Amanda wears this elegant gown - a Christmas pressie from AM. For one of the big dolls - Amanda aka Lady Caroline Cumberbunch of Blackthorne Manor seems to look smashing in all she wears. Do believe she is currently in the top stop of my doll collection list.

Amanda Evert - bewitching.

Dolls at a sleep-over in The Oldest House (Laceyville)

Welcome to Laceyville's Oldest House. This is the oldest frame house in four counties : Bradford , Sullivan, Susquehanna, and Wyoming--built in 1781. The house was built by Elihu Hall for the James Smith family. The original tract of land contained 300 acres.
Built using materials from the land that was cleared for the house,the chimney came first and then the surrounding rooms creating three stories and five fireplaces. (from their website)

 Appropriate attire for the Christmas Tea.

 The dolls on display and away from home for the first time!
