It's amazing how my mood changes with the weather!! Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday the sun was bright, the skies were blue! I was energetic. There were dozens of outside projects I wanted to work on. Today it is raining, cold, and gloomy. I cannot get in the mood to do anything but, (as mama used to say), "hunt and search" the cabinets for something to eat!! Maybe posting something will cheer me up and get me out of the kitchen...
I have loved dolls my whole life. My sister still tells the story about the time she wanted me to go to a movie with her and her boyfriend, and another boy. A double date. I was sixteen. My answer to her was, "I don't want to, I had planned to dress up all my dolls tonight". Imagine that!! Sixteen years old!! Not in this day and time!! Or maybe there was something wrong with me!!!
This picture was taken when we lived in Summerville, SC. My sister, my brother, and me (asleep on the end). Mid 1940's.
One of my first dolls. Looks like chickens in the background. I don't remember that.
I was about 10 years old in this next picture. Mama didn't go anywhere without me, if I had anything to say about it! I loved being with mama. She was my favorite person in this world!! She was just the BEST! Is this a 1950's kitchen or what??
It makes me happy to talk about mama and daddy. Thank you for listening. I do have one other picture. Poppy bought me an old Saucy Walker doll last Christmas. She is not exactly like the one I had, but enough so that it brings back lots of good memories.
