Nope, nothing AT ALL.
But the title of this blog is 'not a lot else' so that's my excuse!! It's also craft work too - sewing in fact!!!
Now for the story. I was given a doll's cot when I was a wee girl - about 150 years ago!!! I can't remember now what it looked like then and as we didn't have a camera I have no pictures (oh, how things have changed, eh?). My sister (Sally) remembers playing with the cot and loving it too.
Well, when I produced two girls of my own (poor things - but they survived!) I still had the cot and re-covered it with the fabric you can see below. Horrid, isn't it? Since then it's been stored in several lofts yet again and has gone through some trauma living in those on it's own during the past 40+ years since my kids outgrew it!!!
Two and a half years ago I was lucky enough to be granted my first granddaughter after three delightful grandsons who are 'real boys' and wouldn't have been interested in dolls!!!! I then rescued the cot and brought it home just over a year ago.
Now is the time for it to morph into another era of it's life. I suppose it's an antique (like me) but it's valueless (also like me) as it's not got the original covering (heck, nor have I!). I've never seen anything like it anywhere else. The second picture shows it in it's 'raw' state.
