Hespariah and Sofronia - Dolly Demands.

This note is to Martha from me and Sofronia. I am the really beautiful one on the right. My sister doll is very nice too, but only just pleasing. We are just being made, in our early beginnings really, so it might be good to get a few things out in the open, and establish some ground rules before going to far. Most of the time, us dolls don't get much say in what happens to us, we just have to sit or stand around and wait for Martha's pleasure, and watch as she broods over what to do, what kind of arms and legs we need, how worthy are we to get a dress out of her ( holy ) antique material, not to mention, if we get any shoes and socks or not. I know this letter sounds very critical of Martha, who ( bless her poor old soul ) does try her best, but we don't want to see the usual deciding on what will happen to us, and then, she just starts that old brain up and decides to make a big change right in the middle of things. We also want her to pay attention when making us ( you know ), put our heads on straight, how hard can that be, get the feet the same size, maybe double check a few things before zooming past the basics, maybe ask that Mr. Bobby sometimes if everything is looking good and correct. We want good dresses, and not the usual ones she makes, new ones in a new style, and we also want to have it made out of her precious old fabric that sits in the place of honor over there on the special shelf. I think Martha can make a pair of leather shoes for us, it might tax her brain to the limit, but I don't think it's over the top to make this request. We don't have to have bonnets, in fact, we rather like the idea of  having our hair styles be seen. One of us is being made as a gift for Martha's sister, who she loves dearly, so I know when Martha reads this letter from us, she will do her best and try to behave and comply with all our wishes. We feel better now that things are all sorted out and we will be blooming out just as we hoped. Thanks


 Martha ( in advance ) for your work and loving us, and understanding our dolly needs.

  1. If dolls really could talk, we might be surprised at the things they would say. In your case, I am sure the murmurings about Mother Martha would all be good.. In the Great Hereafter, I cringe to think about the stories mine might tell. Your dolls here are looking good...don't see that they should have any complaints.

  2. Oh you crack me up, Martha. I think I'm afraid to know what the dolls in my room are saying... Looking forward to watching their progress!

  4. That's funny Martha! Miss Maddy J is delighted I've finished her undies......they are washed and drying. I'll give them a good ironing and work on a post this week.

  5. I have to say it was about time I got a little preaching to. Dollies reminded me to do my best, give them the best I have to offer, and probably most of all, to enjoy my time with them while making them, enjoy their smile, the eyes looking back at me and give them every chance to be wanted by another person besides me. P.S. and don't scrimp on anything in their clothes, and please give them some pretty lace and pleats on their panty loons.
