Grateful for Mum... and Strawberry Shortcake


It seems like most days lately I have been thanking my Mum for keeping me sane, for helping or surprising me - but I was still blown away by her unearthing my original Strawberry Shortcake dolls!


Recently I got nostalgic about these childhood favourites, and tracked down some bargain replacements (see previous post here). Mum said she didn't know what had happened to my dolls, which is hardly surprising as it was a VERY long time ago. But somehow she found them!


They needed a bit of a wash which was a great holiday project for me and Miss 4 one day while Mr Toddler was having his nap. Soon we will get all the dolls together for dress-ups and a berry nice tea party!


p.s. My mum is so awesome that she made some of these clothes herself, and they are gorgeous. Thanks mum  :)

  2. Aw, that's brilliant that your mum found them! I asked my mum if there was any chance my old shortcake dollies were stashed somewhere, but sadly no. I've had to get some replacements! :)

  4. Your Mum rocks. Do you only have Strawberry and (was it Lemon Meringue)? Mum still has mine i think there are others there I'll ask if Summer still plays with them if not we will pass them on, since there will be no more granddaughters for mum! Becs xxoo

  6. That's gorgeous. I adored strawberry shortcake when I was a little girl and am looking forward to Miss A being old enough to play. I always remember I used to smell the top of her hair, the doll I had had that lovely strawberry scent.
