Summer is in full swing here with blazing hot days. Shade trees, porch swings and cold lemonade are appreciated all day long as we toil away, dreaming of escaping to nearby mountains, lakes or beaches.
The Garden Party Girl dolls stay happy in the heat by donning pretty decorated straw hats that offer shade wherever they go. These hats are so festive, they are practically an invitation to start a party!
See all four decorated straw doll hats in detail in my Etsy shop:
The hat's floral focal points can be positioned in any direction to add drama to your doll. The ribbons and flowers are hand sewn to the straw hat for lasting charm.
Wearing pretty hats, Angela and Jemma are taking a lemonade break in the garden with a good book. They are reading The Japanese Lover, a NY Times bestseller by Isabel Allende and a great vacation read.
It is the story of a forbidden love between a young Polish girl and a Japanese gardener, who are torn apart by war and social conventions yet keep their love alive in secret through the decades. A lushly written and beautifully told tale of survival, loss and redemption.
