Doll Fever

Several of you reminded me that I didn’t answer this week’s question!

“What was your favorite toy when you were a kid?”

Well . . . I would have to say it was a doll. 🙂

The “favorite” one would change every so often, but truly I loved them all – even the one that wasn’t a REAL Barbie (story here).

After my kids left the nest, I suddenly found myself buying dolls for myself. I guess I was trying to fill the nest again!

Soon, people began to give me dolls as gifts. I’d like to show you two of them. The first is from my dear sister-in-law. I love her (the sister!) and I love this doll that she chose for me.

The next one is a gift from my oldest daughter. She knows I’m a doll lover and she sent this cutie (in a regional costume) from Switzerland! The doll’s eyes close and she has such lovely little details on her outfit.

I think all dolls are wonderful, but the ones that touch my heart the most are those I’ve received as gifts.

Have you acquired a doll since you became an adult? 🙂
