Call off the search!!! I've found her! My new friend, China Green, is a shy little thing. Never says a word! I picked her up at the flea market in Warrenton. She kept me company on the ride home. A wonderful listener! As you can see, I talked her head off!!! She's real pretty and hard worker too! I love her attire! Boy, does she know how to layer! Just look at all that jewelry! From the charm bracelets (turned necklace), turqouise beads, and black pearls to the dangling old salt shaker, complete w/ typed scripture (You are the salt of the earth...Matthew 5:13). Oh! and I almost forgot the bead chain full of old keys.....a sure sign that she is well trusted.

And what do you think about her green olive tafetta skirt hiked-up just a peek to reveal several lovely petticoats?

Also you'll find some all important details at her waist......

Please notice the wide brocade belt tied into a knot, where she has pinned her Indiana State Fair Employee #318 badge(where she has proudly worked for many years). And last, but certainly not least, you'll find a tiny Order pad & pencil where she kindly jots down any and all requests. She is quite a gal!
