~For the Love of Baby~

~Not sure what it is but I just love these old Composition Baby Dolls. I'm not picky one bit, as a matter of fact, the ones that have faded eyes, arms or legs missing, stuffing falling out are the ones that I love best.~
~It's as if they were LOVED SO MUCH by A SWEET LITTLE GIRL they chose to save her in a box until someone like me would give them a home and love them as much as they did. Better then the landfill~
~This precious little one has darling molded shoes that don't come off, I was lucky enough to have a friend barter her, for some of my treasures on the website. A happy trade for sure! And she came all the way from California, Thank you MJ from YellowBeachDog Blog!!! She loves her new home~
~If you can find just the right clothes, you can't see their broken limbs, cracks or insides falling out. I believe it was age 5 when our family went to "THE HOUSE ON THE ROCK" and I was scared by the Dolls on Main Street, yet I kept going back to them and looking at them~
~I put a child size veil on this one to hide her cracks on her head~
~This doll reminds me of Alice In Wonderland, now just to find clothes. Do you see the PLATE in the BACKGROUND? I cannot for the life of me find any information on them. They are in French and Croatian and given to me by a friend here in town who told me to sell them in my shop or website....WHAT???? I DON'T THINK SO!
~These two are my worst ones but they are buddies and came to my house together. Arms a missing and all....
Those are my baby shoe from when I was a baby. So glad Mom kept those and I can now display them~
Are you baby doll crazy too???? I always have been, always will be and happy I had all girls that loves dolls too!!!! (cept Maddi asked me to please take them out of her room cause they scare her....LOL)
Hugs and Love, Amy

I have long since loved and collected composition baby dolls. But, the paper crowns make them downright irresistable. I love those!

Amy!
I'm laughing so hard about (cept maddi asked me to please take them out of her room cause they scare her...LOL).
I too love the old dolls so took my two best ones (not cracked or scary at all) and put them in my dd's room.
She's 10yo and has never been a "doll" girl, she likes stuffed animals far better. She was having trouble sleeping and told me that one of the dolls eyes were "following her".
Oh, and did I mention that she has the most amazing imagination I've ever seen?
The dolls are now in my studio...LOL!
Anyway, I came over to check out your blog on Amy's advice (Mittens Amy). Love it and will follow.....

I love love love old dolls and doll parts! My family and friends think that I am weird but the worst the doll looks the more I love her. And you can never have too many.. I think I have about 40 or more and I have many doll parts. I am so glad I found your blog by way of Mittens.

You have quite a collection there! They are all so sweet and have been so well loved. I don't collect dolls - but my mom does. She has over 1000 of various kinds. I love the old composition ones the best.
