"O" as in OH DEAR for Alphabe-Thursday

Yikes!  It's time again for Alphabe-Thursday sponsored by Ms. Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent."  In keeping with my doll theme I'm reaching into my archives to find a picture.  I've been kind of busy this week and didn't have time to come up with something original so I'm going with "O" as in OH DEAR!

Some years back an online doll group did a thing called "Ginny as me."  We would find an old photograph of ourselves and then recreate the photo with our Vogue Ginny dolls.

OH DEAR...what was I thinking when this photo was taken?
This is actually from an old  slide and I was rejecting Skippy Olsen's advances.  This was taken sometime in the early 1950's.

Here's Ginny as me!
The boy doll is a Madame Alexander doll.  The Ginny representing me is what collectors call a Skinny Ginny.  This type of Ginny was manufactured during the late 70's and early 80's.  This was a period of time when the Vogue Doll Company was undergoing changes and was owned by a couple of different companies.   Eventually, the company was purchased by the Smith family in 1995 and today we have very good reproduction Ginnys that are very similar to the ones produced in the 1950's.  (I was always a skinny child so I decided to use a Skinny Ginny for this picture.)

Now head over to Ms. Jenny's blog for a list of this week's participants.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. You were so cute in your real picture - that was just awesome - love your glasses and rejecting boys! teehee

    And you did a great job recreating the dolls to look like you!!!

    I really enjoyed this post.

  2. That is a cute photo of you resisting the attention of your friend. Your recreation of the scene is perfect!

  3. Good thing you made him keep his distance!! Cute replica...:)JP

  4. Betty, little Ginny sticking out her tongue? How clever! Love the old photo!!

  5. Very fun post. Oh dear! It was adorable. Yes it was the 04 storm! We were delivering Christmas meals that night! It was treacherous but we had 4 wheel drive! Thanks for coming by. Our family is here for a few days so I haven't been around just answering sweet comments!
    Have a good week.

  6. Betty, I liked your old timey picture. It was very similar to the dolls' picture. We don't collect dolls but did have a very old Teddy bear. Adi (may she RIP) tore it up so we threw it out. Probably we should have checked to see if he was worth repairing.

    The hurricanes around here don't bother us now since we moved from Galveston Country (Friendswood) up here to Montgomery. Tropical storm Claudette put 33 inches of water in our home back in 1979.
    Alecia went right over our house but the tall young limber trees saved the roof I am sure. Key west there aren't any hills 100 miles to the north, can't hide.

  7. That photo of you made me smile -- thanks for that! :)
