I have finally returned...with my "Cottage Cuties" in tow!

I had a lovely break enjoying the Thanksgiving Holiday with my family and friends and soaking in some special time with my sisters! Then, after everyone left for home...a nasty little cold/flu bug fluttered about trying to land on the members of my family...I think he is gone now! Whew!

So here they "Cottage Cuties".
Years ago I made clothespin dolls for my then young daughters...and even sold some at my small boutique. I recently uncovered a few of them and thought it would be fun to craft some new ones. They are really quite fun to make as each one develops her own personality!
I hope you enjoy perusing my little sweeties!

They are all listed for sale in my etsy shop, Cottage Cozy Boutique , where you will find many more photos too!

"Annie Angel"
"Penny Bright"
"Peggy Ann"
Each "Cottage Cutie" comes packaged in this domed plastic container perfect for
storage and gift-giving!

I am so happy to be back...I missed you all.
I am heading over to my "dashboard" right now to catch up!

Hi Carrie, I was just thinkin' about you, and then forgot to come over and check in! So it is so cool that you stopped by!

Love your little cuties!! They are adorable!! What a cute display they would make!

Glad both of our issues are cleared up! No fun at all, huh? I'm still dealing with hormonal stuff, but there's no getting around that! 2 years later you think this would be all gone!! But Nooooooooo!! God's giving me the grace to smile through it though!! :o) Gotta find the humor in these things, right? LOL!!!

Have a joyful week, and thanks so much for stopping by!!

Creative Breathing said...

Hi Carrie, Just wanted to let you know I deleted your sweet comment because I changed the post. Trying so hard to change tone of my blog. I get so discouraged that so few people visit my blog. I don't know what to do, but I am trying to not draw attention to myself ever again negatively. Your comments are always so welcomed and encouraging. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! E
