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.

Laura Graye is 23" tall
