Please stop by my Annabelle's Attic shoppes on Country Fried Primitives and Lemon Poppy Seeds to see some great gift ideas for the raggedy lover on your gift list....or something just for YOU!!!! I will get your purchases in the mail right away, wrapped nice enough for gift giving, too!! All dolls are for decorative purposes, and not intended to be toys for the young children on your list!! However, they would all be great for the older child to sit on a shelf in the bedroom, or lay on the bed, too!! Happy Shopping!! Happy Holidays!! Prim Raggedy Blessings, Trudy

Be Safe!! Have fun!! Send me all the Snickers!!! HAHHAAH!!!!! Happy Halloween, everyone!!! Raggedy Hugs!


Happy Halloween!! It is hard for me to believe that 2008 has progressed to this point in time already!!! Where has the year gone?? Whiz!! Flew right on by!! My show was a super success, with lots and lots of prim and raggedy dolls and other creations being given new homes!! It was wonderful to have return customers from last year, looking for that special doll for themselves and others!! Thank you everyone for shopping with me, and making my creations a part of your homes!!

It is with great sadness that DJ has chosen to close one of my favorite market venues....Dandelion Darlings. However, she has given a shoppe on another of her venues, Country Fried Primitives, to all the Darlings and you can now find me over there!! Here are a couple of my new raggedies found on Lemon Poppy Seeds and Country Fried Primitives!! Come on over and take a peek!! Happy Haunting!! Happy Shopping!!!

Too little time....too many tasks....toooo many things I WANT to do.....toooo many things I NEED to do......bottom line, this blog is badly neglected!! Must add another task to my looooonnnnngggg TO DO list, and post here more regularly!! I hope you will dash off to take a peek at the current raggedies on my Dandelion Darlings site, as well as the current listings on Lemon Poppy Seeds and Etsy, too!! We have been celebrating Christmas in July on Lemon Poppy Seeds, but those Christmas goodies will more than likely be replaced with other items within the next few days!! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you will hurry back soon!!!

Busy, busy, busy, busy........and having fun all along the way!! Piles and more piles of raggedies in various stages of "life" continue to grow as I work away in my world of raggedies and primitives!! I wonder which of these gals will be chosen to debut for the mid-month listings on Lemon Poppy Seeds???? I hope y'all will stop by to find out!!! Raggedy Hugs to all, Trudy

Hey, Everybody!!! Hop on over to my other primitive blog....Crows in the Attic Primitives....and get a chance to win a set of my prim Americana pears!!! Whooooooo!!! Whooooooo!!! You could be the lucky one!!!

Friday, May 2, 2008


My gosh!!! It is already May!!! Time flies when you're having sooo much fun makin' raggedies!!! And have I ever been makin' those raggedies!!! FUN!!! FUN!!!!

I hope that you will stop by one or all of my many raggedy venues and check them out!!! I have also been working toward getting some of my raggedy designs into published form...but the process is slow.....and tedious......and I have NOT made much headway....but am headed there!! I have come to the conclusion, the same conclusion that I had come to when I was a kindergarten teacher.....I need...yes NEED, an admin assistant!!

Although it is May, we here in the foothills of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, and up above as well, had another taste of winter on May lst....snow, big huge wet flakey snow....falling down and covering up the signs of Spring....but voila!!! Today is back to looking like Spring again!! I love the magic of Mother Nature!!

Thanks to all of you for stopping by for a visit here in My Raggedy World!! Hugs, Trudy

The debut of my raggedies on Lemon Poppy Seeds, in my shop called Annabelle's Attic, has happened!!! YEA!!!!!

Someone is shopping now...and has put two dollies in her shopping cart!! Whoooooo!! Whoooooooooo!!! How exciting for the dollies that will have new homes!! Thank you so much to those of you faithful customers from afar!! I love knowing that the dollies are going to loving homes, and especially homes with other dollies for them to play with!!

In just a few more days, Annabelle's Attic will be opening a Poppye Shoppe on the cool site Lemon Poppy Seeds!!! YES!! One of my opening listings will be this wonderful black raggedy, made from one of my designs, and ready and awaiting a new home!! She is made from muslin that has been painted, stained, baked and sanded for the primitive look. She has a stitched face, perle cotton hair, and button eyes. Her dress and pantaloons are made from coordinating 100% cotton prints and have been stained and baked as well! She has little raggedy stockings and black shoes that have been painted on, and baked and sanded. This little raggedy is about 15" tall, and can hang or sit. She is available for $34 which includes Priority Shipping in the USA!!


Party Girl Patti is ready for a celebration!! She has her party dress on, as can be seen in the cute print of party hats and party phrases such as "Celebrate" and "Life's a Party"!! She has wonderful 'loons of a pink print featuring squares and dots. Patti is a grand 17" tall! Her face is stitched, and she has great black button eyes. Her deep raggedy burgundy hair is handspun 100% wool, and has been securely stitched to her head. Patti's socks and shoes are handpainted, and she has been nicely stained, baked and sanded for the prim look!! Patti is made from my own design, which hopefully will be published soon! Patti will probably live with me until she debuts when Annabelle's Attic opens on the upcoming site Dandelion Darlings! However, should you desire to take her home, she is available for $42, which includes Priority Mail shipping with in the USA.

I'm sure that everyone has an alter ego. Some just don't let theirs out!! In an attempt to become more organized, I have decided that I would have a separate blog for my raggedy world side of me!! My original blog, Caw! Caw! (my Crows in the Attic Primitives blog) will remain as my main blog location, and I will post mostly raggedy stuff on this blog!! Sounds like a plan to me!! I would love for those of you that have linked my other blog to consider linking this one, too!! THANKS!! I hope you will enjoy visiting to see what is going on in my world of primitive raggedy dolls and such!! Raggedy Hugs, Trudy
