Little Things

I have been busy trying to clean out little items packed away in dresser drawers in my studio and finding some little dolls I forgot about some good some not so good or cute I should say.
I am still having trouble with my camera and bought the same camera on ebay for a steal of a price however it doesn't focus any better than mine that I dropped. So it wasn't any steal at all.
Oh well if I wasn't planning two expensive trips I would go by a high price camera ,but for now I'll just make do I would rather travel around and see people and places. right?                                                    

This little dolls is similar to 3 others I am trying to get pictures of to list and sell. However I am not ready to part with my little pitiful looking china head dolls  that I bought at an estate sale that an old lady had kept all her life 

I have several of these copper engraving plates that came out of a jewelers sale ,it's where someone practiced engraving for jewelry . I have a couple framed with my initials and years ago I sold several at a flea market that had names engraved on the plate. As you see I am still uncovering items to discard. I have packed in treasures for years. It was always my entertainment .Now I'm 
entertaining myself getting rid of them LOL I like the plate with the J on it for my name 

If I wasn't almost embarrassed to tell you my age I would let you know I am going to what would be my 50th high school reunion In Mt Vernon Illinois this year . You can figure out how old this old lady is .
But i'm young in my thinking and actions LOL Does that help any ? LOL

Link parties to check out 


  1. You are as young as you want to be!! I was surprised when I went to my 10 year reunion...the men had aged really bad and the women were beauties! I haven't gone to any since. I didn't know you lived in Illinois, too!

    The dolls are so cool! Do you have an idea how old they are? With the heads made of china it must be hard to find anything in good condition. Nice collection!


  2. Love the cute dolls! Those are so sweet. You are not that much older than I am-just a couple of years. How the heck did we get to be this old? lol I need a decent camera but just can't seem to justify spending the money on one...maybe one day....

    Have a great week- xo Diana

  3. Your dolls are so sweet. What a wonderful collection. Have fun at the reunion. Age is just a number. Like you said, you are young in your actions and thinking!!
    I need a new camera too, but keep putting it off, thinking, oh well this one is okay for now. LOL

  4. Those dolls have tons of character...if they could only talk, lol. Love those jewelers plates just the way they are. A young mind and spirit is more important than a'll have a great time.

  5. Those dolls are probably worth a small fortune! So sweet!

  6. You are only as old as you feel!
