Vacuum Doll by Raggedy Rhondas, full size

Raggedy Rhondas has been busy lately sewing and painting Vacuum Cover Mammy Dolls, and you can find some exclusive ones at Shairs Crows Nest on the web. Check her out. We also carry toaster covers, blender covers along with water covers and bagholder dolls. 

The Santas are coming along with some new editions to Raggedyrhondas and you can see these when they air here or check out facebook for raggedyrhondas. We hope you will join us there. 

We lost a dear friend and we will never be the same.  I do not think I have ever met anyone so dear and sweet as Sandy. Her heart was like an angel.  She was loved by so many and adored by her family and friends.  She leaves behind her dear sweet husband, daughter, son in law and grand baby.  She got one wish before she left us and that was to hold her sweet little grand daughter. Thank you Lord for the blessings you give us all as we are not promised tomorrow. 

In Memory of Sandy Schmidt
With every sunrise and every sunset you are remembered for the light you brought into this world.  We miss you and know that you are flying high with the angels now.
