My mother's birthday is coming up this Thursday. I'm not good at keeping surprises so I just couldn't help myself. I had to give her the gift I made her. She loves and collects antique Mammies so I made her one. It's actually the largest doll I have made so far. It made her so happy and she cried too. We are both going through a tough time together. It hurts my mother a lot to have found out I have hypoglycemia, but we are on the path of getting me to feel tip top pretty soon. She just wishes she had know sooner, and well so do I.

I don't have the measurements for the Mammie but I did take two shody photos of my doll. I'm going to start making my dolls much larger than before now. It's the same concept and I'm not sure why it hadn't dawned on me before. My next creation will be a larger version of a Day of the Dead bride I sold a few months ago. It was a tiny couple, bride and groom. I hope the lady who bought them is very happy with my babies. She will be about the same size as this but dressed as a bride. I might start making more Mammies for my shop too. She is too darn cute. She needs more of her kind out there.
