Friday Favorite Family Foto ~~ Raggedy Britt

Deborah of Pictures Pots and Pens is hosting Friday's Favorite Family Fotos. Stop by and see who is joining in on the fun. Be sure to visit them as well.

Last week I posted a picture of Tim when he was one! This time it's Britt! This was taken in 1982 when she was 2 years old. She had a Raggedy Ann doll that was the same size as she was. I took the dress off the doll and put it on her. It was a perfect fit! I found an old pink crocheted hat that I made a wig out of by adding LOTS of red fringe. I made the fringe from a skein of yarn I had lying around the house. It was one of the easiest costumes I've ever made.

Is she cute or what?
This year she'll be taking her 3 year old daughter and 8 month old son out trick or treating. When did she grow up and have children of her own????


take care,

Oh, how funny that she's wearing her doll's clothing! But on my goodness, she couldn't be any more adorable! I love the pictures you share, Dawn!

Hi Dawn,
That is a priceless photo! I cherish all my old photos and want to get them all scanned one day. LOL

Hope you have a great Halloween!

Beverly said...

She is a cutie, and her babies are cuties, too.

Happy Halloween, Dawn.

Joy said...

Oh Dawn, she was PRECIOUS! (And I'm sure still is.) That is a fantastic photo. I'd have that on display year-round if I were you! :o)

What is it about little girls in Raggedy Ann costumes? I have a couple of my own. :o)

What a great idea to use the doll's dress and make a wig out of yarn. She could not look any more adorable.

Darlene said...
