Izannah Walker 197th Birthday!

Izzibeth Heads Off to Birthday Party!
Izzibeth, her pink frock and sunbonnet were made
by talented dollmaker Paula Walton.

September 25th was Izannah Walker's birthday!

Izannah Walker (1817-1888) lived in New England and made dolls using a special technique.

Paula Walton is holding a Birthday Celebration in honor of Izannah Walker.

When Izzibeth heard about the Celebration she wanted to head off to the party!

Paula has featured "The American Girl's Book" on her blog, showing different games that the Izannahs will play during the celebration. The Izannahs and the Hittys here at Corgyncombe also own an old copy of this most delightful book!

Paula's Izannahs have made some tasty treats to enjoy at their picnic Celebration!  Izzibeth is getting hungry!

Dearest Izzibeth,
Wasn't that the most wonderful celebration? And Andrew was so well behaved among all the chattery girls!
Sending you hugs from across the way,
Love and Blessings, Betany Bountiful

Hi Diane and Sarah!

I've been reading your lovely blog for a while but I didn't know how to post comments until today! I am delighted that I finally know how to do it! :-) I don't have a blog of my own, and I thought it was necessary to have one to be able to post a comment. Perhaps I will get one in the future :-) I'll let you know if I do.

Please let me introduce myself.
My name is Agnes. I'm in my twenties and lives in Sweden. I came across your blog when searching for Tasha Tudor-related photos on Google. I am very inspired by her and Beatrix Potter, country life, books, art, animals, history - so we seem to have a lot in common! :-) I am very glad to finally write to you!

Allt the best,
Agnes
