Japanese Dolls



For Christmas we spent part of the day with my sister-in-law and her family and my mother-in-law in Mesa. My mother-in-law gave my daughter a very special present this year, some Japanese dolls she brought back from Japan after spending a year there in 1953. My daughter seems to be the grandchild carrying on her love of Japan and will be spending a month there in July.

What adorable dolls! I wish that I had kept the doll that my father brought back from Singapore in the 1960's...

What a lovely picture of your mother and daughter!!

It's wonderful that your daughter shares an interest with your mom - she'll treasure those exquisite dolls forever.

Amazing! The precious, beautiful Japanese dolls from the 1950s are something to be treasured. Lucky daughter. You just gotta love these dolls' clothes and their life-like facial expressions.
