Fragile

She quietly sits on a chair in the corner of the room and patiently watches life buzzing around her.


She is very observant and notices even the tiniest of details.

 She is made of porcelain down to the boots on her feet.  She wears a simple gown with details of tiny buttons and lace.



She often wonders if anyone really ever knows she exists, yet she humbly knows she has much to offer.


She may be fragile, but
her heart is full and beautiful.


As she is a kind and compassionate soul, she offers to share her heart to anyone who is in need of love.


There is where you will find her
true beauty.

Danielle

Love her! I have begun to develop a real appreciation for these types of dolls. Since opening my antiques booth I have bought and sold a couple of them. I believe they are often called "Dolly Madison" Dolls. I am featuring a little tiny one for White Wednesday this week. Yours is absolutely gorgeous!

What a lovely doll! I really liked the way you told her story!! This is a bitter/sweet post for me, I once had a doll just almost like her, she was destroyed in a move, to pieces...crushed.
My grandmother gave her to me. This post brought back memories of my favorite doll! Thank you, and by the way...Happy Mother's Day!!

Oh, I love Charlotte, what a sweet sweet face! How lucky for you to find her and in such wonderful condition! ~Lorraine ♥♥♥

Donna said...

Well, Danielle,

'She' is stunning! She really should have a name, like Miss Margarette, Lilly Bell, Rhetta May, Lady Suzanna, or - Miss Polly Anna who is always ready to make everyone feel great, who sees the world through rose colored glasses, always says the nicest things, positive, helpful and full of love!

Even without a name, 'She' is magnificent! Thank you for sharing her with us.

Blessings, Danielle ~ Have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs,
Donna

SHE is gorgeous! What a lovely post :) Did you know that the flat head and orange stripe above the lid means she is a very old and expensive doll?
