My Senior Citizen Toni doll has an outfit at last! I found her when rummaging through a box of things, butt nekked.  So I had to drop everything else and make her an outfit. I don't know where her clothes are. Today I was looking for some of my other dolls and found a pair of shoes.  And they fit her as long as she doesn't go on any long hikes! Stitch her up some socks and she'll be good to go.

She still needs a visit to her hairdresser but in amazingly good shape for as old as she is.  I got her in 1952!

I also found a little doll quilt that my grandmother made for my oldest daughter.  It's not very big but she was nearly blind when she made it and it is entirely stitched by hand.

Sorry it's not a better photo. I really need to get something set up so they come out better. It's about 19.5"x15" and was tied with embroidery floss. I think my daughter received it in 1972 or so. Maybe even before that. We won't tell my daughter that I came across this!  She'd want it! I've been its caretaker for nearly 40 years doesn't that give me some sort of ownership rights? He-he!

Now if I could just find the quilt blocks that my Grandfather had made just before his death! Yeah, right, and someone is going to flat out GIVE me a Featherweight 222 in perfect condition too !! And I'm going to win the HGTV Dream Home in New Mexico so daughter #2 can have a larger home.

That's what's been happening on the farm other than spending several days with The Princess (who FINALLY got her Princess Castle so now she's a REAL Princess) and Little Man.

Friday Thankfulls

That it's the end of another week

For the rain I hear dripping from the eaves

For a day to rest from all the busyness of life

For good friends who will take time to listen

That no matter how humble it may be there's still no place like HOME!

Have a Great Weekend Everyone!

  1. I love this doll, Michelle! She reminds me of one that my sister had. I had one that was similar but she had long dark hair. Then she had short dark hair after I gave her a haircut. :-) I like the thoughts you share on your blog. :-)
