This is the curio in my office, filled with barbies, My Scene dolls, my little Madame Alexanders, a Madame Alexander that belonged to my grandmother, Ginnys and Betsy McCalls. The Ginnys were my daughters', the Betsy McCalls were mine. There is also a Miss Revlon in the back, but you can't see her. Also Hannah Montana (she sings) and a few Disney dolls.
When Kristin was a little girl, we took a prcelain doll making class together. She made a large baby doll with hair and movable eyes. She loved her dolls. She got the biggest portion of our budget, so I made a small baby with closed eyes. I love her still, and she sleeps in a basket in our bedroom.
Here's her sweet face up close. CLICK TO ENLARGE and you can even see her eyelashes. I would never have the patience to do it again, but I enjoyed our mother-daughter experience and am glad we did it.
Thanks for your comments Pat and Connie! I love knowing there are others who love dolls and enjoy them.
