Wishing you all a Happy first day of May !
As many of you know, I have an affinity for wonderful small things that have to do with old dollies & babies...little shoes, little dresses, little cups & bowls, wee bonnets and books and most charming of all
these little children's baskets. These are from the early 1800's and have just come to live with me here. I discovered my very first of these little baskets nearly 15 years ago in a dusty cupboard of a Pennsylvanian estate sale. My heart just jumped!
Now, all of the Deerfield dollies are clamoring for a turn at holding them. The smallest here is but 3" tall, just right for my New England dolly, Elisabeth, that came to live with us 2 summers past.
I can only imagine the happy hours that these little baskets have spent under the lilac hedge with their little girl owners, pretending to be grown up ladies, playing with their dollies & having tea.
