Oh, my beautiful Mattie! This was going to be a snapshot with a pioneer theme, but I just...couldn't. The pictures are too pretty. :)
Do you ever look at a picture you've taken, and it's almost as if the dolls seem...alive? She just looks so real!
The dress is one I received as a gift from an aunt, who bought it at a Farmer's Market, of all places! It's an incredible work of art, made from antique fabrics the shop owners found at thrift stores and vintage shops.
She's a bonny wee lass, my Mattie is, and the dress fits her quite well--despite being made for American Girl dolls.
That's a bluebird box in the back, by the way.
I still haven't had quite enough time to tackle some of the patterns I've gotten for her lately, and I won't have time at all next week. Argh, summer plans!
I'll be back, hopefully soon, with another post.
Have a lovely weekend!
