Feeling a little Raggedy!!!!

 Well since I have been feeling alittle raggedy myself lately I thought I would share pics of my Raggedy Dolls I have. These are in my diningroom and I have collected them over the years. I love them. Most have come from Ebay or local craft shows. Some are even from my thrifting. This is my black wrought iron corner shelf. This room is kinda in Americana mainly becuz I have cherries in my kitchen. I love many styles!! LOL I am very eclectic!! The chalkboard is made by a really good friend of mine. Kaitlin got it for me from a craft show she was in. And if you can see the medal on it I won it two years ago in a 5 K walk I was in and I came in 2nd place in my age group! I am very proud of it. 

I also have a my collection of red vintage sewing and quilt stuff on here.

 I have a love of old hats as you know. I loved the colors in this old hat box and the red hat I added cherries to. The shoes are vintage and are sitting on an old rag rug. I love my Mr. Peanut bank. And I have a little black basket with my crocheted doilies and hot pads in. The black top hat belonged to Sim's Dad. I just put some cherries around it. I love cherries!!!

And I would have to say this is probably my most favorite doll. I love the cherries on her. I got her on Ebay. She is pretty big. And that yellow farm chair is one of my favorite things too. Sim got it for me a few years ago for my birthday. I have a few more dolls but they are up on my hutch.

This is the last doll I got at an auction. She is very prim. She sits on an old thread spool. I got this wine bottle at the New Years eve party I was at. I wanted it cuz it is from Traverse City and has a bird, nest, and cherries on it. I knew I wanted this bottle for a plant. I am hoping I can get it to vine down and the roots to grow all through the glass part.
So that is alittle bit of one of my collection that I love. I am feeling alittle raggedy myself as I have a kidney stone and I'll be having surgery this Friday to break it up. Right now I am on the couch in a nest of four pillows. I really can't wait til this over. Kidney stones hurt!! I am kickin out a Raggedy Fran. Cat Doll that I just designed. I just gotta coffee dye her and make alittle bagg. Then I will share her with you. She has been helping me to keep my sanity! LOL I am hand sewing her like my Crows and Bluebird dolls. I could just handsew everything!! LOL Thanks for checkin out my collection.
XOXO Love, Fran.
