Peas, Carrots, Green Beans, and Gray Matter

This is the doll that made my stepmother incorrectly think that I was obsessed with Mary Poppins

I wasn’t. I was obsessed with 2 specific articles of clothing that came with this doll. My grandmother had an almost identical blue & white striped dress (except hers was sleeveless). It was her favorite summer dress. My grandmother also had a blue wool coat, similar to the doll’s coat. In my mind, this doll wasn’t Mary Poppins…she was my grandmother, in doll form.
