The Tall Dolls Have a Parade

 Dear Friends,

Since we were in Idaho on Independence Day, our annual Tall Doll parade had to be postponed until we were home again. This year's judge included Kaffeen the Wonder Dog, whom we brought from Grandma's (leaving her with only five more dogs), and Senora, the Evil Foot-Eating Kitten.

 The floats included entries from the Nature Bature Club~

 Miss Victory (portrayed by Miss Molly McIntire, of course)~

Miss Dorothy rode Matilda, the resident steed~
 And Becky Button Nose pushed her twin babies in the stroller~
                                                                 "Go, USA!"

 Ammon the brave and his foes, the sheep robbers~

There was a float for "Mormon Pioneer Women"~

. . .And for Miss Merry Hearts, as well!

 The dolls' postal service, Kitten Post was quite patriotic. . .

 In short, a lovely time was had by all.

We hope you enjoyed our little parade today. I can't wait to see next year's, can you?





  1. I did enjoy it very much. Thank you for sharing it with us! You all certainly have some very creative names for your pets and dolls!

  2. Came by for a visit. Thank you for sharing in pictures and words. Blessings.

  3. The Doll’s Spectacle was entertaining, mother! Your post was very respectable ☺
    I love you!

  4. It was a wonderful parade...what memories you are making for your always many blessings to you all.

  5. What a parade! You know, I was just looking at your comment on my blog. It is uncanny how much we are on the same wave length, and so often! I was commenting on your blog the same time you were commenting on mine. But what struck me was your words about my laundry closet being "magazine ready" soon. Do you know I had those exact words in my post but reworded to Shabby Chic. So you just put those words in for me, in the comment section. Crazy, huh? We do think alike! Hope you are getting settled back in!


  6. Dear Marqueta,

    Oh how I love a parade! I'm so glad it didn't rain on your parade.

    The dolls look fabulous in their outfits.

  7. What fun, Marqueta!!
    Your girls have some graet dolls there!
    love..Trish xx


Thank you for coming to visit — I look forward to hearing from you!
