Freckles~Down on the Farm
In need of a new home! This is Freckles~Down on the Farm. She is a 20" raggedy Annie type doll. She is made from muslin and stained with coffee and tea for a realistic skin tone. She wears a farm print dress featuring cows, barn, and apple trees. I have attached a red button at the bodice front. Over her dress she wears a red bandana print apron which ties in the back at waist and neck...I have attached 2 green buttons where the shoulder straps meet the apron top. She wears muslin bloomers beneath her dress and little white bobby socks on her feet. And check out those red suede shoes. Mary Jane style of course. Her face is hand drawn, hand painted, shaded and sealed. Her hair is a brown wool yarn tied up into ponies with matching fabric bows. She is totally cute! And you can purchase her here! She is $25.00 plus $7.80 for shipping.

I am mother to 2 young adults. My daughter is 28 and gave me my 1st grandchild on July 2, 2008...Brody. She is currently pregnant with another grandson. My son is 24 and gave me my 2nd grandchild, named Austin who was born April 14th 2009. I am married to "Prince Charming" (LOL) and have been for almost half my life. I enjoy making dolls...I like to call them "country Prim" because they are more cutesy than primitive...yet stained like prims. I have been sewing and creating for the past 17 years and have come a long way since the days of my first floppy eared bunny. I have had a scarecrow featured as one of many on the cover of Country Marketplace Magazine...which is no longer in existance. I have been in Better Homes and Gardens Crafters Showplace Magazine and once had a sales rep who took many of my items to gift shows and sold to craft shops across the United States. I am now trying to figure out the vast world of internet exposure. And this is yet another adventure for me. I can now be found on Etsy and eBay...
