Please pass this on to the wonderful lady and her husband who made the "re-incarnation of Posie" possible.
I can't tell you how surprised and delighted I was when Elizabeth (my incredible sister) arranged for my Mum to "return" Posie to me after all these years.
When I was a little girl in America my mum must have given Posie to me when I was probably 3. Several times
over the years, my Mum had to take her to the doll's hospital to get her head put back on and one time Posie never came back.
My mum told me that Posie was still in the doll's hospital and every so often I would ask "is Posie not fixed yet?". The years disappeared, as they do, and every so often I would think about Posie and wonder what became of her. I remembered her blue eyes (which opened and closed), her legs which could be bent so that she could walk, sit or pray, her beautiful hair (which had a fringe which we put a curler and pin in to curl) and her gorgeous face made of soft rubber.
She was so special to me that I remembered practically every detail about her so I was absolutely overwhelmed to have her "returned" to me. I always thought she was called "Posey" (Based on Rosey Posey - after my mum who is called Rose) but now that I have read all about the Posie dolls, the doll you sent to Elizabeth has even more of a story to tell! She now has pride of place on my dressing table in my bedroom.
I can't thank you enough for helping Elizabeth to arrange for my Mum to give me this unbelievably special gift. She will be so treasured and her history will continue.

Lil Dress is clean and no germs.
Found a small hole in the slip which
is under the dress in the photos here. I ironed
a patch on it on the inside of the slip. I also ironed
Now here is something to tell
you...I have never seen IDEAL do this but the
panties never had elastic in them. They are tied
on with the string that came on them. Silly me,
I took the string out and started to put the elastic
in the already made hem...then as I was trying to put
the elastic in the openings and since the tiny elastic
I have here would not go in in any way because of the
tiny opening...I had to re-string the original string
back into place.
These panties are indeed rare. (No
Charge On Them)
