Friday evening was pretty exciting. The doll lady who owns the doll museum dropped by with a surprise gift for me. She is in the process of closing the museum and needs to sell a lot of dolls, so I told her about the Facebook doll sites I belong to. I helped her get invited to a few of the sites, and right off the bat, she sold a doll. She was pretty pleased and very appreciative for the help so she brought me a doll.
This little lady is a Canadian made 1935 Regal Hairbow Peggy. She has composition head and hands and a cloth body. Someone has re-painted her face and hair, but still she is in great shape and is my new forever doll.
Imagine my excitement to think that a doll had survived 105 yrs, and that he was now my doll.
Paul and Peggy - how cute are they together... both dolls with age and history. I am so thrilled to be the owner of these two very special dolls. Just think of the stories they could tell of the children and the era they were played with... amazing.
I shall treasure them both for a very long time indeed, and when I am no longer able to care for them I will make sure they go somewhere where they will be preserved for years to come.
