When I was a child, I had many dolls. Most of them were gifts from my Grandmother. I had Bonny Braids and Tiny Tears and big mama dolls, and drink & wet babies. When I was about 10, my parents decided my brother and I should give away some of our toys to a poor family. My brother, who was only 8 at the time, gave away his train set, and I gave away all my dear dolls, but two. This is one I kept. We didn't mind giving our toys to children who had less than we did. Unfortunately, we made the mistake of visiting this family about 2 weeks later. There were my beautiful dolls battered and broken, strewn about the floor. The train was ruined, too. It took some of the joy away from the giving, as I had loved those dolls because they were from my Grandma. My brother and I were both rather traumatized from this incident and we both still remember it very clearly. Neither of our parents recalled any of this.

This is EuroGirl. She is one of my favorite modern dolls. My two grandnieces each have one, so I always think of them when I look at her. She lives in the computer room with me. I love her sweet smile. She can wear Magic Attic clothes (slim 18" size doll).

Here is the new etagere that came yesterday. I think it has very nice detail and is the perfect display piece for my vintage brass set. This set is from the 1940's, there is one more piece that is not displayed, a tiny lamp about the size of the smaller vases. I have never seen another set like this one. It came with my dollhouse that I received as a gift when I was 10 years old. The pieces are heavy, so I believe it is real brass.
