What better time to add a doll to the family than 48 hours before the American Girl Benefit doll sale?!
I’ll give you a few easy clues…
There are braids….
And lovely gray eyes and cheeks with a subtle blush…
It’s Pleasant Company Molly!
Molly comes from my sister-in-law, who bought her at the Madison Museum sale about 16 years ago. Molly has been in a box ever since. She is in terrific shape but will need to be restrung very soon because her legs are dangling. I don’t mind investing the money in this high quality doll and will send her to the doll hospital this summer before school starts up and life gets busier.
After spending 16 years in a sweater and a wool skirt (in the southern US, no less!) I thought Molly might want to get into something a little breezier for the summer.
She is lounging in our sunroom in Maryellen’s summer PJs.
Molly was the first doll Brianna wanted back in 2nd grade, because she also wears glasses. We were all set to take our first trip to AGP-Chicago to get Molly, and Molly was retired about 2 days before our trip. Crushing! She ended up with Saige instead and life went on.
At first we were going to pass on Molly (no room at the inn!!), but my sis-in-law really wanted her to come to live with us, and after she sent pictures, that sealed the deal. It’s kind of like people who “just look” at cats or dogs on the Humane Society website and find themselves unable to say no to another fluffy friend.
We couldn’t be happier she is here!
