Inspiration Avenue Weekly Challenge
"Dolls"
I have not entered the challenge for some time.
I was every inspired this week with the theme
"Dolls"
Growing up I had lots of dolls. I had a Story Book Doll collection that number quite a few dolls. I still have the collection, but have not taken care of it as I should have.
The dolls in this picture hold many memories. The Teddy Bear was a gift for my first Christmas. The doll on the left I called "Cindy" and she walks!!!
My very favorite is the Vogue Doll - Ginny - in the yellow dress & hat.
One birthday, the only thing I got that year were clothes for my
"Ginny Doll", all hand made by my Mother and my Grandma Werner.
Thanks for bringing back some wonderful memories with this weeks challenge.
