On the way in through the food court, we met Isabelle, Saige, Molly and Grace actresses!

*Reader Photos* WINNER - Amelia, Your Victorian Girl

Amber, winner of the Amelia doll giveaway contest sponsored by A Girl for All Time, sent in beautiful photos just as Amelia arrived.

Hi Rhonda,
Thanks so much for the opportunity to win Amelia, A Girl for All Time doll. She arrived safely. Even though Ava, my 2 year old, claimed her because she looks like Rapunzel. I'm not allowed to touch her hair! I guess I'm sharing. Thanks so much for hosting the giveaway and thanks to A Girl for All Time for making such wonderful dolls. 

Creating Amelia's Victorian Parlor - TOUR

Amelia's story takes place in several different rooms and living quarters, however the place where she settles down isn't described in much detail. That gave me freedom to make my own living space for her. I chose a quaint parlor, nothing fancy, but Victorian nonetheless. 

I found this sturdy doll closet and it is perfect for Amelia.

 I didn't like the natural wood and painted it a deep brown. 

Amelia shows us the closet interior. There's a place for hanging clothes and a small mirror on the door.

 Miss Lovington is perched next to her mirror. The hat box holds her tights, stage headband and party hat.

Her tea chest stores nicely under the settee.

You've just arrived in time for tea!

I downloaded the available portraits of Amelia's parents from A Girl for All Time, then framed them.

Won't you sit a while and enjoy a vanilla tea cake?
