Annabelle Celebrates Tasha Tudor's 100th birthday!

I haven't posted for a while, as I have been working on a many new projects. Annabelle got a new skirt, which she is wearing today in this post. There are two posts on the blog today, so be sure to read them both. 

Annabelle is celebrating Tasha Tudor's birthday ~ if she were alive, she would have turned 100 years old! She was a famous author and illustrator of such books as A is for Annabelle, Pumpkin Moonshine, Corgiville Fair, and illustrate many books such as Rumor Godden's The Dolls' House and The Little Princess and The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgeson Burnett.  She was also a great animal and bird lover, so today Annabelle is gathering up her sketchbook and binoculars and basket and preparing to go outside birdwatching. 

I found her skirt on ebay and have had the basket for a while now. Her little binoculars were a charm that came with the little globe from hobby Lobby, I will probably put them on a chain so they can hang on her neck. This skirt will look cute at Christmas with a red shawl and some red shoes, and a snood at Christmas time. Perhaps a pinafore for Christmas baking too. Hopefully her wig will arrive soon, and I will have some more pics up.

You changed your blog layout! I thought I was in the wrong place at first. It looks very nice as does your dio!

Your skirt drapes so nicely on her.
