I thought I'd play along with Pip's game today, what a great theme...
These are some old friends of mine who hang out on the shelf in my room.
This is the orginal Charlotte who once had a voice. The cavity that held the voice box was a good hiding spot for contraband when I was 15. Now she leads a quieter life and loves to look at birds out the window.
Helen Holiday once spent some time at the Doll Hospital, in Melbourne. She had to have a major & extremely important hair operation. She came back wrapped in brown paper with luscious locks that were so fun to brush.
Small Ted once belonged to my first ever boyfriend, Antony. I made him a shell necklace many years ago when I was a young and careless teen. Antony died when he was nineteen so Small Ted is extra precious and brings back memories of someone who I loved so much.
Big Ted was found languishing in an opshop many years ago. A quiet soul with a mysterious past, Big Ted is very fond of Helen. I think he whispers secrets to her at night. (She is a good listener & very trustworthy.)
My shelf of dolls and toys is a happy place - it reminds me of the child within me, of playing and make believe and special parts of the past that are close to my heart. For more shelves check here xo
