My First... Real... Valentines Day :)

I probably could have come up with a more creative title.  But I didn't want to just say Happy St. Valentines Day or Happy Singles Awareness Day because, well.....

I'm not single anymore.

God blessed me this past year with meeting the love of my life when I least expected it.

And now as I write I can smell my first bouquet of a dozen roses sitting here in my room.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."
~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

More pictures and details to come!

A Warm Welcome to the Newest Member of Our Family!

Today I would like to introduce Marie-Grace, my newest doll.  Some Christmas money allowed me to finally add my current favorite American Girl to my collection, and I have enjoyed her so much already, even though I haven't modeled her in any of my outfits yet!   I bought her brand new in the box from a sweet girl on Ebay who wanted her to go to a good home.  Needless to say she did eventually get here, after Fedex flew her out to Portland, Oregon and back because they got the address wrong. :)

     The thing I loved most about her is her hair.   The ringlets on the sides will be perfect for regency dresses and since the rest of it is long and straight I will be able to put it up in all sorts of historical dos.  I am very excited to start sewing!!

   Speaking of sewing, I am currently officially working on the spring collection for my shop, Pemberley Threads.  Things are looking a bit scarce right now but we do have a couple things left from the last collection.   This spring I have many high hopes and plans!!!  Since this is also the time of year I put together my plan for the year of which reenactments I would like to go to, plans for new costumes for my own wardrobe are also taking place so I am pretty much sewing every minute I am not at work!  So much tizzy!!   Oh, but it's a happy tizzy.

    Well I hope you are all having a lovely lovely morning!!!!  What are you all up to anyways?
