Tuesdays Treasures

Today I wanted to share this little treasure of mine. It's a little doll that my sister made for me, many years ago.
She is completely sewn by hand and I just love the little hand embroidered face. Don't you just love her hair?..... Just wait till you see her hair when she turns inside out!!!!!
See? She's a topsy turvy doll... When you turn her inside out, she changes from happy to sad.
Now I really love her hair!!! I think she is just wonderful and I love that my sister made her just for me and put so much time and love into her. The fabrics in her dresses are very familiar too. I wonder if they're left overs from Mum's sewing days.
LinkI've photographed her inside a tea cup so you can see how small she is. I just love her and she sits inside my glass cabinet with some of my tiny teddies....
always with her happy face on!!!!
I'm off to Melody's to see who else is playing today.
Happy Tuesday!

She is sooo cute. I'll never complain of a bad hair day again - I will just remember how cute she is with her sad day hair.

Your sister must love you very much.
I just came across a card my sister gave me at the end of my first year of college. (Her second year.) We lived on different floors of the same dorm. She thanked me for making it an "interesting" (use of quotes is hers) year.
Thankfully we still talk.

Lots of happy memories.

Your little dolly is gorgeous and so tiny and sweet. You must treasure the fact your sister made it for you. I think I need one like that you could just have her facing the way you feel on the day. LOL! Lovely post.

She is so sweet - often the most valuable treasures are the hand made ones.

Your little Ladies are the sweetest things.
How special that your sister made them for you. I do like the unhappy hair - that truly says it all and some days really are like that!
Enjoy

Hello Darlin' I too still have my Topsy doll Annette made for me too, the material is familiar I think I made you both dresses from it, or maybe it was one of Nanna's dress fabrics. Love your blog, & I too have had many 'bad hair days' but don't think I looked that cute. Love you.

Such a sweet little treasure - it's years since I've seen a topsy turny doll! Even more special because your sister made her for you :-)
