Decorating Eggs and Choosing an Easter Hat!


Bridget decorated the naturally blue egg with the lovely pansy cut-out, gold trim and a ribbon.

Tasha Tudor decorated Easter eggs in much the same fashion and some are featured in
"Drawn from New England" and
illustrated in "A Time to Keep".


 Bridget, an Izannah Walker inspired doll, was made by talented dollmaker Margaret Flavin.
The apron Bridget is wearing was found in one of our favorite antique shops.


Izzibeth insisted upon wearing the red straw hat with flowers that was found at the same shop as Bridget's apron.
She holds a little basket with a chick nestled in the straw.

Izzibeth, an Izannah Walker inspired doll, was made by talented dollmaker Paula Walton.

Oh Cousins, I have missed much! The ladies are sporting lovely bonnets and Izzibeths dress is perfection for a cheerful spring day. I have a weakness for straw hats and must confess a bit of hat envy for the red one. Cousin Jeri
