I'm a "day late and a dollar short" today - - - but here comes my post anyway!!!
This is my "Christmas Baby Doll," so called for the very original reason that she was my Christmas present when I was in Kindergarten.
I'll never forget that Christmas. My sister and I awoke, and thinking our parents were already up we headed down the stairs. About halfway down, we heard our dad calling us to come back up.
He asked if we saw the tree at the bottom of the stairs. I answered that I did. He said, "what did you see?" I replied, "I saw a pink doll for Pam and a blue one for me." I was right.
Isn't she a beauty? She's wearing baby clothes that our daughter Korie wore, about 12 - 18 month size.
I've already shown you that she makes a GREAT wig trimming stand for blue mylar wigs.
This is my OTHER thrifty vintage item for today.
Nope - - - not the senior picture of Kyle, who returns from Sweden TOMORROW btw.
Nope - - - not the Willow mother-daughter figurine, though I certainly DO love that.
Nope - - - not the tea cup, though tea cups ARE up there on my list of favorites.
It's the little table which is ACTUALLY a - - -
Sewing machine cabinet.
Not just ANY sewing machine, but the one that belonged to my Grandma Butcher. I used to use it, but since I really do HATE to sew, now I just keep it for its beauty, sentimentality, and nostalgic value.
It is not a treadle sewing machine, it has this pedal which is mounted inside the cabinet at just the perfect height to be operated by your knee.
Oh - - - the DUST on that pedal, that's vintage too, and I threw it into the post at no additional charge, 'cause that's just the way I roll around here.
