This is Joy

My friend Judy gave me this beautiful American Girl Doll.  I've named her Joy because it's such a joy to have a doll as an adult.  My Mother loved dolls and she passed that love on to me.  As a child I had a lot of dolls and my mother made lots and lots of doll clothes for them.  One Christmas my Uncle Robert even made a doll closet for me converting an old TV cabinet.  Of course growing up in the 1950's this was pre-Barbie days.  I had Terry Lee Dolls and a Revlon Doll (which I still have).  My Terry Lee dolls went "missing" while I lived on Sherwood Drive.  Oh, how I wish I still had those as well.
