I have such a sweet sister.
The other day, my sister Cindy stopped by and brought me a gift!
It is the cutest book I have ever seen.
Little Girls And Their Dolls
I love the illustrations
I have always loved dolls. And this book brings back so many memories for me.
As a little girl I played with dolls constantly.
When I became an adult I started making porcelain dolls.
I have made several and most of them are stored away in boxes for now.
Living in a house full of boys, I have often heard the statement...,"Mom, those dolls are freaking me out."
That is why they are in boxes.
I recently recieved another Very Special Gift. This one was given to me by my Mother.
Her Mary Poppins Doll!!!
I couldn't believe she gave her to me!! There is a good reason why I would be the one to get this treasure...you see, when I was very young, at Christmas time, every time someone would ask me what Santa Clause was going to bring me, I would simply say...,"I don't know, but, my Mom is going to get a Mary Poppins Doll!"
I have NO idea what I got that year but my Mom got a Mary Poppins Doll! I knew she would...Santa always comes through!
I remember her having a bag and an umberella and a hat. I'm sure I am probably the one that lost those items when I was young.
Mary Poppins now has a home in my cabinet and so far she hasn't freaked any of the boys out! LOL I think they all understand what a Fabulous Treasure she is in my heart.
So to the best Mom and Sister, THANK YOU!! I love and treasure my gifts.
And no matter what our age's are, we are all still little girls inside that love our dolls.
