Vintage Dolls

If you were born in the late 60's early 70's then you probably remember Ms. Beasley. She was from the T.V. show Family Affair. I loved that show, and even had my own Ms. Beasley{not sure what ever happened to her} . I've kept an eye out for another one over the years, checking ebay every once in a while~ but she's a collectible and the auctions get pretty expensive $$$.
Last weekend while at the Flea Market looking for frames I spotted her!! I almost didn't even ask how much because I assumed it would be a ridiculous amount. So I asked, "How much for the doll"?{like I had no idea who or what she was} he said: "$9" I said: "how about $5"? I don't know what I was thinking because I usually don't do that, especially if it's something I really want!! He said: "fine, $5" What??? Wow!!!
Now I need to find her glasses!
Me on my 4th Birthday{1971}opening another one of my favorite dolls: Drowsy Baby. I have a slightly different version of my original{above}
Now if I could get my hands on a Blythe Doll, I'd be really happy!! I won't hold my breath, I think they're possibly the most collectible doll in the world! But wouldn't I love to stumble across one for $5 :)

I absolutely loved that show Family Affair when I was a little girl! A couple of years ago I sold a Mrs. Beasley doll that I had found at a garage sale on Ebay. I still haven't forgiven myself....
