These little kewpie dolls are dressed in handmade dresses and booties.....I just discovered them in a box of old toys that was under a pile of things in the attic....I'm recalling that they were leftovers from a church sale that I helped out at.....no one wanted them so I adopted them....I can't say I took such good care of them as they have been in the box for a very long time.
The title of this vintage book is Baby's First Objects.....I love the pictures......
These baby items were all family things that were passed down....the German baby dish belonged first to my Uncle Don, then Uncle Ted and then my dad......
A mother of pearl ring with a tiny sterling silver bell....can you see the little buckle? (click to enlarge)....a baby spoon monogrammed with the letter C and a monogrammed E on a silver and mother of pearl rattle...complete with baby teeth marks!.....Babytiques!
This package wrapped so charmingly arrived last week from Ruth at The Beautiful Life blog..... It contained my special, custom ordered pillow!!

To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
