Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone but not forgotten

IMGP1106

 

The doll bed was lovingly made by my grandfather for an older cousin. When she outgrew it, the bed passed to another cousin and so on until it came to me. I was the youngest granddaughter so here it stays. The stuffed animals were acquired through the years, the Raggedy dolls made by my mother. I still have the bed, the animals and the dolls. My childhood is gone. Grandaddy died years ago. Mom continues to make clothes for handmade dolls that are given to children in hospitals. While my childhood is long gone, the warm memories are never forgotten.

  1. 63 years ago I discovered ‘boys’ as opposed to ‘ toys’…sadly I gave all mine away and I have regretted it ever since…my Teddy that I had since birth, my fairy doll, Panda, and Sailor Boy , plus Jane who was knitted by my Mother…and many others….what a fool I was…. but even though they are gone they will never be forgotten…just like your dolls..well done for keeping them as part of your life

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Nancy. I have many many fond memories of playing with those toys. Needless to say, I was thrilled when the bed made it to our household. My children used that doll bed, too. The grandkids? Not so much. haha

  2. I can identify with this. I still have my Raggedy Ann and chair from 72 years ago. My mom made her and my dad the chair. Great Memories. I, too, like the sepia tone. I started the photo challenge. I am not good at keeping up with challenges. Life happens.
    Thank you for sharing this.

    1. Thank you for stopping by, Linda. It is nice to see you again. And glad you like the post. Don’t know how well I will keep up with the challenge, but will do my best. After all, my job takes priority. But it is good to dabble in blogging again.
