The other doll and bags

This was the second doll... She's the same size, floppy, and has a hand painted face ...She also has some lovely petticoats and a stylish hat...all in her own colors... I am still amazed I did all that work on these dolls and forgot them...They have to have been in the trunk for 8-9 years.


















This doll had beaded bloomers and beaded shoes... The comments are right I should give the girls the option... If they don't want them I will put them in a charity auction... which is a much better plan than sticking them back in the trunk until great grandchildren...which may be a long time coming..




Also in the trunk were 4 tapestry totes that I can really use right now...

Then after I rearranged all the furniture I didn't like it and as soon as DH got home he helped me move it all back where it was.... but I wouldn't have found the dolls otherwise... maybe I should deep clean more often.......................maybe not!!!

Serendipity has spoken Gerry. But my advice is not to "offer" them to the girls...I think you should choose which girl should receive which doll...and then you write them a beautiful note that you include with the doll...why you made them...how much you love them...how you tucked them away because you thought they were too old for them...how you found them again...and how now, you want them to have them more than ever.

I wish with all my heart that my grandmother had written me such a note to go with the blanket I sleep with every night. I think I would cherish the note even more than the blanket...

just a thought...
