I am “killing two birds with one stone” today as I share by antique doll both as my photo for today as part of Project 365, and also for my Show and Tell.
I was given this doll as a child, and it has nearly always sat in my bedroom, wherever I have lived. It belonged to a friend/relative of my grandmother. She has what I assume is her original hair and clothes. She has 3 separate undergarments, and then the outer dress. All now showing their age, but not too bad for approximately 100 years old. She also has a hat, but that has fallen down the back of a heavy bookcase, so was not available for the photo shoot!
She has a manufacturers name of Limbach at the back of her neck, and was made in Germany. Her head is bisque, and not sure what her body is made from, but she has lost a couple of fingers.
Thanks for visiting my blog today. What is your oldest treasured item?

Have an english friend flying over tomorrow for a couple of days. Have not quite decided where we will take here, but whatever we do I will be taking more photos of my photo-a-day project! Come back and see where we have been.
