So Jenny, one of my new pals over at Mama Drama, is one weird chiquita. She has a house full of stuff — collections, trippy paintings and cool machinery. I’d love to visit her! And if you ever thought you grew up in a hole-in-the-wall town, just ask her where she’s from.
Anyway, she’s having a contest where she’s giving away this crazy poodle portrait in exchange for us showing her some weird stuff in our houses. I don’t know if any of us is going to have anything weirder than the stuff she has, but I’m gonna give it a try.
Here’s my entry: An antique handmade Little Red Riding Hood doll that flips over to reveal Grandma and the Wolf under her dress. My mom received it as a baby gift when I was born and now Zoe and Lucy have it.
It’s a little creepy, and not very cuddly. I don’t remember ever playing with it (though I was pretty much a tomboy and didn’t play with dolls much) and I haven’t really seen Zoe and Lucy play with it. Cool idea, but a little creepy in the execution.
