This Raggedy Ann and Andy Ornaments note card is from a series of photographs I took of my beloved cactus which I decorate every year during the holidays. Each of the ornaments has a special meaning and they are all very precious to me. I decided to offer these cards on a larger scale since many of you have requested prints and cards of my photography and artwork. I am also available for family photo shoots. You may contact me here.
“What joy and happiness you have brought into this world! And no matter what treatment you have received, how patient you have been! What lessons of kindness and fortitude you might teach could you but talk … No wonder rag dolls are the best beloved! You are so kindly, so patient, so lovable. The more you become torn, tattered and loose-jointed, rag dolls, the more you are loved by children.”
-Johnny Gruelle’s preface to The Raggedy Ann Stories published in 1918 (P.F. Volland Co.)
