My friend Shelli, from Teddy Talk, asked us to take photos of our own collections…. much of my own “stuff” is still boxed up, even though we’ve lived here almost two years now… shame on me…. I did have this funny little picture of myself though, posing with my very first collection. Raggedy Ann dolls. I often imagined that MY toys would come alive and have fantastic adventures too… just like they did in the Raggedy Ann books.
That’s me, circa 1973…. blending right in and becoming ONE with my very first collection! My Mom used to sew all of our Halloween costumes, and they were always so special… we saved everyone of them!
