A Visit to the Cabbage Patch

You cannot be a special travelling doll visiting the state of Georgia without paying a visit to Babyland General, the birthplace of the Cabbage Patch Dolls.  It is quite an event!

There were so many dolls to look at. 

These are the 1st two dolls made by Mr. Xavier Roberts.  We were told he still hand signs the cloth dolls.  His signature on the dolls' bums is what inspired me to put an apple on my dolls!  Can you see how much they are worth now?  Wowsers.

All of the cloth dolls here are hand made by local artists. 


An original Andy Warhol painting hangs in one of the nurseries.  Lots of famous people have visited here over the years.

The Great Cabbage Patch, where baby dolls are born. 

Lots of fun!

Anna Ruby

We decided to take Lunette to go and see Anna Ruby.  "Who is Anna Ruby?"  Lunette wondered.  The girls packed her up in the papoose, so she knew we were in for quite a trip! 

And Nanci came along for the ride.  That Nanci, always loves to be in the middle of everything. 

We stopped at a placard and the girls started reading it out loud.  Turns Our Anna Ruby is a waterfall in The north Georgia mountains, near the start of the Chattahoochee River.  "This is going to be so cool!"  Nanci exclaimed.   Lunette just giggled. 

"Is this Anna Ruby Falls?"  Lunette asked.  Nanci giggled.

"Is THIS Anna Ruby Falls?"  Lunette asked again.  The girls said, "No, not yet, we have to climb a
little more."

Lunette was getting really excited.  "IS THIS ANNA RUBY FALLS?!?"  She yelled.  It was getting louder.  "Patience Lunette," the girls answered, "Almost there."

This is Anna Ruby Falls.  Breathtaking. 

Hmmm.... wonder what those two are whispering about?  Wait until they see where we are going next!
