Look what Estella Dru found at Grandpa's house.
I had her tucked away in a cedar chest. Now she is a staple around here. (By the way, she is dressed in one of my old baby dresses.) When I got this doll it was A BIG DEAL. I think it was 1982, and Grandma could NOT find any where we lived. She and my mom and step dad collaborated, and another family member finally came up with this one for me in Wisconsin. I was a happy little girl.
Well, of course I had to make sure she was legit. And she was....
In case you're wondering, her name is Marlena Cecily. Doesn't she look like a Marlena Cecily?
I carried that baby around for YEARS as you can tell by her dirty little face. I absolutely love seeing Estella Dru with her today. I think she loves her as much as I did way back when.
Did you have a Cabbage Patch Kid? Do you still have it? Even better... can you remember their name? Please do tell.
