Cousin Ida Mae
I found a box of cards that someone gave me a few years ago. The series of cards was called 'Brown Sugar Babies'.
The cards were a collection of vintage photographs of babies and children from about the late 1800's to the early 1900's all dressed in their Sunday best.
The photos influenced some old fashioned doll designs that I wanted to do of little girls in lace dresses.
I introduced Martha Sue a few months ago and I finally finished her cousin Ida Mae. She is all dressed in blue lace and satin ribbons.
She's wearing lace trimmed socks and matching blue shoes and She has her favorite stuffed animal toy with her to keep her company.
