Sepia Saturday 109 21st January 2012 Dolls Are The Theme Creepy Is My Pick

This weeks theme for Sepia Saturday is dolls. Last night I was busy working on updating my family research and spaced out taking a look at this weeks theme.

My first thought was that I would not find any old family photos with dolls. My baby photos had stuffed animals. On second look at this photo I see what is a doll on the left hand side.

The pretty baby is me of course and I am in my little tub. Mama writes there was no water in it so I am safe I guess. The note says I am chewing on my yellow duck. This picture would of been taken in 1949 and we were living in Texas, probably Baytown Texas.

I think the doll actually looks a little creepy, I sure did not have much hair at this time.

I love these old family photos. Thanks for stopping by for Sepia Saturday. I am sharing this over at Sepia Saturday. Take a look at others offerings on this weeks theme. Grace


  1. I remember having a little enamal tub just like yours. But I don't think I ever had a doll like that one.

  2. By my reckoning all the toys count, not just the doll whose body looks like a teddy bear.

  3. Somebody else had one of those dolls in their post. They were basically animal bodies with a glued on doll face. I remember making one for my daughter as Baby Bunting, but it had a sweet face and went with the nursery thyme of the same name. Lovely photo.

  4. I wonder whether there is a special name for those plush bodies with a doll face.

  5. I think one of my cousins had a doll like that. I thought it was supposed to be a little snowsuit or pjs. I didn't have much hair at that age either but eventually it grew in, as I bet your's did too.

  6. A very amusing composition with the dolls and baby lined up. That plush body doll reminds me of the snow babies figurines.
