This past Christmas I really wanted my husband to get me a gift that was a total surprise because I knew everything I was getting, and he often just puts my presents unwrapped under the tree or in store sacks. I repeatedly hinted to him that I would love anything from Cats Cradle. I said I’d love a Bag-O-Stuff! Christmas morning came and to my dismay I didn’t see anything extra under the tree. He waited a few moments then proceeded to send me on a hidden treasure hunt. He told me to go downstairs to a room that would one day be my craft studio. He had hidden several perfect gifts! The first was an adorable (green with chippie paint) medicine cabinet for my craft room bathroom that said “Open me“.
I’m unsure why these dolls are so fascinating to me, but with all the electronic devises today such as iPads, video game controllers, TV, I imagine a much simpler life where little girls had tea parties and played with their tiny dolls without saying “Mom, we’re bored”. the little girls were so grateful they had these dolls to play with because often that was the only toy they had. I imagine making fun clothing for them, using tiny leftover scraps of lace.
