Jalyn's Sleep Over........



My ten year old gran, Jalyn came home with me from church last night for a sleep over.  She brought her American Girl doll , Isabel with her. We took pictures of her doll, and mine which is a Gotz doll. Her American girl doll is a few inches bigger than my Gotz doll. We watched a movie together then talked way into the night. She got up this morning and cooked my breakfast.  She is quite the little homemaker.  I am always blessed with her company.

Her doll and mine. 


Speaking of dolls, I am a hopeless dolly mama. I found an old abused baby at a junk shop and could not resist rescuing her. Not only that , but I also rescued a Raggedy Ann over the weekend as well.  It's a very good thing I've done much weeding in my cottage as of late :) I can now afford the room for a few abandoned dolly children.



Here she is after a much needed scrubbing, and I mean a bleach clean scrubbing.  She has some permanent scaring to her from years of abuse.  Bruising, deep scars, some lost eye lashes, and she is even missing four fingers from one of her hands........poor, poor baby, but she's already looking much happier.  She's two feet tall, a big baby girl. I'm going to find some cute clothes for her and then she will be a whole new doll baby.

Blessings on your week my friends

What a great grandmother you are! Such a fun time for you both. I love that you rescue dolls. I have a very large collection of Madame Alexanders, Ideals and many others. I need to share some on my blog. =) My grandmother gifted me most of the dolls I own. She was special too.
Blessings and Sunshine, Valerie

I just bought a doll like that! (The one that you needed to scrub pictured). I will post it on my bees and buttercups blog soon. I was trying to research it but you know how the internet is...takes time. Andrea
