Ain't Got No Junk In MY Trunk

Pffffffffttttt.
HA!  It's not even MY trunk.
It belongs to my friend, Ruthie.

I think I left you hanging
a few days ago.after
I promised a peek at what 
was inside some trunks
at Ruthie's house.

Ready to see?
Well, I am only opening ONE
this morning!
But both trunks are FULL of the same thing.
It's a bride and groom.
No! Not a REAL bride and groom, silly.
It's a set of Storybook dolls.
It's a whole trunk full of 
STORYBOOK DOLLS.
The other trunk is full of antique dolls.
LOTS of antique dolls.
I have SO MUCH MORE stuff to show you
BUT---
I have to get going.
There is lots to do.
SO---
If you are good-
very, very good-
tomorrow I will show you
some of the stuff that went 
out the door to the 
auction house!

Got any junk in
YOUR trunk?
Huh?
your photo name

There's a lot of junk in my trunk, dear, but I am not showing that on here ever.
Hope you have a good day and you had better post the stuff that went to auction.

Diana, Two trunks of dolls...a young girl's dream come true. And some older ones too. Ruthie was a great collecter. I think the junk in my trunk has shifted.LOL xoxo,Susie

Neat stuff, any doll collector would love to go through those.

Pam said...

Aren't we a little boastful about our butt today? Oh, you were talking about the dolls. Yes, those are awesome too!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Oooh, I love looking at dolls, Diana! I have no place to put them myself, but I do like looking at them. I guess they make me think back to when I was a child. I'd like to hear if these dolls went to auction.

Shirley said...

Good Morning, It is amazing to see what people collect. Some of her dolls bring back memories. I would have so much fun as I am sure you are. I laughed when I read your post yesterday. Have a beautiful day. I hope it is cooler there. Many Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Oh the dolls are like my nieces collection. Wow interesting in that junk first look.

I went to a Greek wedding many years ago and in the trunk a little more modern trunk. My friend who is the Mom had made over the years so much needle point things. knitting, and blankets to know end for her daughter as a surprise. I never knew Tina ever did anything being a full time hairdresser. Was all for her daughter as an extra surprise. If you know Greeks. They are so big in gifts for showers and weddings. I was so blown away when I was there.

So I was thinking in that trunk was things like that you would show. So your still going to surprise us to-morrow. So who knows what is in that trunk. Role call please.

Thanks for the peek a booo lady dear..

Have a nice day.

Nellie said...

What a wonderful doll collection! Well, I can't say that I even have a trunk in which to store such pretty things.:-) xo Nellie

Gretchen said...

Some little girl would probably love getting to play with all those dolls. Sweet Cheeks, maybe?

Bernideen said...

Mine is full of vintage linens but outgrew the trunk so I have some in those big office depot clear boxes you can see through. I have them separated like Spring, Fall, Christmas, Valentines so I can find them! Her dolls are terrific. Thanks for sharing Diana!

Hi, The junk in my trunk is not appropriate for auction.
I don't even want it but it keeps following me around.
We are home now and I am still tired. I did get the laundry finished. Hope to catch up on blog reading.

Okay, Now it is time to see what I have been storing around here. I really think I do not want to have to go through all of it when we get ready to retire or whatever!!
A trunk of dolls??
Some doll collecter will go bonkers, just not for me!
Know what I mean?
Blessings to you!! Roxy
