A lot of you may have followed Vanessa Morrison of the blog Van's Doll Treasures.Vanessa was a cancer survivor, but had been having more problems. Her last post was last August. I had been very worried about her. Sadly, last week I found out that Vanessa passed away in October of last year. Many of you may already know this, but in case there are some of you who hadn't heard, I though I would pass on the news.
I never met Vanessa. We had only 'talked' through the 'comments' on our respective blogs. Still, I felt she was a part of my life, part of my internet 'crowd'. Vanessa's blog was one of the very first couple of blogs I followed. Her blog inspired me to start my own.
Vanessa was a talented lady. She made dioramas.designed and sewed doll clothes,made beautiful 1/6 scale furniture. At one point, determined to keep going, keep educating herself and adding to her range of talents, Vanessa took up woodworking and taught herself to cook. She seemed to be full of life and endlessly interested in making more of her life. How sad that we have lost her.
