Ann Wall Plaque

After almost 17 years of marriage I can say I've got hubby trained! Least when it comes to my indulgence of Raggedy Ann items. Hubby looks on his own and manages to find a few Ann's every once and a while.

Here is a recent find and surprise for me! I love her, just maybe because my hubby bought it for me.



She is a plastic wall plaque from the Bobbs-Merrill Company Inc., 1977. The v in the eye is typical of this era, she also look somewhat gangly with the lower, broader smile.

I couldn't find her in any of my books but came close with the following plaque, the same year and same logo.
You have to love them! C&G Design.

At first with the talk about being trained, I was going to hire you out for your expertise then saw it was only for Ann items.. 20 years and still training going on in this household... lol...

Ann is a doll. Pun intended.. I am one with a pun today... :)
