Dolls and Sentiment

This is not an illustration from a vintage book.

It is a "touched up" photo of my sentimental "vignette."

The child's chair was my aunt's.  I bought it at her daughter's yard sale. 
The bear was a gift to my son on his first Christmas, over 21 years ago.
I made the hat on the bear for my son, to keep the sun off his fair skin.  He has outgrown the bear and the hat.
The porcelain baby doll was a gift from my Mom, who bought it at a yard sale, and gave it to me during a visit at my sister's camp.  It was the last doll my Mom gave me.
The rag doll was in my friend's stuff that was left behind when her family moved out of the house where she had her last illness.
Sentimental, aren't I?

Joke's on Me!

I've borrowed this book from the local
library several times.  I keep hoping to
find it at a book sale, or something.
A search on Ebay unearthed these
two copies, plus more.  These were
about the same price.  They seemed
to be the same book, but I wasn't sure,
so I bid on both. 
Startlingly, I got them both.
(he heee!)

New Doll, New Project


Not much of a project, really.
Fix hair
find or make different clothes
she's clean

Blue Boys







What started as an idea for a background for a doll shoot, got a bit out of hand...
                                                               ...it was fun but I think I'll get back to the other kind of dolls, now.

Did She Find Her?

My friend bought a marked Alexander doll.  We've been trying to find her online.  I'm pretty convinced that she has been successful!  Any opinions?

Time to clear out.

guessed that they are not staying!
