Gracing the 2017 Thanksgiving dolledition.com blog is this Madame Alexander 1957 Cissy "Gardening." Mid century fashion had an outfit for everything, and every outfit had its hat. This 1957 Cissy "Gardening" is in coral twill overalls and a silk baby blue blouse with it's accent bow. A gold strap and woven straw shoulder bag is the perfect choice for the dedicated gardener. Gold high heels and flower accented sunglasses are the finishing touches to this remarkable ensemble reflecting a 1950s attitude to fashion and feminine perfection. As our Cissy sets the tone for the festivities, may she put a smile on your face - and please, have a blast celebrating your own Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving - traditions give us an anchor to the past and the present. We hope, after a point in life, the future won't be too far off from what and who we know and love. All are welcome to stop by here... just for a moment or to linger. So many have joined me on this adventure with dolls, their research and to help create some fun and fantasy - and once in a while, a little magic. Life's journey can get rocky. Dolledition is kind of a neutral territory where there is a chance to exhale. It certainly has been just that for myself. I've inserted many elements of new and old friends into this project - rather they know it or not. Often it's subtle. Sometimes it is a homage to their help or inspiration. Onward and forward - I smell adventures for 2015!
