She's a Mooshka, by Zapf.
I have wanted a Mooshka since they first came out, but I'm cheap. (Read: Poor.) So, I haven't bought one until today, when I found this one at Goodwill for 49 cents. I love the colours used on the dolls. They're soft, but bright. Almost 'good enough to eat' type colours.
|She's around 13" tall. I got the cute little garden bench at Goodwill too, a couple of weeks ago.|
I like her, and she'll do, since I don't have any other one. But what I really want is a red haired one, Myra I think her name is...and one of those tiny plastic ones.
|She has paint brushes 'in' her pocket, and pencils drawing squiggles on her clothes.|
The story behind Mooshkas is that they were paper dolls that held hands and came alive. This is a little confusing, as they have stitch marks printed on them, as if they are supposed to look sewn.
|She's watching for a friend...|
That's all for today. Check in again tomorrow for another doll.
