I have so many wonderful collectibles acquired over the last 80+ years. Some were gifts, some were part of my life growing up, some were inherited, some were purchased at antique malls, gift shops or thrift stores – all are precious to me. Some items are kept up year-around while others are brought out seasonally and on holidays. Unfortunately, many priceless-to-me objects go undisplayed and unseen for years, so each week, I’m going to pull out an item and post a COLLECTIBLE OF THE WEEK.
I have a small assortment of little bisque dolls (2-3 inches tall), all gifts from my older daughter. I love the tiny bride and groom in their late 1920s clothes. The groom wears gold-rimmed glasses and has a wonderful coat with tails.
These two little girls might be standing outside the church watching the newlyweds come through the doors.
This is a wonderful collection of Dutch figures.
Dutch items always go up in my kitchen in January when I’ve taken down the Christmas decorations and the other little cuties are in other spots in the house throughout the year.
