Can you believe that these pictures were taken 2 days before Christmas? I love the Texas weather.
This beautiful woman is my mom. I used the Cozy Cottage Kit which was the Bouquet of Pixels Collab Kit for March and I just had to have it the second I saw the doll at the bottom of this layout. My mom is originally from Germany and instead of the soft cushy dolls that I had as a child, my mom's baby doll was a porcelan doll from her home country. She kept this doll on the jewelry box on her dresser for years. On year, and we aren't sure if it was grandkids or cats, the doll got knocked over and broke her arm. I didn't realize just how thin the porcelan was on the doll and there was no way to fix her. One Christmas a few years later I was looking through an Appenland catalog and there was this porcelan doll (almost identical to the one on the page) and I just knew I had to get it for mom. She unwrapped it and cried. I know that it doesn't replace the other one (who still holds the position of honor on the dresser) but I love watching her smile when she looks at the new one.
