My New Girlfriends

Look who arrived in Nod yesterday!!


My new BFF's from Tammy at A Primitive Place!!  I was the winner of her "just because" giveaway.  Can you say "YIPPEE!!!"? 

I LOVE this gal (I've named her Immogene)!!  She's the most absolutely perfectly primitive rag-stuffed rag doll - made of old cotton fabric with wonderful, true, old, repairs on the fabric, and dressed in one of my all-time favorite color combinations: browns and blues.  Her dress is a sweet, vintage, brown-checked, cotton, and her apron is a dreamy mix of two beautiful old blue calicoes.  YUMMY!  Her bonnet is made from an old quilt.....

And, she came with her own sweet church doll (whom I've named Ida).  Ida is made of burlap and dressed in more beautiful blue and brown vintage fabrics....




Just look at that face!!


Thank  you so much Tammy!!  Immogene and Ida wanted me to let you know they arrived safely, and think they will be very happy here in Nod......(no doubt - they're being spoiled rotten....)  ;o)

I will ake a true confession, my gramma and my mum and I have made cotton dolls like this for years and i never knew they were called Primitive, our house was and still has a lot of Primitive but ours are just old, ha ha ha , but because all these things were made by family I just always kept them.Whats new to me is the fact people collect and make them look old, that facsinates me to no end.Very interesting crafting indeed.I love it, you have a wonderful collection of Primitive things and this doll is such a wonderfu;l addition,I can tell how much you love them as well, thats wonderful that is.

Imma (I've already nicknamed her) and Ida are so precious and wonderfully hand crafted. Tammy does such a good job with her wares. There is something so comforting about blue. Congrats on this great win.

Oh, she's lovely! She has the most laid-back expression I've ever seen on a doll. And the muted browns and strong blues look lovely together. You are a lucky crow!
