Part of my doll collection

Just wanted to share some of my dolls that I have collected over the years. I already gave my granddaughter 10 of them and she has them neatly on a shelf that was made from parts of an old sofa. Will have to take pictures next time I go visit. My mom gave her a set of twins, a boy and girl and they are adorable, but my brother wanted me to bring them back after our mom died. I was not going to be the one who told my granddaughter she had to give the dolls back---for whatever reason because the dolls were given to us girls by my dad. They told her and she said okay, like the sweet angel she is, but we put a stop to it. You don't do that to a child of 6 years old.
I have others put away and will put two of the babies in the antique crib I found. Was going to paint it white, but I think that would ruin the value. I just haven't decided yet.




If you are wondering about the urn in the foreground, that is my cat Max. Since we had planned on moving into this house, Al had him cremated because I didn't want to leave him behind. I had Max for over 18 years and he was a part of our family. Please don't call the white coats, I am not the only person who does this.

Wishing you all a Safe Memorial Day. Love and Hugs, Pat

GOOD AFTERNOON PAT,
I LOVE YOUR DOLLS. I COLLECT DOLLS AND I REALLY DID NOT LIKE THEM TOO MUCH AS A CHILD....BUT WHEN I TURNED 26 I JUST FELL IN LOVE WITH THEM. MY ONLY BELOVED DAUGHTER AMY COLLECTED BARBIE DOLLS.
SHE HAS EVERY CHRISTMAS AND HOLIDAY BARBIE EVER MADE...THE FIRST ONE BEING 1986 WHEN SHE WAS 10 1/2 YEARS AND FAUGHT CANCER FOR THE FIRST TIME...THEN GOD BLESSED US WITH 20 MORE YEARS AND ON OCT. 23, 2009 HE CALLED HER HOME. I DON'T THINK YOUR HEART EVER HEALS WHEN YOUR CHILD GRADUATES TO HEAVEN. I SURE MISS HER SO VERY MUCH.
YOUR GRANDDAUGHTER IS PRECIOUS.
LOOKING FORWARD TO A NEW FRIENDSHIP. BY THE WAY I AM 55 YEARS OLD SO WE ARE VERY CLOSE IN AGE.
I WILL JOIN YOUR BLOG AND PRAY FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND.
HUGS AND BLESSINGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE
