Red Riding Hood!
and the Coronation Doll!!
I bought them for my mom and paid just $7.00 for all three of them. She has always loved dolls - so do I - and these were in such good condition that I knew she'd like them. When I took them out of the bag, she said "oh, those look like gas station dolls that you used to get when you'd fill your car with gas." All I remember getting with gas purchases was free glasses at Holiday and that was many years ago!! LOL! Anyway, I have a couple of these dolls from when I was a kid and they were old then and didn't have their original clothes so I made clothes for them. These dolls are in their original outfits complete with the staples that hold them in place. I'm guessing the Coronation Doll is in celebration of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth. Red Riding Hood never looked so fine as she does in that red polka dot dress. The little doll is not the cutest but her dotted swiss dress just made me think of Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind!! There are no markings on the dolls so I have no clue to their manufacture. They just called my name when I saw them on the shelf. ;-) That's the last of the items I found at the Country Peddlar Thrift Shop in Algona, Iowa.
I've been on the computer a lot today so time to close the door on it. Had lots of new members join my Wooly Buddies group. If you like working with wool or want to learn more about it, click on the Tulip Penny Rug on my sidebar and it will take you to the homepage for Wooly Buddies. It's a fun group!!
Back tomorrow night.....
