Baby P’s Paper Dolls.

29 Aug

Originally I had planned to just buy some vintage paper dolls for this little girl’s nursery, but we’re on a tight budget, and it was way more fun(and time consuming) to make them. So here they are. Still not sure what I’m going to do with them. I’m thinking they will become a mobil. Sorry the pictures are horrible. We don’t have a camera right now, so I had to use Justin’s phone.

This first lovely lady is one of two Italian sisters. The elegant Ms. Giovanna. Wearing a lovely gold cocktail dress.

Here she is in her poison green evening gown. The color is way off in the pic.

Her lovely winter coat ensemble. Sorry for the horrible pic!

Giovanna’s sister Marta is a bit more casual, enjoying her collection of suits, but here is her stunning emerald evening gown.

Her very put together collection of suits.

The color is way off in this one too.

These next two sisters, Sam and Rita, are the vivacious American cousins of our Italian beauties.

Sam is always looking pretty and put together, weather she is out on the town running errands, or having a few cocktails with friends.

Lovely Rita loves red!

Here she is all ready for a day at the beach!

Or a day sailing the seas.

Fashionably Mod.

Dressed and ready for a picnic in this charming red gingham piece.

Sons and Heirs!

Read this on Sunday during Breaking of Bread. God is good to us!

“Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. So then, the law was our gaurdian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith. But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a gaurdian, for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are in Christ, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.

I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no different from a slave, though he is the owner of everything, but he is under gaurdians and managers until the date set by his father. In the same way we also, when we were children, were enslaved to the elementary principles of the world. But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might  receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.”

Galatians 3:23-29, 4:1-7
