Humpty Dumpty Sat On A Shelf....

A local lady makes these little Humpty Dumpty dolls for Helen's Children's Shop here in town and I am obsessed with them!  
She just makes them in whatever gingham fabric colors she can find, so I stalked Helen's until I saw a hot pink one! (mostly they carry the baby pink gingham, and I LOVE the HOT pink!)


Right now Humpty is just hangin out on this shelf I scored from HomeGoods next to the custom bookends (that will be moved to her dresser once K is potty trained).  I bought the leggy ballerina girl on the street on a trip to Italy back in the day...I think she'll fit right in!  


I got an email that K's bedding will be arriving next week and I am SO excited!  I went ahead and ordered a matching changing pad cover because I think we have a few more months of using this dresser as a changing table until K is potty trained (had to hang the mirror higher because of this for now as well).  Did I mention that I am in love with the Haylan dresser from Restoration Hardware Baby and Child?  Why do I have to love all of their stuff so much???






PS- Did you guys have a good 4th of July?  We played it low key this year....


Of course K would not stop moving for me to get a pic of her little patriotic outfit....sigh.


and she thought she was big stuff getting to hang out after dark watching fireworks with the neighbor kids!  


Happy Friday to all of you!!

  2. My jaw dropped open when I saw the image at the top of this post. I had almost the exact same humpty dumpty doll as a little girl and the two of us were completely inseparable. I called her Baby and she sported red gingham. I wore holes through her arms by running them between my fingers as I went to sleep, but when my mother lovingly sewed a new pink and white striped option I refused to use it. The original is always best. My older sister had one as well (red stripes I think?) that she once accidentally left in our hometown bank, which of course was discovered at bedtime long after the bank had closed. My parents looked up the name of the bank president and convinced him to unlock the doors so Baby (we weren't too original) could be retrieved.
    Anyway, I had such warm memories of my Baby that I had to share. I hope your little girl loves her doll just as much as I did!

  3. I love Humpty! It is the perfect baby shower gift. I am going to have to send my bestie who is a Nashvillian out to pick me up one. Can you tell us where the store is located?

  5. What a blast from the past! Thanks for sharing the pics. My Grannie used to make them for family and friends. Such sweet memories via a humpty dumpty doll. Tell that lady who made yours she should open an etsy shop. :)

  6. It's looking great! I am wondering where you found your fabric for the shower curtain. I have decided to make one for my daughter's room and need some pattern...are you making yours?

  7. Love! Love! Love! I was just online a few days ago trying to find the Humpty pattern that my Grannie used to have. She made a Humpty Dumpty for all the grandkids! I actually had her original pattern, but my dear sisters trashed it when they were cleaning out the garage!
