Smiley


I took this picture a while ago, 
but I still grin from ear to ear every time I see it. 

Don't you just love these huge Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls? 

Hope you all are having a smiley kind of weekend.

  6. They are timeless! We still have my daughter's Knickerbocker Raggedies.
    Stay warm.. I had to laugh at the news paper today. Every Saturday they have a column that tells you what you should be doing in your garden this week. We should be pruning. I actually laughed out loud.

    1. I've seen quite a few at the shops here. Maybe it's a regional thing.

  8. I remember that when I was a child my sister and I had our room decorated with Raggedies Dolls: the curtains, the quilt bed..
    I placed a drawing in the door with Raggedy Ann and Andy.
    Also these two dolls were there.
    Blessings,

    1. Thanks! We are staying snug inside. Mr. Garden had to go out in the brutal cold to shovel snow and feed the birds, but came back inside as quick as possible.
