Alex's mamma made this little doll for Alex. She's made of a hickory nut, mullein leaves, pinecone pieces and other things from nature. Mamma took snippets of her hair, along with a bit from Shoe and from Alex, and made the doll's hair with it. What a neat treasure to take with her on her trip. I was so glad to meet Alex, and I know her mamma must be a special lady to think of something like Miss Hickory for her daughter. :) I know Shoe was bustin' his shirt buttons right off when he told us what a smart kid she is, too.
