I'm electing a picture of Madame's Sock Hop skirt, she has worn it for the past two years. Madame's friend has a birthday the weekend the elementary school, PTO put on a sock hop dance. It is almost tradition she and the party attend, then they sleep over (staying up to all hours).
One of these days, the skirt won't fit! C & G Design.

The cashier took a double take and told me I got a good purchase. I can't really date the set but this advertisement indicates it was issued before Kaya, Kit, Josephina, and now Julie, became part of the historic collection. It also has just the five girls. I took the set home, made a large scrapbook (cover of the book is behind ad) and put my collection in each designated pocket.

But check out the lace curtains and her zig-zag trim on her dress, it's the back stitch (going in the fabric, coming out a stitch away, going back through the same starting point, coming out a stitch away, move down to the next point). Very tedious but in the right application, it is beautiful.
This needle point is professionaly mounted with the name of the needlepoint inked on the backing, piano lessons. I'm going to leave it like that and hang it next to the piano so Madame can have a continuing reminder to practice.
Think it will work? C & G Design.

I'm posting my four teacups and matching saucers my grandmother had.
I found a perfect shelf to display all of them. My grandmother packed 4 shoe boxes each full of 4 teacups and saucers for 4 of her granddaughters.

"Now let's have a good time!" cried the tin soldier. "Let's go in search of something to eat!" "Yes, let's go in search of something to eat!" cried all the other dollies. "You lead the way Raggedy Ann!" said the french dolly.
"Sh!" said all the other dollies, "Raggedy has been thinking!"
Special thanks to the Project Gutenburg. C&G Design.

This is Plassie, I think....the only true way to tell is to look at the patent number on the crier. My crier works, so I'm not going to take it apart! #2252077. Plassie was 18 to 24''. Mine is 21''. She had a crier.....arms are full, legs are "swing" version with the thigh being half cloth, half other material. She was issued in composition then hard plastic, she eventually was issued with a HP head and magic skin such as mine.
Visit Doll Reference for a wealth of information that also includes pictures. This is a 21'' Plassie.
