It seems that Momma Cat has been collecting dolls her entire life! This is something that she passed on to Baby Cat too.  They've spent many hours looking for, buying, making clothes for, and even designing and creating their own dolls!

Last fall Momma Cat asked Baby Cat if she thought she was too old to get dolls for her birthday, and Baby Cat said, "You can never be too old for that!"  

After talking to Baby Cat, Momma Cat went online to the Disney Store because Baby Cat was talking about the Disney Animator Doll series.  Baby Cat really liked the Aladdin Doll. (Baby Cat's husband once dressed as Aladdin for Halloween, and Baby Cat was Jasmine)! So Momma Cat decided to surprise herMomma Cat sent Baby Cat a Baby Aladdin doll!

Doesn't she look happy?

 Now, Momma Cat is an impatient cat and just couldn't wait for her birthday in November, and she saw this doll on eBay and just had to buy her

October 20, 2015

She's an 18 inch Madame Alexander doll. These dolls aren't available in stores anymore, so if you want one, you have to go online.  Although, you can by new models on the Madame Alexander website.  I think they are a lot more attractive, and a lot more affordable than the American Girl dolls.  They can wear the same size shoes and clothes though, so there are many patterns available to choose from!   This doll is totally adorable now, but she came with a very silly hairdo, and Momma Cat thinks she needs some better clothes!  So she will be making her some!

Momma Cat liked her first doll so much she kept looking on eBay, and she saw this doll online a few weeks later, and decided to buy her for herself for her own birthday!

This is also an 18 inch Madame Alexander doll.  Momma Cat thinks she is very beautifulHer original outfit is not that interesting, so Momma Cat has been making lots of clothes for this dollShe posted one of the new outfits (crocheted Cat Suit) in her January post, but then she took it apart and completely re-crocheted it because it was extremely difficult to take on and off the doll! 

Hopefully, next time Momma Cat posts, she will have some completed outfits to show you!  Until then, enjoy some of the beautiful spring-like weather we've been having!

In Momma Cat's last post she showed you her new curtains and how nice they made her living room look!  

Well, Momma Cat and Big Sister Cat went shopping at IKEA again (a very dangerous place), and she bought some fabric that matched her curtains!  Then she took her old rocking chair cushion, and matching pillow apart and used them as patterns.  

She made a new seat cushion, new pillow cover, and re-covered the foot stool! Now everything is coordinated!

But, the down-side is Midna Cat won't sleep in the chair anymore, even though Momma Cat put a new Cat blanket in there for her!

  Guess that's just the way it goes!

Recently Momma Cat's Big Sister Cat took her and their friend Pam Cat to IKEA for a "girls shopping day".  We had loads of fun and spent hours looking around and had some delicious coffee and lunch! 

While there, Momma Cat had been eyeing some curtains that she wanted for her living room, but didn't quite have enough to buy them, so Big Sister Cat bought them for her for her birthday!!!!

She was so happy, she took them home and began working to shorten them so she could hang them up in her windows.  It took a while, but it was well worth the effort! 

See what you think.

Momma Cat was part way through taking down the lights and the curtains before she remembered to take a "before" photo of one of the front windows.

Front curtain
 This curtain was only a year or two old, but Momma Cat never really liked it.  It was just white on white. It had no pizzazz!

 This curtain is soooooooo old that Momma Cat can't even remember when she made it!  It's at least 20 years old, or more!

Front curtain
 This is what the two side curtains looked like.  They let in a lot of sun, which was nice, except in the summer when it could be a real problem!

Side curtain

The only really nice thing about these old curtains was that it was easy for our Midna Cat to look outside and see the birds!

New side window and front window curtains
 See how much nicer they look!  Now Daddy Cat is going to put up some new decorative holdbacks for the new curtains.  They have tie-backs right now, but the new fixtures will make it much easier to open and close them.  

Thank you, Thank you Big Sister, and Big Brother-In-Law Cat for the new curtains!  They make us smile every time we look at them!!
