Our Nancy

Ah, Summer! So many places to go! So many people to see! Sometimes you’ve just got to do a little uncomplicating to your life. For the duration of summer I’m going to do more traditional dolls. AND! I’m going to do more of them. Just because something is “simple” doesn’t mean it’s boring…

Thus begins my post for O.L.D. No. 00047 Nancy, who was unusually put up for adoption on a WEDNESDAY, and the *First* in the Simplicity Series. You can see her adoption page HERE.

Look at those hollyhocks! At their peak, they were the tallest ones in town. Then a storm came through and oh! How the mighty have fallen…

By the way, it’s not me that has places to go and people to see! No sir! I can usually be found hunkered down in my house, aka “The Hideaway”, and lately I shall be even more so. I recently had to quit one of my extra little jobs for physical reasons. I swear, I thought I had another hernia! I’m going in for more tests. Either way, I find myself incapable of doing some things. Lucky for me, I can still sew! And so I shall.

My first pajamas!

My first pajamas!

To gear myself up for doing more than three or four dolls a month, I’m going to stick to more traditional styles. Still fun for me! Know why? Because now the challenge will be in making them as adorable as possible without gymnastics.


Two dresses, a coat, a hat, pajamas, and a long pointy hat to wear to bed. And shoes. And undies, of course.

These shall be simple girls in era-traditional straightforward styles. Straightforward, excruciatingly cute styles, that is. At least, that’s what I shall strive for!

Nancy was started on a Wednesday, and an as-yet-to-be-named girl shall be going up for adoption on Sunday. That’s right. TWO dolls at the SAME TIME.

Here’s our Nina. Isn’t she pretty? I’ve so missed working with her! It feels like old times.




I’ve also just finished the sketches for the new chapters and Nina is hard at work on the illustrations. How I’ve missed that girl!


Marjorie and Nancy got a chance to pose together when Nancy was having her “before” photos taken. They are Sisters Of Different Sizes.




If all goes as planned, OCTOBER 1ST is going to be a MAGICAL date.

In the meantime, Marjorie is going to someone new…Michelle E. of Colorado! Well, I mean, not super new. But it’s been awhile…Thank you, Michelle!

And with that, I leave you! Happy Friday! You’re my favorite.
