My Christmas doll

My Christmas doll, given to me by my hubby.
Isn't she darling? I love these dolls from the 1940's or 1950's.
I received my very first doll 50 years ago, so I sure haven't changed too much.
Getting a new doll thrills me more than getting jewelery or clothes.
However, I still love getting a book more, but don't tell the dolls that!
This is a Madame Alexander named Wendy. I don't know anything else about her.
Her hat, clothes, socks and shoes are original.

She's adorable. I still like receiving dolls too. I even make it easy for my husband by picking them out myself. :) I don't know anything about that doll, but there must be information online. How tall is she? Happy New Year!

She is sweet! I just took a peek at your doll blog too.
I was looking at your photos over in the side bar.. oh my goodness, that could have been me! I lived in Vancouver when I was a young girl in the 60's.
