Weekend Recap and the Contest

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day I know I really did Brinsley made me breakfast (it was cereal but its the thought that counts). The only thing I missed was the cute little things they make at school for you this is the first year in a long time I did not get anything like that. We spend the day with my family at the lake and I forgot to take any pictures but it was fun.

This weekend we got the garden started I am so happy. I go out there everyday just to see how everything is going. If you are wondering what all the little sticks are for that is to keep Caleigh from using it as a litter box its working so far.

Now I have to tell you I am totally addicted to making these dolls I love them I am trying to get
 together enough stuff to do a craft show this June and these babies will be there for sure!


Now for the Contest! Name my Dollhouse the winner will be picked next Friday! Just leave a comment with what you think would be a perfect name for this great  little house and with the help of my family we will pick the winner. The winner will receive a great prize I am still working on but I know it will include a doll made just for you!

I hope everyone has a great day I am off to check on the garden hehe!

I love getting the school gifts too and will miss it when I no longer receive them. This year Chandler had made me a card that had a butterfly on the front and inside he said "I love you mom because you help me with homework and you make the best pizza!" LOL I always find it funny when they throw in random things :o)

Your garden looks great! I tried to do a garden once and it wasn't very successful.

As for the dollhouse here is my name suggestion

Cotton Candy Cottage


Your dolls are so adorable!

Aw so pretty!!

Since Mommy24cs stole my first thought I'll choose "Pretty Pink Palace." Cindy

Tausha said...

I know that this is totally random name.
How about Pink Bliss.
You know how in Gone with the Wind-they have a name for the house and they refer to it as a person.
Tara-
Pink Bliss-or The Pink Dahlia
I don't even know what a Dahlia is. Is it a flower? Sweet Briar Patch.
I could just keep on going if you really want me too.
So-I am hoping that one of the 3 works. I love to win things!!

Well the first thing I thought of was The Georgia (Bulldawgs) House and the more I thought the more it reminds me of the Georgia Pink that is for the girls. You know they have frat houses so why not a sorority house.

Rue said...

I would name it Penelope's Pink Cottage... cuz she looks like a Penelope to me :)

My name for it would be........

Good luck to the winner..

Pam said...

I will miss the little gifts Coco makes me at school too. Love your garden. I'll have to think on a name for your house. Ever since we started going to Destin Fl for vaca I have wanted to name my house. All the homes around the beach have names.

Terra said...

Lauren says "Pretty in Pink"

I say Divinity

Ms. Tee said...

Those little dolls are so darlin', Carrie. :) I was going to say Primrose Cottage for some reason, but I see someone thought of that one already. So cute!

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

Hi Carrie~
Your doll house is beautiful, and I love the color you chose for it~ so sweet! And oh, those little dolls! Now, for a name idea...I am so so bad at this. All I can think of is "The Pink Lady" which is terribly unoriginal of me, as that is what they often name pink Victorians. Or maybe "Pink Victoria"? Well, I told you I was bad at this! But of course I had to give it a try as I really do adore those little dolls you make! Hope you're having a good week! :)

casey. said...

i dont have a name yet...but those dolls are precious!

Liz said...

I love your garden. That is a great idea with the sticks.

Your dolls are just so cute! I can't think of a single name for your little house. I am so bad at stuff like that!

Robyn Beele said...

Bubble Gum Mansion!

Jeni said...

My first thought was Pink Palace but then I saw someone said that so I can't think of a new one but I like the comment before me...Bubble Gum Mansion. I can't wait to see which one you do pick. The dolls are very cute.

Tina Leigh said...

I have sat here racking my pea size brain and nothing.......Pretty Pink Manor or The Pink Rose Chalet. Love your garden....what have you got planted?

Look Beyond The Picket Fence said...

I am not sure of a name, I will have to think about that. One thing for sure it is too cute for words! I love love love the dolls. I must find a little girl to make them for...she would have to be just the right age.
Have a wonderful day!

writing4612 said...

Hmm...I'll have to think about that one. I'll be back.

writing4612 said...

I meant I'll be back later with a name. I didn't want you to think that was my entry. :)

Machelle said...

This reminds me of the cottages in Helen GA.

Bubble Gum Cottage

The Little People's Palace

The Blonde Duck said...

Those dolls are precious!

Xazmin said...

I'm so jealous you have your garden in! It looks like once again I won't have one...I never seem to get it together enought to do one!

I love those little dolls! I will come back if I can think of a fabulouse name to enter into your contest!

Carrie's Little Cottage

Love the dolls!

Christina said...

I've been thinking since you posted and couldn't come up with anything. I love it though. The dolls are adorable.

Hope your garden goes well. We are still working on ours and hope to have some pictures to show eventually.

How about--Truly Scrumptious--from the movie, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Peggy said...

Those 'lil gals are cute! The Country Clothespin Chalet? You did a great job.

Ruth Ann said...

Since I'm totally in love with cupcakes...what about "Cupcake Cottage?" or "Candyland" like the game...and you can decorate with a candyland treat theme!

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

How about Moulin Rouge (as in pink cheek blush) Hee-hee!

Pronounced 'Moo-lawn', but then you probably already knew that!

April said...

How about Carrie's Playhouse (kind of like Pee Wee's Playhouse)...not REALLY! :)

April said...

I'm BAAACK...what about Carrie's Colorful Cottage?

Anonymous said...
