American Girls

My daughter and I have discovered the American Girl book series. I'm in love!

We began with Samantha from 1904. We're enjoying learning about life during the Victorian era.

The final chapter of each book is entitled A Peek Into the Past. It's a
history lesson. So we're getting a double blessing. Fun reading that we can count for school!

I've gone a little EBay crazy with American Girl merchandise. Kaity doesn't care for dolls. That will same me a mint. But I did win a few out of print American Girl cookbooks and craft books. I also won a silver Samantha charm to put on a necklace for Kaity.

This is my favorite purchase. It's a Samantha book end. We'll use it on the bookcase to hold up all the books we'll be getting.

Just what I needed ~ a new obsession.

eBay is a great resource for American girl items. It is a phase for so many. Gracie loved Samantha too. She has one of the American Girls of Today dolls--a communion gift from my mom. AG online has some nice sales too.

sorry to read about the twist. I know you can steek on solid knitting but not on a lace shawl. :(
