I have been doing a lot of this and that this week.
Mostly THAT, you know how it goes.
I cleaned out a closet and came across this little flash from the past:
My Raggedy Ann and Andy pillow cases!!!
Raise your hand if you had a Raggedy Ann or Andy Doll.
Shout YIPPEE if you had the sheet set!!!
I loved me some Raggedy Ann. Thank you Mom for saving this for me.
I remember having the doll and putting my own ‘stamp’ on her.
Do you remember she had a red heart on her chest…off to one side. Like, um, like a heart?
Well, I thought it was only fitting for her to have a matching set.
Yes, I gave her matching heart shaped ‘lady lumps.’
I seem to recall cutting all my dolls hair and applying lipstick to them as well. (and by lipstick, I mean nail polish to the lips!)
See, my future in cosmetology was in the cards from day one.
I was also her for Halloween one year when I was about 5 or so.
I am pretty sure I resembled nothing like this Raggedy HARLOT Ann.
Who would do that to her? The nerve.
We are planning on working on our farm(ville) this weekend. Putting up the fence to keep the critters out. Coach is making me a fab lattice for the tomato plants too. Of course you will see photos when we get that far.
Did you deface any of your prized toys as a kid?
Are you going to do that this weekend?
I don’t do that stuff anymore…now we just dress up the dogs!!!!
They love it. I swear.
Bee sweet. Bee Fun. Bee a DOLL!
