Soul Food (part 37)




Today a post filled with fun. This doll you see here is called Dotje. Dotje is already a grand old lady because she is more than forty years old. A family member made her when I was a little girl and she always has been a close friend. Nowadays she is a close friend for my boys who still play with her. During her life she lost her hair and her little white dress with red dots and I had to repair her on several occasions but that is ok. Dotje is loved deeply.



Such a grand lady deserves a spot on Soul Food and here you can see her.



Have a fantastic weekend filled with friendship and creativity.

Oh, so cute! She's so lucky, a toy that is passed through generations in an age when everything seems disposable.
