Angela Finegan’s Upside Down, Cinderella Doll

1st-She serves as a maid to her step-mother and sisters

2nd- She goes to the ball!

The upside down Cinderella doll came from our aunt in Winchester, England. A neighbour of hers made the dolls from scraps of material.

One year, for each of our birthdays a doll arrived in the post to us in Ireland. I remember my sister and I acting out the Cinderella story with the dolls.
