Oh, You Beautiful Doll

Things we love in childhood remain with us forever.

At least I believe that.

My love for dolls as a child became my obsession as an adult.

Not a single day goes by when one of my "brood" of dolls fails to make me smile.

Long before Christmas buying for others began, I took a stroll in a thrift store.

It's what I call "recreational shopping." 

The most precious little lovie, dressed in my favorite color, pink, caught my eye.

Oh, this little delicate darling was a real beauty and looked quite Victorian.

She was less than $10.

Instantly, I was transformed into being child again.

The dolly came home with me that fateful day and she's made me happy ever since.

Can't think of a single thing. I guess if I had to think of something it would be reading a book. Read many of those in my childhood and still do today.

Susan - she kind of reminds me of you! Beautiful from the outside in.

I still have my Posey doll from childhood. I have her dressed on a pillow and she reminds me of my childhood.

I still have most of my childhood books and still read them every now and again.

Do you know that doll, pretty in pink bears a striking resemblance to you?

She really is quite pretty, Susan, and has a sweet face. I can see why she came home with you that day. I have a few things from my childhood, but I can never give away my Barbie. I only had one growing up, but my mom made several different clothes for it, which I still have.

From one doll lover to another.....Happy New Year!

love, ~Sheri
