This week, I have a vintage doll that belonged to my mom. She passed this doll on to me several years ago. I think she is so cute. I remember I used to enjoy looking at her when I was a child. My mom told me she was given the doll as a gift, because she had red pigtails just like my mom wore when she was little. And yes, my mom has red hair. She is indeed a vintage treasure.....the doll and my mom.
See, she looks like she is ready for the first day of school with her satchel over her shoulder. Now besides the red pigtails, there is one more thing this doll has in common with my mom when she was little. Just take a look at the socks.....and then look at this picture below.
Here is a vintage Photo of my mom with a doll, just not the doll I am showing you today. She is the one on the right. Notice the hair, and the socks.....Yep, can you now see that this doll even looks like her?
I have no idea who the other two in the photo are. I am guessing the one on the left is my Aunt Joyce, but what the heck happened to her hair? A home perm? I feel sorry for little guy hiding behind the teddy bear. I am quiet sure he was embarrassed as heck for standing in between two girls and their dolls....seriously, who would do that to a kid???
Hope you enjoyed a peek at my vintage doll and my mom as a child. I am hoping when one of my family members sees this photo, they will leave a comment and share the identity of the other two children. It would be nice to know! Have a great weekend.
***Be sure to check back in on Monday....The Bloggy Carnival Giveaway starts, and I have a giveaway that will last all week.
