Show and Tell Friday


Dolls are one of my many collections,I collect porcelain and cloth dolls.I love dolls,I guess I am still a little girl at heart because I had just as soon buy a doll or make a cloth doll as I had to buy anything.This is just a few of my porcelain dolls.Some were ordered from Ashton Drake others were given to me by my mother and husband for birthdays.I also love to collect cloth dolls that were made by others,I do make them also and can never seem to part with the ones I make,unless they were made especially for a doll swap.I have cloth dolls made by ladies from Canada,Australia,and other countries also America.I will have to post the cloth dolls on another Show and Tell.The doll in the second picture was the first on bought for my collection.She was bought because she looked like my first grand daughter 14 years ago.That was the start of my collecting dolls.The last pic was a doll chosen because she favored my second grand daughter sister to the first grand daughter.It has been awhile since I bought a porcelain doll,but I think the time to buy a new one is nearing,(My husband will love hearing that).I slow down on the porcelain dolls when I started making cloth dolls.Hope you enjoy looking at my little beauties.

I used to collect porcelain dolls, but I had so many and no where to put them, so I got rid of them.

Look at all those ringlets!
I have a few porcelain dolls too. I happen to like brides, and I inherited the few my mother had collected, but honestly, I've no where to put them, so they are all carefully packed and stored.
I'll bet you enjoy seeing your little pretty dolls daily :0)
Thanks for sharing!

Love your dolls. Is this a coincidence? We are both named Charlotte and we both love and make dolls. I mostly made porcelain dolls - all back in the 80s. I have made a few cloth dolls as well. I made a blog just for my dolls. You might want to visit it sometime. It's called Dolls Dolls Dolls. Here is the url http://mydolls-charlotte.blogspot.com/
I would love to have you visit.
