My Sister’s Doll – 1947

Italian Doll

Our Uncle Harold brought this doll to my sister in 1947. Mary was in Kindergarten.  He was in the US Navy.

He brought the doll back from Naples.

She was a souvenir doll, not a play doll.

A couple of days ago, I put her in Mary’s NYC apartment window and photographed her from different angles.

Her straw hat wouldn’t stay on her head and I didn’t want to force it.

As I took her photo, her eyes seemed to follow me and I moved her around to try and get a good pose and shot.

Have you ever noticed how something inanimate can feel it has a life?


Aunt Linda and Uncle Frank

You remember Uncle Frank and his vintage cars? Aunt Linda and the making of the nut rolls?

Today is Aunt Linda’s birthday and thought I’d surprise her with a birthday greeting on the blog with a photo of the two of them.

 

I’m still vacationing in Ohio with the family so went into the archives for today’s post.
