Here Come the Brides

Since Edith/Edward turned out not to be a bride, I kept searching and found these two girls.

Mary Rose and Goldie arrived from Philadelphia looking very frightened. They had never been so far from home before.  They were introduced to Geoffrey and Edward, but nothing was said about marriage because I didn't want to scare them.

Things are little misty after that but suddenly I began craving Small Dolls. These three girls were the next to arrive.

I don't remember where Cassie, Bonnie, and Dorinda came from. Somewhere far away. They weren't even scared--they were comatose.

Next came the Salvation Army find. On November 20, Auntie Berman insisted we go thrifting (of course I had to be dragged kicking and screaming). At the Salvation Army that we don't usually go to, we found a compo Hollywood Doll, Miss Valentine, whose arms and legs were nearly off, another 7 1/4 inch hard plastic doll and a newer one from the 60s made of vinyl. Best of all, they were all 75% off!

  1. And look at the useful doll stringing skills you have acquired as you reunite these doll parts! Not to mention the dress making that has gone on.
