A good friend at work knows how I love Victorian dolls and thing of the past, brought me an American Girl doll in need of a good loving home and some serious medical attention. I think she is Samantha. She has one hand badly eaten by a dog, hair was tangled and matted.
I saved her from being thrown out. I plan to send her to the American Girl Doll Hospital. She will be in good health by May for the American Doll Tea Party at Hearthside
The History of Samantha Parkington: this doll was released in 1986, along with Kirsten Larson and Molly McIntire. They were American Girl's first three Historical Characters. Samantha was officially archived May 2009 after selling out Feb 3, 2009.
I live in an old Providence apartment building over looking the
The building was built in the early 1900's.
I has very high
ceiling and large parlor windows.
“It has a lovely built-in china
cabinet in the dining room. The Parlor of the apartment has the old cozy
charm of it's era." I have decorated my home to reflect my
lifestyle". Lots of dolls, lace and doilies.
Many pictures of ladies in
nineteenth century dress grace the walls. I have purchased some
things of vintage reproduction because I finds the authentic too costly.
“I do collect tea pots, cup and tea items. I will spend more for them
than I should.”
