When I was a kid

When I was a kid, I was a tomboy, as my Mom said. I played with my brother and his friends - we climbed trees - I was always up in a tree. We rode bikes. I rode horses and ponies wildly, and when I wasn't on a horse, I was pretending to BE a horse. Dirt and sticks and stones were my friends.

There is one picture of me though, pushing a doll in a baby carriage. Seriously? My hair is even neatly braided. No Way. I need to find that picture and frame it. :)
Sooo - I rarely played with dolls, if at all (unless you believe that one picture, which I don't). Is this why I am now fascinated with dolls of all sorts??
For example, I really really really want this one............




I don't even want to tell you where to find her. (fairiesnest) (there, I put that in there so that if you want to buy her for me for my birthday in November, you can....).




This guy would be awesome to take on adventures! You can find him at Merrydale Dolls, but I'd rather you didn't. :)



This adorable little cutie I managed to snag, from Princess Nimble Thimble. I play with her a lot. When I'm supposed to be workiing, muhahahahah!



And here's one that I yearn for...................from Ruprecht.

And of course it didn't help that I have no girl children. So if you're ever wondering what to get me for a present, now you have some ideas!!

When I was a very little kid...My sister cut all the hair off the only doll we had and then told my parents I did it. I got spanked. we had that doll for years...with the bristly hair right down to the scalp. I wish I still had her, she was loved despite bad hair!

Lol Eve, My sister did that too.

Thanks Sara! You deserve all the dollies you can get! I have a special place in my heart for adults who love dolls...maybe because as a mom of 3 boys I never got to play with them as much as I would have liked.

I'm so glad your little hippie doll is bringing joy!
