...through the little doll's eyes..." - Sweet Ghost Girl. "Coraline"
September has come and gone and now October is here. Yay! Halloween here we come! It has been a nice beginning to October. I've slowly been receiving some long awaited packages. Yup, the mail has gotten slower and will continue to be just as slow, unfortunately. I saw on the news, that container ships are all just waiting in the waters surrounding ports around the world to be off loaded, but well, it is what it is. And USPS is also charging more now too. So, here's what I got...
This is a lovely vintage 1930s ceramic toddler girl figurine, that reminds me a lot of those adorable Sun Rubber or Ruth Newton squeak babies we see often. This one, I was told by a fellow collector on IG is similar to a Irwin a brand that makes a doll named, "Miss Adorable". Not sure? Still it's lovely to find some type of information. The photo after is the rubber squeak my fellow collector friend has and the ceramic one side by side. Thank you Kayla for the info. and letting me share her rubber squeak too!!
I also received a surprise mail from Canada!! From a dear sweet friend, Alvina. I was very touched by the card and gift! Truly JoujouKawaii on IG is the sweetest and made my day! The card was just as adorable and inside what she wrote was so touching and kind words. I love you A. Thank you my dear sweet friend! I will treasure my little cutie for sure!!
This adorable celluloid baby rattle has a face and bonnet. I love this style rattle, my first one too. They can be expensive unfortunately. Darn. Oh well. I added a satin bow. Her original one was faded and ripped. I also found another plush basket pup with chain. I listed it in my Etsy shop and it sold within 24 hours. I was definitely surprised. But, happy someone adopted her. Too cute in red too! They aren't often seen even in Japan. I think because most collectors keep them! Ha!
I'm still awaiting four boxes from Japan that were sent seamail. Ugh. It is well over a month now. Hopefully sometime soon.
How is your collection growing? Have a safe weekend everyone!
