I love those ornaments, so pretty and just the right amount of vintage. Honestly I don't know why someone wouldn't like a giveaway. Phooey to them, and happy holidays!

Those ornaments are so pretty Karla! It sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I made two dinners yesterday, one for yesterday and one for tonight. I love not having to cook tonight, lol! Congratulations to the lucky winners of your giveaways!!!

Those dresses are adorable Karla! I once made them for a swap but you inspire me to do that again! Congrats to the winners of the give aways! Just do as you please Karla, I wouldn't mind to win something here nor anywhere! No prizes won't keep me away from commenting though! Have a great weekend!

Very cute!


Those ornaments are adorable. What a fun way to spend the holiday enjoying the company you have around and not stressing about anything.

These dollie dresses are just the most precious tree decorations. Who wouldn't just love these.
You must be the most efficient Thanksgiving cook I know. To have turkey soup made and in the frig before day is done is unbelievable.
And as far as the Giveways so popular on blogs lately - we all know it's a phase we're going through. What the next new wave to hit - - - who knows what it'll be.
Keep on bloggin'

I love your tradition of doing 'pretty stuff' while you wait for the turkey...tell us your trick to be able to do this! Do you use old Christmas cards to do the doll dresses? Could you, as tree ornaments?

Oh Karla what sweet dresses. I love that you all get some crafting in on Thanksgiving. I keep a pot ready to start soup in too. It makes leftovers sooo easy.

Glad that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Happy Holidays Karla! Simply LOVE your little vintage wallpaper dresses. The colors, the glitter, the paper doilies. Yes, these are wonderful!


Hi there!
Thanks for visiting me and leaving a comment, because now I can get to know you!
These little dresses are so clever and so sweet!
I too, had a low keyed Thanksgiving- which was just fine, except that the turkey cooked quite a bit faster than expected, so that pushed everything into high gear!
What a nice idea to do some crafty work while waiting.
See you again!


Good Morning Karla...the cheque is in the mail!!!thank you for your patience...willtry to find out about the paypal thing ..I would like to order more stuff..Lorraine

Glad to hear Thanksgiving dinner was a huge success!

Our household just (as in a couple hours ago) got another load of leftovers from parents we ate Thanksgiving with, including Turkey soup. A bin that looked like enough to last for months. Eep!

Hope you know, too, how thankful I am that you are willing to take time away from all the pretty things you have to play with to write blog posts and share some sparkle of your life.


Hi Karla.
Just a quick note to say THANK YOU for having the giveaway.
Congrats to the lucky winners!
Karla, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Your dress ornaments are very pretty!
Thanks again for letting us read all your posts.
I, for one, really enjoy them.
