Introducing "Eyes of Texas" Dolls

Brenda, Owner of Beacon's Glow Collectibles, has been at it again.  Her latest endeavor is creating her "Eyes of Texas" Dolls hand-poured and hand-finished with the world-famous Dianna Effner doll molds.

She finds that she thoroughly enjoys paining the dolls eyes and this is truly what makes them unique and truly a collectible.

Each doll stands approximately 12 inches tall and each wears a hand-sewn sleeveless dress and pair of panties.

Every doll comes with pierced earrings (attached), pair of woven socks, white Mary Jane shoes, and a tiny brown plush teddy bear.  (Can you determine the brand of the teddy bear?)

Brenda will continue to fine tune her sewing skills and proceed with more complicated dresses and outfits for the dolls.

Please stay tuned!

Another Hats 4 Hope Donation

A shipment of our quarterly goal of 25 preemie baby hats are headed on their way to the Hats 4 Hope organization.  This puts our total number of hand-crocheted hats donated at 125 and counting.  (We plan on donating at least 100 hats per year as a goal).

For those of you who have donated monies during checkout, thank you!  Your money has all gone towards the purchase of yarn to crochet these little hats.

It is great that MSNBC's heartwarming "Making a Difference" series has still kept Suzy's (founder of Hats 4 Hope) news spotlight online.

Thanks again for your continued support!
