A One Of A Kind Ensemble
for 12" Bethany Kish
(or any of the other comparably sized Kish dolls)

by pj

'Tis Better to Give. . .

. . . . Than receive!  Well, at least that is what Bethany & Jo's Mom has  told them! 

Bethany is not quite sure about that yet. . .but she DID have lots of fun helping choose and wrap all the gifts for the family!!  And she can't WAIT to see everyone open their presents  . . . so just maybe Mom IS right!!   But then again. . . .receiving gifts is SO much fun!

What is also fun, is that this year Bethany and Jo are in charge of taking the presents  to Grandmom's house, WAYYY down the street (that would be 2 doors away. . . ) 

Bethany's sled is piled high with gifts. . . and more gifts!  Glorious, gaily wrapped, colorful gifts!!

. . . .and HMMMMM, it looks like that is a cute Teddy is sitting atop the pile!
I wonder what lucky person will receive HIM for a gift??
"Maybe MEEEE???"  Bethany wonders?? 

We'll see, we'll see!!


Jumper Style Dress
. . . . Bethany is wearing a festive Christmas jumper that has the look of a two piece set. It is comprised of a red wool felt bodice and a pleated skirt in a festive holiday hued plaid flannel, with shots of gold thread throughout.   The bodice is styled with fabric covered lapels and small bead buttons at the faux closure and the skirt features knife pleats all around.  The bodice features a delightful spray of holiday foliage. . . holly & pine, rendered in a combination of applique and embroidery, and embellished w/ beads.  A small functional pocket adorns the opposite side of the bodice.  The dress has back snap closures  that are covered with gold bead "buttons".

Knit Turtleneck Bodysuit
. . . . Beneath her jumper, Bethany wears a crisp white knit bodysuit with a cozy turtle neck collar.  The beautifully hand embroidered sprig of pine and holly on the collar coordinates perfectly with her dress,  and Bethany's fringed plaid cuffs add a touch of whimsy.  The bodysuit has a back placket closure for a professional finish.

Matching Beret ~ Hair Tie
. . . . A red wool felt beret, trimmed with a band of plaid flannel and accented with a festive ribbon, fabric and bell decorated bow,  is the finishing touch. . . .setting off  Bethany's adorable blonde bob.
A matching green twill hair tie is also included for those more casual  times.

Flannel Wrap
. . . . A simple fringed wrap made of plaid flannel to match her skirt is the perfect accessory to keep out the chill, as Bethany makes her way down the street to Grandmom's house.  .

Handpainted Boots ~ Socks
. . . . Keeping Bethany's toes stylishly warm are striped knee socks and a pair of white boots painted with sprigs of holly and pine to match her dress. 

Bethany's Gift Laden Sled!
. . . .An adorable wooden sled (made by Boyd's Bears) is fully loaded with brightly wrapped gifts for Bethany's family!  And  I wonder whose Mohair Teddy THAT is atop the pile??

. . . . Boy, that sled DOES look hard to pull. . . , piled high with all those presents! 
And who is that Bethany has tucked under her arm?? 

Why. . . . it looks like Teddy WAS for Bethany. . and what a sweet pair they make!


Here is Bethany with her sister Jo,  ready to make the LONG walk (a few doors down...) to Grandmom's house!  My, they are laden down with gifts, aren't they??  Jo's outfit is available in another auction.
