A site devoted to my love of creating historically inspired art dolls and their costuming

I can't believe it's almost Christmas already! Seems like it was just July. I've been working for about a week decorating our house for the upcoming Christmas tour of homes here in my tiny city of Port Gibson, MS. It is a lot of work, but I throughly enjoy doing it! The morning temperatures here get you in the spirit of Christmas (low 30's) but by afternoon it will be 70 here. I was born and raised in Northern Ohio and remember lots of snow, so it is still a bit hard to get used to Christmas when it is fairly warm. It was even worse when we lived in Miami! Anyhow, here are some pics of the house decorations. I have one more area to complete, the kitchen/family room, and will post those when finished, hopefully today! One "glitch" i did not really anticipate; my cat Bella is going crazy with the Christmas tree ornaments and loves eating the red berries on the artificial tree and arrangements! I did buy the shatter proof ornaments, thank goodness! Anyhow, I am itching to get back out into my doll studio!! I have a French fashion doll outfit to complete for one of my customers from New Orleans, and then I will be starting new dolls. Can't wait! Anyhow, I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday season.
