Daily Art Stop - Dolls

My Mum often tells the story of when she was a child and two beautiful dolls came into the shops for little girls : one was the Princess Elizabeth doll, and the other was the Princess Margaret Rose.

Mum was a tomboy, but she said she wanted that Princess Margaret Rose doll soooo much.

Like lots of things in life though we don't always get what we want, and with a wistful look she tells me she never did get that doll.

So here's a Princess Margaret Rose doll Mum.

Oh Ann, what a heart-touching story, and the longing eyes of the child are perfect. Thanks so much for sharing that bit of your family history. Somewhere, Mum is enjoying her Margaret rose!
