A hidden gem on eBay! :D

I have always wanted some crocheted pieces for my doll clothes collection. Up until today, I had not one piece of hand crocheted doll clothing. I have been searching for months, because I have certain criteria the pieces need to meet.

1. Not too bulky.

2. Versatile.

3. Stylish.

4. Affordable!!

Now do you see why it took me so long to find the new addition? Well actually, additions, because I ordered several other pieces from her after I fell in love with the dress that came today. 

You can find her blog here: The Creative Bookworm
And her eBay store here: Joan's Emporium
She is a lovely individual and you should definitely check out the above sites!  

The dress in the pictures below came with the red shoes and a cute red hanger all for $3.30 SHIPPED! :D  The belt and other accessories were things I already had or made.

My model is my Cali girl Lea re-root that now bares the name "Ava"....

Thank you for reading and following me!
