MEMORY LANE

 

 

 

Both a memory and a reminder. Hard to forget, how I every
year searched for a different doll for one of my daughters,
already a teen then, but still wanted a doll for Christmas.
These are some of the ones she saved to one time give
to her own daughters. That is the memory.
The reminder is to keep them apart in the garage
of the the things we donate to the goodwill!

Last time we drove into Los Angeles. The city sky was polluted
because of this fire in progress!

Ouch, usually I would have cropped this or photoshopped it,
because some of the Roof Panels are MISSING

    What a brilliant memory, Jesh. Such love in your giving and your daughter keeping.
    I’m all for all children having dolls, and all children having trains – it’s down to us parents and grandparents not to discourage them from playing because a toy doesn’t match their gender!

      Amen to that – there’s no gender for play!!

    Jesh – we have our daughter’s two-story dollhouse and all of its furniture in storage in our garage. One of these days, when she has a girl of her own (we hope and dream), we will pass it back to her for more hours of enjoyment. A great memory!

  4. Very nice…I would have trouble getting rid of them; in fact, I do have trouble getting rid of them. I have dolls from my own childhood, which I display is very, very large glass containers, and some in quart size containers; and I have some that were my daughters, which I have sitting on a shelf in my craft room. The dolls in the quart jars were my grandmothers. She like to crochet and she made tiny cheerleaders outfits, in the colors of the high school in her town, and dressed the dolls in them. These are now mine and I hope to pass them on to my daughter and her daughters. Thanks for sharing.

      Wow Michelle, it sounds like dolls are a transgenerational thing in your family! How neat that you have this connection with your grandmother as well as your grandchildren! Awesome:)

    2. I loved dolls but only had 3 real dolls when I was and lots and lots of paper dolls. I love paper dolls. I would design and create all kinds of outfits for them with construction paper or typing paper. When I was ten I received my first Barbie. She wasn’t blonde. She was brunette and short haired like Connie Stevens. I was disappointed at first but came to love her for her uniqueness, and spirit.
      My other dolls were a no name baby doll and when I was five I got a Suzy Smart doll from Santa! Oh, she was lovely! Taller than me, wearing a kilt, a tam, and talked and had a chalk board to spell and do math on! I wish I still had her, but with us moving all the time- we were a military family back then my mom purged her to save weight and I probably had lost interest in her for my new bike or instrument by then.
      Honestly, we both regret getting rid of her.

      So, as an adult I collected dolls, and doll houses, and miniature dollhouses and furniture. I’m sure with your training will no doubt figure that out. 😄

      Concerning dolls, I feel boys are left behind.I wasn’t even a doll girl, but when someone gave me a doll with 12 dresses, I was in heaven (figu!) and so much self-talk went on that boys are bereft of, since they don’t (or hardly) have dolls.

      Well I think boys might have other ways to explore and grow – and I was never a doll girl – so I think it can be very cultural as well.
      Hmmmm
