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.
