I think my Mom is going through her second childhood. She had found a couple dolls back in the early spring at the flea market and it has really grown it such a hobby. She actually has more dollies than doggies! Well, maybe not, she has a chair full of stuffies doggies, but she has collected quite a few dolls.
She is into Portrait Dolls. They are dolls that are made to resemble specific people, in most cases celebrities. Here are some of the dolls she has collected so far.
This is her latest addition to her collection.
This is Elizabeth Taylor
She even has the violet eyes
BTW - Mom searched the internet and Elizabeth actually DOES have violet eyes!
"I Love Lucy" star, Lucille Ball
Mom remembers watching this show as a child.
She thinks Lucy is so funny.
These are Mom's favorites.
"Gone With the Wind" is her absolute favorite movie, so it stands to reason she would have dolls to go with the movie. She has two Scarlett O'Hara dolls and a Melanie Hamilton Wilkes (in the middle). Scarlett was played by Vivien Leigh, and Melanie was played by Olivia DeHaviland.
This doll is from the Robert Tonner Company. Mom thinks she looks more like the character than the Franklin Mint doll (doll in green in the above picture).
