A Doll A Week 11/52: Scottish

This Madame Alexander doll was given to me when I was very young.  I don't remember how old I was, but she was a "collectible" doll, not one to play with.  She seemed like a great doll to collect for a girl whose family name could be traced back to the Scottish isle of Iona.  She was packed away for a number of years, but now she is out of the box and on a shelf with some other companion dolls.  The poor girl lost her shoes somewhere along our life journey together, and has a little dirt shows her age, but she is still a special treasure.

She's sweet. I'm missing your dolls of the week. Hope you're okay.

I'm glad you like my ADAW posts. My grandmother passed away early last Monday morning and we had to return to her home town for her funeral so that she could be buried with my grandfather. She was 89 years old and suffering from Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) lung disease for many years. She went very quickly and did not suffer very long. I was blessed enough to have seen her on Sunday when she seemed to be doing okay. She is in Heaven with the Lord and other departed loved ones now. Life will be returning to normal and I should have ADAW post to share later today!
Thanks for your concern.

Oh, I responded on your new little one post before I saw this. I'm glad you got to have time with your grandmother before she passed away and that she is now free from suffering and with the Lord. I am so sorry, though, that you have to miss her for now. Brushing up against the transformation from earth to heaven always leaves me reflective. I do hope you are well.
