Today, I am sharing a very special doll. She was a gift to my mom, from my dad when I was born. Somehow, years later I ended up with her. Growing up, I thought she was so pretty with her extra special touches...

Fancy hairstyle.

I have never seen such a doll, it's really too cute !
If you prefer to have the original version of Mr. Linky which is more visible, I had asked them for my group Cats on Tuesday and they told me to just add a "2" to www. It should look like "http://www2.blenza" then it works. at least it did with my Cats on tuesday. Just give a try. the links are more visible with the original version.

I had a couple of these dolls when I was a little girl and I just LOVED them. I saw one at the thrift store the other day and have been kicking myself for not buying it. It brought back such lovely memories. I always enjoy your blog!

Oh, my sister and I used to have dolls like that. My mother didn't save anything, she was the total opposite of a pack rat so we don't have them anymore. Ours were pink. I was in love with mine too. Fun memories. =)

She's so pretty! I had some Mexican dolls that had similar faces, that my aunt brought me when she visited Mexico. I thought they had such pretty features for a doll. My mom also had one of those dolls that had the huge skirt that sat on the bed and it had a pretty face too. Thanks for sharing such a pretty doll!
Be Blessed!
