Heads and Shoulders

Last Saturday, Willow Bend Prims had a post with some plain and simple prairie dolls, really prim and sweet. Back when we were doing shows, Dorothy always made the Amish dolls so I never had made a doll with no facial features. So wanting to try something new (but to not copy Willow) I did some shoulder dolls. I did digress, couldn't stand it if they didn't have some lace at the neck. Now that I have it out of my system, I won't make any more so if you like her, feel free to copy away.

I am really enjoying Willow Bend Prims, she is a very hard worker, sometimes all night, and she now has under construction a new selling blog. It's Willow Bend Prims Mercantile Peddler of Handids so give her a visit soon.
Another concoction of my very own. Maybe they should have had no face, but I like them, we don't all have to be beautiful. Happy Thursday, the sun is shining in Michigan.

They may not be beautiful ladies, but those angels do make me SMILE. Still snowing here in Ohio today!

I love them because they are full of character and charm! I am a Raggedy Ann doll maker........however, have not made any in years. But I make their hair different and their clothes different. I think your dolls speak of a beauty of their own. blessings,Kathleen

Oh Peggey I just love them all ! I think you did a wonderful job. And sweety thank you soooooo much for mentioning my lil ol blog. That sure made my day and put the biggest smile on my face !!!! Wish you could find a picture of the bonnet you were talking about that your Mom made. I'd love to see it. And you don't worry about copying cause I don't mind at all. The way I see it we all give each other inspiration and ideas so anything you see on my lil ol blog is free to share =0) You are such a doll !
