I had more doll clothes than doll shoes. My mom tirelessly sewed my dolls new outfits. I would come home from school to a new coat for my dolls in the winter and a short set for summer. My dolls had towels, purses, their own dolls, panties and yes, even shoes.
I thought about my little doll shoes today when I saw Stella sitting with her legs crossed on my little brown school chair. Stella is Kid4's first doll. She loves Stella! Stella joins us for all of our trips and accompanies Kid4 to bed nightly. She is a faithful little doll, soft, warm and full of love for my kid4. There she sat with black patent leather shoes on today and it made me think back to my choldhood, to my dolls and to their shoes.
I asked my darling girls to gather some of their doll shoes so I could put my hands on those little tiny darlings and remember good carefree times.
