And one more birthday photo...

Isn't this sweet? It's a birthday banner for Bleuette's birthday today.
It's from the AADC Bleuette Yahoo site.
Just click on the link if you'd like to join.
It's FUN to be in as many groups as possible!
Love from Yvette Marie & Zoe & Helena xoxo

Another birthday photo

This is Lauren H J Sinclair, an antique Bleuette Premier doll.
She is owned by Donna N, who took this lovely photo and kindly gave her permission to post it here on this most neglected blog. I would love to own a Premier some day!

Bleuette's 109th birthday!

Bleuette has a birthday on February 2nd.
The original Bleuette turns 109!
So here we are celebrating in our newly wall papered Bleu Manoir.
We had a big flood in our home in August.
Maman's AC unit leaked all over the window seat and slowly crept up our walls.
Maman didn't notice it for a while.
She papered our walls yesterday and we celebrated our birthday today with tea and cake and ice cream. Zoe got a new dolly and we all got a musical carousel toy to play with.
We are so happy to have a home again!
Love from Yvette Marie xoxoxoxo

Our Halloween Party

Anita is wearing a very pretty dress and apron which Maman bought at a doll show in Puyallup. None of us got to go with on the trip. But Madeline went in Tante Linda's suitcase. Our maman is quite addled these days. But yesterday was a Fun Day as we got to play again.

Here is Maman's Halloween tea table. We all love the orange, black and yellow decorations for Halloween. Tante Linda brought the brownies with orange icing and the ghost cookies, and Maman bought shortbread cookies and chocolate mint. It all looked very delicious.
Tante Leona gave the beautiful orange flowers in the middle.
We also love black cats!

Here is our Maman in the orange sweater.
Tante Linda is the other human here.
And the animal in the middle is Kelsie, our dog.

Pointe Claire Academy!

Here I am, Yvette Marie, at Pointe Claire Academy day class.
This is the BSC challenge for October 2013.
Maman is so behind in things due to family emergencies that I got in just in time!
I helped Maman make my apron. 
The class I chose to take is Victorian History.
Maman bought these lovely pictures at an antique show in the spring.
They are from cigarette boxes!
The pictures show Queen Victoria and her family.

My best friend Madeline came for the day class session.
Her apron has red stitching. Mine has orange. She is even wearing her whistle!
I don't know where mine went.

Here we are showing our aprons. Maman cut up Papa's old shirt.
It was very old but this piece made a nice apron.
After our history class we had a Halloween party.

Some pretty 1920 hats!

Tante Marie shared this page from Sears Roebuck and Co from the 1920s Catalogue.
We love all the hats! We love hats. Maman isn't sure how to make these ones.
I wonder why little girls don't wear hats anymore?
They would sure be nice to wear to church!

A very pretty hankie dress.

Oh just look at this bee-ooo-ti-ful dress!
It is made by Tante Marie S.
She sews very neatly and quickly.
We all just love this dress which used to be a hankie.
This is Violet.
