Prudence is a doll I made earlier this year
and I simply wasn't satisfied with her.
I loved her name, but she just didn't look
like an elderly gray haired persnickety Prudence!
So, I added a black hand crocheted shawl.
I decided to give her hand stitched bonnet
a black silk ribbon and a spray of purple cloth
flowers with velvet leaves.
I added small antique bone buttons to the
back of her reproduction print dress.
I thought her petticoat needed lace that matched
her pantalettes and I added a chemise too.
Persnickety Prudence looked perfectly pretty
in her purple print dress!
I was finally satisfied.
I put her in a drawer and completely
forgot about her!!!
I was actually looking for something else
I'd put away for safe keeping when I
Is 60 really that old?
Do you do things like that?
Prudence is very grateful to be out
of the drawer and not too happy with the
way I have treated her! She's ready for an
adventure. So, I gave her a waist pocket, tucked an
Indian head penny inside for traveling expenses
and sent her on her way. She is headed
to a new home, to live with a very special
helpful, supportive, generous, kind, friend!!
Where is she going?
Could she be coming to live with you?
