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.
Alex and Miss Hickory
Shie IS special...and He Mom is very proud of her I am sure, Jo
That sure is one special doll for a very special, beautiful girl. Alex was such a treat and just like I pictured her. I think she had a great time.
She and Bethany played forever on Saturday. They were great together and she seems as gentle natured as her Daddy.
Here's a close-up Dave took of Miss Hickory: http://whitinger.net/roundup/640/dscn2171.800.640.jpg and Shoe's description of her is in this thread: http://davesgarden.com/showthread/285088.html
Alex is an extremely pretty little soul.
Miss Hickory is also a wonderful present to bring along from her Mammy.
Well done family 'Shoe'
I did not get to spend much time with Alex but it was easy to see what a wonderful and sweet child she is. It was also easy to see how much her father loves her. The kids could not get over how long her hair is. :)
