Dolls are something I have been wanting to do for a long while now. I have attempted my hand at some over the past few years or so and now I present a little raggedy ghost girl doll. I enjoyed my hand sewing time with her, especially giving her a sweet little bow for her ghostly hair. I had to take some nice photos of her complete with a sweet gift to me by the lovely Drucilla Pettibone. She crafted my nickname along with my shop name on a vintage handkerchief. I am constantly amazed by her brilliance in embroidery. You must see her visually inspiring blog along with delights in her shop. She is also one half of the ladies behind Ragtime Seance (along with Mathyld). I am so in love with this cherished token. I plan on having it always, sending it along with my daughter when I am old and gray so that she could have it and one day pass it along as well.
