Today I wanted to share this cook Mom sold at the last Sturbridge Festival. The fun thing about the customer who bought her was that she was there with her daughter also a miniature enthusiast. Then, another mother and daughter pair came up to our table, so we were three sets of mothers and daughters!
One of Mom's favorite parts of making the dolls is finding the right props! When she saw this vegetable basket in Eileen Godfrey's shop, it seemed perfect. Though mom positioned her arms to hold the basket, I couldn't find the wax in time for the photograph.
She even has a tiny brooch at her throat, though it's quite plain- she's a cook, after all!
