I'm so far behind with blogging. It seems like this time of the year is so busy. School is out now and my granddaughter is here a lot, so we try not to spend too much time online.
A few weeks ago, I spotted a "lot" of small dolls on ebay. No one bid against me, so I got them for such a great price. There was only one that I was interested in, but my granddaughter liked the others, so it was a win/win.
Of course, the little peg wooden was the one I wanted. She had a gold cord glued into a hole in the top of her head. I guess she started life as a Christmas ornament. First thing I did was pull the cord out, fill it with paper clay and dab a little black paint on it. One of her arms was twisted around so that it was on backwards. I was carefully able to turn it back around and now it's right and good as new.
She is jointed and made like old-fashioned peg wooden dolls. She is not old, but has that look that I love. She is not jointed at the elbows and knees, but I don't mind. She is only four inches tall.
Here she is with my Polly Shorrock dolls. She fits right in.
And here she is with Hitty Jane, Hitty Button and Little Peg. She fits in here too.
I was unsure what to name her, until a friend mentioned the name Tottie. I think it fits her perfectly.
Another good thing is....it's easy to make room for a tiny doll.
Today is Memorial Day. I hope everyone will remember and honor those who fought and died so that we can live in freedom.
