Show and Tell Friday!

As I was typing my title, I was reminded that when I was little I used to have a "Show n Tell". You would put a film strip in the slot and put the record on and it would read a story and show picture on the screen. I loved that toy! I wonder what happened to it??? I found this pic on ebay.
Anyway, back to what I really brought for show and tell! I would like for you to meet three very good friends of mine. The first little lady in the pink victorian attire is "Phyllis Victoria". My darling husband bought her for me when we were first married. The lady we bought her from said maybe you can name her Phyllis, that was her name. I said of course, Phyllis was my mothers name too! She has been in our family for about 25 years now.
The second friend, in the red velvet, is very special to me. Her name is "Dorothy Stewart". Dorothy was given to my grandmother when she was in the second grade by her teacher whose name was Dorothy Stewart. Grandma kept her for decades and I never even knew she existed until my 16th Christmas and Dorothy Stewart was given to me for safe keeping.
The last little lady in cream, is "Alice Lee Shenk" I bought her at a auction sale about 20 years ago. At the same sale, I bought a silver calling card case and it had a card still in it that said "Miss Alice Lee Shenk". I also bought some silver sewing implements and the were engraved with ALS on them. So I thought it only fitting that she be name after her original owner.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friends! I hope everyone has a joyful weekend!
Linda

They are all very beautiful and I can tell they each have special meaning to you.
A lady used to live accross the street from my grandmother that made these type of dolls. I never did get one, but I used to love going to her house and looking at all her beautiful dolls:)

I loved hearing how you came to name each doll! They are beautiful!

BTW, I almost jumped out of my chair when I read your comment on mine about having a teapot to match my vase!! Would you mind posting a picture of it? I would love to see it!

I love your dolls! Oh, they are so elegant and beautiful! They remind me of the doll that Sarah Cruise received from her father in "The Little Princess". Thanks for sharing.

They are all quite beautiful, and I loved hearing how they were named. My other and one of her aunts were named Dorothy.

Oh my goodness! I had a Show and Tell when I was little, and I'd forgotten all about it! I LOVED it! Thanks for bringing back a blast from the past! I have a doll collection as well, and most of them have stories too. I enjoyed seeing your treasures!
Blessings,

Your friends are lovely. So proper and with such fine manners too. They are the easiest kind of friends certainly. They never say the wrong thing and are always ready with a quick smile :)

PEA said...

Your dolls are so very special, especially the one from your grandma!! I'm sure all their original owners would be very glad that they have found such a loving home:-)

Penless Thoughts said...

We're never too old not to love dolls are we? I love the way you've given them each such a special name.

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

I love the names, and reasons for the names that you gave your dolls!

I collect dolls too!
