Throwback Thursday! Summer 1950?

Not  100 percent sure of the year...I'd guess I was 5 or 6--with my favorite doll.  She had golden blond hair that I could set with curlers and brush and make beautiful!

What a sweet photo. It's funny - I remember chairs like that, but only seeing it now in your photo did I realize that I don't see chairs like that anymore. Now they're all sweaty sticky plastic or expensive upholstery. I miss good ol' wood.

I LOVE IT!! From early in history, every girl has had a real or imaginary favorite doll.

My dad made a set of Adirondack chairs when I was little - 2 singles and a double. They must have been popular back then!

OK, we've just met so you don't know this about me, but I LOVE dolls, particularly ones from our childhood! This one in your picture looks so sweet!

I did an entire story about my doll Tubsy, it's quite pathetic, actually! Thanks for the sweet picture, loved it!

it was a "fun" time wasnt it?

So cute!

I had a thing about poking my dolls' eyes out. I'm sure therapists would have had something to say about it. I liked Barbie type dolls you could play imaginary world games with and of course make her date G.I. Joe ("not on the first date, Joe, I'm not that kind of girl!") but baby dolls I hated so they got mutilated. I think I might be a little messed up. I blame this on why I don't want kids. :)

I had a doll that had hair I could fix, too! When I read this post and thought about that doll, I could almost smell the hair gel.

Karin said...

What a lovely photo! I still have my favorite dolls in a trunk in my garage. I can't bear to part with them. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I love it when people visit!

Steven Anthony said...

Nezzy said...

Aren't you and your little doll a couple of cuties? I have a picture of myself in one of those chairs before I could actually stand. Mom tied me in a standing position to take the pic. Heeehehe! Your photo is great! Thanks for sharing it with us.

Enjoy this day filled with blessings!!!

Love this photo! I've also been a bit nostalgic lately - think it's the winter blues?

Love this photo!! You are too cute! Seeing that chair really takes me back!

Eva Gallant said...

Tatty: We don't see those chairs much anymore.

PJ: I can't remember my doll's name; that's sad!

AnythingFits: I'm impressed that you remember your doll's name. I'm blank.

Glen: Fun and sure was!

Veg: OMG! Your mother must have freaked! poking out those eyes! lol

DJan: I remember the little pink rollers--the resembled the ones used for perms today.

Karen: I wish I'd kept mine; it would have been fun to give them to my granddaughter!

Steven: Yep! Those were the days!

Nezzy: We had several of those chairs as I recall...don't know what ever became of them.

Blackberry: Gotta' say--it's 48 degrees and sunny here today. What little snow we had is melting fast.

Middle: Yeah, those Adirondack chairs just aren't that popular today.

Adorable. Wish I still had some dolls from my childhood. I think I nearly destroyed most of my barbies and cabbage patch figurines though.

Jen said...

You look more like 7/8!!! Nice picture, brings back memories, huh?

Tam said...

Back in the day when all you needed was a doll and a batteries, no computer, no phone... I miss that!

lakeviewer said...

I just love these photos; they speak volumes. Were you an only child?

The Retired One said...

Looks like a hot day...!
Do you remember them taking that exact photo?
I remember when I was about 3 or 4 someone taking my picture when I woke up, and was standing in a hallway with a long nightgown on....funny how you preserve some memories and not others!
In 1950, I wasn't born yet, but that is the year my husband was born!
Cute photo!

Too cute

Candice said...

So sweet!

I wasn't really into dolls as a kid, but the one doll that I DID have with hair, I managed to give her a buzz cut.

Butch Barbie. Yeah, SO not cute.

Eva Gallant said...

Stereos: Aww, shucks! lol

Mandy: I don't have any of my dolls. Just that picture.

Jen: I wasn't sure of the year that was taken. You may be right.

Tam: We were so easy to please. I think it's because we had so much less than kids do today!

Rosaria: Would you believe I was the youngest of seven kids; 3 boys and 4 girls. I don't know how my mother did it!

Retired: I don't remember the photo being taken, and my sister says she thinks it was probably 1951 or 1952--she thinks I was probably 7 or 8.

Respectfully: Thanks.

Candice: Butch Barbie? You crack me up!

Miss Fanny said...

I still have a couple of my dolls. I am embarassed to say that I continued with them until well past the time it was cool to play with them. At some point, I tucked them away to save for my daughter. Nice memory!

Unknown Mami said...

Yay! You know how much I love Throwback Thursday!

gayle said...
