Warm Heart Wednesday sponsored by Ms. Jenny at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent."
Rain, rain go away! That's what we've been saying in Houston this week. I live in the Clear Lake area and we probably got a fraction of the amount of rain they got in other parts of town. I stayed home and kept busy working on some of my dolls. That always warms my heart.
I recently won a set of Birthday aprons on Ebay. Back in the 1950's the Vogue Doll Company made a set of aprons for a little girl and her doll. Here's one of my little girls with her doll.
I've been working on some recent purchases too. Most of my dolls are fixer uppers. I like the idea that some little girl back in the 1950's had fun playing with them. I also like the idea that they're much less expensive that way. I see beautiful mint Vogue Ginny Dolls on eBay for $200 and up...sometimes over a thousand. No thanks. I love dolls, but not that much.
I recently bought the two dolls in the middle of this photo at a doll show. The one of the left was $27.50 and the clown was $25.
Then my son helped me put in some new elastic so their arms could hold a pose. He asked that I keep him out of the photograph. He does not want to be known as a doll doctor. I respect his wishes so he'll help me again the next time.
Cathy doll on eBay and she can be yours for $365. I'll put up with my less than perfect Cathy for $27.50.
Before I go I thought I'd share some pictures my friend texted to me this past week. Sherelyn lives on the northwest side of Houston where I lived in the 1980's. That area was hit particularly hard with flooding. She was stuck home for days, but was fortunate not to get any water in her home. It came close though.
It rained again today, but hopefully that will be it for a while.
