Brown Paper Packages.......

Everyone likes the postman to call and a few days ago I opened the door to my postie and accepted a very exciting package tied up with string.  And in it was........ a few bits of wood!  BUT these were no ordinary bits of wood - this was beautifully presented wooden doll kit from Sophie Tilley Designs.  I'd been coveting a vintage wooden doll (pictured on the right) on ebay but she sold for much more than I could afford so I was really glad I'd ordered my doll kit. 

I saw Sophie's doll kit on Pinterest (I spend far too much time there) and when I followed the link to her Etsy shop I was  surprised to find it was not based in the US but in North Wales.... in fact only 30 or so miles away from me in the village of Trefriw!  Trefriw is well known to me as my Great Great Grandparents are lying in the churchyard there.  How's that for an enabler!  I've a few projects to get out of the way before I make my doll but I'm enjoying planning her in my head.


  1. She's lovely isn't she. What will you call her?

  2. She is fabulous! I can't wait to see the finished product :-D

  3. Oh Ann look at her face - what a beautiful job you have made already! Also wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for 'Miss Daisy' who arrived and now has pride of place between some treasured vintage gorgeousness in my craft room.

    Thanks again,


  4. Oh how adorable!!!! She's perfect for spring!!! :) Have fun with your new dolly!

  5. What a fabulous idea! I have not seen these at all and super excited to see what will become of them... I'm sure they will amazing. Your first doll is darling. Love those rosy cheeks you gave her.

    And yes, I read your email about the package. Lorena sent hers the same day and some for some reason, I thought I sent a mass reply... oops.

  6. This is so cute! I love it! You will have so much fun with this project, please be sure to post the final dolly!

  7. Thank you so much for your lovely comments, I will look forward to seeing the end result! Love your blog!
    Best wishes
