Sweet all American girl

Sweet Allegiance is a big girl. She is thirty six inches from the top of her head to the bottom of her red wool shoes. She wears a vintage baby undershirt and an antique linen petticoat. Her skirt is an antique woven homespun wool blanket with a red antique wool waistband. Her red shoes are her most prized possession and she is always willing to show them off.

Sweet Allegiance carries her wool doves in an old woven basket and is looking forward to releasing them at the big 4th of July picnic...right after the band plays The Star Spangled Banner.  She's named her doves Benny, Soldier Boy and Hero, and is nervous about their welfare once they are on their own.  

Sweet Allegiance is a true believer in the philosophy that a little red lipstick and a single rose, strategically pinned to your blouse, can brighten even the most ordinary of days.

Enjoy the evening,
