    You certainly hit a very popular request. Everyone likes to share a bit of themselves. I have not sent in a photo yet (not at home for a few days). Love getting a peek into so many homes.

    I have one of those baby dolls in the photo. It is a 3 month old baby purchased in Wichita Falls Tx at Perkins Timberlake dept Store in early 1960’s. It was a lifelike babydoll but only had one sprig of hair coming out of the top of head. Ugly newborn face but felt like a newborn baby. Thanks for sharing sweet friends.

      Hello Nancy. I made all of these dolls when I lived in Lafayette, Colorado. Each porcelain head and hands were cleaned, fired, painted, and fired again. The doll body is of muslin. Each type of doll has a name but it’s been so long, I cannot recall.

      The base they’re standing in is part of a cradle my father made for me in 1964. It took me a long time to find the right place for each item.

    Thanks for sharing. Having to stay inside and SNOW falling every minute makes the QUILT MAIL/ photos. Even MORE important.♥️

    Hi Mary, love the 3 little dogs at the window, and the great selection of bowls someone has. It’s interesting that there are so many colonial looking cupboards, wish l had the space for one! Take care everyone, best wishes from Sandy
