"D" as in DOLLS for Alphabe-Thursday

OK, I know it's Saturday and not Thursday, but it's still not too late for Alphabe-Thursday.  This week we are studying the letter "D" as in DOLLS.
Since I'm using my doll collection for this go around of Alphabe-Thursday the letter "D" was an easy one for me.  I didn't get around to taking pictures this week, but I've got plenty of old ones saved.  I took these with my very first digital camera.  I thought I'd show you some of my Chatty Cathy dolls.

This one seemed appropriate for flag day.
Summer means baseball.
Of course, my Chattys are cowgirls.
My poor Chattys are kind of neglected.  I used to enjoy buying them and fixing them up.
I'd give them boil perms.  That's where you set their hair in perm rollers and then pour boiling water over the rollers.

One time I found a Chatty at a flea market in the bottom of a box.  Her face was crushed.
Someone told me to take her head off and pour boiling water inside and it worked.
Like I said, I've lost interest in Chatty.  I've thought about selling them off, but then I look at their cute faces and just can't do it.  So, they're here to stay.  Besides, I always enjoyed sewing for them.  If I ever find the time I might get back to it.

Now head over to Jenny's blog, Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent..." for a list of this week's participants.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Oh, they all look so adorable!

  2. Neat trick about the boiling water!!,...:)JP

  3. They are delightful!

    Even if they're a bit neglected!


    I'm waiting to get rid of things that used to entice me.

    I figure if I'm not interested in 18 months I'll do it then.

    The curler shots were delightful, though, and I appreciate the smile!

    Thank you for linking.


  4. Hi Betty! It was so neat to see your Chatty photos again. I had lost interest too, but thanks to FB Chatty groups I'm back to sewing for Chatty. It's fun as I missed it. I was glad to read about your son...I'm so happy for you all!
