I was just given a sweet sweet gift from Nancy who lives in Italy. Her dad lives here in my town and I check on him once or twice a week for her and her brother who lives in Germany and older sister who live in Colorado.
Anyway Dad has moved to assisted living apartment and Nancy is here from Italy trying to disperse her parents items. The have had a lottery drawing among the kids and grandkids and whats left is a lot.
This is Nancy & Lois doll chest from when they were little ,neither one of them wanted it and there is 2 granddaughters they didn't want the old thing LOL
So I was making over it and telling her how precious it was on and on. She said Jan do you want the thing? I said of course I want it and offered to pay for it . However it was a gift to me from Nancy from Italy
She brought me a sweet box of chocolates from Italy also.
I love the fastener of this little cabinet,she said Lois painted the flowers back on the cabinet years ago when they were still home
Now for the little treasures in the doll cabinet, a little purse ,stuffed animal from some trip to circus , a baby bottle , an vintage snap billfold,and wait for the Bride Doll !
love her dress
I figured I would put my blue & white childrens dishes in this cabinet
this is everything that was in the cabinet
I love the hinges on the doors also
all my blues and then I have another small set of dishes
These were my youngest daughters doll dishes given to her by my Mother , a few pieces got broken
The little tea pot and cup & saucer on top shelf I bought years ago at a sale
This little doll Nancy said an Aunt brought it back to her from Italy when she was a little girl she can still remember
