During our trip to New Orleans, Stella spent a lot of time creating and making projects with Lorrie. I mentioned before, I think, that Lorrie is a big time yard saler and the things that she finds are amazing! One of her great finds was a box of Melvin dolls. These were dolls used in the 1960’s to teach kids body parts – all I have to say is I want a box of Melvin dolls!!! Lorrie gave me a couple so that I can create my own.
