Vintage Thingie Thursday 3/11/2010

Suzanne @ Coloradolady hosts  this fun way to show all of those treasures that have been wanting to be shared with everyone.

Today I'm sharing my most treasured item from my childhood.  In 1957 I received a bride doll for Christmas. I named her "Edie Bell" after my paternal grandmother.  I keep her in my curio cabinet behind glass so she dosen't get dirty.  I have been meaning for years to have her hair redone at the doll hospital here in town but have never done so.




This picture was taken Christmas morning with my two sisters and their gifts.  I have managed since 1957 to keep all of her accessories except her high heels. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Your old Christmas picture is so cute!

That is a real treasure you have in that doll. I would probably leave her as she is unless it needs repairs badly. They might change up the original features.

She is beautiful and in such amazing condition. You look soooo happy in the Christmas photo. I had a similar wedding doll (still do) but I wasn't so kind to her and she doesn't look so pretty any more.

She's a beautiful doll and you've kept her so pretty. Happy VTT,have a great weekend.

I still have my bride dolly from around the same time, too. She was my best friend and doesn't have much hair left because I must have been a little beautician back then! Must not have been a good one, or she'd still have hair, right!? Yours has such a sweet face and beautiful dress. Thanks for sharing! ♥♪

She looks so great yet! My dolls were in pretty sad shape by the time I got done with them. I love the 1957 Christmas pic!

Wow!! Your bride doll is 53 years old and she looks fantastic. What a fabulous childhood treasure. The family Xmas photo is lovely.

Thanks so much for sharing, especially the picture from Christmas, when you first got the doll. Peace, Stephanie

Oh, she's so beautiful! And what a gorgeous dress! My two sisters and I received bride dolls one Christmas, late 50's, but we ruined them! I'm so glad you kept her in such good shape!

I see those pillowcases in the above post were done with Liquid Embroidery! My mom and aunts were so into that in the 70's!
