China dolls adrift!

Adrift!


These are some of my favorite things....tiny china dolls  and one tiny paper mache doll.

They are sailing in a little wooden boat, that I found at the flea market for $40 and a wonderful carved whale that probably had a stand ...long gone .

Yes, it was a lucky find.





                                                                               

    One day as I was cleaning up around here,
  I started moving things around and couldn't resist   the temptation to "play". After all, what is the  use of having all these little treasures if you can't have a bit of fun with them.

  My husband bought the ship model a few years ago and it sat in his office for a while collecting  dust. I happened to notice it and decided it was a  really cute ,especially since it had a little captain  with a spy glass. Perfect for my little dolls.

    We love your little boat and ship! We are so glad that the fair maidens were rescued by the valiant captain! We, too, like to take time out whilst cleaning for some fun play with our dolls and toys!
