I don't but can think of a couple of things I wish I still had and wonder what ever became of them. How about you?
sort by best latest
That is so wonderful Rachel; wish Mom had done that for me but with four younger brothers I doubt she even thought of it!
Wow that would be something to hang onto. I had a bride doll I would love to still have with just all sorts of white lace and veil and high heel shoes and all she did was be propped in the center of my pillows making my whole room look good!
I know and I wish I knew what happened to her ...bet one of my two sisters snagged her LOL Kidding!!! I thought my daughter would love collectible dolls but she does not. Your doll sounds gorgeous and I bet one's eye was drawn immediately to her!
Wow Becky, Id say you are one in a million! I always thought I would like to collect dolls but I have no knowledge whatsoever and I imagine they have to be kept a certain way too?
I don't collect dolls, just old. I keep the dolls in an old trunk that was my great-grandmothers. It also contains a couple of old quilts that she made. That is a good way to keep them safe.
I use to be cray about toy dishes; sure wish I would come across some of those.
Wow, that's great Becky! You are too good at keeping all those things till now. Hats off!
Jackie, Go on ebay and search for toy dishes, antique. You will find lots of them. See if you see any that thrill you. Be careful how you bid and don't go crazy. I have several little sets that I keep in wall display cases.
Thank you Becky, that is a great idea too. It would be fun just to look at all of them!
Venkatachari, I love those things and just haul them with me when I move. I decorate my house with old things. I even have an old table that was my grandmother's, and I use it for many things.
Well that is a great thing. I have made doll clothes too and crocheted finger puppets; I may have to show them off sometime. Nothing collectible, of course.
That is great you could hang onto that.
Really Michael. Sounds like some of us, myself included, should be so thankful for things we took for granted.
Yes Jackie. It was all we knew, a lifestyle though being tiny in stature , regarded as very important in the process of living. To the parents, the grandparents, close relatives ,siblings as well as some neighbors I am grateful for creating stability
Wow; I don't think I have ever seen one myself! May be worth saving.
She ordered it from one of those everything- but-the-kitchen-sink catalogs.
I vaguely remember some doll, don't know if it was a joke one or what but it was a boy and you found that out when you squeezed its stomach. So maybe I have seen one. It rolled out and back in with air. lol
OMG I think that would have scarred me..lol. How long before you realized that's not quite how it works?
Been so long ago I only barely recall it but I think that was how it was suppose to work. It was tiny...the doll and all, lol, I do recall. I just assume maybe it was a joke doll. I just saw it once so must have belonged to someone I didn't see often
Peach that is something else. I do have some stuffed bears my husband bought me but not one thing from childhood! I did have four younger brothers though so maybe that explains it.
