Receiving something from the
Tasha Tudor Family Store
is like getting a present from through the Post!!
Always wrapped so thoughtfully!
The "Doll News" Spring addition is
PACKED with everything that you would want to know about Tasha
and her Dolls and more. With contributors such as;
Marjorie Tudor (Doll Maker and Tasha's Daughter-in-Law),
John Hare of Cellardoor Books,
an interview with Christine Crocker
would like a new dress to celebrate the arrival of some new members to the Doll Family at Bleat'n Hum baa Farm'n Fiber.
She is finding inspiration from
"A is For Anna Bell"
"The Dolls' Christmas"
By Tasha Tudor
Missie and Mildred offered to help me with the project
and Missie will learn how to use a treadle
(perhaps Friend Miss Tillie Tinkham
Seamstress Mouse at Corgyncombe
can share some pointers)
MaMa Mildred is eager to start measuring!
Pollina would like a pretty dress too!
And also would like a red wool peddler's cape and goods.
Aunt Bitty does not approve!
(actually she never approves of anything....
in fact her last name is Bitterish)
Beautiful "Bella" joined in March
by Christine LeFever
And Sisters "
Miss Mamie and Miss Emily .....
..... joined only weeks ago!
They were sitting in an old restaurant
decorated and packed with many antique curiosities
all dusty and with price tags on all!
Ten dollars for each doll!!! But I only chose one!
The lady said that the dolls were from a collector who made clothes and repaired old dolls. Home I went in love indeed....but a sleepless night
sent me soon back for the other and a HAPPY reunion was a grand result!!!
"It's an anxious, sometimes
dangerous thing to be a doll.
Dolls can not choose;
they can only be chosen;
they cannot "do";
they can only be done by;
Children who do not understand
this often do wrong things,
and then the dolls are
hurt and abused and lost;
and when this happens
dolls cannot speak,
nor do anything except
be hurt and abused and lost.
you should remember that."

Meet some of the Dollies that live at
The Bleat'n Hum Baa Farm'n Fiber
This is PAMMY!
My very FIRST bestist ever Dolly

we were inseparable
with her long time friends
Bitzy and Gretalynn
My Grandma "Omi" made this for Pammy.
Once as a Child my family had the great opportunity
to visit a museum in Chicago. I was allowed to pick
a souvenir and this beautiful Japanese Doll was my choise!
Here is Mini and Minier along with Peg-doll Penny
and some Amish lill'ins
An Aunt who lived in New Mexico
used to send me the neatest gifts for no reason,
and Heidi was the most beloved surprise in a package!
The Older Girls down the street out grew Ginny, (right)
and Cecile was acquired when I was a Teen at a yard sale
(She wants the Teddy)!
