I LOVE their FRILLY, LACY Dresses ~

Some of my recent garage sale finds are these Lovely Little Ladies - all SO unique, SO pretty, SO old, & with such great character ~~

I love the little open/shut eye ladies ~~ each one is so different & they have such pretty dresses~

The two little girl dolls are old & very cute ~ they are "Bubble Gum" & "Milk Shake"!

The porcelain Victorian Lady is so Beautiful with that dreamy look on her face ~

The little Senoritas already have a place in my heart & for now I can't part with them - they are very old & very detailed with their lovely lacy skirts & veils ~

Well since I'm not a doll collector I won't be keeping these Lovely Little Ladies but they sure are pretty to look at & I will enjoy them until they're on their way to new homes through ebay!

Muscadine Memories with Mom....

I am really enjoying my summer & taking time to remember summer days when I was a little girl.

Early 1960's, one of my favorite childhood summer memories is of the six of us jumping in Dad's old white pick-up truck on a summer evening after supper & driving down dusty East Texas country roads in Carthage - we called this going on a "bunny hunt" & of course we were looking for bunnies.

AND Muscadines! I remember the excitement of finding a muscadine vine, picking them, & popping them in my mouth. They are a very distinctly different type of grape & it's a taste that just brings back my childhood summers. Takes me right there again.

Mom & Dad just came back from a trip with Muscadines from my Aunt Joy & we spent the morning making Muscadine Jelly ~ oooooh is it ever delicious.

And just look how pretty it looks in the jars - just looks like summer time!

Thanks mom for another wonderful summer memory!
