Assorted dolls and stuffed animals enjoying State Beach.
Deb’s doll Buttons at in the front with the pink hat, at age 44 is the oldest. Buttons is one of the most beloved dolls I’ve ever known. She likes to wear hats but no shoes, and around her neck is an amethyst necklace and a gold necklace.
To the Button’s right is her constant side-kick Lucky. At age 36 he’s lost a little of his vibrant colors but not his love of life. Around his neck is a green scarf one of Deb’s first knitting attempts, and he also sports a real dog collar from our first dog.
To the right of Lucky is Molly, my American Girl Doll that I got when I was 55… a number of years ago 🙂
In the back row on the right is Cindy, she was adopted from the Secret Garden in Oak Bluffs 20 or so years ago. At her feet is a Black Dog pup and next to him are Ty, the bear from Boston, and Mittens a puppet dog with a hilarious sense of humor.
They say you’re never too old to have a second childhood and I say, you’re never too old to love and enjoy your childhood playmates – even if you got them during your second childhood 🙂
