Gourd Dolls

On May 2 we will go to an 18th Century Faire in Sumner County TN at Bledsoe’s fort. These little girls will be looking for new homes. All the fabrics and yards are colored with plant dyes. Below is a close up of the mama’s skirt which is decorated with “pounded flowers.” Yes, a hammer, bleeding heart blossoms, fabric, and a wooden board. Loud but fun.
