The newest one is this cute curly-headed doll holding a flower. She reminds me of some stuffed cats that my Mom made when I was little--I think the fabric was pre-printed with the cats, and all Mom had to do was cut out the back and the front and sew them together. This doll looks like that. I can't guess the age--maybe 40s? The best part about her is how vibrant her colors are.
When Ella was just a baby she received this stuffed chicken--poor chick had kept her comb and beak on for 50+ years, only to lose them within a week of being handled by a drooly baby. Oh well--such is life, right? I love the hand embroidery on this chick.
Here is my favorite--the little sheep. His expression is so neat--like he's on the sly. I also appreciate the method for his wool--it looks intricate and complicated. It seems as though he was well-loved in his time. Maybe that expression is saying "I'm real, you know." Like in the Velveteen Rabbit, my favorite children's book by Marjorie Williams.
I guess they make a sort of motley crew together, here on my most-favorite vintage blue step stool. Keep a look out for an upcoming "A Little Love Friday" post about my vintage stools!
