We have been so busy talking about Brianna’s new dolls that I haven’t had time to tell you about my Christmas presents 😉
This year I asked for items for Addy that I would wish to have if she does retire this year. Addy’s Christmas dress was at the top of the list. It is such a special part of the Addy books when Mrs. Ford gives Addy the returned dress just in time for Christmas, and Addy takes her gift and generates a gift for Momma in the form of a scarf when the dress is hemmed.
What’s that below the tree? It is way too big to be another dress for Addy!
It’s Addy’s bed! Brianna’s response was, “Where are you going to put THAT?” Hey, I thought you were on my side!
Addy’s bed is strung underneath with heavy string/cord. This is the probable origin of “Good Night, Sleep Tight” as the rope under an old fashioned bed could be tightened.
The cording under the bed seems like it could be destroyed by a smaller kid. The bed is assembled with screws and washers that can be undone for storage.
Addy tried it right out!
And here is the bed with the quilt. One slight disappointment is the quilt’s stiffness… it sort of defies gravity rather than draping softly over the sides. Another issue is the massive American Girl tags which cover every piece and make it hard to arrange the bed without a tag sticking out.
Still, I am thrilled to have this special item, and you can never have enough beds for dolls! Merry Christmas Addy!
This is our 100th post! 😃
