A Gift I will treasure forever

I am so delighted with the new addition to my family.
I have named her Dorothy.  She is about 50-60years old and was given to me by a friend of  a friend who came to my fundraising afternoon tea a few weeks ago.

Dorothy has glued on hair and has the clothes that my friends mother made for her including panties,knitted cross over singlet and petticoat.

She saw how I so loved dolls, especially baby ones. Well I do have a few.

This little lovely was hers when she was a lass in England. 

How nice to want her childhood doll to go to a loving home.

Happy New Year to all my dear blogger friends
and I look forward to visiting you all in 2012 

Thank you all so very much for your kind comments throughout the year,it has been a real pleasure visiting you all too.

Blessings to you JeanetteAnn - and dear Dorothy - dolls keep a special domain in my home as well - though I haven't featured them too much. Something to look to in 2012! May your 2012 be full of good things and beauty and joy in the Lord!

How sweet to have this doll and know her story. So thoughtful of the friend of a friend to give her to someone who appreciates her! I hope you have a great 2012.
