Meet a few other doll friends

Hello Everyone,
  I do hope you are all doing well out there in blog land!! First of all I want to ask you  what you think of my new look for my blog? I finally just jumped in and stumbled around until I figured it out, it only took me about 5 1/2 Hrs. Yes I can see some of you computer saavy people laughing out loud right now :) What I still haven't figured out , is how to make it so people can just follow me on blogger, not circles, maybe I just don't know what they are calling the link button? Anyway if any of you can tell me, I would appreciate it, since I really don't understand the whole circles thing!
  Well today I thought I'd show you some pictures of a few dolls  that I have come to own recently, this first one is a lovely bed doll from the 1920's. I found her at Renningers flea market for only $25.00, usually these dolls are around $75.00 or higher, so I felt she was quite a deal!

 This little doll was actually one I bought at auction to sell in my booth at the antique store,after a few months she hadn't sold and I brought her home, thinking I'd take her back after a period of time,but now I love her and I think I'll keep her, Hee Hee.

 This is also a doll I bought to sell at the same time as the one above, this one is a Franklin mint, not really antique , but vintage from the early 1970's' I love the case she came in with all the wedding memorabilia around her, I have the glass front open so I could take pictures. She's hanging on the wall above the one I just showed you.

 And last but not least this little German doll was bought from an estate sale where the lady who owned her told me the dolls story. The lady was in her eighties and was having to downsize to move in with her daughter, she told me she had owned the doll since she was around 10 yrs. old. she had received the doll from an Aunt who had owned it from her childhood, so she knew for sure the doll was over 100 yrs. old. I asked her what she had named the doll since she had owned it since childhood, but she said she had never given the doll a name, since she really was never allowed to play with it, apparently her Mother put it in a cabinet to preserve it until she was older. Her daughter suggested she tell me what her own name was since it was an unusual family name and so now the doll is named Natholyn in Honor of the woman I bought her from.
Well that's all for now, so till next time, love and blessings to you all!!


  1. Hello- your dolls are pretty and sweet , just like you:)

  2. Hi Teresa, The dolls are lovely, all of them. But I think my favorite is the baby, she's so cute and sweet looking. A baby I would have dearly loved as a child. have a great day, Barbara

  3. Aunt Teresa,

    That boudoir doll was a steal! I paid a lot more for mine... and yours has prettier colors. Any whoo I love all of the dolls but I really love that baby sweet.

    Love and Blessings,
    Amy Jo

  5. Hi Teresa, it's lovely to meet you, thanks so much for stopping by my blog....l love all your dolls, what a bargain the boudoir doll was, and l loved reading the story about Natholyn. A bit sad the old lady never had the chance to play with her much. Though l never saw your previous blog design, this one is awesome and so pretty.

    1. Thanks Bron,
      I really enjoy all the beautiful pictures on your blog and I'm so glad you stopped by to visit mine. I agree its so sad she never played with the doll :( but I'm happy to have her now!
      Blessings to you,
