Umbrella Girls, Flower Face Girls, And More!
The subtitle to this post could also be: How I Went Shopping In My Attic!
I've been thinking about these little flower face girls for months now. I thought they were probably in the attic, but it's so cold up there that I didn't really feel like digging around up there. But I really needed something for VTT today, so I threw on my coat and headed up there.
What I found was a shoebox full of cuties that I had forgotten I had! They all used to be on display, but several years ago I got tired of them, so they all got packed away.
Imagine my surprise when I started unwrapping the kind of things that I've been looking at on Ebay and drooling over! These girls look like they could be twins, but only one of them has their umbrella.
This one has a tag that proclaims her a Flower of the Month Girl, Miss Carnation, January. She's got a copyright of 1956, and she is adorable!
I think this one is my favorite, and I can't believe that I could have forgotten her. She's got a bluebird in her hand, for Pete's sake!!
This one reminds me of Little Bo Peep. Such a big ruffly dress for a little girl! Pull your dress down, we don't want to see your petticoats!
Lovely. Simply lovely!
I do remember this one spending a little time on my daughter's dresser. Did I snatch this little ballerina from her, and claim her as my own? I honestly don't remember.
Finally, a little choir singer, sitting in a gold wire chair. Sure wish I had known about this one at Christmastime. Ah well, next year. Have you found anything lately, in the recesses of your cupboards, or up in your attic, that you completely forgot about? Please tell me you have!
