January 17th. Great news! The plaid fabric for the Snow Bird fashion set has arrived. YAY!! ________________________________________

January 15, 2019. Good morning everyone! Just wanted to give you the latest update. I'm currently working on all the waiting list orders.  Hoping the plaid fabric used in the Snow Bird set arrives from Scotland any day now. As for new fashion release! No surprises this week but I'll keep you posted! Have a fun week! Chat more soon! Love, Janet


January 4th, 2019: Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a fun holiday season!

My family & I enjoyed every moment!

I'm back at work sewing away. It's going to take me 3 to 4 weeks to complete all the fashions on the waiting lists. I'm hoping to begin shipping some out beginning on Monday and will continue until all the fashion orders from the holiday are completed.

What's next you might asked? Hum... LOL!

Until next time! Have fun! Stay safe!

Love always, Janet   xxxx

PS. I had to order more of the plaid (Stewart Dress Tartan) fabric from Scotland to make the pants for the Snow Bird set.  I currently have enough fabric to make at least 15 sets.  I'll keep you posted!

PS. Forgot to mention I got my computer back for the repair shop and she up and running like a charm again. Thank goodness! But then my IPhone broke so to the repair shop she went. Just got her back too! I think it's safe to say all is great at the moment!


December 31th, 2018: Cheers to the coming New Year! May it bring you peace, prosperity, good health, love & happiness!

See you next year! Lots of love, Janet xoxoxo


 Good evening! Happy Saturday! I'm going to try and release the 2 new holiday fashions tomorrow, Sunday 12/16/2018 at 3PM central time at the Fashion Avenue Boutique page. My PC is still down and has to take a trip to the PC doctor on Monday. I'm going to launch in from Joey's laptop. Hope all goes well! See you soon! Thanks again! :)


Update Dec. 13th. 10PM. Hello again my friends! I have been able to make some changes using Joey's laptop however there's a lot more tech stuff that has to be done before I can release the show.

I'll work on the website and see if I can correct the problem. If I can get it fixed I'll reschedule the show for tomorrow morning. I'll send another newsletter out late tonight.

Thank you all for your patience atience'spatiand understanding. 


Cancelled show!!! Reschedule at a later time when all is working properly. I will send at a newsletter when all fixed. Thank you! Sorry everyone. I can not property open the show! Not even sure if you can get this message. I will continue to work on it.


Dec. 13th! Happy Thursday! Well, I'm running a little behind today. My computer went to sleep last night and refuses to wake up. Just dug out Mike's old laptop and praying I'm able to get everything working on this before today's show. 

Also I want to let you know that the "Holiday Shopper" fashion has changed names.

Here's my 1st Christmas Collection 2003.

Holiday Collection 2003.



11/21/2018:  Happy Thanksgiving Eve !

Just dropping in to wish everyone a fabulous & beautiful Thanksgiving Holiday!

I am so grateful & thankful to you all my doll friends. You are all family to me. Without you there could be no me.  Dolls have been my passion for my entire life and when my mom taught me to sew, she opened up a whole new world of possibilities. Linking both my passion for dolls and my passion for fashions what more could a girl like me asked for?  

On this Thanksgiving Day, I want to take this moment to thank each of you for continuing to support my creations and keeping my dream alive. I am so blessed to be a small part of your lives. Thank you for always filling my heart with laughter & love! Thank you for all the smiles and yes even some tears.

You are the best!  

May your days be filled with sunshine, smiles, fun & love!

Happy Thanksgiving my friends! Love always, Janet xoxo


***Breaking News! Friday, November 23rd at 3pm Central time I will be adding two new fashion sets to the "Unexpected Fashion Sales" page. This is not the official Christmas Collection. I will release that some time next month. This is a unannounced collection in which I have decided to call the "Holiday Desserts Collection." Pistachio 'n Buttercream Fluff & Green Apple Sorbet! Just the names alone should give you a hint of the color schemes being used! It is a fabulous collection and it does have hints of the Christmas holiday too!

I hope to have a photo posted tomorrow.

Have fun & enjoy your holiday! Love, Janet xoxo

More info coming soon! Love, Janet xoxo


Friday, October 5th, 2018. The Dawn convention, “Meet me in St. Louis,” was awesome!! We all had a blast!! It was fabulous!! Meeting new & reconnecting with other friends was my most treasure moments!!! I didn't want it to end!! The drive to St. Louis and back was wonderful too! St. Louis was awesome and Mike & I enjoyed the day we spent in St. Charles too!! Mike made friends with other Dawn collector’s husbands, and he's all in for next year’s too!! YAY!!

The Dawn Convention Doll was breathtaking. She’s to die for!! The convention mini and all other doll goodies were totally fabulous! The items that were donated by other collectors were all cherished items. The contests, party games, raffles, and foods were all so very exciting!! At the “Meet & Greet” you were able to purchase dolls, fashions, & other cool things for your dolls! The attendees also received a charm bracelet with 20 charms identifying each year’s convention. Cool! If you’ve never been to a Dawn Convention try to attend at least one!   However, they can certainly be very addicting!

A special “thank you & a round of applause to the Hostess, Trish Freeland, her mama Rosemary (chief hostess assistant, and cheerleader) for this year’s convention, all of the team players that make these conventions possible.  Without their love, hard work, dedication, benefactors, creators, advisors, coordinators, the convention could not be possible. It’s just amazing to see how everyone pulls together to make an endless weekend of pure fun & laughter.  Thank you all!


***On a fashion note! I have finally finished waiting list orders, and emails will be sent over the next day or two. I will also be adding to the inventory some extra fashions & jewelry from previous releases. You will be able to find them in the “Unexpected Fashion Sales,” page some time over this weekend.

Have a great Friday & a fun weekend!! Lots of love, Janet xoxo

December 29th. 2017. 

Wishing you a New Year filled with new Hope, new Joy & new Beginnings.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Latest Updates:

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. I’ve been on the constant go, (like many of you) ever since the release of our holiday fashion collection.

Cleaning, decorating, baking, getting ready for the holiday rush before my family & friends arrived from out of town and out of state.  I’ve had a house full of 10 over the past week +. It’s been very exhausting. I think it’ll take days to recover. HA!

This is my first day back. Please accept my apologies for not making it back sooner. I’m so behind on emails, cards & thank you messages.

I haven’t started on any fashions since the holiday fashion show. My arthritis in my hands had gotten really bad during the last fashion production. I thought they would heal during the Christmas break, but they haven’t. I’m waiting on a pair of arthritis relieve gloves to come in soon, and a doctor appointment on the 8th. I hope we can work something out fast!

Since I was only able to send out a few Christmas cards manually this year, I have been working with an email service called “Constant Contact” today in hopes of getting some colorful email messages sent to you. Hopefully they will come through later today.

I wish you all a beautiful & blessed New Year!

See you next year!

Love, Janet

Dad, is being strong, however the cancer is rapidly taking him from us. We are a strong family when taking care of one another, but when the mist of darkness takes over we become weak. I asked him what kind of cake he wanted for Father's Day, he said, New York, cheesecake. So like a good daughter, (presto-just a click away), a cheesecake was ordered from NY. As is stands we will celebrate Father’s Day this Friday.

Wishing you a wonderful week! And don’t forget to make “Father’s Day” special for all the dads in your life! Much love & lots of hugs, Janet

PS. No new fashion releases at this time. However there is some beauties coming! HA!

I'll keep you posted right here! Have a great week! Love, Janet xxx

PS. My dad is holding strong. His brother Al & his nephew (Vincent) were visiting from San Diego this past weekend. And, once again, my sister Michele was here for the weekend too! (Don't know what I'd do without her.)

We all had a wonderful visit & the weather was perfect. Now to start planning for Father's Day which is 14 days away! HA! xoxo  


5/17/2017.  Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone had a great weekend & Moms had a great Mother’s Day!


Dad had a wonderful 80th birthday!  We all enjoyed the day! Philly cheese steaks & New York cheese cakes were a HUGH hit!

Daniel flew in from Vermont & gave his Mom a Dawn Dance Party stage featuring Kevin (who is in excellent condition.) He also brought me Tonner Betty Davis doll. Her clothing was breathtaking, with exquisite details. I was in awe!  Grandsons brought beautiful flowers & handmade Crayola cards! I cooked for them a big pasta dinner and feed them big chocolate fudge brownies, with a slice of cheese cake & strawberries.

Doll news! Currently there are no new fashions to be released. I will keep you posted! I have more Let’s Pretend gowns to release to those on the waiting list. If I have any extra sets left I’ll add them to the website.

Wishing everyone a super great day & week! Lots of love, Janet

5/10/2017:No new fashions to be released. 

5/4/2017: Let's Pretend was released.

5/3/2017. Happy May! Wow, the months are just peeling away here! I sure wished they'd slow down a little! We didn't get caught up in those nasty tornadoes in West Texas last week. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those most affected by them.

Dad is doing as well as he can. Although the time is becoming direr as the days go by. He wants to see his 80th birthday, which will be next Friday the 12th. He wanted a New York cheesecake for his birthday cake. So I was able to order a couple from Junior's out of Brooklyn, New York. Junior's has been around since 1950. And, since we are all originally from Philadelphia, Pa, We are having a Taste of Philly with their original Philly cheese steaks. HA! I'll also be doing a little taste of Italy too, since we all are a bunch of crazy Italians here too!  Daniels (my oldest) son will be flying in from Vermont. He has been traveling back & forth from there to Texas, along with my sister Michele who is in Oklahoma.

I was hoping to get more fashions into our spring collection but a mixture of things makes it nearly impossible. I do have something beautiful to add to our collection. Release date, unknown! Maybe tomorrow! I'll know more later on, once I make the finally decision. And please don't worry if you miss out on this set. I can make more, I have enough supplies to make around 12 to 15 more.

Have a great day!!  Much love, Janet

2/26/2017. Happy Sunday! Sorry I've been away for a little while. My Dad who was diagnosed 2 1/2 years ago with stage 4 cancer was taken off of chemo and told there was nothing more they could do for him. It's been rough this past week just wrapping our heads around it all and it will continue through the days, weeks & months to come. Lots of family coming & going! This doesn't mean I'll stop sewing.

As for now, I'm still trying to finish all the holiday fashion orders. I have 8 Christmas Classic gowns ready to ship, and I have 12 more in the sewing stages. I still have another 9 more Holiday Gathering dress sets to make, but I think I only have supplies to make 8 more. We shall see! Hang in there with me! When I have something new to offer I will post updates here.

Have a beautiful & blessed & fun week! Lots of love, Janet xxxooo
