I won a drawing! Check out the lovely dolls on Beata's fabulous blog. Aren't they sweet? It is amazing to me to think of the ways that we women connect with each other through this gentle blog world. Beata is starting an etsy shop soon, so you too can own one of her lovely creations!
My little jumping bean is wearing a twirly skirt I made from a bit of purple taffeta found in a throw-away pile in my parent's basement. Look familiar, Katie? A leftover bit from my sister's prom dress, c. 1983. Whenever my daughter puts this skirt on all I can think of is Depeche Mode and Katie's hot OMD concert t-shirt, which I thought was SO COOL (even though I was solidly in a Tiffany "I Think We're Alone Now" phase). Her prom date must have found her very beguiling in her purple taffeta dress because he is now my brother-in-law.
