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.
