Sharing Dolls!

Hello Everyone, Every now and then I thought it would be nice to show some of my collection and things that interest me and it would be nice to see others as well the same. It is interesting to see what draws a person to collect a certain something and the reasons behind it so if you are ready my e-mail, you are now tagged to saying something about what you collect or what you really like about something that you own. I will be checking to see and maybe do a follow-up ..if enough people get involved. One of my loves and interests are tiny bisque dolls with molded hair. They are indeed hard to find but there is a charm all about them that draws me to them... imagine the history if only they could talk! Here are some bargains I picked up in different places along the way. First is a beautiful molded hair doll with molded bows in her hair , the second picture has a type of bisque kewpie doll and a special tiny little doll my hubby bought me years ago when we renewed our vows. She is darling and struck me right away in the miniature show we found in Newport, Rhode Island. What a fun store! Can't wait to go back!

Hope you enjoy these pictures and looking forward to others fun things to show! Hugs, Folksie Linda

Another Cookie Bear- Sprinkles!

Hello Everyone!! Here is 2nd in my series of cookie bears-- meet Sprinkles! aka Sprinkles on top..aka Sugar cookie.. yes she goes by other names! Sprinkles is a cute silly little bear measuring 1 1/2 inches sitting and comes in her own little cookie jar. Sprinkles will be auctioned off on ebay under my ebay user name... primlinda999. Now for the recipe:

Sugar Cookies

You will need: 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 1 cup margarine or butter, softened, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, 1 large egg, 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon cream of tartar, and sprinkles.

Mix powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, almond extract, and egg in large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients except sprinkles. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease cookie sheet lightly with shortening.

Divide dough in half. Roll each half 1/4 inch thick on lightly floured surface. Cut into desired shapes (preferably teddy bears) with 2 to 2 1/2- inch cookie cutters. Sprinkle with sprinkles. Place on cookie sheet.

Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on wire rack. If desired.. don't add sprinkles until baked and cover cookies with buttercream frosting and then sprinkles-- Yummy! These are a tradition in my home every Christmas and now Easter too!
