Treasured possessions from your childhood?
Yes. Pretty much the only possessions from my childhood, cos our mum had frequent clearouts. I only have the teddy cos Lucy rescued it!
Seems I could learn a lot from your Mum… 😉
I’ve learnt to have regular clear outs, but also not to get rid of things that I really want to keep.
Gorgeous glad you got a few memories, my mum was the same, with toys and photos.
On the whole I think it’s good to have frequent clearouts, so long as the important stuff is kept.
Cool pic, though I’m a bit spooked by the expression on the doll’s face “)
Yes she is a bit spooky isn’t she? My mum’s friend Mary stitched the face. When I was a child (with bobbed light brown hair and pale blue eyes) I thought the doll looked like me.
The doll looks new still, you must of treasured it as a child to look after it so well…
She doesn’t look quite so new in real life. Her hair has faded and there’s a slight water mark on her leg. But I still think she’s lovely 🙂
Interestng photo love the doll
Thanks for your comment – I’m impressed that you have two blogs and particularly like the idea of ‘pamperedmummy’ 🙂
I too had a lovely, handmade by Mary rag doll, … wish I’d kept mine as safe…
Thank you for keeping my teddy safe though. She would have been given away to a charity shop if it wasn’t for you.
I looked first and thought you were trying to recreate the old test card bbc used to show when programmes stopped!
I may have been subliminally influenced by the test card, but that wasn’t my intention.
