D is for Doll

This lovely antique Doll was offered for sale at an auction I went to last week. She sold for $55.00. But not to me.


She looked a bit bedraggled, as if nobody had cared for her for quite a while. Her hair needed combing and her dress could do with a wash and a few stitches. I wondered what her name was, and who was the little girl who had loved her.

She has such a sweet expression on her face. I hope she went to a good home.

A lovely doll but yes a bit bedraggled.
I too hope that she has gone to a good home.

She still has her SHOES, too! That's a rarity. Very appealing dolly.

Am enjoying your alphabet posts, even if I'm a sneaky lurker! You should try crochet - it's so much quicker!!! - but I have to admit I've never tried knitting socks. It always looks so difficult. I often drool over the socks posted on some of the blogs I visit. Sue

Hey there! What a gorgeous blog, yup, that movie The Prestige rocked my world (I'm kind of a Bowie fan!) thanks, and yes, please come along with me, Dubai soon(!), Stacey and I were saying often we discover very similar things about this wonderful world, and sometimes totally different. Take care for now

I know a friend who would love it. She collects antique dolls. Well, she collects EVERYTHING. :-)

I do agree: Hope this Doll will have a good home, so she still can be around for generations to come.

Thanks for sharing.

She's cute and I love your alphabet theme.

Thanks for visiting me too - my sister's up for a busy few months organising my wedding!!! :o)

If someone paid $55 for her, I'm sure they will take good care of her. In the meantime, all your good thoughts and wishes have brought her back to life!
