Baby Caroline

This pretty little porcelain doll is named Caroline and she was handmade by my Grandmother. The vintage hanky bonnet was given to me by my Mother-in-Law when my first child was born. The dress is also vintage and the poinsettia dresser scarf was hand embroidered many years ago by someone I do not know. I treasure hand embroidery, babies, vintage linens and my dearest Grandmother.

Thank you, Pam. My Grandmother's name is Beatrice and she'll be 90 yrs. old in January. She has a beautiful collection of porcelain dolls that she created. She sews clothing for the dolls and is also an oil painting artist. Thanks so much for posting!
