Vintage Valentine Doll Swap

Last week I posted a photo of the doll I made for Vintage Valentine Doll Swap.  When she arrived in Russia, Lena, her new mom, named her Valya.  You can read more about how I created Valya here.  Her dress is a vintage feed sack and she is holding hearts made from a vintage quilt top made by my great-grandmother.

Today for Vintage Thingie Thursday, I am showing you two picture of Valya as she learns about her new home in Russia.  There are even more pictures here on Lena's blog.

Looks like Valya loves her new home.  I'm envious of all the places she is visiting in her new Russian home.  Thanks to Lena for providing these photos.  And to think I almost didn't sign up to do an international trade.  What fun and I'm awaiting my doll from Lena.  Wonder what Arizona sights she would like to see????

I am sure that little doll is enjoying her new home. I love her name. It may take her awhile to learn to speak your language.

The pictures all over town are wonderful. She looks like she's just as happy as can be in her new home.
