SWEET PICKINS

I just had to share these sweet, sweet pieces that came into the shop recently.  Sometimes it's just sooo, so hard to sell things........but that's only because I WANNA KEEP THEM.  


 First, meet Bunny Lou and Mary Lou.  Aren't they GREAT.  I have no idea how old they are, but I'm guessing maybe the late 50's or early 60's. 


They still have several outfits that come with them and the box is still there too.....a little worn, well, alot, but still there.


Aren't those faces precious???


And, here's a darlin' doll suitcase..........


stuffed to overflowing with doll clothes.........


and accessories.


LOOK at these precious gloves with a tiny felt girl attached!!!


 And, last, but definitely not least......A DOLL TRUNK!!!


 This has GOT to be at least a hundred years old.  Notice the swan pic in the top of the lid.



 And, the little lift top compartment............LOVE IT!!!



I sometimes wonder how anyone can let family treasures like these escape the family.  Don't you wish we could hear their stories??  I'll bet there was a very fine china doll whose clothes were lovingly place in this tiny trunk by some special little lady.

I know I've used the word 'precious' too many times, but I don't know any other way to describe these pieces.  
So, tell me.  What cha think?

Aren't they just PRECIOUS???


I'm partying with these girls:

  1. Yes, those are precious treasures. LOVE the little doll gloves! I would keep them! Awesome trunk. We have one and the dogs sit on it to look out the familyroom window. It has one of their "beds" on it!

  4. So cute! I still have tons of my paper dolls. I framed some of them and wrote a post about it last year. It turned out really cute and it makes me smile every time I walk by it!

  15. I have a large trunk with the exact same swan label on the inside of the lid. Does yours have a label or a maker on it? Just trying to find some more clues as to where mine came from. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
