I was asked if I still had the 'Gone with the Wind' Scarlett O'Hara doll that was in the picture of my mother and I shopping (my mother's day post). The picture was taken in 1941 on the streets of Pueblo, Colorado.
Well, of course, I do -- I'm the queen of pack-rats and have kept everything!
Here she is today.
She was much loved, and played with constantly. She needs a new hairdo, has lost her shoes, and her petticoat; but she still has her original dress and straw hat. When I was a child I wanted to grow up to be beautiful like Scarlett; but, alas, I grew up to be plain Sally. In retrospect, maybe I am a little like my Scarlett doll -- after all of these years, I'm a little worse for wear, too. At least, I didn't lose my underwear!
I will be linking up to Suzanne at Colorado Lady
