Friday Show and Tell!

Kelli over at http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/ is hosting Friday Show and Tell. Head on over and join the fun.

I would like to show you my bride doll. She is very special to me as my Mother in Law made the dress for her out of the scraps from my wedding dress. You see, my dear mother in law made my wedding dress for me. This doll belonged to her when she was small.
She even put the bead details on the dolls dress.

My husband made a case for her and she proudly sits in our dining room.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
