Fancy Nancy!

If you have a daughter between the ages of 2 -8 years of age you must introduce her to Fancy Nancy! She is a character from a series of books created by Jane O'Connor. These books are Shelby's favorites and they are wonderful. Fancy Nancy loves all things fancy, big fancy words, speaking in French and all the bling she can wear at once. Here are the original and the second book. A third book came out this past February called Bonjour Butterfly.

Well, my Mother knows how much Shelby loves these books, so she got busy making her her own Fancy Nancy Doll. Look at this amazing crocheted doll.

She looks so much like her. From the red and fuschia hair, rhinestones, laced up ballet slippers and tutu. Let us not forget about her crown!
Sequined ballet slippers with tie up laces.

Shelby has been toting her around since she arrived. Mom did a really good job at making her tough enough for a 2 year old. Thanks Mom for all of your work and love that went into this doll for Shelby. It's wonderful!!!!

Oh that is just the greatest gift!! You surely have to get both of those items saved in a box for her someday. Just too lovely!

Oh, the doll is absolutely adorable! Love it. I really enjoy homemade gifts.
Thanks for stopping by.. and to answer your question, I can't plant flowers until Memorial Day, so spring is late May early June. Right now, we are having a "spring snow storm."
