Beautiful Ladies ~ Antique German Half Dolls

 Antique German Half Dolls

I love antique German half dolls.  
I first saw them in a magazine and thought they were so beautiful.  I had to have one.....  then another.....  and another.....  and still another.
I never knew there were so many versions until I started looking for them.  Half doll pin cushions, lamps, vanity boxes, pillows and hankie holders.  
The two beauties in the first photo are the latest additions to my collection.  They remind me of Marie Antionette with the mohair wigs and lace dresses.  I am but a temporary custodian of such lovely things. 

It was gorgeous outside this weekend!  
Sunny and at least 65 degrees.  It was wonderful to work in the garden.  I was able to see tiny little buds peeking out.  Can you believe it was snowing just a few days ago?  Hope this means Spring is just around the corner.

Have a lovely week.

Oh, Elizabeth. My heart is going pitter-pat. I have my grandmother's pincushion doll which I adore. I've always been tempted to get more. Yours are truly beauties.
