My Childhood Dolls *~*
I still have three of my childhood dolls
Karen, Sandra and Susan....
Karen was quite a handful as she was a large baby doll who needed a lot of looking after, she often shared my bath and consequently ended up full of water, so my Dad secretly took her to his work shed and drilled some holes in her so she could drain out ( poor thing ) I am so glad that I never witnessed this deed I would have been mortified....
Sandra... was a special Christmas doll all dressed in her velvet a fur outfit, I can remember the 1965 Christmas morning that I first laid eyes on her, she was all wrapped up in a box covered in a layer of snowman paper with a message from my Dad, A Pedigree doll with long brown locks just waiting to be brushed and styled..
Her hair is a little brittle now and her eyelashes are missing but I still love her!
And the came along Susan she was a birthday present from my Auntie ... she wore a summer dress with an apples and pears pattern on it ( long gone now)
They live together in a wicker basket.... and every now and the I take them out and sit them on the bed in the spare bedroom and remember the days that I spent playing with them, all the tea party's they had with the teds .... and all the secrets I told them
