Great collection!

I made a cornhusk doll once. It wasn't nearly so pretty as these!

I was about 11 years old at the time.

sara said...

your collection of corn husk dolls is wonderful!! It brought back a memory for me of girl scouts where we learned to make our own!!! I wonder what happened to that doll?

Good morning Miss Smily, Your collection is amazing! I wish you were allowed words with this. Perhaps some other time you can show us where you keep them when they are not all out playing and working on your table and tell us more.

Since I'm not really "into" dolls and I see my wife's comment just above the one I'm writing, I'll just say I agree with her and let that be my comment. (Didn't want to leave without commenting.)

Leah said...

Sally, I am so late commenting as this whole day was busy and left me no time on the computer. Sigh.

I LOVE your cornhusk doll collection. The mother/daughter theme suited your wordless collection perfectly. I have not seen such a nice collection.
Great photos too.

Hugs...Jeanne
