Considered by many to be the single most recognized American Girl, Samantha Parkington is a classic! Today is her birthday – May 26, 1895 – so a virtual birthday party is in order!!
My Samantha getting ready for her birthday tea. The tea cart and all her treats are from The Queen’s Treasures.
Rhonda from Living a Doll’s Life sent in these photos of Samantha and Addy sharing some birthday treats.
From Liz – In honor of Samantha’s birthday, here is a picture of Nellie giving Samantha a big birthday hug!
From Stephanie – My Samantha on the day she arrived home. I bought her NIB off of eBay this past March, I was really lucky to get her new so long after her archival!
Also from Stephanie – My Zoey (#34) and Sam dressed for Summer. I made Zoey’s dress, and Sam’s dress is from Bestdollboutique on Etsy.
And Samantha with her hair freshly re-curled and dressed in a pretty blue ensemble from DebrasDollDreams on Ebay – also from Stephanie.
From Ellie – Mini Sam is celebrating her birthday! For this special occasion, Elenora bought her a dog! She called it Dot Face and always has it by her side!
And a Happy Birthday video for Samantha from Katie.
From Miriam – Nellie and I were up late baking because she wanted to surprise Samantha with petit fours.
From Carol M – Samantha is my oldest AG doll…19 years old! My Granddaughter Delaney made the “cake” and set all the dolls up for the Birthday Party photos.
From Carol M – Samantha’s party.
