Again I have entered Clare's Craftroom "Tuesday Treasure". I love being reminded of some of my most treasured possessions and this doll is a favourite.
My beautiful walking doll is now 53 years old and sure looks good for her age.
I got this doll for Christmas when I was 8 years old as our family were expecting a new baby brother or sister at the time and Mum wanted me to have something special just for me.
My baby sister Carole was born and I thought that was the best thing.
I loved playing with her and brushing her beautiful long hair which is now very thin on top but she still has long thick plaits.
The outfit she is wearing was knitted by Mum some years ago when she used to do a lot of heirloom knitting. Now with her Alzheimer's she doesn't do much of anything so I will always treasure this gift.
