Polly Doll just returned from a fabulous week in western Ireland. Here she is having her photo taken in Connemara National Park. The view from the cairn atop Diamond Hill was awesome!
She enjoyed staying in Clifden…
with its many pubs…
and fuchsia growing along the side of the road.
Polly walked along the quay…
and crawled through a trap.
Polly met peat…
She visited a castle ruin…
and took a side trip to the island of Inishbofin.
Polly felt most at home in the moss. Her Aran knit sweater was warm and cozy in the nippy air. See how her outfit was made here. More pictures of the trip will be coming soon, including the customary doorways.

So sweet, Just love it!!!
Wished I coulda’ joined her on her Irish adventure!!
I absolutely adore her sweater and hat. Your trip looks like it was fabulous!!
Love seeing the sights with Polly. Thanks.
I loved the photos from the little Irish Lass-she is so cute in her fishermans knit sweater and heather colored wool plaid skirt. Thanks for sharing.
Such a lovely way to share your holiday. Thank you so much Salley. I have really enjoyed it.
Wonderful pictures! Polly seemed to be enjoying her holiday. Hope you did too! Welcome home.
I love Polly’s adorable sweater and hat. At first glance they appear knitted, but you cleverly embroidered on felt to mimic knitting. Delightful photos!
Awesome, you guys! Thanks for all you do to keep us in the loop of your fabulous travels!
Sally and Polly……I took a very similar trip years ago. Thank you for the memories.
Polly is always so smartly dressed. Glad you all got to have such a delightful retreat from your hard work. Wait, is that…Finn McCool? Polly apparently has befriended the giant.
Ireland is the home of my heart…and it was so wonderful to see Polly running free in my beloved Connemara! Thank you for sharing!
Thank you for sharing the lovely photos of Polly and the Irish landscape.. Polly looks like she had a smashing good time.. I do hope you and hubby got some time to admire it also..
Connemara! So wild and beautiful. Thanks to you and Polly for sharing your adventure. It brought back memories.
What a wonderous trip!!!! So cute to see, gotta ask, did you take all those wonderful photos with your phone???????
I’m so glad you enjoyed the pictures. Yes, they were taken by my Samsung Galaxy 6 phone!
Great pics – Polly is soooo photogenic. She has a lot more fun than most of us.
Red head Polly Montgomery, who always loved and admired Salley’s work, would have enjoyed these very much!
Thank you Polly for taking me along on such a beautiful and refreshing ( the Guinness ) adventure. . .
Such fun to see.
We are going back to visit Ireland again in 1918 and I am so looking forward to it. Polly is such a good tour guide.
So beautiful there – wonderful photos. Don’t let her drink that guiness! Her sweater is just perfect for Ireland. You really need to do some Polly children’s books with your hubby’s wonderful photos!
What a lovely holiday Polly had. She looks as if she was really Enjoying all the beautiful places she visited . Yes please a book about her adventures would be much enjoyed. With all good wishes to you from the UK . Jane W
Polly is one lucky gal! She must have had a clever tour guide!
Thank you for reminding me of this Salley. 🙂 Lucky Polly doll. (Sigh…)
I have only looked quickly at your items and absolutely love the dolls. Is there somewhere listed cost for them?
Thank you for your interest in purchasing my dolls, Veronica, but I don’t sell them. You can learn to a make your own, though. My how-to book, Felt Wee Folk has instructions and patterns.
