The other amazing gift I got was a hand-made doll from my good friend Angie. Angie is very passionate and focused about making dolls and it shows in her work. She does needle-felt dolls, wooden carved dolls, embroidered dolls and many more. She knows I have a Jewish grandma Clare (who I died before I was born and I am named after) so I love my babushka, I call her Bubba. She is cross between my Jewish grandmother and little red riding hood. What I think is really amazing about her is her embroidered eyes. It shows just how talented Angie's is. Thank you Angie and am thrilled to finally own one of your dolls xoxoxo

PS. I just made the raspberry meringue trifle and the pastry cream did not thicken. So I had ti adjust the recipe. I just wanted ot let you know I fixed the post below with the recipe !!!

BEAUTIFUL! I love the old world look she has. Stunning gift!!



Babushka's outfit is just what we all need here in frosty old England at the moment Clarice. Isn't she lovely. And I adore your thatched cottage collection. If Babushka could shrink she would make the perfect Red Ridig Hood and could live in one of them for sure. Wishing you and your lovey family much happness in the coming year. Love Eli.

When this picture loaded onto my screen--even before I read a single word about it--I knew it was an Angie doll : )

Oh Clarice...I've not visited for a while and what I have missed! All these ideas are sooooo clever and cute! I LOVE this doll, and the close up of the face shows amazing care and craftsmanship. I also love your recipes (wow, the merangue (sp?) trifle looks dangerously delicious...and the recipe napkins and buckle/ribbon napkin holders are so darling. You are amazing!! More soon my friend. Thank you so much for this inspiring blog.
P.S. I just noticed the facebook thing...I am so new at this I don't really know how to use it yet, but Rosie said she'd show me how :) pretty soon :)


Love her! Rachaelxo Happy New Year!
