One Of My Favorite Things

I recently posted a repro doll my hubby gave me and thought I would post this one, too.

Estelle is one of my favorite things. She is named after my paternal aunt and Estelle is a wax over paper mache' English doll. She was made in the first half of the 1800's and has a slit in her head on the top where her real hair ringlets are inset. She has wonderful glass eyes and her hands and fingers are a finely woven fabric. Estelle's shoes are stitched of leather. Her dress, I believe, is not original but is vintage lace. She sports a pink satin belt and a golden brooch.

Her face is crazed from years of humidity and cold but I love her just the same. She was another anniversary gift from Frank. He knows how to treat me right!

It pleases me to save these dollies and to protect them, much like God saved me and protects me with His Spirit.

If you are tattered and torn and crazed tonight, know that the peace of God will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.

Thanks for stopping by.
