The Unique Black Sheep
Coming Soon!
Meet "Make-do Maggie" APP 2014 Summer Collector Series Prairie Doll! She is the16th doll in the APP collection!

  Maggie got her nickname, “Make-do Maggie” because she is always making something from nothing. She is very frugal, and loves decorating her home with things that she makes.

  She has been out cleaning her yard after a VERY long winter. It seems spring never sprung and now here is summer. She has her burlap bag filled with rakings and is looking at the pile of twigs she gathered and dreaming of twig furniture that she will make. She wears her favorite tattered homespun dress and the bonnet she made from old toweling. 

  Maggie is ready to sit for a while and read her new summer issue of A Primitive Place. She will be getting lots of ideas for decorating.

  Make-do Maggie is about 10 inches tall, accented with her burlap sack and her APP magazine. 

  Signed and dated by Lana Testa exclusively for A Primitive Place magazine. $33.00 includes travel fare to most states in the USA. You can place your order through our website or email Lana at Winterberryprimz@aol.com.
