Today we celebrate one of my most favorite Historical Dolls Ivy! Her birthday is February 28th. Here Ivy is at my birthday tea in Hawaii a few years ago. What a treat it was to bring her along and my mother in law bought me this handmade Hawaiian outfit for Ivy for my birthday at the Dole Plantation. We had such a lovely tea by the water and I so enjoyed having Ivy as a special guest!


This is my doll Ivy and she is so happy and excited for her birthday!! She
is wearing an outfit from Dollie &Me company! You can see more pictures of
her by following my instagram @purrfectdolls


Thank you Eva K!


Ivy is truly one of my most favorite dolls! I love taking her photo and making items for her like this blue hair extension!

Thank you to all who sent in Ivy photos and we wish her a very Happy Birthday this coming Sunday!
