My popularity in the blogging world is, well, let's just say I have the most loyal handful of readers out there; great friends and family who check in on our little corner of life every now and then. And I am sure that my small audience has a bigger audience of their own and so on.
My point? I need help.....well, actually, my sister needs help.
Isn't this picture FANTASTIC?!
Today as i was browsing through Country Living online, i found myself daydreaming about how i want to fix up baby #2's room when the time comes. As i was browsing, i came across this picture and my heart skipped a beat. I teared up when i saw the gingham doll displayed in this picture. This doll was my best friend for many of my early years. I even chewed the fabric off her button nose. She also came with a white eyelet hat (and possibly bloomers..I can't quite remember). I had this purple doll, Laura had her in pink, and Mellissa had her in blue.
Here is what i need your help with...Does anyone remember what the name of this gingham cutie is or what company produced her? I've tried several different searches using words like vintage, gingham, checkered, rag doll, and plush doll. I can't seem to find this yarn-haired beauty anywhere.
Maybe i'm in total nesting mode, or maybe i'm convinced that the little person calling my belly home for the next two months is a girl. Either way, i have a really strong desire to find one of these dolls to buy. Nothing would give me more pleasure than to put this doll in my daughters crib. If we have another boy, then i'll just be happy having a memento of my childhood...plus Chris thinks we are going to have a 3rd someday so there is hope that #3 could be a girl.
Thank-you for your help and for taking the time to read this. I really hope someone can help me.
So, there you have it! My first guest post from my big sister. Please, ask your moms and aunts, pass along the word, or make a post on your own blogs if you are as driven as we are to find one of these checkered cutie-pies. Thank you! The adorable, round, nesting sister of mine appreciates it, as well.
