Sadly, it's been far to long since this latch has been opened.
For inside this trunk is a delightful treasure.
Using Tasha Tudor's book A is for Annabelle as her guide, my mom found a sweet china doll and proceeded to created each and every accessory described in the book to go along with her. The entire ensemble was then gifted to my Dear Daughter (AKA-teen #2) on her forth birthday.
Isn't the cloak adorable and cozy?
I'd forgotten about the ribbons for her hair. I want some ribbons for my hair now too!
My very favorite of all, however, is the wee little locket.....
.....for tucked inside is a remembrance of Teen #2 when she was still our Baby Girl.
