Playing with Dolls
I was walking into a thrift store when I spotted this perfect little wing chair for 5 dollars. I immediately thought of my Julia Child doll and of how she would like a chair to sit and rest her feet.
The doll standing next to the chair is one I picked up at the same thrift store a few months ago. (See, I had been mulling over this doll thing for awhile.) I thought she had a beautiful face, but she had a chipped foot and was dressed in an ugly polyester kimono. I brought her home and dressed her in an outfit I'd made years ago for my daughter's American Girl dolls. She's in line for a fashion makeover once I decide on a look.
So Julia is very cozy in her new chair. She gets tired standing at the stove all day wielding that heavy whisk. And yes, if you notice the back of the chair, she had already placed an order for her own food quilt.
