It's amazing how much you get done when the above mentioned three things are gone. I vacuumed and dusted! I watched Breaking Bad on DVD's. In a strange kind of way I enjoyed the isolation, but I'm glad to be back too. So, here we go!
Welcome to Alphabe-Thursday sponsored by Ms. Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent."
"F" as in Summer FUN!
The doll in the middle is a vintage strung Ginny from the early 1950's. Her wig has been replaced and she has a lazy eye. I believe her eyes weren't set in correctly when she was manufactured. Her other eye is wide open, but the right eye shows some eyelid. I love her crocheted bathing suit and hat. The set was purchased on eBay. The other dolls are vintage reproduction Ginny dolls and a modern Jill doll all by the Vogue Doll Company. The modern Jill has been repainted and was purchased on eBay.
"G" as in GINNY, of course.
My love affair with the Vogue GINNY doll began in the 1950's.
My GINNY would be considered worthless to a serious collector. Her skin has a grayish cast from being handled so much and her painted lashes have faded. Her walking mechanism no longer works. None of that matters to me! I consider her priceless.
Now please head over to Ms. Jenny's blog for a list of this week's participants. Thank you for visiting!
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!
