At least mostly today is.

I collect vintage toys and antique dolls...and McCoy Cookie Jars. Dreadful dust collectors the lot of them. My favorite toy is a rustic hand-made wooden replica of Fireball Roberts' racing car. Anyway, it's a huge chore to take each of these things down and clean them. It must be done very carefully. They live in high places.

My favorite doll is my 1880's German doll. She's the size of a three year old child and sits in a high chair on the chiffarobe. She has to be high up because she scares the dogs.



Anyway...I'm at that scary point where I've created more mess during the cleaning than I had to begin with.

I'm weeding through some things. I think it may be time to say bye-bye to the Little Miss Creepy Doll.

But I do still love my composite black baby. And big white composite baby still has a place of honor. But yeah....Little Miss Creepy should probably go. Just keep the 1930's and previous ones.

Gotta get back to it.




Itunes to clean to....

    Rosie, you and your siblings are well-versed in Southern hospitality, right? It's safe to say that you grew up in the Deep South, right?

    Did you ever see "Animal House?" How about your brother or sister? Mary Louise Weller, perhaps my favorite actress right now, is in that movie.

    Tehehe- it must be a dog thing! I have a doll that's about 3 foot tall too and my dog Harley is totally freaked by her.

    I have my dolls packed away at the moment till I redo the room they will be going in. Mine aren't nearly as old and beautiful as yours but I enjoyed collecting them. I have a mess in the diningroom right now. Pulling everything out and deciding what to toss or keep is making a big mess!

    Yeah...she's a horror movie waiting to happen.

    Buh-bye.

    Chris...Yes, our mother was a very gracious woman and made sure we were all schooled in proper etiquette, table manners, proper speech, dance and all that jazz.

    Yes, I've seen Animal House and I know the actress of whom you speak. Simone might have known her...they were contemporaries.

    Yes, Jane...she is rather Aunt of Chuckie...isn't she?

    The idea of you cleaning antique dolls to "My Humps" has made my day. Thank you.
