Belle's Dolls, the early years

One of the first dolls Mother made.

Back then, Belle's Dolls was not yet established and the series of First Ladies and Presidents that Mother sculpted and for which Daddy cast molds weren't even a dream.

They'd made puppets when I was little, carved and dressed them, but this was an Island Pottery doll.  The photo was taken on the picnic table in front of my folks' house on Fox Road.
