We had time to stop at a thrift shop last evening on the way to
an appointment. (Yes - I'm a bit of a thrift shop junkie...)
My eye caught these dolls in little plastic bags -
and immediately a memory was stirred....
When I was little - we had a doll just like the one in the crocheted dress.
Except - it wasn't with my dolls and it wasn't in the toy chest.
I am the youngest of 5 children - quite spread out - so many years
and events occurred before I came on the scene. My memory of
this doll was that it was kept in a drawer in our dining room.

I don't remember ever knowing why she was there. On occasion
I'd open that drawer and get her out. I was intrigued with her
long black hair in pigtails...
...and cute little red shoes that I now know are Mary Janes...
Why was she in a drawer? Where did we get her?
My parents are no longer here to ask. I've checked with my
siblings but they also don't know her story.
I have never seen the boy doll so am quite tickled with this find.
Do you know anything about these cuties? A little tidbit
may help unlock our family mystery.
But regardless - it was still fun to embrace a small memory
that I had long forgotten.
May your memories be sweet today too! ~Joyce
