I have loved dolls, history, and the Victorian Era since I was little and can credit my grandmother for that. As a young girl she gave me a Godey’s Fashion print for August 1870 from my great, great Aunt Flossie. I was captivated by the dresses and became hooked. I just love to research everything and anything about the Victorian Era. I also love to design Victorian dolls. I hope you enjoy my Victorian Dolls, Victorian Traditions,The Victorian Era, and Me blog.

The Proper Scarecrow, Nancy! Victorian Scarecrow Doll

"The Proper Scarecrow, Nancy!" knows she is a scarecrow, but that doesn't mean she can't be Victorian and can't be the proper lady at all times. After all, Victorians are well known for their manners and etiquette and Nancy has plenty of that. She is always correcting her brother, "A Refined Scarecrow, Jimmy!" His manners are atrocious and his language skills - well, let's just say he has a lot to learn.

Nancy knows that she has been well trained and has no doubt she can teach her brother how to behave in a mannerly fashion. She is so confident she is even willing to teach him how to dance. And, if you've ever taught your brother how to dance - well, you know how that goes!

"The Proper Scarecrow, Nancy" is a 12" Victorian scarecrow from our new seasonal Victorian line. Nancy is a self-standing scarecrow cloth doll. She has an embroidered and watercolor pencil painted face. She is wearing a cotton slip with multiple layers of lace trim, a lace trimmed blouse, Multiple panel skirt with multiple layers of lace trim and gatherings, lace trimmed and lined felt jacket with a collar and cuffs, and a lined and lace trimmed felt bonnet with bows. She has a full head of wonderful string hair that just matches her outfit to the tee. She is definitely right proud of her appearance.

Nancy knows that when she is out in public she always has to look her best. You just never know when your picture is going to be taken and Nancy, the proper scarecrow, always wants to look her best. After all, she does have a reputation for class and elegance to maintain.

I hope you like "The Proper Scarecrow, Nancy!" Her brother "I'm a Refined Scarecrow, Jimmy!" will be released tomorrow. Nancy's got her work cut out for her to get him ready. He's just not as refined as he needs to be - at least, according to Nancy! Of course, her standards are a bit high!
