Miss AGPT-Round #2- Forever

This round was quite challenging if I have to say so myself. I kept thinking and thinking what represents forever? Finally, I decided on this photo:


Pets love us forever and quickly become a integrated part of our families so I thought this photo is a good interpretation of Forever. Everyone did a great job with this round. It was neat to see the different interpretations of Forever. Can't wait for next week!

Miss AGPT- Round #1- Patriotic

First off, I hope you and your family enjoyed a great July 4th weekend! This month I am participating in Miss AGPT on the American Girl Playthings Forum. I entered my #48, Paisley.  Round #1 is Patriotic and I submitted this picture:

One of my family's traditions for Independence Day is making homemade ice cream. I wanted to capture that in this round so Berkley joined Paisley for some cold homemade fun. The girls dressed in their most patriotic clothing and this picture came together. I was pleased with the colors. Looks like it is going to be a fun month. There are so many talented members. I can't wait to see what the other rounds hold.

And for fun here is another variation of this photo:

Thanks for reading!

Happy Memorial Day!

Remember freedom is not free. Take time today to honor those who gave their lives as a sacrifice for our freedom!

Felicity goes a'walkin!

 It was a warm late spring day. Felicity had finished her chores and Momma gave her permission to walk to the Cole's house to see Elizabeth. Felicity ditched her sun bonnet when Momma wasn't looking. Freckles didn't concern her very much anyway and the bonnet just got in the way of having fun. She thought she'd take her time on the walk to the Cole's. She was walking down the path and spotted some pretty purple flowers. "These would be wonderful to take back to Momma," she thought.

Soon, Felicity decided to walk to her favorite climbing tree. She loved sitting in this tree and watching the townspeople go by. Climbing the tree was very un-ladylike, Momma would be angry with her if she knew about it. Felicity was supposed to be acting like a gentlewoman and a gentlewoman certainly didn't climb trees.

 "Ahhhhhh, I love this warmer weather and I just can't wait until summer... I love going to Grandfather's plantation and spending time with him!"
"Well, I best be on my way to the Cole's.. I have lots of things to tell Elizabeth!"

Happy Easter!

Today was a great day! When I got home from church, I found that the Easter Bunny came and left me a basket! It was full of fun goodies. The weather is absolutely beautiful and we are planning an egg hunt with my cousin Isabelle and some friends this evening. How has your day been?
Happy Easter!
