Such a nice story Iris! I have a little something from each of my grandparents. Now I need to make sure to share these stories and items with my children...even if right now they don't care!

irisriver

I have lots of tiny things of little value to anyone else that remind me of special times. My dad and I fished a lot when I was a kid. I still had his tackle box with all the fishing gear he bought me as a kid. I played with fishing lures like they were toys. Recently I donated it to a family friend who has a huge collection of fishing stuff. I kept the first lure that my dad bought me and the one that my grandfather gave to me. Grins and smiles!

It's true OandA...sometimes it's not the things of monetary value that mean the most. In fact, today, I was talking to my mom and she was telling me that my dad finally bought a "decent " toolbox for the front hall closet. It is kept just to hold a few essentials. The one that was there my dad built when I was a kid. Nothing fancy... in fact quite plain. Just a wooden tray with a handle really. Anyway when she told me the old one was outside awaiting trash day I freaked out! To me that toolbox is priceless because my dad made it. She better have gone straight to the garage and fetched it for me as soon as we hung up!!! I have big plans for that plain box!!

I don't have any big collections. Just a little of this and a little of that! Last year my mom gave her small china closet to my sister and we divided everything that was on it! So of course I had to get a new, bigger china cabinet to hold my new treasures!!

How true about chatting on each others pages. Keeps it fun and exciting! Dollcollector my sister died 6 years ago and this week was the anniversary of loosing her. Her oldest son has her doll and teddy bear collection because he has a young daughter. I have a neat paper doll collection that belongs to my mom from the 1930s. My main collection is stuffed animals. Grins and smiles to all!

joyfulnoise4

Oh that's ok dollcollector!! We all have our "chats" on one another's pages! So you never know who's page we will be chatting on or what the subject will be! I say you are 75 years young!! Hugs!

Dollcollector

Oh, joyful, this is your puzzle page isn't it? Not used to that on jigidi, and here
I am commenting to oldandancient, like it is mine. Well I will be 75 in a few
and you joyful are so young, you will forgive me, I must be losing it.

Dollcollector

joyful, I told my son and youngest granddaughter, that they must stay in the family.
I also mentioned that I will come back and haunt someone if they are not, he knows
I was referring to his wife. The lady across the street had mentioned to my
granddaughter, almost the same thing about the dolls, she didn't mention the
haunting part though. : ) So joyful, don't cry, the dolls will be taken care of, I will
make sure of that.

joyfulnoise4

Dollcollector...you are making me cry! Can't you leave your dolls to someone who will appreciate them? My daughter is not a doll lover. If she doesn't want my dolls someday, I will give them to someone who will love them. Even if it's outside of my family! Hope you are soon feeling better!

Dollcollector

oldandancient, please forgive me, I didn't scroll clear back to the beginning, and
after irisriver wrote about the 'wonderful stories on this page', I decided to reread
and refresh my memory, so until now I missed your two comments. I have been quite
under the weather, for over two weeks, so I will use that as a reason. I was not able
to handle the antibiotics that the primary care physician put me on, that I am
still feeling the affects. or is it effects, which ever, I am so sorry. The doctor apologized,
that was a first (the apology) and I sure won't use that med. again.

Irisriver, Thanks for the comment and for indirectly showing me the error of my ways. : )
I am glad you liked the photo and jigsaw. Does your sis still have her many dolls? Or are
they still in the family? Hope so, it is so sad, mine will probably be sold by the mother of
my youngest granddaughter, at a garage sale. As she hasn't kept any of the beautiful
dolls that she had while young, and that speaks volumes to me.

Lovely doll kitty and giraffe and wonderful stories on this page. My sister collected many dolls. Grins and smiles to everyone!

Dollcollector

joyful, it has been nice getting better acquainted with you, I am
about to fall asleep here, so I will say good nite and read a little
a book I just started by James Burke, until I fall asleep. Have a
good Sunday.

My dad loved his job and was very good at it. That being said, it was hard on family life. A lot of the time it was mom, my sister and I. Of course now dad is retired and driving mom nuts! Funny, we actually bought the piano for our daughter. She has taken just three years but has gone through more books than I can count. Last Christmas she even played for me to sing at church! Can you tell I'm a proud mom?

Dollcollector

You won't believe this, but I was close guessing at your father's livelihood.
I almost stated as such, but thought better of it. What an exciting life he
must have had, oh, I know he would rather have been home, and times
were not always exciting for him, it isn't all a big adventure like I would
like to think, I love spy and mystery novels, so I have a big imagination.

I haven't played in years, we bought the piano for my daughter, she took
lessons, I am self taught, and to tell the truth, I am sure I play be ear a
lot of the time, even though I read the notes. I should never have stopped,
but you can only spread yourself so thin, and I have done a lot of genealogy.
I have done so much, and am standing with my nose to a 'brick wall' and
cannot get past it. I can go back to early England on some lines, and then
on a few, I cannot get past the 3rd generation. My paternal ancestry
escaped from Russia, they were German pacifists, and came to America just
before 1880, but had settled in Russia. Yes, I could not believe that my
friend could let go of all the many dolls she gave me.

My dad always brought back a doll for each my sister and I. Mom always had them displayed on the shelves on either side of our fireplace. They were packed away for a long time after I was married because I had no where to display them. I finally got a small cabinet and had great fun unpacking them. My dad was a secret service agent and traveled the world for his job. Do you have a piano because you play? My daughter plays and is incredible! She has quite the gift! Wish I could just sit and play anything! How nice to have inherited a collection of dolls! My mom has been passing hers down to the three granddaughters!

Dollcollector

Joyful, I can see why you fell in love with her. I wish the story behind the
Middleton's marriage was not such a bitter one.
I would love to know more about your dad and his travel's, was he in the military?

I too have a collection of dolls from all over the world, I inherited them
from an 'Army brat', who had no children. Once I did spread them out over
the piano and took photos of them, but I am not a photographer, they are and
have been packed away in boxes for sometime now. Hopefully when things
get all settled down for me, I can buy a digital camera and learn how to use
it, if my hands will stay steady.

Glad you thought she was cute Dollcollector! I fell in love with her the first time I saw her! I have some other dolls I should post as puzzles. I have another sad face doll that my mom handed down to my daughter but it lives in my room (she doesn't like dolls). Maybe when she is older she will develop an appreciation. I also have character dolls from all over the world. My dad brought them back from his travels! One of these days I will get around to making puzzles! Hugs!

Dollcollector

Dear joy, this doll is precious, thank you for directing me to this jigsaw puzzle,
and I can see that you have posted many jigsaw puzzles that I intend to solve.
Today I will post photos of Lee's Baby First Moment, that is the same one that
we have in our collection. Thanks for sharing your doll photo. I won't repeat
here info about the doll I bought, as it was shared on Baby First Moment Awake
Jigsaw Puzzle, I think I have posted that one, if I haven't I will today along with
the one like I have for my granddaughter.

Oh! She is so sweet, she has tears on both cheeks, she is really heart broken,
I have only seen dolls with one tear, matter of fact, I am going to be posting
some soon, I think they are from Italy, they are not anywhere as near as
what she is though. I have solved this puzzle, and as of now I am close to
the bottom of the leaderboard. Again, thanks for sharing.

joyfulnoise4

My childhood dolls are still packed away. My daughter isn't a doll lover. This doll was bought for me by my husband! And I titled it wrong... it's a Lloyd Middleton not a Lee! Oops!

joyfulnoise4

Every year through 12 for me. My mom even protested as I got into my teens but I begged for dolls anyway! The close up I took of this doll was blurry. I will try again and make puzzles from some of my other dolls! Glad you liked her OandA!
