In my last post about doll collecting I mentioned my porcelain Anne of Green Gables doll, which I also thrifted several years back.  Here she is!

I have loved the Anne of Green Gables series of novels -- which were written by Lucy Maud Montgomery and the first novel was published in 1908 -- since I was very young.  I also grew up watching the 1985 television movie adaptation with Megan Follows as Anne.  (The most recent adaptation, Anne with an E on Netflix, is also quite good in my opinion.)  

I found this porcelain doll at Value Village several years ago.  She is complete but it was very clear that someone -- most likely a child -- had messed with her hair.  So I put her hair back into the signature pigtail braids and she is as good as new.  I did some research on this doll and discovered that she was made in the studios of Anne of Green Gables Heritage Design for a company called Avonlea Traditions.

I adore her and have her on display on top of a cabinet in my studio.  I also plan to re-read the series of Anne novels sometime in the near future.
