During a visit before last Christmas, my daughter and her family went with me to an estate sale.
The woman whose estate was being sold apparently had numerous moving dolls, all holding lighted candles, on her front enclosed porch each Christmas season.
Each doll was about three feet tall and in pristine condition.
My little granddaughter fell totally in love with a precious brunette doll dressed in a fancy red velvet and white silk dress.
I favored an equally fashionable one, with blonde hair, dressed in a satin dress in my favorite color, pink, with cranberry colored velvet accents.
Truly, the lace, satin and velvet dresses of the darling dolls were stunning, right down to their lacy sleeves.
My daughter decided to forgo buying a doll, however, much to the chagrin of my granddaughter.
The little lady in pink came home with me.
After my daughter and her family went home, I returned to the estate sale and bought the doll dressed in red and white, for my granddaughter.
Both "fashionistas", which she deemed sisters, joined us this past Christmas and added extra charm to our holiday celebrations.
The little $10 sweethearts are going to live with me year-round and my grand will play with them when she comes to visit.
DO YOU LOVE BUYING THINGS YOUR CHILDREN OR GRANDCHILDREN LOVE?
