Things I Heart | Cultural-Souvenier-International Dolls

No matter what name they are called, or what they look like. If it is pretty, or unique I will probably like it and want it in what I call my "Foreign Doll Collection". I'm actually working on putting together a post of photos of all the dolls I have, some which are actually not foreign and are from America, but that is slow in coming since most of them are packed up and finding the box(es) that they are in is difficult since they are buried in my piles of things for my future home. I'm working on it though so hopefully one day you will be able to see my own personal collection. Until then you will have to enjoy these photos of dolls I'd love to add to my collection. I have some dolls similar to a few of these, but they're all so unique I wouldn't mind having another one or five! :)

Vintage African American Dolls.
These are my favorite kind of dolls to add to my collection. I usually shop at yard sales and flea markets to find these types of dolls. The authentic, unique, dolls with historic value.

I suppose that is all for now. I could go on and on...but that could easily bore some, so I will control myself and stop the photos for now. I will eventually post my own collection of dolls...but who knows when that will actually be. I do what to show it off. Some of the dolls in the collection I've picked up at random places and know very little about. I've researched them as best as I could and still know very little. Anyway, thank you for reading through...I promise next week will be less dull! :)
