My sister and me, Christmas, 1960s
Wishing everyone a blessed Christmas and new year!
I just love vintage (can I use that term?) Christmas photos like this. I had a doll a lot like that one on the right. She may even be the same one. She had a bump on the top on her back that you could press and it would make a sound, like a burp. I still have this doll, somewhere. Thanks for bringing back a wonderful Christmas memory.
A most blessed Christmas to you and yours!
Thank you … and to you and yours! Yes, you may call the photo vintage – that’s accurate! I have strong memories of certain dolls from my childhood, though it would be difficult to say why some are more memorable. The one I’m holding looks almost as big as I am. I wonder if the doll in the picture is the same doll you had … could be!
What an adorable photo! I hope you had a very Merry Christmas. And I hope you have a very Happy New Year too.
Thanks so much, Jana … I do hope that your Christmas has been lovely and that the new year will be joyful and blessed for you and your loved ones!
What a fun picture. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Happy New Year!
Thank you, Sheryl! I hope the same for you and wish you a wonderful 2013. Looking forward to hearing more from your grandmother in the coming year …
Cute photo! It looks like my sister and I in the same time period. Even the dolls and PJs look familiar. I think my sister had a doll just like the one on the right! Happy Blogging!
Thank you very much! I love that the photo evokes its era enough to be familiar to other people. Thanks so much for stopping by …

"Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about."
