This memory popped into my head when I saw the rag dolls made by Jodi Cain in her Etsy shop Tattered Rags. Cain's dolls are similar to my grandmother's dolls except they wear their unhappiness on their sleeves. There isn't a smile to found among them and I appreciate they're honesty. It's like they're daring us to play with them.

The more I look at Cain's dolls the more I want to hug them! Cain has been selling her hand-stitched dolls since 2004. She has a gallery of her work on her website tatteredrags.net and she'll make a custom doll for you.
