Slumber Party with Phyllis!

Welcome to the slumber party and don't forget to send some Birthday Love to Phyllis! Thank you for the invitation to join in!
I remember slumber parties fondly as a child. It was just pandemonium any time you got more than 3 little girls together. We would have never taken the time to appreciate all of the wonderful things around us like we do now.Like this old buttoned haired rag doll. She is made completely of vintage fabrics and lace and buttons. She sits so sweetly on the bed waiting for a little girl to play with.
She is never alone, though. She shares a cozy spot with this chenille bear. He makes that old pearl collar look great.I remember this old blanket. This was a small crib blanket that my Grammie made. It is certainly older than I am and still in perfect condition.Of course you can't go to a slumber party without something that reminds you of home and provides you comfort. This is the blanket I came home from the hospital with 42 years ago. It is so soft. I love the little kittens.Before tucking in for the night, there is always time to play. This is an old wooden play set that I had as a child. It was pink when I used to play with it. It got a fresh new look for my daughter.This was one of my favorite toys. This toy hi-chair went through 3 generations of girls in my family. It was my Mom's first and it was painted the creamiest white. Then it was given to me and it was pale pink. Now it is Shelby's. It has seen many dolly's in it's day!
This walk down memory lane has made me tired. But before turning in, a cup of tea and some favorite almond cookies. I look forward to coming to your slumber party real soon!

Loved reminiscing with you this morning, Sweetheart. You were always a "little lady" with a bit of "tom boy" mixed in for good measure. Enjoy.
