Christmas Past

Every year I bring out a couple of my dolls from Christmas past. I guess I was about nine years old when Santa brought this one. She has always been my favorite and I guess that’s why I held on to her all these 57 years. Ouch, store did I say 57 years!!


I still love her. Her face always had a certain smell, pharmacy and, try unbelievably it still does. She brings back such wonderful memories of that Christmas morning. Remember how exciting it was getting up on Christmas morning, going down stairs, and seeing that, yes, Santa came! I’m so thankful that I still have them, so every Christmas I get them out and put them under the tree again. The little Oriental doll is special to me too, it was given to me by my dad.
I better get dressed now. I’m meeting a friend for lunch and some shopping.

    Love your dolls. The blonde looks like my “Sweet Sue” doll from the same era. I illustrated a paperdoll of Sue for Doll Reader magazine a couple of years ago. I also had a Japanese/Korean? doll just like the one you have. Happy childhood memories…………..

    Merry Christmas Carole! Isnt it just amazeing what memories a SMELL will bring back to us? I have things from my childhood, and pictures too…..and always find if I close my eyes and SMELL certain things, it is like being back at that moment all over again. Sometimes I will be shopping in an antique store, or out and about and will suddenly catch a whiff of something…….it will make me STOP in my tracks to remember something pleasant, then I will have the fun to go try and find what I am smelling :)
