What Kathleen Sent Me

As I posted about before, many gifts were sent to me while I was in the hospital (I also bought over eBay so I'd have boxes to open when I arrived home). Kathleen of Rural Maine Life was sweet enough to send me a box of little dollies and I opened it up while still in the hospital!

Here is what she sent; Four celluloid dolls, you may remember my post on celluloid or find it here. The girl on the left is a Patsy look a like while the boy on the right has googly eyes.

A cute Annalee doll, seems to be missing a ball.

A dress me doll with a paper outfit and a pillow doll. Wouldn't that be cute on a larger doll bed?

This is a Topsy turvy doll, little red riding hood.

But wait! It's a Topsy turvy turn about doll, see the wolf that hides under grandma's hat?

Both of these dolls are Arranbee. The brunette is a early Littlest Angel and the blond is a Cody girl for the Cody line of make-up. I accidentally found that out while looking at the Littlest Angel.

This one reminds me of the Japanese animation, she's cute.

I don't know if this little one belongs in the box but doesn't she just make you smile?

Thank you, Kathleen! C&G Design

Dawn that was so kind of Kathleen to send you all those dolls!! She's a sweetheart of a girl anyway...we all know that. My lord...so many dolls though....that's pretty cool. I don't know if we are all going to be able to make the Christmas tree shop or not. I so want to meet Kathleen. We'll have to see how we are all doing soon. Congrats on the gift of dolls from our friend Kath!

Dawn I think that last doll was in the box as I was there when you opened Kathleen's box and I did see that one, in fact it was my very favorite of them all. Anyone that knows me knows why. 2 of my girls are red heads so the freckles always get to me!! However, she is sweet even if she did not have the freckles.

Kathleen that was so very sweet and it was a happy time for all of us when Dawn opened boxes. With all the setbacks that happened, we did not have a lot of happy moments for the almost month that Dawn was in the hospital. Therefore, Dawn's Mom also thanks you from the bottom of my heart!!!

Lovely dolls !!!! That doll which remind you Japanese animation is made in America after 2. world war and they collected money by selling them. They must have a name too, I have read about them in somewhere. I have too one doll like that and they have lovely hats too, those dolls.
