old and new

Just before Christmas I found this lovely vintage doll at the local Salvation Army shop. She came with a horrible dress but I knew beneath she would be just the perfect friend for miss E's other cloth doll that Melissa from tiny happy made. I'm not sure how old she is but we really love her and her printed body which includes a watch! Then with perfect timing a friend of my sister was wanting to find a home for some doll's clothes that her mother had made - they are so beautifully stitched and fit our new friend perfectly. Now we have tea parties for these two friends and they sleep together tucked up under a crochet blanket. Just perfect!

  3. Hi Melissa
    That dolly is a Clothkits Kitty dating from the late 70s/early 80s. I still have mine from when I was a girl and she is now being reloved by my daughter. You can find more photos of her (and the modern versions) at
    Love your blog
