FANCY NANCY SUN DRESS THAT I MADE FOR MY FOUR and HALF YEAR OLD GRANDAUGHTER THIS WEEK SHE HASN"T SEEN IT YET! SHE IS CRAZY FOR FANCY NANCY! FANCY NANCY IS AN 18 INCH DOLL SOLD AT TARGET FOR LITTLE GIRLS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 3-8 AND SHE LOVES TO PLAY DRESS UPS AND WEAR OUTLANDISH OUTFITS. FANCY NANCY WEARS A CROWN ,  LOTS OF JEWELRY AND HAS TONS OF REDDISH  WILD CURLY HAIR. THERE IS ALSO A LINE OF BOOKS AVAILABLE, A STYLISH TELEPHONE AND HER OWN PUPPY! HER FAVORITES COLORS ARE PINK AND PURPLE, A REALLY FUN DOLL DESIGNED FOR THE IMAGINATION FOR THE YOUNGER SET OR BIG GIRLS LIKE OURSELVES!! 


OUR $ 75 FIND

ONE OF MY MOST SENTIMENTAL AND FAVORITE TREASURES IS THIS WASH BOWL AND PITCHER SET THAT MY HUSBAND BOUGHT FOR ME ON A FAMILY CAMPING TRIP  ON OUR WAY  UP TO BRITISH COLUMBIA MANY YEARS AGO. WE HAD LITTLE $$ AND 3 CHILDREN AT THE TIME AND CAMPED OUR WAY UP TO VISIT FRIENDS IN OUR VOLKSWAGEN CAMPER. WE FOUND THIS IN A LITTLE COUNTRY ANTIQUE STORE FOR  $75 , THAT TO US WAS A SPLURGE!

PITCHER  WITH ROSES
WASH BOWL WITH ROSES

MISS PINKY PINCUSHION COMPLETE WITH CROCHETED THIMBLE HOLDER "SHE'S SORRY" SHE FORGOT HER THIMBLE TODAY

POWDER PUFF, POWDER and TISSUE STILL INTACT

Happy PINK Saturday and thank you for visiting my blog! The dress is precious and I know your dgd will love it, what little girl wouldn't?! And that pin cushion is too cute! Did you make her? Love the Pitcher and basin. I remember my mom had a very large white set but I don't know what ever happened to it. So sad when family treasures vanish. Thanks for sharing and have a beautiful weekend, Nan

Beautiful powder box, Marilou. That's a treasure. I collect vintage powder containers or tins. I have a 1930's deco one by DuBarry's that I treasure. Yours is simply lovely.
I'd not heard of Fancy Nancy-she sounds like my kinda gal. I'll have to look for her next time I'm at Target.
Oh that precious gift from your dear husband. It's beautiful and what a lot of money that was then.
Happy Pink Saturday to you~

Chatty Crone said...

Thank you so much for coming to my blog today and commenting.

So Fancy Nancy - I have 1 grandson, one on the way, and a boy dog! No Fancy Nancy's.

So did you make Fancy Nancy a matching dress - my mom did that for me and Chatty Cathy.

By the way - another talented lady - that dress was beautiful!
