Topsy Turvy

What an amazing expression of love my girls received today from their Nanny (grandma). My mum worked all year despite the arthritic pain in her hands to make these 2 absolutely amazing topsy turvy cinderella dolls for my girls. For those not familiar with topsy turvy dolls, when you hold these particular ones one way they are  cinderella in her "rags" dress. Turn her upside down, pull the dress down and it is cinderella in her ball gown. They are about 15-inches or so and just amazing. You would never know that mum has such terrible pain in her hands looking at the beautiful quality of her work. She always says she does not do a very good job on the things she makes, boy is she wrong. These dolls will be a treasure that can hopefully be passed on to the next generation.

I had fun watching S playing with "Rags" cinderella tonight pretending that she was scrubbing the floors. Mum even personalized each doll by putting the girls' name on their cinderella's dance card.
