Lori from Faerie Window is having a show off your favourite dolls day today, unfortunately I don't have too many girly dolls, having a house full of boys it didn't seem right to have a doll collection on display who knows what the boys might get up to with them, so I thought that I might share with you a couple that I do have.
This one I only received this past Christmas it came from my two lovely nieces. I may not have girls but I do have 4 nieces who I love buying very girly things for. My sisters two daughters spotted this lovely doll who's name happens to be Linda and promptly told their Mum that they had to buy it for me. How cute is that! I love it! It is so special to me knowing that it is from my beautiful nieces.
Now this second one is also very special, she needs a lot of TLC at the moment, when I find the right person to do it I will get her fixed. This beautiful doll is my Mums. My Mum was born in the Netherlands at the time of WWII. When Mum was 11 the family decided to leave their homeland and move to New Zealand, Mum and her 2 brothers and sister where told that they had to leave everything behind and only take one toy with them, this is what Mum brought with her. Mum said that she still has the original dress for her in storage. I just love the look on her sweet face and to know that my Mum loved her that much to travel halfway around the world with her is just wonderful.If you would like to see more wonderful favourite dolls just visit Lori for the list of blogs participating.
Ok now for those of you that read my previous post and were wondering which random and weird fact was not true it is no 5. Although my son, my younger sister and brother all do have this problem I am glad to say that I don't, actually I have never passed out or fainted before in my life.
Oh and if you have been reading the A to Z of my home I know that I have gotten a little side tracked the last few posts but I will continue next post, so until then .............
