The little girl in Us all : )

Afternoon TeaAhh...Spring -Yes !                                  
can you smell them?<3
I'm welcoming Spring today by remembering the little girl I was and how I loved having tea parties with My dolls. I treasure those memories....warm Sun with a blanket in Our backyard, My dolls and stuffed animals and My Mom helping Me prepare. Dolls were big for Me,My favorite toys were dolls.I wanted more than anything to be a wife and Mommy even as a very very little girl.While My Sister was much more interested in the outdoors and playing around in the neighborhood,being the athletic one She was. I do know Delaine, My Sister, treasures that little girl in Her too. As for Me, it was frilly dresses and pretty nighties and playing dolls.I would twirl for My parents and Delaine would just roll Her eyes and go play ball. I was born with a slight disability, but that never mattered to Me. Delaine looked out for Me and helped Me when I was outside.Now that We have grown old,We are still like those little girls.We have not changed very much. Although of course Our priorities have changed since those days. She loves Her Husband and Children as I do My own.She now watches sports with Her Family,I never have.We both cherish those little girls and boy oh boy do We laugh together now about Our growing up Years.
My Sister and Her Husband.
Me and My Hubby.

These are a few of the dolls I own now.I still enjoy them.I reposition them, dust them and yes cuddle the baby dolls. Although I haven't purchased any in Years,I still love these.

Each doll looks like one of My daughters or Granddaughters.
What do You treasure about that tiny girl in You?

Love -Denise

Hi Denise, I came right over to see your dolly post. I spent my days as a little girl playing with my dolls as well. Now, that my nest is empty and I'm home alone most of my time, I'm playing dolls again. It's a great stress reliever, a great hobby, and something I just flat enjoy :) Blessings my dear dolly friend

Oh the little girl in me still wants to be in the great outdoors, so I'm more like your sister like that. But I do love to read as well, just like I did as a little girl, neither of these two things have diminished really.
I enjoyed your post, it's just as well we're all different or the world would be a pretty boring place.
Your dolls are lovely, isn't it amazing how we can see people we know in them?

Oh, Denise, I still am that little girl! I'll be 70 in a few weeks; I've learned that it's never too late (never ever ever!) to have a happy childhood. My mother saved all my dolls, bless her heart. I will never toss them. They are my precious treasures. I have Ginny, Ginger, Ginnette, lots of their outfits and furniture pieces. I have a walking doll (Suzy Walker, perhaps) that I got in the second grade. I have two old Effanbee dolls. I have a very glamorous Revlon doll, too. Sometime I will take some photos and post them on my blog. I haven't taken them out and looked at them in awhile. I need to do that again!

Loved this post, Denise. It's a blessing to know that there are other grown-ups out there who never forget the child inside them. Sending a hug and blessings.

Oh, now this is a GREAT POST! I could go on and on and on....and perhaps I should, in a poem. The little girl in me has never left. NEVER. What do I treasure? SO MUCH, my friend....and before my morning turns to late afternoon, I need to write this all down in detail. But I can say that my time with my dolls, my playhouse that my father built me and going to school are just some of the things I treasure the most. I will write the detail down now...and THANK YOU so much for coming to visit. My book will be fun to make MUCH LOVE! Anita

Can you send me your snail mail and email information for the Spring coffee Lovers blog hop prize? I tried to send you an email but it bounced back to me as undeliverable. I'd like to get your information over to the Sponsor this week. Thanks!

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
