Show and Tell
Today I would like to share my fun primitive doll.
I found her at Goodwill for $1.99! I thought that was such a bargain!
I couldn't resist her, she just called to me!!!
I like her kitty cat, although he looks a little bit under the weather!

She is handmade and the handiwork is very nice.

They used an old tea towel for her apron, isn't this cute!

Even her back side has so much detail.


I love the old lace that is sewn all around the hem of her dress.

A face only a mother could love! Actually I love it too!

Have a wonderful day!

Sharon you found quite a treasure for 1.99! You are my kind of shopper! I love all the detail and that tea towel apron is wonderful. Enjoy....

Anita said...

Yes, she seems to be very special indeed! And her face made me smile! I can understand why you love her!

Have a great week-end, Sharon!

Best wishes, Anita

Mimi asked what kind of material her face is made of. I am just guessing, but it looks and feels like it is painted fabric. It is really rough and not very pliable. Maybe she needs Oil of Olay! lol!

Wow, what a cute primitive doll, and great bargain! Why would anybody give her to Goodwill?? I love the creative clothing.

I posted a 2nd S&T since I couldn't get it to work last night, if you would like to return to see!

Hi Sharon! What a wonderful doll and show & tell. I always wonder about these items that are made with so much love and care and then end up at a thrift store. Seems a little sad, but then someone like you buys them and treasurers them and that is special! Kinda like God does with us!!!

Wow! She is a real treasure for sure. I love the apron that's made from the tea towel and the lace is exquisite. You got a really good buy and I know she has a very loving home. Thanks for sharing.

Blessings,

She's so cool, Sharon! I love primitives and one of my old teacher colleagues had a very similar doll sitting on a bench in her foyer...greeting all of her guests! Yours is fantastic. :o)

Have a super great weekend, lady-o!

Sharon, your doll is great! How will you display her? I am thinking that you need to have a blog column specifically to help those of us who are not so good with bargain shopping. You are amazing! I love your finds.

This is one cool doll. I think the price makes her even better - I just love a bargain! Her tea towel apron alone is worth alot more that 2 bucks. Very neat post- Jennifer

Hugs,
