I really thought it would piece of cake to find tartans at my local antique and consignment shops. There must be plaid linens, lunchboxes, picnic baskets, thermos, etc to pick up and build a vignette around!
I was panicking by last Friday, with still no tartans.
Sooooo I am taking a "wee" bit of creative license with my "tartans" parade entries. Yes, ENTRIES, I have more than one!
First, my wee bonny lassie, is a 31" hard plastic, vintage, 1960's, walking doll by EEGEE Doll Company, wearing a consignment shop, green plaid, baby dress. (Dress purchased YESTERDAY!)
I had my poor daughter search a big rubbermaid tub in her closet for a Ty Beanie Baby Scottie dog for my lassie to hold in her photographs, but no luck. The black beanie baby dog I remembered was a black poodle.
Anyway, my wee bonny lassie is really MY lassie. She was my doll as a child. She usually stands next to Terri (another of my vintage dolls) in our den among my vintage toy collection.
