We've Got a Visitor!

Hello, Dear Ones! Oh, I must tell you ~ I received a package a little over two weeks ago from my sweet friend, Darlene at Darlene's Days!
There was the prettiest card with a bird on the front...
...and then there was Stella! Stella is our Blogland paperdoll, well Aida cloth paperdoll who is traveling all over to different bloggers and will return to her home in England again in December. She was all snuggled down in her little bed so she could travel in comfort!
Oh, she was just all smiles! Every time she leaves a fellow blogger's home, something is put on her outfit! She has a red star, blue buttons down the front of her dress, a very beautiful crocheted purse with pearl button, a party hat, a Snoopy sticker, a crab, a bunny button, an Oklahoma pin, and boots. When she leaves my house, I'll have to think of something to add to her dress!
Isn't she just the cutest little thing? She has lovely long locks and the sweetest little smile.
She was bearing gifts from Darlene! Oh, I just love gifts, don't you?
Look at this most precious little bunny card. I do believe Darlene must have made this.
Oh, and a scoop with a rooster on it! I love it!
See how darling! Thank you so much Darlene for the sweet gifts!
Then she sent lovely dog biscuits for Chloe Dawn. I really had to keep Mr. Precious out of these because he thought they were for him to eat ~ dipped in white chocolate with sprinkles. I should have let him have a bite, don't you think? :)
Chloe loved these little biscuits!
Smells so good!
Okay, she says, num a num a num!! Chloe Dawn thanks you, too, Darlene!
I told the little neighborhood girls Stella was coming and they immediately said, "We'll have a tea party for her!" And that's just what they did! How lovely. Stella was so glad to be in Galveston!

Now Dear Ones, please come back tomorrow because I really have a story to tell you! Oh, my goodness! You're just not going to believe it!

Until then...
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

  6. Since I am new to blogging I had no idea there was a cute little Stella traveling the world. What an adorable idea. I love how everyone is decorating her dress. Have fun with Stella and your new gifts and I will be back tomorrow to see what else you are sharing with all of us. I love your blog as it always makes me SMILE!

    Glad you liked the little gifts and that Chloe Dawn liked her treats. My poodles love the treats from that dog store.

  8. I love seeing that little purse on her. But then of course I would since I made it, haahaa. My Helmi is still wearing the one I made for her too. They both enjoyed sporting matching purses when Stella was visiting me. I can't wait to find out about your story tomorrow. You have me waiting on pins and needles. Oh, ouch! I guess I better get off of those. I'll wait on a chair instead. Oh, no, I will be at work. Guess I'll just stay busy while I wait. Have fun with Stella!

  15. Oh lucky you to have Stella visiting! I have been following her adventures ever since she was visiting Linnea. Hmmm, I'm thinking she would like to visit Ohio (and me) after this? What do you think? lol

    I am sure you will have so much fun with her. Stella is quite the adventuress!

    Can't wait to read your next post and see what is going on!

  18. Hi Sheila
    It was great to see Stella visiting with you and enjoying tea in Texas. She looks very happy to be there and I look forward to seeing more of her adventures. She is glad to be away from rainy England and I am sure she will not want to come back in December! I loved the gifts Darlene sent you and sweet Chloe Dawn. I am excited about your news and will be back tomorrow.

  20. Know what I am led to believe when I see all these pretties?

    The heart is not judged by how much it loves but by how much it is loved by others...

    You are dearly loved. Beautiful!

  32. Shelia,

    How lucky for you to have Stella delivered to you! She is a doll!!! This sort of reminds me of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. What a cool idea. Knowing the seamstress that you are, Stella will be leaving your home in style!!

    I like your gifts too. Simple and sweet. :-D
