Isn't God Amazing?

     Do you ever pause to marvel at the beautiful gifts God gives you throughout your day?  For example, I found this frost on one of our windows this morning.  It's beautiful isn't it? There are so many gifts just like this one that He gives us and often times we overlook them.  God gives us beautiful things so that our thoughts will be lifted to Him.  God loves it when we thank Him!

Have a blessed Lent everyone!

The Dolls' St. Valentines Party

   Hello! So I've finally gotten around to posting these photos ;). The girls took SO many! ( Please bare with me).


I must apologize in advance for the shadiness. My room was kinda dark. 

Lily giving everyone hugs!

Each of the girls took turns holding they're pretty rose-covered heart.

Bridget in probably one of my favorite outfits! Some of you may recognize it as "Molly's Recital Outfit", but in fact it's a recreation done by a lady I know who makes BEAUTIFUL AG doll clothes!

For some reason, I love taking pics of Bridget at this angle. 


Miss Lissie!

Felicity being dramatic!



Here's that promised photo of Abigail!

"Happy St. Valentine's Day!"

Did your doll do anything special on St. Valentine's Day?

New Blogger Award!

  Okay, so back in October, I was nominated by on of my readers (thanks Nikki :) for the "New Blogger Award".  As you can see, I have not posted this yet so I will do so now. (To be honest, I was a bit confused but I finally get it!) Anyway, here it is!

  The questions that Nikki gave me are as follows.

1. How old were you when you got you first American Girl doll?
    I got my first doll when I was 8 years old. I was so excited because I had always wanted one and she was really special because I saved up to buy her with my own money! She was a Bitty and I named her Abigail. (I'll have to get some pics of her up sometime. ;)

2. Do you like to sew for your dolls?

   Yes! I usually sew them things by hand, or I crochet them which is kind of the same thing. (Right?)

3. Why did you decide to start your blog?

  Hmmmm....Well, I really like to write and enjoy playing with my dolls, so I thought that it would be fun to write a blog and connect with other girls who like the same things as me!

4. How did you come up with your blog's name?

 Well, I combined two things that I like, cats and the beautiful flowers that God gave us to enjoy!

  Okay! Now I'll nominate these five very deserving bloggers! What they will then do is post the award on their blog, answer the questions that I gave them, and then nominate 4 to 7 more blogs to receive this award (they must have under 100 posts and have had their blog for less than a year to qualify.)They will also come up with four more questions for those bloggers to answer. I hope that all makes sense! If not, please let me know in the comments and I will attempt to explain myself more clearly! Here are the nominees!

The Dollhouse
Heart of Dixie Dolls
My AG World
Journal of Two Dolls
Small Town American Girlz

Congratulations! Here are my questions:

1. How many American Girl dolls do you own?

2. Who was the first doll that you added to your collection?

3. What made you decide to start your blog?

4. Who is your favorite doll and why? (Any doll, not just AG.)

I hope you like these questions! Congratulations!
