MY VERY FIRST PINK SATURDAY



Welcome to my blog and my very first PINK SATURDAY. I'm glad you're here and I hope you enjoy your visit.

I decided to share with you my childhood Vogue Ginny Doll that I received for Christmas in 1954. I decked her out in pink so she could celebrate her birthday and Pink Saturday at the same time. Her birthday hat was from Carolyn at Carolyn's Rock and Roll Ginny site. If you enjoy dolls (and vintage Ginny Dolls in particular) you'll enjoy her site.



This was me at Christmas in 1954. My sister and I both received Ginny Dolls that Christmas and for some reason her blonde Ginny was put in the doll stroller for the picture. My Ginny was exactly the same except she had red hair.



HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!!

  1. I don't think I've seen that photo of you, Betty, it's so cute. Can't believe little Ginny is perched in there looking in PERFECT condition LOL.

  4. What a fabulous post! Your Ginny doll is in great shape. I have my mothers Ginny doll and her little chest of clothes. I used to play with when I was little, so my doll is a little worn...Thanks for sharing!

  6. WELCOME to Pink Sat!!!

    I LOVED that photo of you with the dolls! I receive a "walking doll" at about that same year and in my mind she looked so much like the great doll you showed in your first photo! How I wish I had her!

    Have a great First Pink Sat!! Dana

    I love Ginny, and I still have mine, too. In fact, I believe she might have on that same dress. I'll have to go look.

  11. That is so sweet! We had Ginny Dolls, too, and unfortunatly I took mine to the Beauty Parlor. It was actually the Unbeauty Parlor after I had finished with them. ;-) Welcome to Pink Saturday. Glad to have you onboard.

  14. What fun! I have some Ginny's. I have been craving a new Nancy Ann and a Madame Alexander lately. I collect dolls, mostly wood and cloth, and I carve the wooden ones. I don't have any featured today, but you can find them in the category "Hitty" if you are interested. Thanks for posting! Happy Pink Saturday!

  15. Hey, Betty! I live near your old neck of the woods (Newport News, VA) and I'm just dropping by to say BRAVO to you and your DH for taking in poor little Zoom! And also for spaying and feeding MaMa. My husband and I are also Crazy Cat People - we had 4 cats when we managed to catch 2 feral kittens in a lot across from our local Wal Mart! The ferals, Sammy (Sam's Club) and Wally (Wal Mart - they are both females, though) are still skittish after 2 years, but when you look in their eyes, you can see that they appreciate the care they receive...

  27. HAPPY PINK SATURDAY BETTY,
    HAPPY FIRST PINK SATURDAY...IT IS MY FIRST PINK SATURDAY ALSO. ENJOYED YOUR BLOG VERY MUCH. WHEN I WAS YOUNG I DIDN'T REALLY WANT DOLLS MUCH BUT NOW THAT I AM 53, I COLLECT THEM, GO FIGURE.
    I DID HAVE THE DOLL, I CAN'T REMEMBER HER NAME BUT SHE had RED HAIR AND WORE ROUND BLACK GLASSES AND I THINK HER CLOTHING WAS LIKE A SAILOR DRESS...MY SISTER GOT A SHRINKING VIOLET THE SAME YEAR AND STILL HAS HER....ONE OF HER SAYINGS WAS, "I'M AFRAID OF NOISY BOYS!' SHE IS REALLY CUTE....MINE MIGHT HAVE BEEN CHATTY CATHY BUT I DON'T THINK SO.
    MEMORIES...
    THANKS FOR THE SWEET POST
    BLESSINGS

  31. Happy first Pink Saturday, Betty! Isn't this fun? It will take me all week just to visit all the beautiful blogs. Guess what it's doing today? (starts with an "s") Your post is lovely. I love all your old photos, and I adore your darling Ginny. Where do you find the CUTE accents, such as the table, screen and birthday cake? You are soooo creative!
