Sometimes, I feel like this..


It would be great to stop thinking, just once in a while :) Buttercup here looks so chilled, and without a care in the world.  She is just being (or rather, sleeping)  I love that.

Its been a busy couple of months, we adopted a new pup.  Her name is Molly.  She is pup number 12.


My beloved parents came to stay for two weeks.  It was great.  I miss them.


And since then, I have been obsessing over a large room box, primarily to use as a photography space for the things I make.  I don't play with dolls.  Really.  I don't.


I've been working on a bed design, and in the process of making lots of bedding sets. 


Dolly sized laundry sack ~


And when not obsessing over doll related stuff, I have been working in the garden.  We have 7 more acres to un-jungle.  We haven't got very far, but we intend to get it all straight by the end of summer in preparation for some new animals.  The animals will hopefully keep the land nice and tidy :)  but what animals do we choose.....

  1. Buttercup! Such a sweet cat name, really love that. Wish l could play with dolls sometimes....can get so carried away planning and making stuff, but l am just too old to play. Suppose one could say that l play around with dolls and dollshouses, and get a little obsessed :). Pup looks so sweet, cheeky little face :). Good luck with all your projects Abi, blessings, Pam x

  3. Your pets are so sweet! Buttercup and Molly...love the names. I'm glad you enjoyed your parents visit...they look so happy!
    Love your bed design and the room you built for your doll photos. I need to make one of those. Seven acres is quite a bit of land and
    no doubt takes much of your time. It will be exciting to see what animals you choose.

    1. Kim! thanks so much for stopping by :) I cant wait to see your room box. I tried to leave a comment on your blog, and couldn't for some reason - I just wanted to say how much I love the two quilts, and how cute Finley looks and congratulations to Courtney!
      Hope you have a great weekend... you seem to be very busy!!

  8. Hi Abi, great to see a post from you, it has been too long! I am not a winter person, can't seem to get anything accomplished outside when it's cold:( . Seven acres is a lot to manage, and clear. We have a total of five here, three are wooded, and the other two we mow, and maintain. Just one animal keeps me on my toes, I can't imagine 12, and more! Wow, the dedication is admirable. The dolly bed is so sweet, reminds me of the princess and the pea. Thanks for stopping in to see me, and my rockabilly pinup. I had lots of fun creating her. I agree, we are never too old to play with dolls:) XOXOX Christel

    1. Hey Christel. thanks for stopping by. I'm not so keen on working out in the cold either, although luckily, the cold in Texas, is pretty mild :) I really must make time to create another doll.. you are so inspiring with your work.

  10. Oh Buttercup! I feel like that today. :)
    I almost missed this post! I'm glad that I took a break from the garden and was scrolling through my blogger reading list.
    Molly looks adorable, I'm so glad she found you!
    I have another kitty! I haven't blogged about because...well, you know.
    But I named her Hazel. She's between 7 - 10 years old and her ear tips were frozen off and her paw pads had frostbite and dropped off.
    yep, oh and she only weighed 3.5 lbs....now she's chubby and living in my house and being bossy! LOL!
    Anyway, LOVE the doll room. you are so super talented.
    the bed, the stairs, everything, just amazing.
    Your parents look so sweet. So glad you got to spend some time with them!
    Take care Abi! xoxo

  11. I just adore anything you design for your dolls. Of course I am drawn to the beds and bedding seeing as I have a "bit" of an obsession with quilts and fabrics. Good luck clearing your land. I am sure you are never short of company while you work even if they are sleeping nearby.
