Jlily~ All the Raggedy lovers will be applauding I'm sure. She looks great and will look so neat with your RA doll next to it. You did a wonderful job! ~Anj

Wow! That is so cute all painted up with a Raggedy on it! I just love Raggedys! I have got to get the crack in my wooden ironing board fixed so I can get it painted up too. Your's just looks darling standing against that pretty blue wall. Luvs

Thank you ladies for the kind words. Yesterday I spent making a new dress and apron for my RA. She sits next to it on my bread box. Now DH can officially say "I am in my second childhood"!! Enjoy!! Jlily

Aha! Jlily, my DH has had to tolerate "my 2nd childhood" for a long time. Has had to put up with my wooden cutouts all over the place, the pig collection I had, the bunny items I still have, and now my painted roses on everything--and we won't go into my new passion for totems and BB's in the back yard! Poor guy. LOL He's learned that if it makes me happy, just go with the flow! Ha ha Luvs

Jlily, that is very lovely, I really like the blue/brown background like a sky. Very unique. You give yourself a pat on the back Girl, you did a fantastic job.

Jlily, that is just the cutest! My DIL collects Raggedys and has just started dabbling in painting. Have sent this thread off to her....I am betting she will have me Flea marketing for an ironing board!
