Laura Graye ~ Primitive Settler Prairie Doll

A tale of one named
Laura Graye

Laura Graye a plain young lass, working hard amongst the prairie grass
She feeds the chickens and milks the cow
Makes the butter and helps Pa plow
Planting the fields for a harvest come Autumn
This is Laura Graye

Laura Graye a plain young lass, gives her Mother not one word of sass
A hearth to clean and floors to sweep
Clothes to scrub and rugs to beat
Keeping up a tidy home, a young girls work is never done
This is Laura Graye

Come Sunday, not so much work to do
A day to praise the family and the Good Lord too
This is Laura Graye

This early style Prairie Doll is handmade.  Drab prairie grays for Laura's dress, apron and bonnet.  A touch of prairie blue for her sash.  Her bonnet is a gathered & brimmed prairie bonnet.  Laura has been mended, patched and aged for an old timey look, her clothing alike.

Too cute not to love, now that's for sure

Cole won't take up too much space at all
