A new doll for me!!


I have been waiting a long time for this someone special to arrive, and she's here!
Lady Sapphira Osborn-Peale is a 22 inch tall fabric doll. She is a born traveler, always ready for a new adventure.
Alas, she does not travel lightly!
She has an antique trunk, her antique traveling bag, and of, course her hat box, made from a vintage basket. She is wearing a jacket made from fine antique wool. Her skirt is made from antique fabric so any worn edges or imperfections are the added pieces of interest to her history. Lady Sapphira is hand made by Evi from Evi's Country Snippets. You can read about her in a previous post here.
As I opened the huge package that arrived all the way from New York, the first thing I found was this delightful tag...... oh so pretty!
And here she is.... complete with her hat basket and her satchel, and this fabulous trunk!!!




Have ever seen anything so wonderful? Maybe I shouldn't be telling everyone I still play with dolls. I am sure there must be a few friends out there that still do........ this takes me back to my childhood...... lots of good memories! Evi, I am so happy that you let Lady Sapphira come and live with me. We are off to meet the other ladies here......... she will be in good company.

There is no age that does not allow the playing with dolls, they seem to hold a special place in our hearts.
