Forever Girlfriends

Waifs abandoned and put up for disposal at an area yard sale, these sisters were rescued by Dempsey Essick's wife, Shelley, for only 10 cents each. .'1 thought the price read $10 when I ran up and grabbed them," Shelley said. "And I would have paid $10 each for them. They are among my most prized possessions. I even have it in my will that John gets the one in blue and Beth the one in red."

After a caring sponge bath, both girls emerged bright eyed and happy, ready to bring joy into the lives of every little girl of whatever age.

Dempsey Essick has placed the two dolls in a beautiful hand woven basket on a handmade table runner. His faithfu1 rendering of the fabrics as well as the wood grain of the basket is unexcelled. The viewer is tempted to touch the picture just to be reassured that it is indeed a flat watercolor print.
