Nature Perphanalia

More of Samantha's accessories are on my Etsy Shop

For Victorians, vacations were a time to learn about the outdoors as well as to have fun there. On sunny days at Piney Point, Samantha loaded up her pack basket and took a nature hike into the Adirondack Mountains. She chased butterflies and picked wildflowers like these.

Kirsten was so tired of wearing that hot bonnet on those hot summer days....She so wanted a cool straw hat like her cousins....and her wish came true!!! Crisp blue and white striped, short sleeved dress with cream socks and red boots...and of course the straw hat with a black ribbon and red flowers.  Had fun making this one!!!

Josefina's Quilt

Check out more doll quilts on my Etsy Shop
When Josefina lived in New Mexico in the1820's, quilts would have been a rarety.....most blankets would have been woven.  But, I like to think that Josefina's friend Patrick O'Toole, may have brought her back one from Missouri.  Josefina would have loved the bright colors in this quilt!
