The SNOW BALL! 
***********
Believe it or not, it is already February. . . and this week marks the midpoint of the winter season! 

As has been the tradition for many years, the SNOW BALL, a celebration of winter, is taking place this weekend.  This fun party, for townsfolk, both young and old, is the most fancy. . .  and anticipated event of the season!  
  
. . . . And with any luck, maybe it will actually SNOW! 
The air is crisp and the sky is grey. . . and I just MAY see a few flakes drifting our way!

Mommy is ready for all eventualities tho, and her very newest little "townsfolk",  Baby Ellery, has a cozy, yet

OH SNOW ELEGANT

 outfit all ready for the occassion! 

Baby soft angora, delicate embroidery, and oh so many tiny "pearls" make our adorable little baby SURE to be the belle of this year's ball!

"Soft as Snow" Handknit Angora Dress
************
Ellery is wearing a "soft as snow" (or maybe even as soft as our little baby's skin.) . . . . handknit dress made with fine angora in a subtle winter white. 
~~~ 
The dress is styled with a high neck that fits just under Ellery's little chin, and a full skirt billows out from the yoke styled bodice. 
~~~
A delicately hand embroidered circlet of roses graces the bodice, and tiny, off white pearl beads are inset around the empire styled waist. 
~~~
Vintage cream colored satin ribbon is woven thru openings knit into the edge of the skirt, and tiny tiny bullion knot roses are embroidered all along the length of the ribbon, 
~~~
Embellishing the sleeves of the dress at the wrists is the very same ribbon, embroidered with  tiny roses and accented with small pearl beads.
~~~
The back opening is secured with tiny hidden snaps and row of pearl beads. . .  and a bow adds an additional touch of interest.







Knit Bonnet
************
Ellery's sweet face is framed beautifully with an dainty bonnet, knit is a pattern to echo the design of her dress.  
~~~
 Again, hand embroidered satin ribbon is woven thru the bonnet,, and is tired in a bow off to the side..   A row of pearl beads are inset in the edge of the bonnet, and frame Ellery's sweet face to perfection.  

Knit Booties & Panties & Tiny Headband
************

When Mommy removes Ellery's cozy leggings for the party, she will dress her in a tiny pair of angora panties and a matching pair of white angora booties!   We didn't want to completely miss Ellery's cute little rosey dimpled knees, did we??  Her cozy bonnet is replaced by a tiny angora headband, trimmed with pearls.


 





Handknit Receiving Blanket
************
Of course, Ellery is not to be without her soft angora blanket on this trip!  The winter white angora knit blanket is trimmed with satin ribbon that echoes the embroidered ribbons of her dress. 
Tiny satin bows grace each corner.

Ellery's Toys & Needle Felted Teddy!
************

And of course, Ellery MUST have her favorite toys!  What is a party without toys????   Her pearl rattle, and a pretty beaded play toy are the perfect companions for such an elegant ball!
~~~ 
And don't forget Belle the teddy,  Ellery's sweet needle felted teddy bear, so named because she has a special surprise. . .a tiny little jingle bell in her tummy!  


 


I wonder how Ellery's teddy, Belle, feels about being used as a PILLOW???
***********

Ellery, our little  OH SNOW ELEGANT  baby. . . with her full array of toys,   . . . looks to be holding court at the Snow Ball! 

She most definitely IS the Belle of this ball, don't you agree?!
