Angela Young of Upper Marlboro displays a teacup doll holding a small hymnal and wearing a red dress at last month’s 30th annual Southern Maryland Doll Show at the Clarion Inn in Waldorf.

Young said the teacup doll, which she made with a wooden head, a wooden peg body and a handmade cloth dress, reminds her of her late mother, Delores Rivers.

“She was peaceful, and she always wore red,” Young said. “We had to sing in the choir when I was growing up in church, and I remember singing from a hymnal.”

Young said she has been making dolls for about 15 years.

The Southern Maryland Doll Show typically alternates between competitive and educational shows, said show co-chairwoman Lynn Buonviri. This year, the show was educational. One display featured dolls made in the United States during the 20th century.
