Several days ago, the mail truck brought happiness to my house. I used some cat sitting and late birthday money to buy goodies for historical girls.
Addy received her embroidery hoop and apron! I bought these from someone on AGPT for $7. (I hope it's not gauche to quote a figure...) There's a small stain on the apron, but I may be able to get it out. For $7, I'll certainly try!
Addy immediately clamped the hoop down and wanted to try her hand at embroidery, but I asked her to smile for a picture first. (And for anyone who wonders, I got Addy's snood in a set of four from ebay seller drommer0 last year. I've read that snoods are actually anachronistic for her period... she'd have worn a hairnet in a color to match her hair. But I can overlook that info... I love snoods!! I have one myself.)
Addy had to try on her apron despite the fact that it obviously doesn't fit over her school suit.
Happy Felicity received her fashion doll and invitation. I got this set from another seller on AGPT for $19. The doll is sort of TLC because she was bitten by a cat in her previous life. The damage isn't bad and may be fixable... it looks more or less like chipped paint.
Sorry this pic came out so blurry... I meant it to show how okay the dolly looks, but that didn't work out so well. You'll have to take my word for it. ;)
And as a bonus shot, I'm happy that all my historicals and my two historical best friends now have dolls. I'm sure you'll recognize them all but Ivy's (bottom right). I got her doll at a local antique store.
I like all my dolls to have dolls. Plus I hate it when all my historicals but one or two have a specific type of item. When I got Josefina's Indigo Skirt and Camisa for my birthday, I felt this real push to get Lissie's Laced Jacket and Petticoat. My mom surprised me with it not long after that.
