See a Penny and Pick it Up……

image
Heidi came outside to enjoy a sunny day. Β Though it is windy, it is also warmer temperatures than we have seen for a while which is nice!

image
Heidi is a delightful repaint by Janet Myhill-Dabbs. Heidi is wearing a very pretty dress by Ruthsdolls and leather shoes that were made by Jean Jensen. πŸ™‚

image
Heidi is holding a fuzzy bear and enjoying the day.

image
Suddenly, she noticed something shiny laying on the ground. Oh my Heidi, it is a shiny penny! Heidi said “Mommy, we must pick it up! The saying is: See a penny and pick it up and all the day you’ll have good luck. I want us to have good luck!”

image
Heidi reached for the penny and said with excitement “Penny!”

image
Then, suddenly Heidi was joined by her newest sister! “Hi there Heidi, it’s me, Penny. Did you call for me?”

image
Heidi was so glad to see Penny. She said “No, I found a penny and I picked it up and I was so excited that I exclaimed PENNY. Now I will be lucky all day! See, with you joining me, I am already lucky dear Penny.” ❀

image
“Oh thank you dear Heidi. I feel lucky too!” said Penny.

image
Then Heidi gave Penny her penny to tuck in her belt for luck. Β She also gave Penny her fuzzy bear to keep as her own. πŸ™‚

image
“Thank you dear sister, look, I am already lucky and I love my fuzzy bear very much!” ❀

image
Penny came to us from Shelly’s site. She is a very early Gotz girl with no mold line and was probably made in 1965. She has yellow eyes with lashes and eye shadow and gorgeous soft and shiny red hair. Β She is also a button nose girl. Some may call her a no-nose or a monkey face girl I like button nose better and I think it is a much more flattering word to use to descibe this special girl. ❀

Penny came to us wearing an original Girl Guide outfit that was made to look like a Swiss Guide outfit of the 1960’s. πŸ™‚

image
As nice as this outfit is, we have safely wrapped it and stored it away for another day. Penny is so excited to try on a new outfit!

image
Penny is wearing a lovely outfit made by Fanny Boiten of Switzerland. The shoe maker is unknown. I love this outfit! ❀

image
I think these colors look so nice on Penny. πŸ™‚

image
Bringing in the turquoise color at the neckline, sleeve cuffs and the waistband of the apron really compliments these Fall colors beautifully. ❀

image
Happy Fall dear Penny!

Happy wishes to you for the rest of the week to come. πŸ™‚ xxx

  1. What a lovely pair of girls Ginger, you have such great taste in Sasha dolls, you really do. I really love Heidi, she’s so pretty, Janet did a really good job on her. And little Button Nose Penny is super sweet, isn’t she!
    I particularly like Penny’s new outfit on her, the colouring and the style work so well on her. Just perfect!!!!

    • Hi Sharon and thank you for the very sweet comments. I love Heidi too and it was so nice to get her out of her farm pants and into a dress. It was the first time that she has worn a dress having been in two different farm pants outfits–poor dear!

      Dear Penny is indeed very sweet and I am glad you like her outfit. I do agree that those colors are perfect for her! Sending you big hugs my friend! πŸ™‚ xxx

  2. Well Heidi is a gorgeous girl dressed so beautifully ( I love those dresses by Ruth) and looking pretty out in the sun and then she finds not only a shiny Penny but a new sister called Penny.
    What a Gorgeous Button nosed girl’s arrived at Cow Creek! She looks almost as new as the penny Heidi found!
    Love her in her new autumn outfit the colour suits her beautifully.

    A love post to have appeared in my inbox for me to admire. Love both of these girls but that button nose…sigh….. :)xxxxx

  3. Thank you Dee, we are thrilled that Penny has come here to stay with us. Yes, she is in super condition especially for an early girl. I love the soft silky feel of the Gotz girl’s hair, don’ t you? I was reading your post of your fabulous, ever growing button nose family and I am really enjoying watching them as they get to know one another and develop personalities. I now have two—Peg and Penny. The folks here on Cow Creek are smiling now! πŸ™‚

    I am so happy you like both of these dear girls but I somehow knew, the button nose would speak to you and be your favorite. πŸ™‚ xxx

  4. What a lovely post, I am so happy that Heidi was the first to really welcome Penny to the farm, I love the whole story of the penny! I much prefer button nose too, it is more flattering for such a sweetie. She looks beautiful in her lovely Fanny creation too. xx

    • Thank you Janet. I am glad you liked this post. I am glad Heidi finally has a dress on and she looks so pretty too. I love her eyes! ❀

      Penny is a real joy to dress and her hair so nicely falls into place with little to no coaxing. She is finding a lot of sisters to play with and is happy! πŸ™‚ xxx

  5. Heidi and Penny!!
    Oh. My. GOODNESS!! Both these girls are truly wonderful Ginger. I remember seeing Heidi when Janet showed her upon completion. I was unaware she was yours. Lucky you!! Such gorgeous OOAK eyes!! I love her wind blown hair too! And seeing her wear the dress by Ruth is always a plus. Your no-nose Penny is gorgeous too!! I love her thick healthy hair. And I totally love the outfit by Fanny Boiten!! That hat is so unique. Congrats on having them both Ginger. They are fabulous!! Great penny story Ginger. Love it!!

    • Hi Cathy! I am so happy you liked seeing these two girls together. Heidi looked so nice in her farm pants that it took time for me to try a dress on her. Penny is a very pretty girl and I just love her hair! Fanny’s outfit is fantastic and I love it on Penny. I am glad you like it too. I knew I would name her Penny even before she arrived. She must have spoken to me telepathically. So glad she is here! ❀ xxx

  6. Super seeing sweet Heidi again after first meeting and admiring her at the Sasha Celebration Weekend when she was rearing a replica studio farmgirl’s outfit. I love how her hair has been caught up just like Sasha herself did with some of her studio dolls. That style has an era of being both old fashioned and trendy. Her JJ shoes are just perfect with that Ruthsdoll’s dress!
    Had rather forgotten about that Penny rhyme but it has now reminded me of how my husband and I often used to have a little competition each year about who could find the most money on the ground/pavements when out walking/shopping etc. At the end of the year one would be delcared the winner and both the collections would be put into a Church’s charity box.
    Good conection (and then leading into the introduction) between your new delightful Button nosed girl, Penny and the shiny new penny. Again the Frances Boiten outfit is a perfect eye colour match to Penny’;s eyes. (I am particularly taken with her photo against your neighbouring hills.)

  7. Hi Kendal and thank you for the lovely comments. It was nice to see Heidi in a dress and I like her look very much. Her pulled up hair was fashioned by Janet and I love it in that style. I plan to keep it up for now. πŸ™‚

    That rhyme came to me when I was dressing Penny. I still stop today and pick up pennies lying on sidewalks and parking lots. I am amazed at how many people walk by money and will not stop to pick it up. Perhaps it is a sign on the times. When I was young, you would not find extra coins lying around both at home or away. At that time, a Coke was 10 cents a bottle and a dip or scoop of ice cream was 5 cents! Everyone counted their pennies. My beloved Granny used to say “If you watch your pennies, your dollars will take care of themselves.” So, I pick up pennies! πŸ™‚

    I am happy you like the petite Penny. Fanny’s outfit is perfect for her. Thank you for mentioning that photo of Penny which I took holding her up in the air against the sky and hills. I almost didn’t post it because it was so different but then decided to share it for that very same reason–it’s different. πŸ™‚ xxx
