Be still my heart

American Girl
A doll collector's husband recently did a double take when he saw a photo of American Girl's new Winter Chalet.

He thought it was a dolly-sized moonshine still.


Stills have long been used to produce perfume and medicine, water for pharmaceutical use, to separate and purify different chemicals, and most famously, to produce distilled beverages containing alcohol.

(Momma is well acquanted with stills since she grew up in the Appalachian foothills and listened to her grandmother's stories of the speakeasies she frequented in the '30s.)

I must admit the idea has possibilities since we Vinyl Americans are too young to legally purchase certain liquid beverages.

Hmm, where's that copper tubing of mine....
