not bad for February in the midwest.
Yes, please let me know about the tan/sun kissed color. Think they are only taking orders until some time in March. Thanks.
Yes , your Dad will continue to live on in your heart !❤️
I love this little Penny , so cute , and your outfits are wonderful …
Wish you a beautiful day , from France .
Thanks so much Catherine. Today is a beautiful day in Illinois. Hope it is just as beautiful where you live in France. I am off for a walk now in the warm sunshine. 🙂

Penny is so lovely with her new wig and eyes!
The new dresses are really beautiful and I love the mohair cardigan!
I think of you!
Thank you so very much! I finally finished the outfit that the mohair cardigan belongs to. 🙂
My dear Cindy….I just read about your father and I am so sorry to hear that he passed away. I’m happy though that he left a meaningful and positive memory for you that will last a lifetime. Remembering you in my prayers, dear friend. Loving hugs! Carol
Thank you so very much, Carol! We are all missing him terribly, but every day more and more sweet memories of him bubble to the surface. I appreciate your prayers at this difficult time, Carol, thank you. ❤
