This little doll is quite old. She's one of the things I have from the summer of 1948 when Bea was clearing out her Aunt Carrie's house in Asbury Park.
She sits in my desk all year, waiting for Christmas.
She likes this sampler from 1815 and the little vintage seed boxes from a Virginia nursery. This is her friend c 1950 made by my Nana's friend Elsie. I like to think they enjoy the pictures of children that surround them.
The little lead figures in two sizes come from PFS's Aunt Martha.
I also like boxes, books and mini furniture. This little cupboard is a favorite along with the tobacco boxes, the mini pinball and the old irons.
We have some other old games hanging downstairs.
This rocking horse lives on the hearth year round. My Dad made him c1944.
The wicker carriage is old, but semi restored. It cost $20 at a sale here's a before and after.
Here it is for Christmas.
This swing I had as a child. We had a big one in the yard that we rocked to the moon. Raggedy Ann and Hail Growlie are much calmer swingers.
Raggedy Andy is riding the bike bought in State College in 1969. My son's first purchase at auction.
Not quite vintage, Stephen Bear (in green) is 1971 and very well loved. "Bebe" in her red pjs sitting in an old cradle from a yard sale.
The toys all like to play at Christmas. After we unwrap presents they live under the tree.
