Antique Doll

I've always been a doll lover. I know some people get scared of them. I never really understood why. They are just an item.

This one has been in the family for years:


I remember my Dad would let me hold this doll once in awhile; as he watched me. He would get her down from his closet and I would smile as she was put in my hands.

She's not perfect. One set of eyelashes are present, while the others are off. She used to make a noise as you rocked her from the lay down position to the upright. I can still feel her voice box, but it is very faint.

This doll lover part of me wishes I would have had one girl. One girl to pass them on to. Maybe someday I'll have granddaughters or a daughter in law that will love them as much as I do.

Oh I love that you still have her in the family. I have dolls from when I was little that I had hoped to pass on to a daughter someday, but like you - I have all boys, so maybe I'll get a granddaughter someday. In like 30 or more years LOL.

I was a HUGE doll lover when I was a little one. My daughter liked them when she was really young, but she's got three brothers (and she's 13 now), so she doesn't really bother with them anymore. Shame, that, cuz I liked playing too. :)

I remember those dolls. You are lucky to still have it.

I was never much into dolls as a kid because I was such a tomboy. I would rather climb a tree than play with a doll.

She's sweet -- with four girls in our house growing up, no doll ever survived for very long.

Doll collecting can be quite the hobby...I had a doll passed down to me and I love her♫
