I don't remember loving dolls as a child. In fact, I think a lot of them have creepy little eyes. I did like Barbie but baby dolls really weren't my thing. However, I can remember fondly two dolls I loved. One was a doll my mother made that I named Miranda Cassandra (oy) and the other was a porcelain music box doll my Grandmother gave me that played "As Time Goes By." We lived in a flood zone, my parents still do, and I think both of these dolls didn't survive the many hurricanes but I'll have to ask Mom to be sure.
Recently, I thrifted not one but THREE dolls that I really love. Odd, right?
The first is this little sequin doll. Does anyone know anything about these? I'm guessing they were made from a kit and I know my mother has two that she also thrifted but that's all I know.
These two dolls came from that Ryan's Relics place. The one on the left is cloth with a plastic face and has a stamp on her back leg that says Poland. The other one is also plastic and I love her blue hair. :) That one in the back on the right is not a doll, she's a tree topper! Her paper wings are ripped and her hat is coming off but she was a steal for a quarter at a yard sale.
So it seems I like some dolls now. :)
A few notes:
First, I would like to thank EVERYONE who leaves comments here for me. It totally makes my day when they pop up in my inbox! I try to answer everyone that has an email address attached to it and also like to visit the blogs of those who don't have an email for me to respond to. I'm behind in my blog reading but I will be visiting you soon!!
Second, I now officially have a job! Yeah! My new boss is MUCH more laid back than my previous boss of six years so I'm looking forward to being less stressed. I plan to work from home maybe once a week but will be going back to the office starting tomorrow. With much better hours I might add. Thanks to everyone who asked after my employment situation!
Third, I sent off THREE swaps and didn't take pictures of them. NICE. Hopefully the recipients will post them and I'll share them with you. I did receive my apron from Sarah's vintage apron swap and I plan to photo it today to share. You can see the one I sent Wendy here.
And lastly, The Goodness Shop will reopen by Friday! Woo hoo!
