my creative space

There's a lot that appeals about the Amish way of life.

The approach to self-reliance.

The plain style of dress.

Simple crafting from scraps.

The pure simplicity.

Even their preference for birthing at home...

The Little One has become attached to this Amish Doll,
which she found at her Nanny's house this week.

She's lovely, don't you think?

Now I'm attempting to make one too,
for a certain little cousin who turns one next month.

See what's happening in other creative spaces over here.

  1. Ah, I live very close to "Amish country" and have seen a lot of those dolls, even in my own home growing up! They're sweet, aren't they?

  2. I'll look forward to seeing your interpretation of the Amish doll.

  3. ah, what a sweet thing to make. I like the simple life too but the fundamentalism of thier religion might just stop me day dreaming too much about thier exact method of living ;O)

  4. a decluttered life is a dream of mine. keen to see your doll

  5. so much beauty in simplicity. I've tagged you by the way...come over to mine and see... x

  6. Just wanted to say I am really enjoying your blog, such a lovely place to visit. It has such a refreshing air about it.

  7. That would be a great recreate. It's so sweet.

  8. What a gorgeous doll!! I love the Amish people and their way of life!! Of course, I have only read about them and seen films about their way of life. I hope I'm not wrong!!!

  9. Yep to all of the Amish way of life appeal. The doll is beautiful and can be anything a kid wants/needs her to be.

  10. the doll is gorgeous ... so simple but wonderful too. will yours be exactly the same or will you add a little something extra to the mix?
