a little boy

Once upon a time there was a little boy who was helping his mama clean her studio. He said, "Mommy, what can I play in your studio?" The mama thought. "Well, buttons, fabric scraps, magnets on the inspiration board. Hmm . . . oh, I know!"
The mama got down her old doll, Amy. It was the doll her grandmother had made her back in the 1970's. Amy has a very cool wardrobe of rockin' 70's clothes. The little boy was very interested in the doll, especially in dressing her.
He decided to try on his mama's old genie costume as well (her grandmother had made this too for halloween one year).
Amy was happy to see the light of day and be played with again.
The end!

I love following your blog, sometimes I don't know how you do it all! But first things that come to mind when I log on, inspiration, peace, and fun. Saw you were featured on Crafty Crow for your Button Sorting activity! Congrats!

Whoa--I have a very similar doll that my mom made--Daisy Dorice--I think she might be a tad smaller and floppier, but she has the same eyes and hair (but only one dress)...how great your boy(s) play with her!

How sweet! It's great when boys play with dolls. Why not? They can play daddy, just like little girls play mommy. I bet your doll had fun, too!
