I tried to paint the doll I played with when I was a small child (21 September 2010), using waterpaint. 200 GSMpaper. My grandchildren love to play with her when they visit us! ;-)

FEATURED in Pics for Kids

Ek het hierdie pop by my Pa present gekry toe ek ’n kind was. Sy is nou 58 jaar oud….ja regtig!! Sy het al ’n draai by die poppehospitaal gaan maak, nuwe hare en tande gekry en haar laplyf is netjies herstel waar die ouderdomskwale begin inkruip het! Wanneer my kleindogtertjies kom kuier, is dit heerlik vir hulle om met Marietjie te mag speel.

And this is a modern Barbie doll! She belongs to Isabella, my grandchild. (She painted it herself)

Toe sy van die skool af kom, moes sy ook haar poppie verf!!
