Some of my very favorite stories as a child were the Raggedy Ann & Andy stories.
On library day I would scour the shelves for Raggedy Ann books.
Believe it or not, I never owned a Raggedy Ann or Andy Doll
until last year when I found this pair of 24" dolls in a thrift store.
Their expressions were so sweet, I couldn't leave them behind.
A couple months later I found these 2 lovelies, also in a thrift store,
(In Las Vegas of all places)
The Green doll is 14" and Ann is 18"
Obviously, this Ann needed an Andy
I found this Andy on ebay, but his outfit didn't match Ann's
I had this check fabric and made him a new suit, tie and hat.
and here they are together
We named this girl Belle.
We believe she is made from an Edith Flack Ackley pattern.
These are all 8 & 9 inch Raggedys, which are actually
Dolls for our AG dolls.
Very cute 9" Alice in Wonderland Raggedy.
Sarah and Betsy 6" dolls from Colonial Williamsburg.
9" Holly Hobby
And a 9" Country Andy. I am still looking for an Ann for him.
(although, I think he has eyes for Alice)
Of course, I have a collection of Raggedy Ann Books.
